With made-to-measure suits and long beards is how the men of the Iraqi-Kurdish Men's Club MR. ERBIL* look into the camera. The image film was shot by Berlin-based production company PROFASHIONAL in the sanatorium on Lake Grabow, a former clinic just a few kilometers north of the Berlin city limits, neatly tucked away in the middle of the forest. The brief portrait of the Gentlemen's Club, founded in 2016, shows the men in all their facets. Dynamic camera movements and fast cuts put Mr. Erbil's classic elements and fabrics front and center.
But the three founders Ahmed, Omer and Goran stand for more than just a fashion brand – with over 90 thousand followers on Instagram, they are for women's rights in their home country. The image film shows the portrait of a new dandy culture paired with a sense of mission, for which MR. ERBIL stands. With their commitment, they want to bring fashion, elegance and style back to their hometown.
Mr. Erbil was shaped by the modern, cosmopolitan culture of the Kurdistan capital of the same name. The members of the Gentlemen's Club, which was founded in 2016, come from completely different parts of society. Originally inspired by "Pitti Uomo", a fashion event in Florence, bankers, students, mechanics and hairdressers show that the Iraqi region has more to offer than just war and doom. The club is meanwhile known around the world and presents a multifaceted portrait of the very handsome dandy culture in Iraq. instagram.com/mr.erbil

PROFASHIONAL teamed up with MARC CAIN to develop an exciting series: Mysterious Women by MARC CAIN. The video series presents exceptional and inspiring women for its new fragrance 'Mysteriously'.
It kicks off with Choreologist and Ballet Master Georgette Tsinguirides, who grants insights into her mindset towards dance and life. She guides mainly with film footage through her time with ballet god John Cranko from the 60s and 70s. Georgette Tsinguirides contributed significantly to making Cranko's work unforgettable even for future young talents.
"Giving interesting women who have achieved great things with their personality and outstanding achievements a platform is something very special for us.” says Rebecca Rupcic, Managing & Creative Director of PROFASHIONAL.
"The video was filmed in Stuttgart and at her home. We were greeted by a very hospitable and open-minded Georgette Tsinguirides. Created during the shoot was an emotional and touching short video in black & white look. The video accompanied by classical music grants insights into the world of the Choreologist and Ballet Master. Footage of her close collaboration with John Cranko in the '60s and' 70s are blended in. Georgette Tsinguirides radiates alone through her presence and does not seek the limelight. Her oeuvre is a milestone, and we hope "We have been able to depict her impressive life story in this short video," the team from MARC CAIN tells us.
