Give me that visual please!
An email was received stating there will be a Menswear Masterclass by School of Style taking place, Monday May 14th LIVE at 6pm ET (3pm PST) by Luke Storey and Lauren Messiah.
You know I signed up right?
It was free and lasted about an hour and one half lol.
Let's just say the engagement was greatly informative. I learned some key topics to the anatomy of man which significantly plays a role to the outfit. Three for ecto/endo/meso frames ha!
The purpose was to briefly touch on how to style men and double your income as a stylist.
The details will stay minimal for the sake of their program's creative content and that they offer an online self paced course. Read more here.
Special thanks to Luke for commenting on a prior post too. I want to see.
Most recently, I chose to narrow down my sector of styling to men because my aesthetic tailors the hidden tomboy in women but represented on a male effortlessly. I mean these are labels though. Plus, the paradigm is changing where men are gradually expressing themselves more candidly via clothing.
First session free, email me to get styled and understand this lane.
Let's have a word with one another.
Do you know who the male musician is above?
Welp! He's legendary in a category of art I style for.
Men in Music.
Men in Film.
Men in TV.
Men in ART.
Comment below your answer.
What a beautiful scene!
You know, this series (I'll be talking about it below, promise) just came to me after I finished managing a fashion show in Brooklyn under fashion influencer and blogger, Tyrone Farley last year. The show was the Master Pioneers Menswear Fashion Show that took place September 30th, 2017 at The Brooklyn Music School in NY.
Check out some images below:

OK, so I'm making my way downtown, walking fast.....
No, that's not how it went actually lol
I created the Vibrant Men Styling Series because I wanted a new creative outlet to showcase my styling techniques on men in vibrant settings.
So you're a male and want to be down?
You can't be afraid to take risks (because some locations may give you the "you can't be serious?" vibe.)
As well, are you doing something artistically creative? Should be a yes but we know, definitions vary.
So follow the IG page, like, comment and share if the soul warrants it then send an email , subject line: VMSS so you can be apart of the series!
It is ongoing with no definite end date.
Check out the models from the first photoshoot where we were published in CT Fashion Magazine 2018 March Issue.

You're awoken right? Up early or late, getting ready or not...the in between routine...yadda yadda. Ok! So, eventually within whatever it is you are doing, you come across my title. Dig deeper? Certainly.
Virgil Abloh as of March 25, 2018 became LVMH also known as Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy's newest artistic director. The first Black; this is mighty.
Existing as an Illinois native cuttin' records or a fashion power player running shows, for the runway...yes! Years ago, he developed with Kanye West a constructive relationship where an internship sparked the creative vision for many artistic projects. TIP: Releasing imagery, it is necessary to deliver high quality and individualism. Nowadays people like to look at images instead of read...don't debate me I took a poll on Instagram.
*busts out laughing*
This is true.
Mr. Abloh's OFF-WHITE clothing brand lifted the veil of simple creativity conquering the street vibe which launched in 2013.
View images above.
The crafty, Virgil Abloh did not take the route pursing fashion school to attain this current achievement. As a civil engineering and architectural alumni, that technical background merries the skill of detail, creative thinking, development and leadership needed in fashion design. No wonder! This is gracious and dually motivating considering I share half the background. Whet? Click here.
I commend and congratulate Mr. Abloh as it is a deserving and exciting accomplishment and I am sure the upcoming releases will be greatly effective to the wave of people drooling for his next body of work.
