NEW FACE: FILIP HRIVNAK @ Soul Artist Mgmt.


I had an opportunity to do a portrait session with fashion's new face Filip Hrivnak. He is represented by Soul Artist Mgmt. in New York, M Mgmt. in Paris, and I Love Models Mgmt. in Milano.



Filip has walked international runways for designers like Givenchy. He appears on the cover of men's fashion magazines like Seventh Man and Vogue Hommes International cementing him as a hot model on the rise. 


With his uber cool look and his engaging personality, it's no surprise that this guy is one of the new faces to watch out for. I'm very excited about everything that is happening for Filip and look forward to seeing more great things happen...#returnofthesupermoddel

GOTTA GET ME A PAIR OF LVL XIII


Seandon Roberson was  one of the  first  models  I worked with I moved to New York. Even though he's no longer a model, he still will flex and pose for my camera. He is currently the Marketing Director for an awesome  new line of luxury footwear called LVL XIII. After seeing one pair of the shoes up-close, I asked  Seandon to bring a few  pairs  for me to photograph for this story.



LVL XIII (pronounced Level 13) is a luxury shoe brand founded by Antonio Brown—a former accountant who worked for a luxury doll manufacturer, the Alexander Doll Company. LVL XIII represents a luxury lifestyle brand that specializes in high-end shoes that utilizing top grade leathers and exotic skins.




This unique collection of footwear has caught the attention of celebrities like musicians Chris Brown and Jason DeRulo, who wore a pair on Good Morning America, rappers Nas and Jim Jones, supermodel Tyson Beckford, and athletes like New York Knicks player J.R. Smith and Kroy Biermann of the Atlanta Falcons. Actors Nick Cannon, Tracey Morgan, Jason Sudeikis, Chris Tucker and Tristan Wilds have been seen in them too.


I tried on a pair and they made me feel like i should be on stage .... like a superstar. :)


for more info about the shoes you can contact Seandon at sean@lvlxiii.com. For shoe purchase online lvlxiii.com or carbonbazaar.com

.... BEAUTY IS DIVERSE.


Despite it being Black History Month and all the attention on the ny fashion week runways, little has changed. After crunching the numbers on 148 shows, it is reported that of 4,621 looks, only 985 were worn by models of color. That means that of all the models who walked this past week, 78.69% of them were white. While that number is slightly smaller than last season, it still hovers around 80 percent, which has been roughly the percentage of looks worn by white models for the past six seasons.


another low-blow was the March 2014 issue of Details Magazine featuring the top male models and no one of color was included. 

( no Tyson Beckford, Rob Evans, David Agbodji,Armando Cabral, or Corey Baptiste....)

 When i was  growing up in the 80's and 90's ELLE Magazine was my first choice when i could get  the money up to buy a fashion magazine. It was one of the few magazines that i could find that displayed a broad diverse beauty. they thought of its readers on a global scale.


What i don't understand is that its 2014 and we live in a global accessible world  and we are still fighting for diverse representation in the fashion world. Why is it so hard to see a broader representation of beauty? Back in the 80's and 90's ELLE Magazine did an excellent job of showcasing women of color instead of treating European standards of beauty like its the template of beauty. Back then diversity seemed effortless. Now it seems so deliberate and forced. 

I would love to see the industry showcase broader ideas of beauty in a seamless way that feels genuine.... WHY IS DIVERSITY SO HARD?

One of the must see fashion shows during New York fashion week back in 1995 was Todd Oldham. He was notorious for featuring a variety of the best models and they were a diverse mix that didn't seem forced. They looked like  the  graduating class of the most beautiful women in the world.
