That’s right. I am no longer a fashion week virgin, and what a way to begin my newest love affair! On Friday, March, 19, 2010, Directives West (www.directiveswest.com) hosted the First.LA Fashion Show featuring Fall 2010 looks from local contemporary designers. The event was held exclusively for media and fashion industry invitees and held at the beautiful Cooper Building in Downtown LA. As a reality TV aficionado, I was overly geeked to check out Jeffrey Sebelia’s collection, winner from “Project Runway” Season 3 (www.bravotv.com/project-runway), called Fluxus (see Fashion News “Fluxus appoints Jeffrey Sebelia as new Head Designer”). I did get to meet him in person at the end and of course asked him kindly to grant me an interview.
Just a few weeks after Raekwon’s “Only Built For Cuban Linx II” album release, I was back in NYC for Ghostface Killah’s “Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City” album release…It takes me back to Teamsters Union party days back in undergrad at Morgan State University when emerging artists at the time like Wu-Tang would test out their skills on the black college crowd.
