The Great Gatsby – My Movie, Music, and Menswear Fashion Review

I have not been this excited to see a movie in awhile. It made me smile just to see all of the trailers, which I felt were so visually hypnotic… and so crazy good. As you now know this movie is now in theaters nationwide as of Friday, May 10th. I was originally going to write a post about The Great Gatsby before it came out, but decided I could speak to it better once I had actually seen it.

Men’s Fashion Week Debuts in London!

featureimage-london fashion week
Women’s fashion, has been written about, spoken and showcased since centuries. There are fashion weeks all over the globe dedicated to women’s fashion. But how many of us recollect talking about the men’s fashion. Faintly. It is definitely one of those areas of fashion that is slowly but steadily picking up. One of the biggest evidence of the growing popularity and fashion sense amongst men is the newly introduced full-fledged 3-day Men’s Fashion Week in London.

Men’s fashion week was prevalent in Milan and Paris, and finally this year Britain decided it was time to showcase the British men’s fashion full throttle. So far, London fashion week used to be a 3 day affair for the women’s fashion and the last day was crammed with men’s fashion; that left very little time and a tiny space for the men. A lot of British talent, when it came to men’s designers, were seen moving out of the country considering the tiny scope of growth. Hence, keeping the increasing awareness of fashion amongst men, and giving and an expanded time and space to the men’s designers. The 1st men’s London fashion week was announced to be taking place soon after the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and in time before the Olympics 2012.

The fashion week finally commenced on the 15th of June till the 17th of June and was launched by none other Continue Reading

Get The Look: Tinie Tempah

Tinie Tempah feature image
Tinie Tempah is a British rapper, MC and CEO of Disturbing London Records. His first single “Pass Out”, debuted at number 1 on the UK singles chart In March 2010. I remember when I first heard this song, it was early 2010 and I was at a work event, the DJ introduced this song as ‘a song that was going to be big this year’ and boy was the DJ right!  From that day and onwards everywhere I went I heard this song being played. Each and every time “Pass Out” was played in a bar everyone  would go crazy! The infectious beat and the catchy, yet somewhat wacky lyrics, this song blew up in 2010 and made the world sit up and take note of the oh –so-stylish and very cute  rapper Tinie Tempah (real name Patrick Junior C. Okogwu).

Since then, Tinie has gone on to release other successful hits such as “Written in the stars” and “Frisky” and he has Continue Reading

Black Music Month – Pharrell’s Stereotypes

Streotypes feature image
Our first Monday Music Feature for Black Music Month is the very unique and creative music mogul, writer/composer, producer, artist, and fashion entrepreneur – Pharrell Williams. In 1994, after being involved in the music industry since he was in his early 20s, Pharrell and his childhood friend, Chad Hugo established themselves as a production duo called “The Neptunes”; which was the same name as their  “R&B type” group they had formed in high school. They went onto writing and producing tracks and songs for an eclectic range of artists throughout the late 90s.

In 2001, The Neptunes were getting recognized as the producers to work with for hit records. Later that same year they were working as a group and producing their own albums, and formed a hip-hop/rock/funk band N.E.R.D (No One Ever Really Dies) with friend Shay Haley, under Virgin Records label. In 2005, their band ended their contract Continue Reading
