The Victoria and Albert Museum will open its first exhibition on African fashion this week, more than 170 years after its creation.

Featuring designers who have worked with names such as Beyoncé and architect David Adjaye, Africa Fashion aims to look across the continent’s fashion, exhibiting designs, photography and film from 25 of the 54 countries.

Christine Checinska, curator of African fashion and the African diaspora at the V&A, said the exhibit was overdue. “It is a moment of transition that marks the commitment we have to celebrate African creativity at all levels,” she said.

The V&A was founded in 1852 and its legacy and reputation is linked to British colonialism across Africa. Some of its most valuable items were acquired through colonialism, such as the Maqdala Treasures which entered the V&A collection after being taken during a British military campaign in Ethiopia in 1868. This exhibit could be considered a part of a larger movement to recognize these histories and to bring a more diverse range of voices into the institution.

The exhibition took more than two years to prepare. The team of curators consulted with external experts, a group of young people from the African diaspora and an intergenerational community panel. The designers were also involved in choosing the presentation of their work.

“We wanted to showcase the pan-African fashion scene – that’s really what connects the creators of the show,” Checinska said. “So whether it’s from Morocco to South Africa or from Ghana to the west, [we want] to try to strategically break these old colonial borders.

Located in the fashion galleries, Africa Fashion is divided into two parts. The bottom section covers historical outfits and images from the 1950s, while the floor is dedicated to contemporary designers and photography.

The first section is an introduction to the rich history of fashion overlooked by most British galleries until now. It includes moments such as Ghana’s then Prime Minister Kwame Nkrumah dressed in kente cloth to announce his country’s independence from British rule in 1957, and the popular studio portraits of photographers such as Rachidi Bissiriou, Sanlé Sory and Seydou Keïta, from the 1960s and 1970s.

Other cases explore the work of fashion designers – some of whom are household names across Africa, but little known outside the continent. Names of note include Alphadi, a Nigerian designer who used metalwork from his Tuareg heritage on glamorous dresses in the 1980s, and Shade Thomas-Fahm, a Nigerian women’s favorite designer for work wear in the 1980s. 1970.

In the upstairs gallery, designs from the modern era are surprisingly political – brands such as Rich Mnisi, Orange Culture and Sindiso Khumalo address feminism and LGBTQI+ rights in their collections.

“I don’t think it’s a new thing,” Checinska said, pointing to engravings commemorating independence in the historical section. “What if it doesn’t carry a message?” It is almost a modernization of this textile tradition.

Aesthetics that have their roots in African countries have long been subject to cultural appropriation, with European designers using them in their collections. Africa Fashion deliberately does not address this burning issue. “It’s amazing work and we don’t want people to miss it,” Checinska said. “We center African creativity and we hope people come in and are inspired, want to walk away and embrace and engage in a respectful way.”

For many, she is The Weeping Woman, the weeping woman whose anguish was depicted in a series of paintings by Pablo Picasso, of whom she was both mistress and muse.

In truth, Dora Maar, the model in the paintings, was an artist in her own right before she met the lover who would cast a shadow over her life and work.

Now, a collection of mostly unknown and never-before-seen photos by Maar that capture a landmark moment in European art and history – including shots of Picasso – and which would later inspire his own surrealist paintings will go on sale. in Paris on Monday.

Around 750 images, many personal and taken during his years with the Surrealists in Paris in the 1920s to late 1940s, are up for auction, including several by Picasso – including a reportage of his work on his masterpiece. anti-war work Guernica – as well as images of him at home, in his studio and relaxing with friends on the French Riviera. In one, the artist is seated in an armchair carved from the trunk of an olive tree. Another shows a shirtless Picasso under a parasol in Antibes in the mid-1930s.

It was Maar’s depressingly familiar fate as a female artist who will be remembered primarily as one of Picasso’s despised lovers.

Born in 1907 Henriette Théordora Markovitch, to a French mother who owned a fashion boutique and a Croatian architect father, Maar was a talented photographer and painter. She began her career photographing models then turned to advertising. His photos of street children in Paris echo those later made famous by Robert Doisneau and Marilyn Stafford.

