A World First: Karl Lagerfeld Fashion Exhibition Opens in Bonn, Germany

Image
Never in human history has a single fashion designer been as prolific as Karl Lagerfeld. Today, his name represents just as much an exhaustive body of work as an iconic character, one that rose to fame in the second half of the twentieth century to dominate the catwalks of Milan and Paris. His formidable talent has stretched far and wide, as he designed (and continues to, in most cases) multiple collections a year for Fendi, Chloé, Karl Lagerfeld, and, first and foremost, Chanel. Opening this week at the Bundeskunsthalle of Bonn, Germany, a selection of his most emblematic creations from all four houses has been brought together by Lady Amanda Harlech, his consultant and long-time muse, in the world’s most comprehensive exhibition of his work to date.

DOPE ARTICLE ALERT: What Hip-Hop Taught Me About Feminism

Image
I will never forget the first time that I saw the video for the TLC's "Creep." Those melodic trumpets juxtaposed against that sick hip-hop beat were a version of cool that was hard to ignore.

I was barely walking when the song came out, but I rediscovered it around the age of 12. Even now, at 22, I can still remember how much I wanted to be like those women. I was used to teen pop stars who peddled mixed messages about sex and power, like the famously virginal Britney Spears. But T-Boz, Left Eye, and Chilli owned their sexuality completely and still seemed strong, like they didn't need a man to define anything for them—like they were making their own rules musically, lyrically, and stylistically.(Via Racked)

Why major compaines want young stars as a Creative Director or Brand Ambassador

Image
It has become apparent Creative Directors seem to be the backbone of the fashion industry now a days. If you are 25-33 years old your in luck. This seems to be the age range brands are chasing to lead their brand in a new direction. Nike, Under Armour, Adidas & Carven has already set the trend. Contrary to belief extensive experience means zero now a days. These companies are taking risk and have a win now mentality. What I mean is if you have what they want your in luck. My continued desire to one day be a Brand Ambassador begins with me studying what these super stars have at such a young age and follow in their foot steps. As I embark on my new journey to enter new worlds I'm eager to become the young super star a brand is looking for. So Creative Director or Brand Ambassador I have 3 years left to get hired, Lol. (Crosses fingers) 

Brands I would like to be a Brand Ambassador for:
