What a wild turn of events it has been since the start of my internship with WAMO100! I’ve gotten to network and meet so many talented people that are stationed and present here in the city of Pittsburgh, but y’all already knew that. Someone in particular that I would love to introduce is one smooth cat, frost name Doug but he goes by DJ ColeBlooded.
With him just finishing his sophomore year at Robert Morris University this young gifted man has made a grand presence for himself through the use of his music mixes. With his mixtapes Open for Business 1, 2 & 3 featuring local artist Jimmy Wopo on 2nd mix and Gunna and Lil Uzi Vert on the 3rd, he’s been able to show off his musical talents. His mixtapes are available and can be downloaded on Spinrilla and DatPiff.
From deejaying events presented by Mr. Smalls and Faresh Brand: Maxo Kream to the Tilt party: Trapaganza this young man is on the verge to greatness. Be on the look out for what he has in stored for the city of Pittsburgh. Smooches!!
Make sure to check out his mixtapes Open for Business 1, 2, & 3!! Available now on Datpiff, Soundcloud and Spinrilla!
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!!
