Press Release: Videofashion Chooses Artificial Intelligence Platform, GrayMeta, to Unlock the Value of Decades of Fashion Video

Robbie Lemieux

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., March 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GrayMeta, the leading provider of professional media players and metadata solutions for content owners, today announced that they have been chosen by Videofashion, who launched the genre of fashion video in 1976, to help optimize their 22,000-hour library of content. The GrayMeta Platform is an automatic metadata creation solution which builds workflow efficiencies throughout media workflows. Spanning five decades the Videofashion assets are automatically tagged using artificial intelligence and machine learning – enabling faster and more efficient monetization of video.

Called the “world’s first video magazine” by Time Magazine, Videofashion News was founded by Nicolas H. Charney, Ph.D., along with co-founders, Marlene McGinnis Cardin and Anne V. Adami, in November 1976. They would go on to start the Videofashion Daily News Service, supplying all media markets with short-form fashion news and topical segments through a constantly-updated mRSS feed. Today, Videofashion shoots and edits all of their new content – in 4K – with the mission to share their love for the art of fashion with audiences worldwide on all media platforms – by producing in-depth, intelligent, and entertaining fashion, beauty, and lifestyle programming.

By licensing programs, segments and footage that cover all aspects of fashion – Videofashion will leverage the GrayMeta Platform to enable their audience to search and license their content, especially previously unseen content. Using best-of-breed artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning services, the platform will automatically create temporal metadata – and incorporate the technical and temporal metadata harvested by the platform into their library. Worldwide customers will be able to quickly search by year, designer, city, trends, show, clothing, celebrities, models, and quotes. This new ability to quickly locate specific assets within the most extensive, privately-owned fashion library in the world will allow Videofashion to monetize their content faster than ever before.

Below, enjoy a rapid recap of some of our favorite collections from the S/S 18 season in Videofashion's hometown - head over to our Spring/Summer 2018 coverage page to watch the complete runways, plus designer interviews, and behind-the-scenes beauty scoops, and stay tuned for Autumn/Winter 18-19 show coverage starting in February!   






A look back at Phoebe Philo's first runway for Céline

Emily Lloyd

After much speculation, it was announced today that designer Phoebe Philo is indeed parting ways with Céline.

In 2006, after five years at the helm of Chloé, Philo stepped away from designing in order to spend more time with her growing family. In 2008, Philo returned to the industry when she was hired to take the creative reigns at Céline. She has spent the past decade creating often minimalist, often menswear-inspired, and always #coveted designs, quietly gaining fashion fans from Kanye West (he name dropped Philo in "Dark Fantasy" - NO BIG DEAL) to Joan Didion. (VERY. BIG. DEAL.)

As we look forward to seeing what she does next, here's a look back at Philo's very first Céline runway from the Videofashion Vault - Spring/Summer 2010, which debuted in Paris in the fall of 2009. Don't miss the adorable interview with Philo's [rightfully very proud] parents! 

As designer Phoebe Philo announces her departure from Celine - after nearly a decade as creative director - we look back at her very first runway for the house, in September 2009.

David Koma exits MUGLER - a look back

Emily Lloyd

The latest news in designer musical chairs comes from Paris, where it was announced this week that MUGLER artistic director, David Koma, will be leaving his role at the storied French house after four years holding the design reigns. Koma's namesake brand - likewise a favorite on the red carpet - will continue to show at London Fashion Week, and we look forward to seeing what's to come from the Georgian-born, UK-based designer.

For a little history lesson in all things MUGLER - and to see the latest runways from David Koma - check out our videos below!

#FBF with VS Fashion Show's Ming Xi

Emily Lloyd

Controversy arose this week when Victoria's Secret chose to include five-time VS model Ming Xi's now infamous runway fall in their nationally televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Instead of editing the #oops moment out of the pre-recorded (and widely known to be highly edited) primetime TV special, Tuesday night's viewers witnessed the cringe-worthy tumble in high-definition. OUCH.

While we mere mortals can only aspire to look as beautiful as Xi did while falling - let alone get back up on those 5-inch Brian Atwood heels and keep walking! - we couldn't help but feel empathy for the VS Fashion show veteran; after all, she took the fall in front of her hometown crowd. We also couldn't help but remember the below moment from the Videofashion Vault: during our 2011 interview with Xi backstage at NYFW, the Shanghai-born beauty admitted her biggest model mishap to date had been a catwalk fall at Paris Fashion Week. "I feel so sorry for that," said the then 21 year-old. 

Xi, please DO. NOT. Apologize. And a shout-out to Victoria's Secret: this model has definitely earned her wings! 

Check out the full interview with Ming Xi below!

Remembering Azzedine Alaïa

Robbie Lemieux

Legendary fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa sadly passed away this weekend in Paris at the age of 77.

The industry icon was known for his understanding of the female form, his mastery of the craft, and his uncompromising vision. Alaïa's impressive list of famous clients included everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga, the latter of whom counted the designer as a friend, and paid tribute to Alaïa by wearing his designs to last night's American Music Awards. 

We remember the designer with a flashback from the Videofashion Library: Azzedina Alaïa in Paris, 1985 with actress and singer, Grace Jones. Watch the full segment below ...

Met Gala 2018 to be a religious fashion experience

Robbie Lemieux

This week, the Metropolitan Museum of Art revealed the theme for 2018's Costume Institute exhibition: "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." The exhibit will examine the relationship between fashion and masterpieces of religious art, and will include designs from Balenciaga, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and many more. The comprehensive exhibit won't just be contained within the Anna Wintour Costume Center, but will expand into the Met's Medieval galleries and take the fashion flock uptown to the Met's storied Cloisters location! 

As a recurrent reference for designers - and an inspiration for artists since the beginning of time - the exhibit is bound to be provocative and ... (forgive the pun) enlightening. The red carpet on May 7 should likewise be a religious fashion experience. We can't wait to see how 2018's co-hosts Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace interpret the theme! 

As we gear up for next spring's big event, here's a look back at 2017's Met Gala, which celebrated Rei Kawakubo of Comme Des Garçons ...
