Don’t Be Perfect! Saint Tropez

I recently collaborated with Saint Tropez, a new store in Zouk, on a look book with my very own photographer friend @kareem_nakkash and the magnificent makeup artist Mohamad Kobrosly @mdk.mua (scroll down)

Throughout this blog post, you will read some of their empowering taglines – reflecting a culture that promotes a less perfect – more fun/ sparkling life.

Saint Tropez is a member of the retail group holding United Colors Of Benetton and Sisley in Lebanon, being so I directly could predict it is a “credible” brand of good quality. I realized my cognition was right when I checked their collection – perfectly designed for strong, independent, multitasking, and outgoing women, who don’t need a mini jupe to turn heads. Even though all the pieces are noticeably comfortable, the cuts are also very feminine.

Saint Tropez is an international brand. The style and expression is feminine, sensual yet always “decent”. The sensual identity builds on and gives direction to the feminine core. Price position is affordable, medium-low price level, and this element is linked to the core “value for money”.

As mentioned on their website, Saint Tropez designs are for women, who want to feel fashionable every day. “We create the season’s must haves, the everyday hero and the perfect party look – accessible fashion for all occasions.”

My favorite pieces are the bohemian red dress, the green and leopard sweater, the black & white outfit, and the white lace shirt.

Go ahead and check out their Trendy/ Comfortable, Strong/ Feminine collection!

“7kita 3ala facebook w maraddit” is not a business approach

So is “Ba3atella DM on instagram w ma raddit”
Being A digital consultant, I find it often that people are interested in working with bloggers, digital influencers, or talents. Sometimes directors would find an actress so fitting for a specific role, that they send her a private message.

 

I also hear this often “I sent her a message on instagram and on facebook, she did not reply, she is probably sheyfeh hala”, while on the other hand there are numerous numbers of bloggers waiting for sponsors, for content, and there are so many talented actresses and models feeling unappreciated.

 

What should you do?
– Every blogger/ actress has contact information on their socials: Send them an email or call their personal numbers. Don’t just wait for a message on Facebook. That is you being unprofessional, not them being cocky.

 

– When not getting a reply, send a reminder after 3 days, then another one after 2 weeks.

 

– (If you still did not get a reply and you are still after this specific person) Figure out a medium. Think of a person who would know her personal number or email and contact that person.

– Contact Talent Agents and Agencies for assistance (they usually have contact information of talents)

Tips:

  • The new instagram links you directly to a person’s contact
  • Many professionals have their numbers put on LinkedIn
  • Bloggers that do not have a contact number on their socials probably do not want to be contacted (so if you are a blogger and aiming for sponsors and proposals, put it there!)
  • When signing deals and talking MONEY with the assistance of a talent agent or medium, ask for a meeting for the 3 of you together. Chances are big that some projects do not go though because the “person in the middle” wants a bigger commission or is not transmitting the right info about a specific activity

 

While mostly all businesses exist on facebook and instagram, both are still NOT BUSINESS platforms. You want to raise a complaint, send an inquiry, or ask for a favor SEND AN EMAIL, CALL THE NUMBER, and ASK FOR A F2F MEETING.

Goodluck!
Much Love!
