NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MADE, the downtown creative hub, has partnered with number one cosmetic brand Maybelline New York to act as the Official Makeup Partner of MADE Fashion Week, presented September 4th -10th at Milk Studios. Maybelline New York will provide creative direction, backstage artistry and its innovative range of products for more than 10 MADE designers, including Public School, Cushnie Et Ochs, Ostwald Helgason, Olivier Saillard, Kitsune, Jonathan Simkhai, Maria Ke Fisherman, Peter Som, Chris Gelinas, Zana Bayne, and Baja East.
The partners will also introduce the MADE for Maybelline Film Project, an innovative video incubator that will enhance the platform of MADE Fashion Week's support of emerging creative talent. The incubator enlists the vision of eight vanguard filmmakers who will use mixed-media techniques to create an experimental 30-second video inspired by the Maybelline New York-driven makeup trends found only at MADE Fashion Week.
"Supporting visionary talent and remarkable designers is central to MADE's mission and to our partnership with Maybelline New York," says Mazdack Rassi, Co-Founder of MADE and Creative Director of Milk Studios. "It's precisely forward-thinking companies like Maybelline that enable MADE to offer premier New York Fashion Week resources free of charge to designers, and it is absolutely thrilling that Maybelline is supporting filmmakers and video artists in addition to fashion creatives through initiatives such as the MADE for Maybelline Film Project."
Additionally, Maybelline New York will host a media lounge in the Penthouse at Milk Studios. The Maybelline New York media lounge will be open to editors, bloggers and influencers for three days and culminate in the exclusive MADE for Maybelline Film Project special event, which will be held on Wednesday, September 10th to close out the week.
During the MADE for Maybelline Film Project event, a panel of judges – comprised of Mazdack Rassi (Milk Studios & MADE Co-founder), David Greenberg (President of Maybelline New York-Garnier-essie), and Georgie Greville (LEGS Media) – will award the creator of the most dynamic and engaging 30-second video with a fiscal donation and opportunity to work on a larger film project at MADE Fashion Week in February 2015.
"Maybelline's involvement in fashion and commitment to creativity grow stronger with each season," said David Greenberg, President of Maybelline New York-Garnier-essie. "As the fashion landscape continues to evolve, we need to ebb and flow with it, finding new and interesting ways to support our trend platform and the artistic communities that contribute to it. Partnering with MADE Fashion Week allows us to tap into a new generation of talent through meaningful backstage collaborations and thought-provoking content projects. These efforts showcase the Maybelline New York brand in an exciting new light."

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
