Rhyme N Wine

Speaking of best boys ever, how could I ever say “no” to a collabo?

Marc, Shey & Shaun, (whom I met by kinda fluke and have become some of the most greatest & loyal friends ever) throw some of the best jams in the TDOT (best known for Hip Hop Love). I was more than grateful to help them out when they asked me to style their next flyer – Rhyme N’ Wine. A jam to combine the love of urban music with soca and calypso. Dope concept.

With little time to shop and come up with outfits catering to their theme and hitting up a serious Halloween party the night before (shit show massive), there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for these guys. Thanks for the restore Vitamin water Marc, that shit is MAGIC!

Nonetheless, we had a wicked ass time.
Our model and friend, the beautiful Shonelle – fully came in and killed it! YOU SEXY GYAL YOU!

Amazing team.

Garb what?

Garb Tenement!

Back in 2008, my boy and style partner Duane, a.k.a “Duane Baby” a.k.a “Baby D”, a.k.a President and CEO of Garb Tenement asked me to style their lookbook for their new line of dope hip hop tee’s for mens that they planned to sell online.

I was honored by the offer, but I hesitated. I never styled mens before, and I wasn’t confident enough at the beginning to do the job, but the whole Garb Tenement team put their trust and encouragement in me, and believed that everything would turn out perfect, and it did!

Might I also add that I had 1/2 an hour to whip out the wardrobe….weeeeeeeeeerrrdd!

After confirming a simple theme with an all white appeal, and “daily mens tasks” (haha), I had a better feel of what kind of vibe they were looking for.  Again, with the help of the best collabo team from the Black Widow photo shoot, this would have not happened without  them!

Needless to say, it was pure fun, jokes and no doubt a learning experience!
Look out for Garb Tenement!
