My Label projekt

DSCN1075The ensemble: Shirt: Yves Saint Laurent; Jacket: Forever 21; Chinos: Polo Ralph Lauren; Shoes: Maison Martin Margiela 22; Shades: Tom Ford

This past weekend, I met up with a colleague (my photographer) and one of my close martial arts friend whose modeling on a photoshoot for my upcoming t-shirt label, Xiaolin Lotus. I don’t want to give out too much information (Instead, there will be more material at the end); however, I must say it was a great success! All events does not go according to plan. One of the models was not able to show up. Besides on certain circumstances, I was not happy how unprofessional it was. Needless to say, it was a blessing in disguise because the shoot was in and out! Afterwards it was great to catch up with them and express my gratitude for helping out of the two things I am passionate about, martial arts and fashion!

I seriously love working with Renesha (the photographer). She is probably one of the most humble and open-minded people I have ever met. This is perhaps our 4th projekt together. Our artistic chemistry is always head on. It’s almost like finishing someone’s sentence. Challenging ones creativity in friendly competitive way. Her artistic ability is increasing at a progressive pace. Can’t wait to show everyone what is next!

Forever 21’s expansion

This past weekend was the new grand opening for Forever 21 in Louisville. The store recently relocated to the other end of Mall St. Matthews. When I saw this was like the talk of the town, its merely an understatement!

Here I am with my forever 21 cable knit shawl collared cardigan with my D&G shirt and Jeremy Scott wing 2.0 Adidas

My son’s mother and I went this weekend. There were some bad females in there too (we friends so its safe lol) On the other hand, the store is massive! The lines were wrapping around the mall with highly anticipated shoppers anxiously waiting to grab their garments. 21 men was also included in the store (no more online orders lol)! Having a huge love and passion for fashion, it was definitely worth your while. Store is being divided into specific themes to accompany the consumer’s taste.

From the college boy meets girl look, East/West night life chic, to the bohemian aesthetic, this store has you covered! Sad to say, I visit the store about 4 times since it has been launched. Ya boy had to use his special ninja stealth skills for a few snap shots for you all to take glimpse of the largest store in the region!

Another D&G and Jeremy Scott collab layered with the rocawear Jacket.

Afterwards we went out grubbing. Another day of shopping from the greatest single parent fashion duo lol.
