Brooklyn based fashion designer Suzanne Rae's Spring/Summer 2015 collection is encapsulated by head to toe monochrome black or white with the occasional pop of a head to toe painterly print. The collection captures a women's ability to embody both the delicate and the strong in one simple look.
I wonder if the wearing and promotion of the "faux," normalized the style, causing the explosive resurgence of real fur back to the center of our culture. I believe that wearing anything that looks like fur advertises the trend and encourages others to dress that way.
Could you describe yourself in two words? That's the question I asked myself after watching Snoop Dogg's video for 'What's your Pleasure?' his smooth, smoky collaboration with Daz Dillinger.
As far back as I can remember, I always admired the graffiti art surrounding California, especially three legendary graffiti artists, Revok, Reyes and Steel, who recently filed a landmark lawsuit in California against embroiled fashion designer Roberto Cavalli.
Poor ole' plaid gets a bad wrap, i.e. slutty schoolgirls, your grandmother's ridiculously overdone curtains, and who could forget, the Burberry-wearing prepsters. But, it's making a serious come back -- more urban cool and less Hot Topic-y.

"Fear is debilitating" -- as cliché as this phrase may be, it's something you should remind yourself of every day of your life if you are or want to be a business owner.

Peter's minestrone is the stuff of legends on the New York dinner party circuit. Hungry for the details? Grab your Côtes du Rhône and cozy up, because I'm spilling the beans.
Litke's S/S '15 fashion show at the Great Jones Street Gallery combined mod looks from the 1960's, especially those in The Happy Island (1972), with the quilted patterns of American rustic.
It didn't come early in my career (understatement, as 59 years old is a dinosaur in the youth-obsessed fashion industry), but maybe the best should be saved for last... My prophecy at the age of 4 took a bit longer to come true than imagined, but it's all about the journey.
St. Maarten is a tasty turquoise jewel with 34 square miles of lush mountains, postcard-perfect beaches, and talent. A lot of it.
