Mint Swim Collection 2018

D esigner and former reality star Draya Michele 's showed her Mint Swim collection o n night two of Style Fashion Week during NYFW. This show was jammed packed with fashion influencers, fashionista and celebrities. In the front rows  was  La La, Fabolous, Christian & Justin Combs and Masika Kalysha, Briana Wilson, Breah Hicks   to name a few. Draya gave her audience what they can for, the collection was over the top sexy and playful with a great color story . Its always  great to see swimwear in February especially when its 28 degrees outside. 


 On February 11th, Romeo Hunte New York presented the Fall/Winter 18' collection during a runway show at The Standard, High Line. The lines were long  to get in the show and its was raining, but so worth it. I was so impressed  with as  many as 29 models of African American ethnicity or decent strutted down the runway in shearling, fox furs, mixed fur with patchwork, PVC, and reversible raincoats, cropped jackets. The space was intimate but for a reason not one detail went unnoticed. The guests  300 editors, influencers , bloggers and fashionista watched this amazing parade. Romeo Hunte was one of my favorite show this season, j ob well done definitely a brand to watch.

Fashion Lion Dapper Dan

Dapper Dan was high fashion in the 80's every rapper, fl y girl and guy had a custom jacket, short set or suit from t he king of Urban Fashion. Dapper Dan  born Daniel Day opened his original Harlem boutique in 1982. He sold custom-made designer clothing to celebrities such as Mike Tyson, LL Cool J and Eric B. and Rakim and p retty much every rapper for over a decade. The new Gucci store will offer made-to-order pieces designed by Dapper Dan in custom measurements. The is everything for Urban fashion, he stand a long as a designer to compete with one of the largest luxury brand and win in the end. I'm so proud of Mr. Dapper Dan, I never met him or was able to wear his custom clothing but I've always been a fan. You are truly a FASHION LION!  You make us PROUD! Pictures courtesy of Google
