“Post-pandemic, the fashion industry will rely on freelancers more than ever.”

“Post-pandemic, the fashion industry will rely on freelancers more than ever.”

There will be many more opportunities for freelancers in the future. Post-pandemic, the growth of that market is likely to accelerate. In the future, companies will have to be very agile when allocating their resources. It’s going to take setting up a system that allows for flexibility, less full-time employees and a larger number of freelance collaborators. As lockdowns lift, brands are likely to hire temporary employees that require less investment. Work with what you have! #StaySafe #GoodLuck
“Work with what you have.”

“Work with what you have.”

Companies that have seen their business models blown up by the pandemic are making dramatic changes in real time.With retail unlikely to return to normal anytime soon, embracing new ways to sell may be many brands’ only shot. Things are so up in the air that you need to move quickly and adapt. If you can tap into what people want and need right now, it’s the strongest way to survive. Work with what you have! #StaySafe #GoodLuck

Design by: Maria Araghouna. This year the winning wines were selected by an eighteen member panel who tasted 82 wines from 8 wine regions. The wine packaging was selected by VisitDebrecen and was based upon an international tender. The packaging design chosen was by a Danish designer and is intended to reflect the high quality of the Hungarian wines. The “Wines of Debrecen” competition was attended by the Debrecen Bormustra TOP20 wineries, many of whom already hold prestigious titles such as “Wine Producer of the Year” or  “Winery of the Year”.

Drop dead gorgeous Beni Ouarain and Azilal Berber rugs, woven by Moroccan tribes. Colors vary from neutral shades to popping hues, with designs ranging from ordered geometric shapes to a more free-form, expressive pattern. Part of the appeal to the modernists was the primitivism in the carpets. Unlike the traditional antique Oriental rugs found in Western interior decoration, there is little elegance about these rugs, yet they fit wonderfully with modernist décor.

Tadelakt is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Experts who watch home trends believe that Tadelakt will become the latest development for bathroom design and probably living rooms as well. It’s no surprise due to the many properties Tadelakt holds. For example, it is a natural and ecological product that produces a luxurious and decorative wall finish. Moreover, its waterproof seamless and rather mildly marbled appearance makes it ideal for bathrooms. Tadelakt is formed from lime distinct to the Marrakech constituency of Morocco. The word Tadelakt means “to stroke.” This caressing of the material is what results in its interesting...
