Black History Month – Book Awarness!

The 1920’s, and 1930’s is one of my all time favorite era’s . This is a time when African American Culture was being introduced in other countries. It was not introduced in a anthropological way, but through Art, Soul, and Creativity in which African Americans embody.

A book that I would recommend as a must read for all. I came across this book at the Berkeley  telegraph flee market.  It’s interesting how great books are so cheap at these kinds of swap markets. The book touches on one persons journey to the Europe, but in barks on a more eye opening experience.

The Freshmen

Today I had the pleasure of co-styling Hip Hop group  The Freshmen, along with Music Producer THX, for a photo shoot.

I must say that these guys are so fun to work with. They kept the energy constantly going. Between the sarcastic comments directed towards each other. Or the colorful gesture made by A. Wolf of how an outfit fitted on Kristo. I didn’t know if I should laugh, or make a swift grab at a plaid collar shirt  for a wardrobe change. THX’s  creative flavor was full throttle on the set. As he brought his Southern Cal vibe, to a Northern Cal location.

Every fashion stylist has a time when they want to execute a look on someone that would not normally wear such an out fit. A. Wolf was my victim. Or at least  I  attempted for him to be. He had a way of saying “I’m not wearing this bleep bleep”, without saying it.  He constantly kept the jokes coming. So my attempt was unsuccessful.

The Freshman is defiantly a breath of fresh air to the rap game.

Please Stay tuned for pictures from the shoot.