In 1936 Maar, who then had his own photography studio, met Picasso in Paris – he was nearly three decades her senior – and became his lover and muse. At the time, the Spanish-born artist had a long-standing relationship with Marie-Thérèse Walter, the mother of his daughter Maya, and reportedly enjoyed pitting the two women against each other, staying with Walter throughout his affair. with Marar.

For the next nine years, Maar created her own images, but also chronicled her lover’s life and work, capturing his progress on Guernica in 1937 and even painting a small part of the canvas. The auction also includes photographs of Picasso sculptures, including The Woman in the Vase and Woman’s Head, presented at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1937.

Maar’s photos of the Surrealist group centered on pre-war Paris, which included photographers Man Ray and Jean Cocteau for whom she also posed, André Breton, Jacqueline Lamba, Alberto Giacometti, Méret Oppenheim, Paul Éluard and Lee Miller , have featured in books and exhibitions. Some of the images sold will look familiar to you, as they come from the same photo shoots as the published images, but auction house Artcurial says the photographs sold in 400 lots – with the original negative, contact sheet and a modern print – are mostly unreleased and unreleased. The collection also includes self-portraits, nudes including those of Lamba, who was married to Breton, and other images that Maar would later use in his paintings.

As well as capturing a chapter in the history of 20th century art, the grainy photographs of disabled, blind, injured, poor and dispossessed people in Spanish and British cities also document the economic crisis that swept across Europe. pre-war period in the 1930s.

After the war, Maar – who separated from Picasso in 1945 when he left her for artist Françoise Gilot – suffered a brief depression and reportedly underwent electroconvulsive therapy. Although she continued to paint until her death in 1997 at the age of 89, her life was so overshadowed by hers that it took the French newspaper The world 10 days to mark his passing.

“While Dora Maar spent nine years of her life alongside Picasso, she was also superbly successful in creating her own independent and personal work, using a medium that Picasso never embraced: photography. As such, Dora Maar can be considered one of the most original photographers of her time, a true pioneer of the mid-20th century,” said Bruno Jaubert, director of the impressionist and modern art department at Artcurial. Observer.

“Dora Maar had no children, so these negatives have been in the archives of her estate since her death. They were all taken with the Rolleiflex she used and cover 20 years of work. They are of a unusual character and through them we see a side of Dora Maar the artist and photographer, which we do not know.

Although Picasso painted Maar several times, she was unimpressed with his depictions of her. “All [his] my portraits are lies. Not one is Dora Maar,” she once said.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s authority is “running out”, a former Tory MP has said, following the ruling party’s loss of two by-elections.

“[Johnson’s] authority is very significantly reduced,” Gavin Barwell told Sky News on Friday. “The Conservative Party looked to Boris Johnson, because they saw him as an election winner, there is not…a deep love or affection for him among Tory MPs.

“What we see is a process of [Johnson’s] authority is running out,” he said.

In Tiverton and Honiton in Devon, Liberal Democrat Richard Foord overturned a Conservative majority of 24,239 votes and won local elections by 6,144 votes. The Conservatives have owned Tiverton and Honiton since its inception in 1997.

Elsewhere, Labor regained Wakefield after Simon Lightwood beat Tory rival Nadeem Ahmed by 4,925 votes.

“If the Conservative Party continues as it is. . . it’s sleepwalking to defeat next time [general] elections,” said Lord Barwell. “If the Conservative Party changes leaders and changes direction. . . if he does those two things, he could still win.

“Tiverton’s result is abysmal,” he added. “It’s one of the safest conservative seats in the country.”

Lord Barwell said Tiverton was a “strongly pro-leaving constituency” – a reference to the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

“So for the Liberal Democrats to win there — and win comfortably — that means there’s a whole swath of seats in the south of the country that are vulnerable,” he added.

Oliver Dowden was due to appear on Sky, but resigned as party chairman early on Friday.

By Tanya Banon

New Delhi, Jun 19 (SocialNews.XYZ) One of the most trusted watch brands over generations, the Timex Group creates, manufactures and sells innovative timepieces around the world. Based in Middlebury, Connecticut, it has multiple operating units and more than 3,000 employees worldwide. Group companies manufacture watches under several well-known brands, including Timex, Nautica, Guess, GC, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Versus, Ted Baker, Missoni and Furla.


