FASHION L ORI D LIVINGSTON is a Professional Model, Public Speaker, SAG Actor, Author, and Human Sex Trafficking Activist. She lives in Los Angeles, California. Here Jamaal Lewis talks frankly to her. Q Lori, tell us about yourself. I am from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where my Mom and Brother raised me. I met my Dad, and Brother & Sister at age 18. I grew up in the toughest part of town on the South Side! It was vital to be a bit ‘tomboy- ish’, or rough around the edges to survive that environment. My Mother was robbed at knife point one night in our home, her attacker threatened to come and get us too if she didn’t comply... It wasn’t long afterward that my brother and I were sent to a board- ing school in Hershey, Pennsylvania, called Milton Hershey School. We never came back home to our mother. Q What was Milton Hershey School like? It was a perfect blend of students of all nationalities, cultures, and age groups. Each one of us was rescued from a dysfunctional background or home. I credit Milton Hershey School for who I am today. Milton Hershey taught me that there was so much more to life than where I, and so many of my fellow students, had come from. By my Senior Year half of the people from my hometown school were gone, they were dead, pregnant, or incarcerated. Milton Hershey gave me a future that no one in my immediate family could get!

FEATURE D’Jesus Trujillo Dejesus ‘The Walking Man’ Runway Model Coach is an extraordinary gifted legend in the modelling world and a great Shoe Designer his creations have the Wow Factor of magnificence. Text by Antonella A Commatteo, photos by Daniel MacSween Q Tell us about yourself. I was born and raised in Latin America. I grew up in Chiapas, Mexico and moved to Mexico City when I was 18 years old to pursue a career in acting. After graduating from Acting School, I came to the U.S. to explore possibili- ties here. After struggling to learn English and earn enough to support myself to chase my dreams, I was finally able to break into the Fashion Industry. Through patience, determination, perseverance and learning how to promote myself I have been able to find and achieve my dream as a Runway Coach, Image Coach and Personal Stylist. Q Tell us how you became involved in the Fashion Industry, and was it about the clothing, or directly related to the modelling side that interested you? I have always been fascinated by clothing and style. The construction, the fabric, the texture, movement and colour combinations make for an endless palette. Putting a garment on a model and watching it come to life is thrilling to see. Q You were an Executive Assistant to Sue Wong, a truly amazing Designer. What was it like working for such an iconic woman, and her brand? It was truly a life experience. She taught me her approach to styling from the conception of a garment to how best to present it most impressively by using the right model and movement. In addition, she also gave me an incredible insight on the business aspects of the industry. Marketing, dealing with people, and merchandising. 30 CVH1STCLASS MAGAZINE ISSUE26

FEATURE Q You are a very successful Runway Instructor/Model Coach. Will you describe what that entails? It has definitely been a journey, my job is to develop a person, whether they are a model or not, into a confident person in all aspects. I help them to see within themselves and to build on their talents, the way they move and feel in order to project a confident and bold image. For models, it is very important to ‘wear’ the garment. To become part of the flow of the garment and to sell it as they walk down the runway, or do a photo shoot. I help them to get in touch with that inner essence and to sell both themselves and the product they represent. Q Who inspires you today? My greatest inspiration is Jesus Christ. He was a simple man who walked a very difficult path during a tough period in history. He took on the challenges before him, sometimes with doubt, but always with courage and conviction. He did so without developing an ego and always treated everyone with love and compassion. Q We know that the shoes you design are now becoming much sought after. Where do you get your inspiration to create such masterpieces? I take my inspiration from everyday people, natural elements and life experiences. The designs and textiles of the indigenous people in Chiapas, the beautiful colours and textures of fabrics from around the world, and the designs of the past and present are all endless possibilities for new creations. Q Fashion is a very competitive Industry. What are some of the things it takes to succeed in it? Honesty is critical. Honesty to yourself and your team. Teamwork is essential to success. You need to utilize and recog- nize the talent of people you work with and give the respect deserved in order to earn respect for your own talents. It also requires a creative vision and the courage to present your ideas without the fear of judgement. Q What impact do you think fashion has on today’s culture? Fashion is a manifestation of many facets of culture. It comes from individual back- ground experiences and personal points of view. It has a massive impact on society, as it constantly evolves and morphs into new designs, trends and ideas that help to both form and to reflect our culture in that time and space. It helps to bring people together and contributes enormously to the vibrancy of life and society. ▶ ISSUE26 CVH1STCLASS MAGAZINE 31


FEATURE Q What do you feel you bring to the Industry that’s unique? My true self. I am able to be me, a unique human being and personality. I like to believe that I help to motivate and inspire others while not having to pretend to be someone that I am not. This industry allows personal expression, which frees me to be creative, outrageous, and compassionate and to work with others to create new and exciting concepts for everyone to enjoy. I bring respect for others; fun and enthusiasm, which helps to fuel creativity among those I encounter and have the privilege to work with. Q What are the plans for the future? Coaching. Not only Models, but also individuals seeking to develop their own personal image to help them be more confi- dent, successful and happy in life. Everyone has inner beauty that they can share to touch those they work, live or spend time with. I want to help people develop their confidence and inspire them to be who they are without fear of what others think of, or say about them.
