I’m currently en route to Harvard to speak on a panel on Breaking into Fashion!
This week definitely qualifies as my busiest…ever. I’m interviewing Bravo’s Fashion Queens tomorrow (have anything you’d like to ask them?), then heading to San Antonio, Texas for the Blogalicious Conference with Toyota this weekend! Yesterday, I combined quite a few events into one day, shooting interviews at Harlem Haberdashery and doing a Closet Confessions video with my homie Legendary Damon!
The videos will be up throughout the month (I’m trying to add some sparkle to Fashion Bomb TV). Until the videos are ready, please enjoy these flicks!
My first stop was Harlem Haberdashery, a custom clothier beloved by everyone from Rick Ross and Jay Z to Carmelo Anthony and Lebron James.
They got their start in the 90’s under the name 5001 flavors, and were instrumental in outfitting most of hip hop’s bold faced names (think Biggie, Diddy, Total, and Missy). Their Harlem location carries an edited selection of designer and original pieces, and also offers custom creations for the everyday person who might want to look like a star.
I also learned about @TakeCareofHarlem, a movement that seeks to feed hundreds of Harlem’s homeless.
After snapping a bit of street style of friends and family of HH, including Brittny of Valencia Atelier…
…I headed to the next engagement!
The evening called for a pop by party promoter and style curator Legendary Damon @LegendaryDamon‘s crib.
His closet is absolutely amazing. Though he described his style as, “I can wear anything,” I’d say he’s one of the boldest, brightest, and best dressed gents in New York City. To wit: He had no less than 3 outfit changes during the video. I loved it!
At any rate, I can’t wait for you to see the videos. We’ll be rolling out weekly vignettes. In order to get updates, be sure to subscribe at Youtube.com/FashionBombTV or just stay tuned to this space;)