In India, Deepak Chhabra is the new Managing Director of Timex Group India. With over two decades of diverse and insightful leadership experience in retail, brand management, strategic business planning, management, sales and merchandising, Deepak will lead business transformation and the group’s strategic growth strategy in India. He will be responsible for developing strategies and driving initiatives that deliver superior brand and customer experience through innovative business planning solutions.

Being a highly driven and driven leader who believes in pushing beyond his comfort zone and taking risks, he is a firm believer in accepting failure as much as celebrating success. IANSlife speaks with Chhabra to gain key insights on plans to expand the brand’s marketing growth and business module in the retail and business sector.

Read excerpts:

Is Timex a more ambitious or generational brand?

Deepak: Timex is a global brand, an American multinational, but our roots are so strong in India that many think we’re a local brand here and that’s a success in itself. So, we really work on how people perceive us, what happens when you have a legacy of more than 365 years? You have to constantly stay relevant to consumers while maintaining your legacy. We have to move with the times, so to speak, and somewhere we have to make sure that we continue to meet contemporary needs.

Our heritage gives us the advantage of being both ambitious and generational, we are close to our consumers, but we must continue to focus on how they can interact with us, how they can locate us, where can we are available to them and how can we serve them. We have made conscious efforts to ensure that we are where the consumer needs us, whether it is design, accessibility or contemporary watch trends. We don’t have to choose between being ambitious or generational, we can be both at the same time, that’s what we are.

When it comes to watches, there’s a lot of competition from brands that aren’t necessarily watch brands, but manage to capture a large chunk of the market. How does Timex plan to stay ahead?

Deepak: There is a set of consumers who are watch enthusiasts, who really want to have a watch from only watch manufacturers, mostly Swiss brands and Timex caters to those buyers. But today, a watch is not necessarily just a functional product, it’s fashion and trends, it’s a fashion accessory and therefore there will always be a segment of buyers who will turn to trends and fashion brands to buy watches.

There are benefits to both, as many fashion brands take care of this ambitious value and fashion quotient. At Timex Group, we manufacture watches under and for several well-known brands, including Nautica, Guess, GC, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Versus, Ted Baker, Missoni and Furla, which cater to this segment. 80% of the business is actually fashion lines designed in our system. Thus, as a watch manufacturer with great expertise for a long time, we ensure that in our style, our design and in our communication, we convey all the necessary fashion elements.

We split our business into two parts, one is licensed brands, then Timex, and we have a few sub-brands, so these three brands together ensure that we stay fashionable and functional.

Are physical commercial spaces worth investing in or not?

Deepak: As I said, we have to be where the consumer is, today a brand’s presence has to be multi-channel, and we are committed to being present on all channels, retail and e- trade to be close to our consumer. There is a set of consumers who want to shop online, especially the category of young consumers, on the other hand, there are customers who want to touch and feel, and see what it looks like on your wrist, s matches your personality and matches what you wear. Brick and mortar is therefore very relevant, as is the online space. India is a huge country so we cannot be physically present everywhere, but we can make sure that we can deliver online to all pin codes in the country.

GenZ and Millennials are a big part of the market, do you have a brand ambassador that appeals to this segment?

Deepak: Today, influencers who engage with a dedicated following help brands reach a target audience much more emotionally than celebrities with millions of followers and no engagement. We have seen that the ROI of social media influencer marketing is much more emotional than that of generic brand ambassadors. Not every celebrity can target the audience you’re trying to reach. Today, I don’t think a single Brand Ambassador endorsing all the brands in our brand portfolio makes sense.

This could suggest that there may be more demand than can be efficiently supplied in its main markets, or perhaps simply indicate pent-up demand related to the pandemic.

The outlook is tied to the expansion of advanced science industries across the economy. Oxford technologies are used in the development of advanced materials, quantum computing and semiconductors, to name a few. Indeed, these segments of the business recorded revenue growth rates of between 21.4% and 36.2% over the period, although regional performance levels were skewed due to the staggered easing of restrictions. of Covid-19. We’ll likely get an even clearer picture of segmental performance once we can see a trading period that hasn’t been affected by erratic shipment phasing.

The growing imperative for R&D within what is sometimes called the “knowledge economy” underpins the group’s investment case. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean it’s been immune to supply chain disruptions, as evidenced by a slight drop in organic revenue in its European markets due to lower processing tool shipments. semiconductors.

