Shining a bright light on the beauty of philanthropy… in a fashionable way of course!

NOVELMODELS Social Focus this week is on FASHION one Foundation.
FASHION one Foundation teams up with local government units in the Philippines to give “LIGHT” to as many communities as possible… How? Well, beginning in Puerto Princessa, Palawan, they have provided the city and its mountain region with solar lamps to “Light a Million Homes in the Philippines.”
Watch as model/actress Monica Rofler distributes Solar Lamps to the residents.Palawan is quite remote, with provinces with basically no electricity - so as it was mentioned, there were many dangers of using mostly candles in the place of electricity. Watching FASHION one paying attention to the beautiful families of Palawan, giving away nearly 1000 solar lamps… and to extend their initiative even further, is inspiring to say the least. For those involved, I’m sure it was an entirely fulfilling experience!

Interview by Adrenus Craton and Victor Savkin

Adrenus: You have just released your very first album in English entitled, “Vladivostok”. Describe to us your newest single from that album. What is “Love Contraband”?

ILYA: These days Russia is usually associated with vodka, spies or oil fortunes …not even ballet anymore. I guess a Russian rock band is still not a very legit term for most westerners… I have a really simple message here - we love to write and perform good songs and would love to share them with as many people as possible.

Victor: Your songs sound like a romantic declaration to the world… can you tell us from where do you draw this romanticism?

ILYA: I hate to hate anything. I would love to be able to love every single thing on the planet and beyond. I know it’s not easy. I know it is almost impossible but I am still trying to be “the Poet and not a Revolutionary”. I came from a little town on the sea, which happened to be a major Russian navy base on the Pacific. I never wanted to jump on the Trans Siberian train. I was more curious about what was behind the ocean’s horizon.

Adrenus: Why and when did you decide to release this particular album in English?… Read More Film by Giovanni Fumu at theSponk StudiosProduction by Adrenus Craton
