People tell Javan & I everytime we decide to put a few nice pieces together and step out somewhere that you guys look just like “Miami Vice“, I guess this is the epitome of what they are talking about. I’m not amping anything up, i’m j u s t saying.
Take a look, if you appreciate good looks. You’ll definitely appreciate this editorial for GQ Italia.
I decided to give the viewers into my life on a daily basis, instead of the prepared post that I usually do. My day consists of so much, one would be surprised that I could foster the energy to keep up with everything but that’s what the city requires! & that’s what I will give. So its [ n o t h i n g ] .

The University of Alabama New York City Alumni Chapter held a networking event for all the interns and all other unconnected Alumni in the city. I enjoyed it for a happy hour event. Food, fun, and a few drinks always closes a good day in the best way.

…the same day/evening as the networking happy hour event. I decided to tip into the Vibe Listening Party in the Meatpacking District of NYC. It was a pretty crowd full of fashion hipsters, bloggers, and artist. Plus, I chatted up Solange Knowles. I didnt get a photo unfortunately, it was so much going on but I had to speak with her being that she is a KNOWLES

With such a profound and prestigious background, I had the pleasure of catching up with Ugo and a few of his close friends at Brunch a few days back. The details are posted on the update “Brunch | Sat Jun 9“. He was one of the most welcoming industry savvy individuals I have probably come in contact with so far, completely hospitable on every level. Just being in the presence of him and his esteemed friends and constituents just motivated me to keep chasing what I want and reminded that “to whom much is given, much is required”
Here is a small depiction of his profound work.
I recommend that you do visit him at his website to view the rest of his work.
From the Co-Founder and Director of the original legendary New Music Seminar comes a conference for the Next Music Business. As part of the inaugural “New York Music Week” New Music Seminar and NMS NY Music Festival are rapidly changing music creation, exposure and monetization opportunities coupled with music fans’ changing music consumption habits are transforming the old “record business” into an entirely new industry. The New Music Seminar, with over 150 confirmed Players, is the meeting place of music visionaries, upstarts, and disruptors and where the old rules are broken and new ideas will hatch into a vital new music business.
The first of its kind the NMS NY Music Festival is scheduled to take place in 17 venues from June 17-20. NMS, along with their Partners, have brought together the best and brightest artists of the next generation for four nights of performances in NYC and Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
So I tipped into the red carpet smelling like Platinum Chanel and wearing extremely loud taylored Chuck Taylors, and met several photographers, music industry savvy individuals, and upcoming new artist. I must say that I enjoyed covering the red carpet for the opening night of this great festival. Many thanks to Hollis at WE + PR.

With this said, we want to keep expanding the brand and how we inspire others to achieve whatever they want in life. So I would like to formally announce TheBlaqueBook‘s intern.
We decided that it was time to actually implement TheBlaqueBook Internship Program that we had been planning since about a year ago to ultimately help the brand but more importantly give the opportunity to interested individuals to learn so much about the brand and even more importantly, learn the abilities that God has gifted them.
When asked Why do you want to intern for TheBlaqueBook? Klah wrote “I want to intern for TheBlaquebook because I’ve loved fashion since I was a kid. I love to try different ideas when it come’s to style. I believe this would be a great opportunity to enhance my fashion sense while also learning more about the industry…”
When asked to choose your favorite TheBlaquebook post and describe it in 140 characters or less. Klah replied Favorite Post : Its Ok, to be who you are* I love this post because it’s simple yet speaks volume. I’m not afraid to be who I am because I’ve grown to accept and love me. The world will love me too.
You can call this Klah‘s slight introduction to TheBlaqueBook. He has been working for the brand already. Atlanta he is our face in your area. Embrace it. You’ll thank us later.
Now enjoy this spread of his personal style.
