Have you heard?! Did you know?! That’s right, issue 13 of Copywrite Magazine just dropped January 15! The anticipation has been killing me and I am proud to say, with the final results, everyone involved in this issue has exceeded my expectations substantially. Thanks to every single individual who made this issue happen!

I must say, learning that I would be in charge of styling the winter photoshoot definitely had me a bit shaken up! This would be the first time I had done anything this major. These are models who take their image seriously, a photographer who will have his name on his work, and an editor-in-chief who has their heart throughout the project. Yikes! 
Walking in and meeting the models as they arrived reiterated that nervousness all over again. That is until something started to happen. My mind went on autopilot and I began doing what I would do at home as I’m headed out with friends, grabbing clothes! One of the things I am most thankful for is the level of comfortability everyone brought onset. Once first looks went on, it was lights, camera, action! During this time, I took the opportunity to set up looks for the second half. Now the fun part was putting together the looks without necessarily knowing who would be wearing what! I must say, I cannot imagine anybody in anything other than what they wore. To have that freedom and still knowing that I was trusted to make this shoot happen, really humbled me and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity!

Recently I have been battling myself on if this is something I want to continue and with the release of issue 13, I feel like it was a confirmation that I was and still AM doing the right thing.
Thank you to our wonderful models who brought our vision to life:

And a special thank you to our photographer @seanchris for capturing everything through his lenses!

Fashion Friday - "One Time for Sagittarius Season"

“One Time for Sagittarius Season “

Happy Friday Milwaukee! With 2018 coming to a close, that also means its time for my BIRTHDAY! The year has been so good to me with joining CopyWrite, having the opportunity to style some of Milwaukee’s finest, and collaborating with creative giants. It has been a great ride! 
This weekend I am celebrating my 26th and as your fashion ambassador, its only right that I step out in style! The vibe was black and gold to represent the royalty we are. This shirt has been laying in wait in my closet for such an occasion and you can’t go wrong pairing your statement pieces with all black! Hear me and hear me good! Your look can say a lot when you bring simplicity.

Fashion Friday - Shine Bright

Hello Milwaukee!

Here we are again already for Fashion Friday! These weeks are flying by which means summer will be leaving us soon. :(

Even with last night being a bit chilly, that didn’t stop Elijah from bringing the heat! Until recently I had only seen him on social media so when we ended up at the same spot, I had to grab him for a photo! From head to toe his look hit the mark for me....did you peep his footwork?

To keep up with Elijah and the moves he’s making in fashion, you can follow his Instagram @profashional.eli and also check out some dope merch he’s recently debuted!
As always stay fly and #supportthelocal !
