  When I arrive to NYC my life is a fairy tale that people dream of every night. NYFW men’s collection was just a week ago and I attended the Brett Johnson show styled by celebrity stylist June Ambrose. Brett show was full of amazing menswear that you just wanted to snatch off the models and put in your closet for your next event. During the fashion show June & I were able to finally meet and it was a pleasure. Below is my favorite piece from the collection. This is a must have staple piece for next Fall winter. Also a all red suit was another ensemble that caught the eye while giving my mind a fashion heart attack!

As for the men it was very slim pickings as far as best dressed was a concern. Ciara & Taylor Swift was best dressed! Beyoncé made a apprentice and it give us a givenchy moment.

Art is the world. It brings creatives together in a great way. In Baltimore each year there is a event that is given by a dope entrepreneur that go by Cheyane Zadia. When it is around this time of the year music artist, poets, producers, designers & entreprenurs put on there best ensembles and network to the full instinct. I attended this year and when arriving it reminded me of the NYC experiences I had because it was in a secret location that was hard to find but when getting inside I was shocked by the setup. Painters Aaron Maybin, Rags, Davon Carey & many others had there work displayed for everybody to see at the event. Poets showcased there work but putting there life situations & accomplishments into deep words. 1914 affair was amazing we danced to Tony Toni Tone all the way to A$AP Rocky & Drake. The light refreshments included Ciroc & Complementary wine. 
 

Style was androgynous & people wore what they felt. I didn’t feel that there were anybody best dressed but people really did make effort and over all it was a great time. I would recommend if your in Baltimore to attend if your in the area next year.

Yeezus 2 collection NYFW

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Yeezus 2 collection NYFW

   Kanye breaks the rules again! West unveils NYFW collection in front of a star-filled crowd and matching Kim and North – but last-minute show and ‘beige’ designs leave fashion pack unimpressed. Despite much controversy over Kanye West’s decision to show off the official New York Fashion Week calendar, the rapper unveiled his second installment of Yeezy on Wednesday afternoon.
Much like Yeezy I, which was made in collaboration with Adidas (Yeezy II, is not), clothes included nude body suits and layers upon layers of utility separates (parka jackets, long coats, oversize knits, hoodies, and tailored canvas pants) in colors ranging from blush, to army green, brown and then black.
And while the show attracted one of New York Fashion Week’s most star-studded front rows thus far, with guests including Anna Wintour, Drake, and Lorde, as well as Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian and his sisters-in-law Khloe and Kourtney, and Kendall Jenner, despite its last-minute scheduling, it seems that fashionistas further afield were not overly fond of the rapper-turned-designer’s latest Yeezy offering.
