Vanichi’s EIC. Joy Donnell, gets to the heart of how designer Miranda Konstantindou defines legacy through fashion with pieces that make the world sparkle. The designer was recently featured in Vanichi’s live fashion installation during 4 The Love Sessions presented by OPG at the Gibson Showroom. The installation and live editorial was styled by Ali Levine who also introduced Miranda to our editors. Miranda Konstantinidou became internationally known through her “KONPLOTT” jewelry brand.
The Yoruba people have an immense history visual as well as functional arts. The culture has produced everything from bronze sculpted Ife head statues to handwoven ceremonial fabrics. My latest obsessions are antique Yoruba Beaded Nobility Chairs. These intricate chairs were reserved for nobility and crafted to preserve folklore and tradition as well as the king’s legacy. The wooden frames are layered with canvas fabric that has been hand-beaded with vivid, and often colorful, designs.
I’ve found a new favorite thing. This Robin Teller Pueblo Pottery Design Travel Mug is art that can get up and go with you. The design is inspired by traditional Pueblo pottery and is crafted by Robin Teller from Isleta Pueblo. Robin is the daughter of Stella Teller, an accomplished pottery artist. Robin has been making her own pottery from roughly 1988 forward, making storytellers, nativity groupings, human and animal figures, polychrome jars and bowls.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
