Ultraviolet Album Release Party for Justine Skye

By Akela Moore

Brooklyn born Justine Skye signed to Roc Nation at just 21 years old is a growing force to be reckoned with. I will say I was excited to attend this album release party because I hadn’t had the pleasure to see this young woman perform or indulge in her previous songs but I have to say I was truly impressed not only with her but her FANS. They knew every word and were so supportive it was touching. As you walked through the Lightbox event space in Times Square with a Purple Unicorn Dusse cocktail in your hands, the walls displayed comic book Justine Skye dealing with relationships and you ultimately learned that his album is her level up moment where ultraviolet is her grown woman place of peace and time to show the world she is not just the young girl with the purple hair but a diva in the making.

By Akela Moore

So about three years ago I discovered Young & Able, a curated online store and seasonal pop-up shop representing emerging brands in fashion jewelry, ceramics, home, beauty and art objects. I knew the brand when it was just starting out so it was great to learn of his temporary space at the Refinery Hotel. This 4th Annual holiday event was celebrating women-owned businesses and connecting artists. In partnership with Pop Up Nation, you can stop in at the pop at Refinery Hotel located 63 W. 38th St will be open until December 31st.  (more…)

Louis Vuitton’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez Exhibition

By Amber Monaé

Last Friday I decided to venture off to the popular LV exhibit to see what they have to offer and believe me they did not disappoint. It is only right the exhibit takes place in New York being it is the Fashion Capital (some may argue that) so us New Yorkers for sure can appreciate the latest fashion exhibit in town.  Located at the American Stock Exchange, the layout of the exhibit is breathtaking. Every room has a different story that is well executed. The historic journey of the luxe brand, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the United States of America and New York City (duh). The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives. (more…)
