My beautiful fashion followers, I have not been here for you as much as I wish I would have been this last year.  This evening I have a simple post, a simple thought that just came to me, inspired by a cheesy movie, but none the less it has led me to share my little insight…

DREAMS MEAN ALOT, & WHEN UR KID DREAMS R THE SAME A UR GROWNUP ONES…. ITS TIME TO LEAVE THIS LIFE BEHIND, & TAKE THAT SHOT.

*****FASHION OR DIE EXCLUSIVE*****

This week I had an incredible opportunity to meet a young, rising star in the hip-hop game.  His name: 10 Million, his game: World domination, his swagger: Priceless!  I received an email from Camille Davis, CEO of Montage PR, inviting me to spend some time with her artist as he hits the Miami scene.  DONE!  As I read through all the wonderful information I was sent, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  Born, Demetrious Deon Anderson, his bio read like every rap/hip-hop “Behind the Music” or “True Hollywood Story” I had ever seen.  He was raised by his loving yet strict maternal aunt in Brunswick, GA, struggling his entire young life.  At 13, his life was completely altered after his aunt passed away and he was reunited with his mother, who, unfortunately, was herself in an abusive relationship.  At 15 he decided to start a journey that will eventually take him to super stardom!  That was when a close cousin anointed him: 10 MILLION.  Since then, his career, locally, has sky-rocketed and nationally it is gaining momentum.  At a young age, 10 MILLION isn’t just creating a brand, he is creating an INDUSTRY.  The formula for most rap careers, the succesful ones anyway, has been simple, street cred, album, fame, celebrity, then cross promotion such as fashion line, movies, television.  10 MILLION’s approach shatters that formula.  He and his team have learned from their celebrity counterparts, not only in the hip hop world, but in every genre of “celebrity”.  He has learned from the likes of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, or any other “E” Television “celebrity” that the key to world domination is EXPOSURE.  Of course unlike those previously mentioned, he has the talent to back it up.  On the music side, he dropped his first independent album last year, appropriately enough on 10.10.10.  Music, however, is not his only game.  He has the talent and drive of a “LIL WAYNE” but the charm and charisma of a young George Clooney.  Last year he also worked on two movies, the horror flick “The Cthulhu Key Legacy” and will be the voice of Duce in the cartoon epic, “The Fixers”  both of which were directed by Jason Heath and are to be released by the end of this year.  His latest venture is in our world: FASHION!  I mean really, why waste those good looks?  10 MILLION made his NYC Fashion Week debut in Indashio‘s Spring 2011 runway.  Indashio as you may (or may not) remember was the winner of the VH1 show GLAM GOD (yeah i didn’t watch it either).  However Indashio has managed to create a great buzz as a designer and stylist since crowned the GLAM GOD.  And that my fellow fashionistas, brings us to my meeting with Mr. 10 MILLION himself here in Miami!  When I met with the artist, he was shooting some publicity shots with the fantastically artistic Florida based photographer, Alicia Nicole Triscuitti.  He was also filming for what he hopes will become the next big reality show, with videographer and friend, Derek Odom.  What he was most excited to talk about with me was his latest collaboration with famed stylist and designer, CAMARI STARRZ. Starrz, who you can follow on Twitter @IAMTHESTARRZ, also founded “THE STARRZ” MALE MOVEMENT.  “The Starrz is in a class all their own”.  Together they will embark on a fashion rollercoaster.  A full fashion line is in the works, everything from your toes to the top of your head, they will have something to put on their consumer.  What will make this line different from all the other urban lines?  What will make this different than any other high fashion line for that matter?  I’ll tell you what, their mission statement: ‘URBAN FASHION AT ITS HIGHEST POTENTIAL”  I for one, am on board and trust me when I say to you, my fashion followers, you WILL want to join me for the ride!

Now you won’t be able to get the full effect of his charm unless of course you watch this fun video we shot!  I would like to preface this by saying I am not, nor do I pretend to be a movie maker.  This is just me and my coolpix shooting the breeze with 10 MILLION.   Trust me ladies, you won’t be disappointed!

10 MILLION: MESSAGE TO THE FANS AND SHOUT OUTS

 

The Gap announces a new venture to their empire, a flagship store in Milan, Italy.  This is Gap’s effort to break into the global fashion market.  Italy is the perfect choice to start since Italians apparently spend 3x more on fashion than Americans.  But how does the Gap plan on gaining fashion cred in the high fashion world of Milan?  Team up with one of the most prestigious fashion houses of Italy: VALENTINO!  Now this is nothing new in fashion, heck Lanvin just released a highly anticipated line for H&M which had customers lined up around the block for the debut on Saturday.  However, I think, considering Mr. Valentino Garavani has let go his reins just under two years ago, this particular collaboration could be a risk for the new design team of  Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.  So what could fashion’s most exclusive high-end label have to offer the price conscious American company?  Well that will be answered by a seven piece collection set to debut in the Milan store soon.  The line will include jeans starting around $82, classic gray Gap T-shirt and sweat-shirt cotton and also heavier khaki-green cotton jackets, graced with vintage Valentino bows and ruffles.  I will be giving it the benefit of the doubt until I see it for myself.  So bring it.
