See our photos made for the Marie Claire Magazine Photo Tender

To be honest applying for the tender was quite ad-hoc and sudden as most of the things are in my life. I was not really aware what style Marie Claire will “prefer” neither had much time as I was told about the tender only 2 weeks before the application period  was closed. Even made it a bit tougher when the first photographer quit and I was left there with an idea I liked but with a slight side note: It was a photo tender for photographers, where clearly I was only an optional model. Still I cared for this project as its Mamacittá 😃 and pushed it till the end. I kind of felt the topic of the tender pretty close to me and was also sure that something interesting has to be done for this occasion.

The theme of the tender was: The colorful existence of women.

It wasn’t that easy as I had 1,5 week left, needed THE PHOTOGRAPHER:-), the make up artist, preferably a stylist too. A studio and well yes  more time:-) Time I did not have! 
To be honest the hardest part was to find the time when everybody was able can get together, be on one specific location:-) and do the work. 

I was inspired by Sandro Miller’s Malkovich photo exhibition I have previously seen in Budapest. So the idea was clear. Show the colorful existence of women through different characters that are unconventional, or popular in world press photographed with one model → Me. 
I needed to keep reminding myself that the project is a photographer tender, and not a topic of a new blogpost of mine. And surprisingly or not I have taken it damn serious.
The approach of us towards the photographs was following my idea, so you will likely feel the touch of fashion on them. Well… Quite much of a fashion touch. The more I see the pictures the more I smile. We humans and our minds and our creativity is so unique and authentic. 

Let me show you what characters were in my mind, and how did we display them on the Marie Claire magazine photo tender:-)

Office Casual Outfit

Not long ago I had to travel to Oslo to a conference and I was quite sure that I was not going to bring the ordinary black skirt, white blouse, black jacket and comfy look-like low-heel shoes. 


I will never forget one of my previous exhibition I was participating in May 2017, in Frankfurt. The IMEX is the most important trade exhibition in Germany with 3500 exhibitors, from 150 countries, over 5200 decision makers, millions of meetings held in one place within 3 days. I remember my last day when my feet were sore, I felt like I was entering a beehive where all the faces were already in some way familiar, yet tired and less-welcoming than they were on the opening day, but all I knew I needed to have at least 10 more valuable meetings out of which maybe 1 was to be resultful. I was walking in my black jacket with my badge on my name: Edina Karina Deák, well shown the company I was representing, a white blouse, a black tight skirt and my shoes killing my feet in the last 2 days…