In contrast, Asia – the Group’s largest region by revenue – recorded revenue growth of 25.6% on an organic basis at constant exchange rates, as demand continued to grow for electron microscope analyzers, semiconductor processing tools and cryogenic systems from Oxford. China accounts for 55% of the region’s sales, so the restrictions (post-period end) that were put in place by Beijing in response to the Omicron variant could potentially impact H1 trade. the year 2023.

Since a significant portion of sales is denominated in foreign currencies, the group regularly uses hedging. Statutory earnings contracted year-on-year, primarily due to changes in the mark-to-market valuation of financial derivatives. However, once you exclude currency effects, the adjusted operating margin increased by 20 basis points to 18%.

Oxford enhanced its optical imaging capabilities during the period with the acquisition of Wissenschaftliche Instrumente und Technologie. And it has also been the subject of M&A speculation after tech rival Spectris launched a possible 3,100 pa share tender offer, later withdrawn due to the situation in Ukraine. However, the interest should provide further support for the valuation of the stock, whose growth price is 24 times Peel Hunt’s adjusted earnings forecast.

BUY: Bloomsbury Publishing (BMY)

UK publisher celebrates ‘rediscovered habit’ of reading in wake of pandemic, writes Jemma Slingo.

During the first confinement, many people rediscovered the taste for reading. As a result, Bloomsbury Publishing’s sales rose sharply and the group repeatedly exceeded market expectations. However, as Covid restrictions were lifted, some feared that reading would once again go out of style.

These concerns have so far proven to be unfounded. Bloomsbury sales were up 24% year-on-year, while adjusted pre-tax profit jumped 40% to £26.7m. Growth was fairly consistent across all divisions: Adult earnings rose 26% to £55.2m and Children’s earnings rose 25% to £93m. (Surprisingly, nearly 25 years after publication, Harry Potter sales are still growing 5% each year.)

Although still smaller than the consumer division, Bloomsbury’s non-consumer arm – which consists of academic and professional resources and special interest products – is also growing, with adjusted pre-tax profit on the rise. 68% to £9.1m. This is encouraging as non-consumer publishing tends to have higher and more predictable margins, is less reliant on retailers, and paves the way for more digital opportunities. As such, it is a key part of Bloomsbury’s growth strategy.

The publisher’s specific digital resources division is particularly efficient. When it was established in May 2016, management predicted it would generate £15m in sales by February 2022. It has in fact exceeded that target, generating sales of £18.6m and a profit of £6.8 million.

Bloomsbury has long been defined by its Harry Potter hit. However – while the literary splurges remain very large – the publisher has significantly diversified its revenue sources and future growth appears less dependent on consumer trends and shares are holding at a forward price-earnings ratio of 18 for 2022.

WAIT: Iomart (IOM)

The cloud computing group complained of a lack of large IT projects, writes Jemma Slingo.

In April, analysts at Peel Hunt described Iomart as a “cheap tech company waiting to grow.” Since the start of the pandemic, however, growth has not been there.

In the year to March 31, revenue fell 8% to £103m, and adjusted profit before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda) fell by the same percentage to £38m. sterling. Management said this reflected lower one-time equipment and consulting sales, caused in part by the conclusion of a large consulting project.

However, that’s not quite the full story: recurring revenue also fell by £4.2m, split evenly between Iomart’s core cloud managed services division and its “self-managed infrastructure” branch. Customer renewals fell in the first half, but have since returned to normal levels.

Iomart is not immune to macroeconomic pressures. Management noted a lack of large-scale IT projects and cited inflationary pressures, supply chain challenges and geopolitical uncertainties. However, he said “the requirement for organizations to be supported with their hybrid cloud challenges will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.”

Iomart has only recently repositioned its offering in the growing “hybrid cloud” market, which allows customers to store information in a variety of different locations and easily access it. However, the security market is also a cornerstone of its growth plan and it recently partnered with a cybersecurity specialist. Management also hopes that the appointment of a new commercial director will help improve the group’s sales pipeline.

The projections aren’t great, though. Analysts expect sales to remain below 2020 levels in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023, while profit margins have been shrinking for several years.

Cash conversion remains high at 100%, however, and the company has paid off a significant portion of its debt.
