“Im tryin’ turn it around, start this thing from the ground…&& as long as sthe you’re down i know….”
Davon Watson thee sweetest, humblest person ever to meet. He has started a venture that’s known to many but travel by a few. He is the owner of creator of the most recent clothing line “Less Travel” and because he’s the hack of all trades he also is the owner of his owner photography company as well called “DLW Photography”.
Me and Davon met earlier this year in February at a networking event called The Ultimate Powershoots: Valentine Day Edition. Which was created and put together by the beautiful, Nabila El-Bey, definition check her out for the next event to come in May 2018. She is the queen of connections!
Davon remains consistent with his work and he keeps his images simple and engaging allowing for the consumer and customer to crave for more. He’s recently expanded to his line creating more style geared towards females and males, whereas before it was more of a unisex approach allowing for wider range of awareness.
Photo credits by Davon..of course! Make sure to check him out soon because business is growing and business is booming! Follow on Instagram and Facebook for all updates and featured releases to come!
Earlier in the month, March 17th to be exact I was invited by local apparel designer Jacquay Hosey, known as artist Blak King Folk, to attend the 007: The Assassin Fashion Show put together by the Stampede School of Modeling and A Disease Called Hope in theDistrict of Columbia.
L. A. F. A. C. T stands for Ladies Are Fascinating Alluring Captivating Tantalizing; a understanding in which he believes is true for the most if not all women. His brand became a reality on the 2nd of February 2015, catering to the continued growth of the women around him, while using business to attract even more.
Essentially, business has grown, now reaching out to men, his style of fashion is street with a mix of lounge. Definitely a brand that can be worn daily; it’s simple and clean look allows for you to expand on your style while supporting his branded apparel. With an exception of a few specialty pieces like the one I’m wearing with the purple trim of leaves.
Catch up with him in Dallas, April 29th and Atlanta, May 6th to see what he has in stored next!!!
What a great weekend of voyage and connection in The District of Columbia that is! I got the chance to support L.A.F.A.C.T; local brand designer and musical artist Jacquay Hosey who goes by performing name Blak King Folk. L.A.F.A.C.T clothing brand is a fashion line that targets all markets, and was founded to empower young women and girls and create opportunities for them in fashion.
The fashion show called 007: The Assassin was presented by Stampede School of Modeling & A Disease Called Hope on March 17th, this past Saturday. There were so many talented designers from the DMV area, such as Greek Junky, Amorous by Lanee J., DJS Lifestyles, VI II IV Clothing, Hotmomma Designer…just to name a few.
A while back I had previously supported Jacquay’s album cover for “Playas Ball” as well as an model extra in one of his music videos “Any Day Can Be The Day” which peeked views of over 10k within the first month.
It’s not easy to brand yourself but we all must give credit where credit is due and this king is a artist whose managed to brand his own image on his own terms with his own vision. This calls for a future fashion review!! Smooches!!
“My bitch too foreign, need a visa (ooh, ) I don’t need her (huh?)
Pull up drop top with a eater (skrrt, ) two seater (skrrt)
New bitch wanna fuck to my AP (AP, ice, ) new freezer (ice)
I woke up thinkin’ ’bout bands (bands)
Hop off a jet to a check when I land (yuh)” ~Rich The Kid
Ahemm * clears throat* that’s my best friend, that’s my best friend!!
Another success to a well planned event put together once again by the beautifully spirited Nabíla Yasamen El-Bey. The beautiful Modie.J was the host for the night and DJ Goodnight was live on the 1s and 2s.
This time around I got to take a chance and do photography with Madela , half of the Picture It Wright team with Johnthan, and @ArtHousePgh. Awesome awesome awesome vibes from them everyone all evening. Y’all see that flower center chest it was painted by the lovely Allison Melczak of Mad Culture and Other Creative Things. Keith Blockton of KB Innovative Promotions was in the building, Kastles lingerie was everything and then some, Boonie the Kid has his Blue Diamond Vodka was in effect. Everything was dope!! I’m excited to start receiving my photos back from the event; which, by the way, will be posted in the next blog to come showing the work of the photographers. Can’t wait to see what Nabíla has in stored next for us. Smooches!!!
“So thick that everyone else in the room is so uncomfortable, Ass on Houston Texas, but the face look just like Claire Huxtable…”
First off let me just say I was supppperrrrrr relaxed this day from running around with all this school work and assignments and getting ready for the holiday because I work retail *ughhhhhh* I was looking a mess! But Jaèlaun Moses showed up to the Starbucks down Market Square looking effortlessly beautiful.
The energy that Jaè came with gave me that much more energy while being there with her. She has so much to offer while helping with the self esteem of women and men. Becoming a Duquesne graduated didn’t come easy but it was as a journey completed. While in school she started with her apparel called “Beaulity” and then her business evolved into women’s empowerment luncheons, modeling became a hobby, along with adding the title of author under her belt, publishing her first book at the start of summer titled ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered‘. This book is of letters written to specific people that had some kind of impact in her life both negatively and positively, written almost as if to be having a conversation . She’s in the works of a second book that will have the same concept but with a more open forum allowing for others to do the same thing she was able to do with herself in book one.
“I like my girlsssss BBW…”
Jaèlaun is rewriting the standard and raising the bar. She’s not the standard, she is above average and it’s the strength and love that she gives herself that has helped her flourish into the women she is now and still striving and thriving to become. Let’s make sure we keep supporting this magic so that this queen can keep producing black girl magic!! Smooches!!
