Brands pay her. An agent negotiates fees Doinas favourite book, she tells me, is Platos Republic . She reads newspapers in English the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times but fiction in Russian. (A lot of things in life, you can express them better in Russian.) Her life plan is first to build a brand along the lines of Chiara Ferragni , aka The Blonde Salad , the 29-year-old Italian influencer who has built a personal brand worth an estimated 10m, and then to become the first female president of Moldova. I have plenty of time, she says. I will do this first, and then, when I ข่าวสด เดลินิวส์ am 40, perhaps I will go into politics. I am 43. What have I been doing with all my time? Outside the show, Doina greets the streetstyle photographers with kisses before obligingly recrossing the road so they can get a better shot of her arriving. And then crossing the road again, so they can get the shot again. And again, and again.

Customer Support Luxury Emergency? Now You Can Get Gucci Delivered in 90 Minutes by Farfetch launches on-line, in-store tech for luxury brands Smart display wracks, mirrors and holographic shoes featured Thanks to a partnership with London-based fashion technology company Farfetch , you can soon get Gucci clothing and accessories whisked to your door within 90 minutes. Farfetch announced the partnership Wednesday, as the company showcases what its calling "The Store of the Future" -- software and devices that aim to help luxury brands gather more information on customers in stores and online. Customers will be able to shop for select items of Kering -owned Gucci goods via Farfetchs app and website, and have those orders fulfilled within 90 minutes from Gucci stores in London, New York, Dubai, Los Angeles, Madrid, Miami, Milan, Paris, Sao Paulo and Tokyo. The Gucci collaboration with Farfetch comes as competition heats up in online luxury. In a call with investors Tuesday, LVMHs chief financial officer Jean-Jacques Guiony said the worlds largest luxury group would be the latest to ramp up multi-brand e-commerce, considering a new site for its luxury department store Le Bon Marche. "Retailers need a way to collect information about their customers while they are browsing in-store, just as they collect data from online searches," Jose Neves, Farfetchs founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement. Founded in 2008 as an e-commerce platform for luxury boutiques, Farfetch has increasingly positioned itself as a technology provider working directly with high-end brands. In March, it launched the e-commerce portal for high-end shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, pushing into a space where competitor Yoox Net-A-Porter Group SpA has been a leader, operating white-label websites for brands including Armani . Among the in-store technologies Farfetch is showcasing is a scanner that will enable customers to "log-in" with a smartphone when they enter a store, allowing a sales assistant to view the customers profile, including what items they may have bought previously or saved to a wish list in the brands online store.

Football is hugely important in Brazil, and all of its famous favelas have makeshift pitches full of children playing the beautiful game. For most, the match ends when the Sun goes down, but in the Morro da Mineira favela, in Rio de Janeiro, play can continue long into the night, thanks to lights powered by the players themselves. The six LED floodlights surrounding the field are powered by 200 kinetic tiles buried under the Astroturf, which capture the energy generated by the players' footsteps. As players put weight on the tiles beneath the pitch, it causes electric-magnetic induction generators to kick in and generate electricity.
