Since I first introduced (Street Queens) to K.R.T., taking pictures of stylish women is always lots of fun during my travels. For some reason I see more stylish women than men and they are a little more creative with their appearance. I guess you can say it is because they have more options. This being my first time in London for fashion week one thing that I couldn’t help but notice were the various amounts of jackets of all sorts amongst the women in attendance. The weather over London was so tricky, so I saw a little bit of style from every season outside of the Somerset House.

Being that I only went to NYFW for one day I was excited to attend London Fashion Week s/s 2013. As I still consider myself a new photographer going to fashion week is a great way for me to test my skills. If you miss a shot you miss a great image and no photographer likes missing a great shot. Since this was my first time in London I made sure I paid close attention to the details on every person I encountered. I can honestly say that searching for style is easier when its right in front of your face everywhere you look.

A key part of a King’s lifestyle are his networking abilities. In my travel’s I had a pethora of opportunites to meet an array of different entrepreneur’s and learn from other brands within the surrounding community. With that being said, it’s extremely important to me that we support local brands that have a good message behind them or a unique standing. One local entrepeneur whom I’ve gained a great respect for is designer Connor Dickson, of Lancaster, PA. Connor Dickson’s brand consists of bow ties, belts, bags which all are essentials parts in a King’s wardrobe. Each product is completely handmade within an Amish community in Pennsylvania with great attention to details that ensures the customer is receiving an heirloom piece.
I recently had the opportunity to curate a photo shoot with Connor and his brand. With Lancaster, Pa being so close but seemingly so far away- it was definitely an experience to remember. Make sure you look out for this brand and their collaborations coming soon with K.R.T. – K.R.T.

Five of most influential brands (Chill Moody, Abstract Thought, Beano, Villla and K.R.T.) that are at the forefront of the new renaissance in Philadelphia are all combining our energy and resources to put together to a dope event titled “Coalition | One” with some of the best, new and up and coming artist and musicians the city has to offer in one place.
First event is October 20th. Each team (five teams) drafts 5 “players” from a pool of DJs, Live Bands, Rappers, Singers, Painters, Graffiti artist etc. Then each team gets 15mins that night to put on the best performance with that team. The winning team gets $1,000.
