Indashio’s Brad Batory wins Glam God

Filed by Jack Yan/October 24, 2008/1.20

I love hearing about what some of our alums are doing. First up, Brad Batory of Indashio, who styled numerous shoots for us over the years and whom we met in 2003, has won VH1’s Glam God TV show.
   I’m glad we stood by Brad constantly over the years. It’s proof that someone conscientious can go places and that you don’t have to “join the crowd” if that crowd is a less than decent bunch.
   Brad’s prize includes a contract with leading style agency Artists by Timothy Priano, the coveted right to style for leading celebrity magazine US Weekly, and $100,000 cash.
   Before you think Brad is rolling in it and you’re all his best mates, bear in mind he has been spending a lot of his own money to get to where he is today. He’s also had to put up with a lot of backstabbers. I have seen first-hand what he has had to put up with.
   Knowing this, I could read in an extra meaning into his quotation today: ‘Pinch me! I’ve arrived!’ After five years of hard slog.
   Meanwhile, Lisa Cocuzza, who reported on Hollywood events for Lucire earlier this decade, has a new venture, It’s a Glam Thing—a great source for VIP specials and giveaways.
   And finally, Jon Moe, whose work has graced numerous Lucire covers (and I hope will again), will speak on Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. on fashion photography. ‘Join him in a discussion about how to find clients, how to market yourself, how to find the right equipment, and how to put together a winning fashion portfolio.’ The event is at the Apple retail store at 767 Fifth Avenue, New York City.
