Down at Fashion Institute of Technology seven talented students got a chance to show off their collections. Although, some better than others I must say the collections were pretty well done. Model wise I wasn't to impressed. Nothing against looks just the walks. Whenever I am watching a runway presentation the look of the collection isn't what it's all about. It's about how it's presented by the model. Designers Erica Appleby, Marvin Inabinet, Jordan Jackson, Eva Mohrman and Ashley Padmore kicked off the show. Also what really impressed me was the live performance by Kimberly Nichole. She was amazing! However what really built up the hype of the runway show were designers Christine Smith and Joshua Myrie. These two are very and I mean VERY talented. Excuse the crapy IPhone photos, but I hope to find higher quality photos later on in the week.

Okay, so these past 2 or 3 years a lot of people have been rocking snapbacks, I for one have fallen into this category. It's hard not to, It's something about snapbacks that are a little bit more better than regular fitted hats. So here is my top snapbacks that I've recently had my eye on.

Finally, the end of my freshmen semester. It was crazy in the end. But well worth it. I'm so glad to be pretty much done... I love how my final project for photoshop came out. It was to create a fashion advertisement of your product that you've made this past semester. I decided to use my handbag. And I also shot this myself! Take a look! Feel free to add some feedback!

A$AP rocky, Known for that Purple swag. This dude and the rest of the A$AP mob have been killing it. Recently Rocky teamed up with Theophilus London on a track called "Big Spender" I'm glad these two have teamed up. It's time rap develops a new original sound. Not about what we're used to hearing today. This video right here is one of my favorites. because this video has a purpose. Creative man. I can't wait to hear what A$AP rocky has next. Also his style is on point! I'd say he has potential to be a Fashion Icon to most people these days.
