PREPPING OUR NEW DESIGN STUDIO.

The loooooooooong search for a design studio in the New York City area is now over. The company Fashion Alarm Mode is a design house which includes designers, Sharon E. Clarke, John1NY by Dexter John and a few others. It has been a real struggle over the years to obtain a space like this, If I begin to tell It would be too much to explain. The most important thing is that it is done, we are now in a space we call our own. It may not be in midtown but it is in a neibhorhood which is up and coming, we are up and coming too, so there you have it. FASHION ALARM MODE, SHARON E.CLARKE, JOHN1 NY by DEXTER JOHN. Other designers names will be added real soon. Watch out now!! Special thanks goes out to the movers and assistant movers, Katrina from New Orleans, Aron Prince Buba and Concept X Production team..

HIGH FASHION’S RACE PROBLEM AND ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIP-HOP, HIGH FASHION AND BEYOND!!

Kanye West’s comments on fashion’s race problem last week have got us thinking about the industry’s blind spot and its complex relationship with hip-hop, high fashion and beyond.

On Wednesday HuffPost Live took a closer look at the subject. Host Marc Lamont Hill was joined by an amazing panel of folks, including Vogue’s first back cover model and entrepreneur, Beverly Johnson; editorial brand manager for BET and image activist, Michaela Angela Davis; founder and CEO of Harlem’s Fashion Row, Brandice Henderson; Cosmopolitan magazine’s fashion market director, Shiona Turini; and HuffPost BlackVoices’ style and beauty editor, Julee Wilson.

The discussion was spirited to say the least, as the panel delved deep into the reasoning and repercussions of racism within fashion. In other words, it got real!

Diddy is looking for black beauty. Who remember P. Diddy’s cry for fashion model’s equal opportunity in 2008?

P. DIDDY TRIED TO GET EVEN WITH THE FASHION INDUSTRY. I worked deep in the fashion industry and on his team during fashion week in 2008 and I can still feel his pain. I hope one day we will all stop this continous history of racisim, period! We need a serious change especially in the fashion industry. Why there is no racism when it comes collecting and spending money? We won’t embrace change but we expect the young black man with his pants below his waist to change his style, how confusing we are.

And the racism continues……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
