This past week I recieved a award for Top Tri-state fashion bloggers along with Carisha Simmons of RunwayInk & Mohammed Shariff of Fame Appeal at Philadephia’s Premiere Networking Event, The IN Crowd.  Each blogger was recognized for their hard work and achievements in Philadelphia’s fashion community. Being that I am new to blogging as of November 28,2010 I am truly honored to receive this award & for the support from my friends, family & all those congrats tweets.

The event was an evening of networking for the Philadelphia Fashion Industry featuring vendors from makeup, hair care and business services as well as live makeup and hair styling demonstrations. In attendance were industry heavy hitters and fashion presentations from new boutiques, designers and stylist. All these components made for a great night and I am truly grateful to have been apart of it.

Your typical wardrobe is full of blue, brown, black, white and grey. It’s ok to play it safe but try infusing a variety of colors into your wardrobe and you’ll be glad you did it. The usually feminine color pink, is something most men feel like they can’t pull off. → Read more

“Working outside of my comfort zone”

Check out my cameo at the 1:07 mark on this year’s Roots Picnic Rewind Video shot by the Young King Yahya Ismail for OkayplayerTV. As soon as I walked into the picnic I was asked to say a few words. Lately I have been in front of the camera a lot. It’s not really my forte but neither was public speaking at one point. I am learning to adapt to my environment and step outside my comfort zone. As time progresses I get more & more comfortable being someone with a voice and sharing that voice with others. K.R.T.

Philadelphia INdustry Night June 23, 2011 7pm-10pm

I recently did a photo shoot with Cultured Couture Vintage modeling some of the great pieces they carry in the store. A collaboration of 6 models, we were able to put our own twist on the store’s rare pieces. The best thing about Cultured Couture Vintage is that they carry high quality vintage from exclusive brands like Lanvin, YSL, polo Ralph Lauren, Gianfranco Ferre, Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng, Brooks Brothers, Louis Vuttion and many more.
