Fashion & Finance Friday!

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never underestimate the potential of your clicks & pics.  Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 ad campaign is gorgeous AND made up entirely of Instagram pictures submitted by everyday peeps.

Marc by Marc Jacobs announced a competition which was answered by followers from all over the world, and the winners represent Australia, South Korea, USA, England, Uruguay, etc.  The winners star in the campaign, and after watching this video, reversecommuter is kinda in love with a bunch of them!

CFDA ran a contest prior to the CFDA Awards in May and asked instagram followers to submit a pic wearing something from one of CFDA’s 400 members.  The winner scored a highly coveted ticket to the CFDA Awards Gala – fyi those tickets are valued at over $25,000 (click here for more info on that!).

ROWRRRRRRRR the Leopard King is hungry for foreign money.    Roberto Cavalli is looking for investors to inject 450 Million Euros into his company, but Investcorp pulled out after questioning the valuation of the company.

Poor clinging design kitty did not succeed in attracting the Middle Eastern moolah he was hoping for.  Investcorp, based in Bahrain, reversed it’s interest after recognizing that Cavalli is a brand that has yet to explode in the uber desired Chinese market.

 

reversecommuter would like to wish everyone a VERY Happy & Safe Fourth of July – put on some Red, White and Blue – and don’t forget to drop a little strawberry/blueberry combo into the bottom of the champs flute!
