photoblog image FENDI

FENDI

So I decided to post this Image up today for my dear family friend ...this is one of her favorite designers....and of course she came into this world today...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :d


New York People. . .Expensive St. . .5th Ave. Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome to a section a street that totally drains your pocket.....& of course if you walk further down to the left is The M.A.C Pro Store!

About  FENDI: Fendi is an Italian Fashion Designer brand founded in 1925, most famous for it's selection of shoes and furs.  Actually it began in 1918 when Adele Casagrande opened a leather and fur shop in Via del Plebiscito in central Rome. Adele married Edoardo Fendi, and decided to change the name of their business to FENDI and had 5 daughters. With it's ups and downs and struggles in business, today it has become a huge success.

Currently, this store you see right here is one of FENDI'S large store in 5th Ave.New York City. established in 1989, occupying 22,000 square feet. In facts, Louis Vuitton owns 51% of FENDI, which was sold to them by the Fendi Sisters. So in other words, Vuitton owns Fendi. Only one of the Fendi sisters runs 49% of the company.

Lovely shot!
Nacha Kama: M3Rci
Wow! Nacha, that interesting story of the high economic society of New York! A good urban capture with a treatment that embellishes much the image smile
The subtle rendering has highlighted the upmarket urban character of this street.

A fine street shot all on its own, but made even more interesting with the history and background of Fendi. Nice shooting.

I like the color conversion on this one. Mostly B&W, with just some color in the cab. Nice to restrain the cab from the realistic yellow of the NY cab.
