PETA's Campaign

Not only has monetary reasons made fur less fashionable in the past decade, but it has been more of an ethical and personal decision.  We have all heard and seen PETA’s aggressive Fur Is Dead campaign against fur, but aside from the blood, the rotting carcasses and sad-faced animals, does fur still emulates luxury?  Yes, sadly it does, but now a new trend has evolved and that is faux fur.  Many famous retailers and designers as H&M, Forever 21, Stella McCartney, BCBG Max Azria and Juicy Couture, among others, have made the conscious decision to forgo fur completely from their collections.  And what a fabulous choice this has been, not only is faux fur economically accessible to everyone but there is no apparent sign that distinguishes real from synthetic, besides not having a dead animal’s skin covering your body.

Every last Friday of each month, The MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) located in North Miami, Florida celebrates Art Walk & Jazz Night at the MOCA.  On its latest event, Mandrake PR was there to appreciate some local modern art.   During this wonderful night, a Colombian artist was included to the night’s repertoire and that was our very own Marl Vilaro. His collection of tribal inspired accessories were on display for everyone to enjoy next to other great pieces of art at the vintage fashion and art boutique, Art with A Purpose, located in 791 N.E. 125 Street, North Miami, Florida 33161.

Our experience of MOCA’s Art Walk & Jazz Night was one remembered as a moonlight night visiting art galleries while enjoying wine and jazz tunes by Jean Caze and as one, we recommend and we are sure to repeat. For more information about MOCA’s nightlife schedule visit: http://www.mocanomi.org.

Building a brand is easy to say but difficult to accomplish.  Mandrake Public Relations, as a full service public relations and marketing firm, has experienced the tenacity one has to possess in order to succeed in this market.  Creating new ventures and possibilities for unknown artists and designers bring many challenges as well as hard work, but the final outcome outweighs anything else.

Case in point, Marl Vilaro Accessories.  Little by little, this young accessories designer, together with Mandrake Public Relations, is creating a brand name in a distant country, one he has yet to visit.  But magically, his name makes way into this constant competitive bazaar of intricate creativity, where every day brings something new to the table.

Marl Vilaro Accessories has much to offer and is in his initial stages of having his official U.S. launch in the United States.  So stay tuned.

A Glimpse of Our Unsuccessful Photoshoot

As Mandrake PR is in the process of creating its own website, the Mandrake team was required to get professional but yet very artistic photos in order to properly complement the website.  We requested the services of the talented and young photographer, Tawfick De la Espriella for this special task.  And let me say, being a model is not as easy as it seems!  We envy those professional models that with a flick of a switch or with a snap of their fingers are picture perfect!! On the contrary, we mortals are succumbed to the trials and tribulations of standing straight while making sure we are aware of every single part of our body as we try to emit a sexy but yet demure image to the camera.

Giselle Bundchen, Kate Moss and Linda Evangelista, we applaud you for showing us how to work it, but for now, we are just going to leave the modeling sessions for the professionals.

The Mandrake Team introduces our new section called: It Girl on a Budget because we understand the great pleasure that comes with affording great fashion.  An example of this is a luxury handbags. What happens when you are unable to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on the latest Marc Jacobs, or a timeless classic as a Chanel?

Well, it is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so by going with a designer-“inspired” bag we are actually eulogizing a great piece of fashion.

So praise-be the Internet! Because there are many sites that can delight our in-vogue senses while we are on a temporary “saving mode”.  We recommend fashionjunkee.com or shopsueyboutique.com to provide you with fashionable handbags inspired by the great ones for quite the reasonable price.  Your options range from Marc Jacobs and Chanel to Balenciaga’s stylish “Motorcycle” bag.

And the It Girl, being the resourceful minx that she is, will explore different options and take advantage of them.  Obviously, it will never replace an original, but we should not let the current economic situation limit our chances of looking trés chic, so why not indulge?

Give us your ideas of how to be the perfect It Girl on a Budget, we will love to hear from you!

Mandrake PR was asked to represent a very talented and young designer. Warning: his style is very different; if you are in the search accessories with a showstopper attitude, Marl Vilaro accessories is just right for you.  Craftsmanship with passion.  Allured in a second.
