We are interested in the following submissions // contributions :
Fashion Editorials (Prêt-à-porter, Resort) / Still Life (watches, accessories etc) / Grooming (Hair, Fragrance , Skin , Product Stills etc) / Fitness (& Lifestyle). As you may already be aware, LAB Gallerie publishes an accredited blog and 4 main online issues of the magazine. http://models.com/client/lab-a4 The blog & magazine is published under creative license in Australia and appears in 2 separate forms (Blog & Magazine).
Revolving around the European collections, with 4 main issues (Precollection/ SS & FW), our production costings are high as we produce the majority of all the content in-house along with support of contributing satellite teams in Milano & NYC and more-so a host of talented contributors, resulting in a high taste edit while remaining independent in outlook. As with any syndicated title, we have access to the production pool of our mother company, LAB Gallerie in Sydney, but we also encourage each contributor the rights to produce their own stories that are relevant to our market / that’s aspirational. For your interest to streamline and clarify the most appropriate ways to pitch stories to us kindly review below. We are always open to receiving fashion shoots that are ready, provided the following three points are respected:
These must be relevant for the Australasian market. AUS/NZ/CHN has flagship stores of all the major International brands, should you use a small brand that is only available in certain City, or a brand that is only available in a certain country, then the story may not be relevant to our readers. At least 90% of the credits need to be relevant to the AUS/NZ/CHN market and particularly fit into our Brand Mix, which means all the global brands and high fashion. Please be aware that repetitive usage of limited looks for a multiple page story will not be the right fit for us. Neither is shooting a singular brand not approved prior, outside of the featured designer / direction each issue. As we are a fashion based blog and magazine, varying looks are preferable, as is a tasteful edit of skin/swim/underwear shoots. Submission / Contributors are fully responsible and liable for the totality of the shoot; from production to samples.
We choose not to run stories that have been published before. If you have a story, that is perfect for us, but has been published. Kindly refrain from offering us any stories / images that were published to run. We also always request at least 3-6 months exclusivity (embargo) on the story being submitted in any country, should we not acquire the full rights. LAB Gallerie respects the rights to your creativity and will also ask the same for ours, with control over layouts to maintain a high level of consistency (including but not limited to re-sizing, cropping, flipping). Layout can be suggested, with the final decision at our discretion.
Please only send us fashion shoots that are relevant for the season. For example, if we are in preparations for the FW issue – then we are only looking for Spring/Summer 19-20 & Fall/Winter 19-20 stories – nothing else. Making sure that the fashion is relevant, the styling is tasteful and that it fits into the overall premium luxury market segment that all is likely to be seen worldwide/ and in our operative markets AUS/NZ/CHN.
