Instagram!

Instagram is such an awesome social media platform. I’m obsessively using it myself. Those late nights when you can’t get to sleep and just trawling through endless Instagram pics. My love for photography and all things visually creative make this one of the most used apps on my iPhone. I particularly love the scenic landscape or location photos, insider shots of celebrities lives, and also following my favourite dog Marutaro: http://instagram.com/marutaro/

For this reason we use it quite frequently for our label VIPARO. We’re super active on Instagram, so follow us kids: @viparo

We’ll follow and tag you back :) You can also view our online Instagram page here: http://instagram.com/viparo

The VIPARO Instagram page is a compilation of behind the scenes photos on what goes on at the VIPARO offices or any of our events such as photo shoots, meetings with our designers and more. We also love to post people wearing our clothing and anything that the team get up to during their off-time.

We’ve reached over 500 followers so thank you to all of our awesome fans.

How do you use Instagram in your business?

Heritage Building @ Rockdale

Last weekend we went to visit a shop/warehouse that stocked reclaimed wood, antiques and reclaimed furniture as we are undergoing production of a temporary pop up store in Westfield. The warehouse was tucked away behind another building which made it difficult to find, nonetheless, if you find the red and white sign you should be fine. Walking in we were welcomed by two men and felt like were stepping back in time.  He said that upstairs were all the good stuff and so when we proceeded upstairs I was snap happy on my iphone.

Viparo Meeting Area Renovation : Stage 1

As our brand continues a steady transition into a fully fledged fashion label, we decided that our work environment should also see a distinct change to go with it. Our office meeting area (as seen above) saw the first of the renovation process, being that it is where the root of our ideas and the very foundation of our business is realized. More updates to come!

Lookbook

As VIPARO’s Autumn/Winter 12′ photoshoot is just around the corner, the team is working hard to conceptualize and refine this long awaited project that we are so excited to share with everyone. Before the photoshoot can begin, a strenuous process of planning in all spectrums of the project must be completed. Things such as the location, a script, time, the models and the right kind of equipment all factor into the quality of the end result, and the efficiency on the actual day of the shoot. Choosing the right models, using the correct lens and having the right camera settings along with correct lighting are all crucial elements in conveying the desired vibe and mindset of the brand. As we prepare to finalise the storyboard, we take a look at some of our favourite labels and shots from their lookbooks to get an idea of the benchmark we will be aiming for.

How To Make It In America


‘How To Make It In America’ was a comedy-drama that ran for 2 seasons, which followed the lives of two friends, Ben Epstein and Cam Calderon, hustling through the streets of New York City trying to make a name for themselves in the fashion scene and to live the ‘American Dream’.

Using their drive for prosperity and the uncanny ambition to work for no one but themselves, the pair set out to establish their own label, ‘Crisp NYC’. Going from one business idea to the other, the show succeeded in capturing the reality of the industry, what it takes to make it and the sacrifices that were needed to be made to stay loyal to their personal moralities.

The show delivered many of life’s struggles, challenges and principles that seems to one way or another, run down the same roads as VIPARO once did. ‘How To Make It In America’ reminded us to stick to what got us here in the first place : loyalty, teamwork, persistance and confidence in yourself. No matter what roadblock you come across there is always a way through it. You just have to work together to find it!

It’s too bad HBO decided to cut the journey short and axe the show after an amazing 2 seasons. We highly recommend this show for those who pursue the road to entrepreneurism.

In the words of Ben Epstein (Bryan Greenburg), “Never stop going for your dreams.”

VIPARO’s top albums of 2011

As another year passes, we look back and reminisce on the trials and tribulations of the last 12 months. For us here at VIPARO, we can say with certainty that 2011 was a successful year – as a brand we have grown immensely, with a fresh facelift to our logo and website, a greater amount of exposure to the brand and a continuous growth of followers. As a team, we are working hard towards reaching the goal we strive to realize : Establish a culture of confidence, continue to innovate and create, and of course..world domination :). VIPARO would like to thank those that continue to support our brand, and we look forward to sharing exciting things with everyone in 2012.

As we take one last look back, we’d like to close off the year with our pick of the top 10 albums of 2011. A fun work environment is not complete without a great selection of tunes that gets you through the grind, and with the abundance of talent-rich artists arising this year, there’s no loss of motivation for the day-to-day.

See you next year and be safe!

Floating across slick shifts and pared down separates, clams and conches, crabs and seahorses move from abyssal reality to soft, painterly print. With The Little Mermaid’s Arial an absolute inspiration, a palette of sweet, saccharine gelato pastels is key to the Under The Sea theme.
