Promoting uniqueness and individuality, every first Sunday I scope the room looking for the guy that deserves the Arts, Beats and Eats Best Dressed Spotlight.

“On the hunt for Danny Fox”

HyLo Boutiques brings you the culminating event of this month’s urban excursions. A scavenger hunt for calligraphy artist and jewelry designer Danny Fox. Danny Fox has a stunning collection of industrial sterling silver rings. A master of his craft, Danny can spend hours designing in his South Philly studio oasis. But he also has an itch to explore the urban playground that lies outside his door.

Hylo Boutiques and Danny invites you to seek him out at his favorite local spots Saturday, March 31 through Sunday, April 1 for instant rewards and chances to win big prizes from our participants—from tees to rings to lunch for two! Here’s how to play:

1. Visit participating businesses Saturday, March 31- Sunday, April 1 for a reward when you drop the name Danny Fox at the register.

2. Snap a photo of the #dannyfox icon at each location and tweet it @HyLoBoutiques using the hashtag #dannyfox to be entered into the raffle for insanely cool prizes from our merchants. Each tweet counts as a separate raffle entry.

3. Hit as many of the locations as you can and tweet a photo of each @HyLoBoutiques. The more photos we receive from you, the higher your odds of winning the prize.

Happy hunting!

“New Location for Arts, Beats and Eats” 

Arts, Beats & Eats is a monthly networking mixer in the city of Philadelphia that contributes to the well being of society, through health initiatives and community service efforts.  Shaheed RuckerGianni Lee and I have been implementing this event since May 2010. It  has grown stupendously in the Tri-state area as one of the must highly attended networking events for the young creative entrepreneurs. We have teamed up with Lauren Tilghman and Danielle Jeter to help further pursue our Arts, Beats and Eats goals into 2012.

Arts, Beats & Eats is an event where individuals can grow both personally and professionally. Monthly themes focus on “giving back” through toy, book, clothing and food drives. Other themes have focused on educating our guests on health, political and social ills that plague our community. Our event allows individuals to enjoy live art, spoken word, and fine music while shopping from different local vendors.

This month’s theme is Mind, Body, and Soul. Where we will present some of the best Artist, Models, Photographers and Designers.

****PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE*** The event takes place at North by Northwest located at 7165 Germantown Ave, on April 1st from 7pm-11pm.


“A key to success is consistent quality branding. Personal & professional.” 

Anyone that knows me personally knows I am not a fan of public speaking. Even though you may find me with a mic in my hand occasionally,  its usually never by preference.  I feel that once you’re in a position to lead, you must step up to the plate and do so. That was my thought process on March 8, 2012, when I was nervously waiting to present at the Apple Store for “Dukes Inspire Kings.”

Once I saw the amount of people that came out to support Seun Olubosum and myself for our collaboration event with HyloBoutiques, the excitement presented was unmatched compared to what I was actually feeling. We ended up having a full house, packed with people from all over to come watch us as we  discussed our companies and brands.  We focused mainly on the beneficial roles that technology and social media has played with brand-building in today’s market. - K.R.T.

The time is back for my 3rd annual #Roses event. If you attended or heard about Black Is Beautiful 4 then you do not want to miss this one. I’ve partner up with Shaheed Rucker, Bones of Hustler Records, and Ed Brown. We plan to bring you a night of excitement and good times. “Roses” will take place at one of Philadelphia’s premiere restaurants, The Chart House Restaurant.
