Janelle Monae.




Janelle Monae is a rising ICON indeed. With her debt album Metropolis: The Chase Suite Janelle Monae offers a new sound and style to the Hip-Hop/R&B industry. My favorite song is Sincerely, Jane; horns blast in the background as her angelic voice pours of poetic melodies. With lyrics like "I've seen them shootin' up funerals in they Sunday clothes.Spending money on spinners but won't pay college loans" she sends a message through her music while still giving you a beat you can dance too!!! If you haven't had a taste of her music be sure to look her up on http://www.imeem.com/ or itunes and JAM to the beat of JANELLE MONAE.

The Designers are already getting ready for Fall 2010 and so should you!!!!
































So even though its summer and still really HOT!! outside FALL 2010 is coming sooner than we all think, and if you're in HOT HOUSTON like I am the sooner it comes the better! (hopefully lol). But the one great thing about summer is all the winter clothes that will be on sale. Sales, the most perfect time to buy! To make sure you are purchasing apparel and accessories that will be "in" the looks by Bottega Veneta,Kenzo, and Balenciaga (from top to bottom) are a perfect example. Leather, Fur and Satin Drapery, are all things to look for while out shopping!
Other apparel and accessories that would be prefect to purchase are plaids, neon colors, any classic pump, BIG jewlery, shorts (yes shorts work in the fall), and any bright colored leggings and flowing skirts!

Solange Knowles, Sol- Angel, and the Future of FASHION



Solange Knowles is making a name for her self not only in the music industry with her debt album Sol-Angel & The Hadley St. Dreams, but is also making a positive name for herself in the social and FASHION industry. Being one of the most followed people on twitter Solange is on everyone mind and the talk of the Internet. Among her many accomplishments and through her evolving career her sense of style and fashion has also evolved. Solange not only has great style but is also innovative, takes risk, and most importantly dresses to please her self and NOT the media! I love Solanges style, she expresses herself freely in makes her own trends! Take notes, cause Solange Knowles in on her way to taking over in music and FASHION!

Kids and Fashion



So the other day, I was watching a documentary on HBO. At the moment I cannot recall the name or director of the documentary but it was about kids and FASHION and how it becomes important to them even at a very young age. The documentary interview several kids and there parents asking them about money and clothes. Some kids would pressure there parents into buying them fashions that they could not afford or get jobs just to support there image to appeal and fit in to a certain group, and appear to be a certain way towards there peers.

Personally , when I was in school what people wore was not that important. But as the generations develop it seams that fashion and money is the main focus. I love, love, love fashion but I would never promote children, or anyone to become obsessed with it. In present times kids get teased for not having a certain brand name jeans or tennis shoes. This is unacceptable.

Now, I don't like to blame the media because I feel that people are responsible for their and their children's actions, I think the media has a big thing to do with how little children view there personal image. Image is everything, and very important but children of elementary and middle school ages should not even have to think about it... But how do we solve this problem when the people on the TV are the ones thy look up to. You can't ask the celebrities to change there image, or clothes, or anything else because it how they represent and market themselves. To fix this, it is the parents, and school responsibility to teach there children the value of people, the value of money, and the value of image. Image, another NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show... How long will Victoria stay a secret???



We are all familiar with the famous Victoria's Secret FASHION show, and might I say it was FABULOUS but have you even noticed that when it is time for the finale walk there is never a designer that comes out and takes a bow with his/her collection. Now before the 2009 fashion show hit the TV screen it never even crossed my mind that the designer/creator/founder of Victoria's Secret never showed there face to the public. Now I know most of you think the designer is a man, maybe a woman? Who knows? Why is this? And will the founder of this multi billion dollar industry remain a secret?

Over my studies in the FASHION industry I have learned that some designers do not name there brand/label after them because of hopes of selling the business in the future. Could this be the case with VS? Again, Who knows? Or will we ever?

On a personal note, I think that VS was created by either a little old woman in some small town in East Texas who lives in a small house on a small 50 acres farm with her barn animals. She loves living her simple paparazzi free life and always intended to keep it that way no matter how big the business got. She probably didn't even expect it to get that big. But now she lets her grandchildren run the business and enjoys her retirement with her loyal husband Bill. lol :)

Thats all,

Definition of Fashion....

Depending on your personal beliefs we were all born into this world naked and intened to stay that way until Adam and Eve made that dreadful mistake... But if your like me, clothes are more than just a way to cover a naked body but FASHION. To me FASHION is more than just a way to fit in and look cool or acceptable among your peers but a way to express yourself, your stlye, your personality, your beliefs, the refelections of your FASHION are a refelction of you inside and out.

My definition of FASHION is everything you can think of rolled into one. When you first look at someone you automatically have an opionon of what kind of person you think they are. Sometimes a negative judgement, sometimes postive, but a judgement. Well how do you communicate with a person your entire being from just first impressions. If you notice it or not you communicate with others everyday, all day with out even saying a word to them. You persona, image, clothes, style, hair, skin, are all forms of nonverbal communication to the people around you. FASHION is one of the biggest forms of NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION.
