THE RISE OF TREND 45 AND CEO REMY LEWBEL
TREND45- a company based out of Detroit, Michigan founded in 2017, offers collaborations between artists of all sorts. Remy Lewbel CEO & Founder of Trend 45, stated in an interview “This is a place where imagination comes to reality. A brand that strives to bring out the most extravagant photography and art products as artists.” Trend45 is a luxury to bring and provide artists to a venue they have been dreaming of being at to create. These events help to connect with the artists or models they’ve seen online from all over the world. After the event is over, a few weeks later there will be a magazine published of content created from the event that the artists submits to the company. This is a plus to the artists as it gets your content out to the world via print and with an online magazine that can be viewed. Trend 45 has also recently extended to Los Angeles, having a section of the company there as well as Michigan.
Trend 45 has traveled all over the world, having multiple events in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana&Illinoisin less than one year. Then they traveled to Los Angeles California. Currently they have a trip on March 2nd, 2019 to Bali Indonesia, their first event outside of the United States. All events normally have a cap of 50 artists who sign up, so the event do not get over crowded. The tickets typically sell out quick.
Trend based on their projections, plans to be a multimillion dollar company in the next 2 years.
On the Trend 45 site, you will find a tab of “Events” this is where you would buy your tickets for the events. Everything is included from food, transport including airfare if needed to the event location, top housing or compound, (everyone gets a bed on the campus of the event), event excursions around the area of the event, exclusive events and much more depending on which event you attend.
Also another thing Trend 45 does, is help brands, agencies, and labels of all kinds. As they have a direct ticket to help market and give advertising content to the client and allow them to bring their content or service to the events, to make connections to artists as clients, and also get content as a company for advertising in a week from the artists, instead of waiting months after the shoot.

WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO RELEASE AFTER THE GREECE EVENT, WE WILL BE TRAVELING TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IN JUNE, 2019!

Remy stated in an interview, “My team is one of the hardest working teams I have ever been apart of, I make sure this environment is perfect for everyone no matter what! Safety always comes first, as it’s my first priority when artists come of all ages to my events. My team knows what to look for as we also have security at all events 24/7.”
Remy put into words that he was thankful for his team and it isn’t possible without them, and would like to give a shout out to all his team members by name and position…
“ADAM MICHAEL JOHNSRISK MANAGER,JIMMY QUANG NGUYENCHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, SARFINA BETH JOHSNON PUBLICIST, JARED MICHAEL SCOTT PROMOTIONAL DIRECTOR, BRANDYN BELEVENDER CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, ALISON FINLEY MAKE UP DIRECTOR, HEIDI KAY EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, NADIA BLACK SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR, LOGAN WOLANSKI WMU UNIVERSITY REPRESENTATIVE, HANNAH LEPAGE GRAPHIC DESIGNER, CLAIRE MORINSENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER, BROOKLYN CALDWELLSENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER, OWEN DANIELSLOS ANGELES DIVISION STYLIST, VIKTORA BAUMGARTNER LOS ANGELES DIVISIONMUA DIRECTOR, MICHELLE BOEHMLOS ANGELES DIVISION EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, DE’ANGELO LOWRANCE LOS ANGELES DIVISION SENIOR PHOTOGRPAHER.”
He would also go on to state “I love giving back.” Remy ultimately made the decision, that from all events, Trend 45 will donate 50% of all proceeds to help women recover who have been sexually assaulted by paying for their therapy and treatment.
In summary, Remy has stated multiple times in articles, videos, and social media posts, that he does not care what your experience is with art. I will help you if you want to be apart of the Trend 45 family, he will work with you to get you into the position you want to be and help expose your talents. “It’s part of giving back to the community” he said.
Some statements taken from the Trend 45 site…
“TREND45 TO ME IS A FAMILY; IT’S A SAFE PLACE, IT’S A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN BE YOURSELF, IT’S A PLACE TO CREATE, IT’S A PLACE TO BE YOU.”
“IN JUST TWO YEARS WE WENT FROM UNDERESTIMATED TO PRAISED. WE BUILT AN EMPIRE NOT TO JUST RAISE AWARENESS FOR A GOOD CAUSE BUT ALSO PROVIDE AND EXPERIENCE YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE. THAT’S TREND45”
-JARED MICHEAL SCOTT
“MODELS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, CREATIVES, ETC: ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A LUXURY EXPERIENCE PAIRED WITH OTHERWORLDLY EXCURSIONS WHILE NETWORKING WITH LIKEMINDED INDIVIDUALS? ASK ME ABOUT TRAVELING TO BALI, INDONESIA WITH THE MOST FUN CREATIVE FAMILY OF ALL.”
“TREND45 IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO MEET NEW PHOTOGRAPHERS AND CONNECT BUT ITS ALSO A WAY TO FIND A FAMILY OF PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU WHO MATTER. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND GOOD FRIENDS.”
“HONESTLY, IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW BAD YOU WANT IT. TREND45 IS AN OPPORTUNITY. A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN COME AND CREATE THE ART THAT COULD POTENTIALLY CHANGE THE COURSE OF YOUR CAREER. OUR CREATIVES ARE INNOVATIVE TREND SETTING ARTISTS. WE DEFINE THE ART FOR TOMORROW”
“SOMETIMES, YOU EXPERIENCE SOMETHING IN LIFE THAT YOU CANT DESCRIBE BUT CAN ONLY FEEL. THAT'S WHAT TREND45 IS TO ME. WHAT STARTED AS A COLLECTIVE OF CREATIVES, SLOWLY TURNED INTO GOOD FRIENDS, THAT TURNED INTO FAMILY. ITS MORE THAN JUST A NETWORKING EVENT. IT'S AN ESCAPE. A WAY TO PRACTICE YOUR CRAFT AND GET NEW IDEAS FROM NEW PEOPLE. WORKING TOGETHER TO CREATE SOMETHING GREATER. SEEING THE WORLD, AND GROWING ARE JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS TO TAKE AWAY FROM TREND45. TREND HAS SHOWED ME THAT A WEEKEND CAN FEEL LIKE A LIFETIME, GIVING YOU MEMORIES YOU'LL NEVER FORGET!”
Remy Lewbel also has been recognized for his poetry. As he stated in an interview, “My inspiration was Eminem. I love music but, I am dyslexic and it holds me back from a writing career as I wanted to write a book. In my case I create poetry as a hobby and helps me understand things from a different perspective.”
Remy is 22 years old attending Western Michigan University, originally from Birmingham, Michigan. He is currently a junior pursuing double major in sales and marketing, with a minor in communications. All of this schooling has helped him succeed in his career as the Trend 45 CEO. His company has succeeded well beyond the universities expectations of a student. Remy is also a model at the Trend 45 events.
Remy stated at the end of the interview, “Trend 45 ultimate goal is putting the creative in a perfect scenario to create and network. I have had artists start at Trend who had no experience and became professionals in their field.”
