Exclusive Interview with Uta Bekaia for ANOLIE!

Avant-Garde Fashion Designer

By Christopher Uvenio

A fusion of glamour, daring and flamboyance. His work displays the theatrical touch of a Galliano, a Yamamoto, Viktor & Rolf and a McQueen. This is in a nutshell is Uta Bekaia.
Who are the top five designers you draw inspiration from, and why?

Alexander McQueen, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons, Viktor & Rolf,

W & LT (Walter Van Beirendonck). These guys play with forms and it is always more artistic than regular wear. 

What celebrity would you like to dress and why?

Grace Jones as she was in the 80s, because she was perfect; from right now, Merrill Beth Nisker from Peaches; I love her.
What top five models would you like to wear your clothes?

Honestly, I don’t care about models so much, but the more interesting and unusual they look, the happier it makes me. 

Do you consider yourself an avant-garde designer?

I’m totally avant-garde; my work is very much like art you can put on your body. I create more statues than clothing; they are “art wear”.
How do you see yourself fitting in the fashion industry?

The fashion industry has been changing and fashion has become more open and experimental, so I do think the future of wear is more theatrical and eccentric, and I also think people have come to the point where they want to show more originality, even if it’s through the superficial visual aspect of what they wear.

What types of women do you design for?
Women like Anna Piaggi and Isabella Blow (both dead): super-eccentric, androgynous, crazy and artistic bitches, with lots of money and endless imagination.

Are there any misconceptions about your designs you’d like to clear up?

Yes, the question, “Where can I wear this?” “On very special occasions.”…

Italy's Film Star Andrei Claude in Uvenio Collezioni!

The Italian Movie Star who flew into New York to work on a film production was off for the day and I was lucky to keep in touch with himhim to appear in my collection of the Dark Shadows Collection, Andrei Claude. James Weber as usual the fantastic photographer done the amazing shoot outside when New York was getting dark and the storm was arriving in the late afternoon in Chelsea. Makeup/Hair artist Janice Mitchum done an amazing job giving Andrei Claude a quiet gothic look with his long flowy black hair.
0n the rooftop of the studio at James Weber's place, Andrei fitted into my designs perfect with my simply classic black rayon silk shirt with black fitted vinyl pants with natural real clack/white cow skin corset. I was inspired my a Pirate of the Carribean look, a Pirate feeling into a modern day and Andrei looked perfect!  
After the outdoor shoot, it was pouring rain in Chelsea, so the next shoot was done inside. Andrei went to the next look in my Lounge collection of Dark Shadows inspiring the Pirate looks of skulls and cross briefs.
 In fleece robe, with matching briefs and blue cotton rayon robe , with his looks and body of Adonis to match, he was the perfect Actor/Model to be seen in my Dark Shadows Lounge Collection. The designs sold quickly to the independence film of Prime Suspects in New York. The Costume designer of the film emailed me a few days later and the Dark Shadows collection was used in the film. Andrei Claude continued to shine in his acting career in New York, Canada
, London and Italy! Waiting for him to come back since he would be fabulous for more new designs.  

Becoming Bold & Beautiful

Becoming Bold & Beautiful

25 Years of Making the World's Most Watched  Drama!
It's a MUST HAVE Book!
I gotten the book as a gift from my mother who knew that the show itself is important since I became a big fan of the show since it premiered in 1987. I freelanced with the show in 2000, and the show itself is the most watches show in the world, glamour, fashion and very old hollywood, Joan Crawford would kill to be on that show! Bette Davies too! Jean Harlow! Its the most beautiful setting with heavy weight drama!
The CBS soap The Bold & the Beautiful is celebrating its 25th year on the air, an especially impressive achievement given the tenuous standing of even the most beloved soap operas in the daytime lineup. Vanity Fair Italia ran a big feature on the show and commissioned Art Streiber to shoot the cast, images that were used both in print and in an online slideshow. Here’s a look…

  The Bold and the Beautiful is the world's most watched daily dramatic serial, seen by a daily viewing audience of over 35 million people in more than 100 countries worldwide. Take a rare and revealing look at what happens outside the camera frame as the cast and crew work to create episodes of the series, in studio in Los Angeles; stage 31 of CBS Television City, its home for 25 years; and in such beautiful locations as Paradise Cove in Malibu, California; Cabo San Lucas, Mexico' and Aspen, Colorado.

See how Stage 31 is transformed from an empty dark stage into a stunning family Christmas dinner at the Forrester's sumptuous residence in Beverly Hills. Or how the crew shot on the hottest day of the year in downtown Los Angeles on Skid Row. From special fall holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Halloween, to episodes that shock the senses, such as Hope's graduation party, a modern-day take on a masquerade ball. See images of CGI used to create Brooke and Thomas's berry-induced hallucination on the desert island in the South Pacific.
  Travel back in time to the inception of the series in 1987 and the early years, including the original press kit and early black and white photos. See how the series creators, the Bell family, mirror the fictional Forrester family. With a special section celebrating Darlene Conley (as knock-off queen "Sally Spectra") and never-before-published photos of how it all began, fans of the series will live through the early days of the series again.

For 25 years, The Bold and the Beautiful has delighted and fascinated audiences all over the world. Now the spirit of the series, past and present, has been captured in more than 200 photographs of the cast and crew by some of Hollywood's best photographers and complied into one work.

 Andrei also have appeared in over a hundred Romance cover novels, he was considered as the Fabio of the new generation. With his beautiful physique, Italian looks and dark mane, he came to New York to appear in action films. I was certainly lucky to asked him to model in my lounge wear design.    
Andrei Claude, born in 1979, on an island which is just off the coast of Italy in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, is an Italian model and actor who began modeling professionally in 2001 and was primarily based in California and returned to Italy.     In 2005, Claude's manager introduced him to the fascinating world of romance novels and in his first attempt was crowned "Mr. Romance" that same year. He was the youngest and only European to ever take the title.
Claude's versatility while shooting book covers was brought to the attention of film makers and within less than a year in the industry Andrei was already being cast in various independent films and shorts, mostly centered in New York.
Still active in the romance novel industry Andrei launched a page dedicated to just that and has also recently began his very own personal blog where hundreds of romance novel readers, authors and other people log on each week to read his new post. And appearing in movies after movies in New York, Canada, Italy and England! 
 I was very fortunate to have Andrei Claude in my design in Uvenio Lounge Collezioni. His "Tarzan" looks of Italian Stallion was perfect with the collection. A very classic gentleman with a body to match, I had himfor an all day shoot at James Weber's studio in Chelsea. Some outdoors shot on a dark cloudy afternoon and some indoor shoots after the pouring rain came to town.
