Get into the ‘KNOW’:Rachel Bilson wearing dress from Suno’s Resort 2011 Collection

by EkiuwaJ

Such a BOLD combination, really subtle animal print stripes, with a deep shade of pink, sunning pieces Max Osterweis(designer). More than two years ago when I was  first introduced to  Max Osterweis designs (via web), I instantly felt as if his work was African inspired …and sure enough I read an article about Max Osterweis and found out that he collected most of his pieces from East Africa, he spent over 10 years in Kenya, Africa collecting fabrics and gathering ideas, he then began designing in 2008. His many collections were inspired by the late 1960’s American Interiors, traditional East African textiles, Klimt, Turkey and many other places as well. Max Osterweis has been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire, Glamour, WWD and MUCH more.

This collection is to DIE for, its classic but with just enough edge. Its not just the patterns that catches the eye, its the structure of the designs that has me weak at the knees.  His work speaks volumes!

…Our Closet Dreamer for NOW!

Short Film: “This Time” written by Reagan Gomez-Preston and Directed by Matthew Cherry

by EkiuwaJ

“This Time” a short film that many have been anticipating for quite some time now, written by Actress Reagan Gomez-Preston.

“This Time” is the story of, Kevin (Michael Moss) a recently returned Iraqi War Veteran and his quest to win back his one true love, Cheyenne (Reagan Gomez). His first night back in town he meets up with his friends and finds out that she is engaged to a successful business man, Daniel (Sinorice Moss) and is to be married the very next day. Kevin runs into Cheyenne and her sister, Janet (Terri J. Vaughn) and confronts her about her decision forcing her to make a choice. Will Cheyenne be able to move on from her former lover and marry her fiance Daniel or will she choose Kevin?”

I have always been a fan of short films, but this was by far one of the best short films released to date. It shows true life situations, it shows what many women and men are facing today. Short films are straight to the point, but meaning holds so much weight. I encourage everyone to just take about 16 minutes out of your time to watch this short amazing film. It may shed light to your life, love life or any situation you may be placed in.
