#inspiration for our next editorial— #GarethPugh’s AW14. The concept was already there but seeing this has made me even more excited!
A #sustainablefuture is within reach. 
“There’s always something dealing with opposites… It’s unnerving to look at, but it’s not clear why.” Gareth Pugh

Yesterday marked one year anniversary since I completed the first installation for the #FuturisticAFRICANA story. 

Also, today marks the birthday of the MUA— @sexandcandy_x3 who lost her life in a most tragic way. She didn’t get a chance to see the pictures but I know she is now 👼 Continue to rest in Peace

#Volunteering in #BergenCounty for #HurricaneSandy victims— I am helping to rebuild the home of Barbara. Her story was/is very emotional. 

I am the team captain for my store. Needed to do this— helping people gives me focus.

The World Cup is finally over— it has been a good distraction from what’s going on in the world. 

If it could be one way to unify the nations of the world—confront the issues and take each day to solve them. Congratulations to #Germany! #Brasil, the games are over. The time for social & financial equality is NOW.

Women in Africa and the Diaspora: “Loza Maléombho”
Loza Maléombho is the designer and founder behind Loza Maléombho, a New York based women’s fashion line producing in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. Born in Brazil and raised between Côte d’Ivoire and the United States,Maléombho found an interest in fashion at the young age of 13, designing dresses for her mother, aunts and cousins. She moved to the United States in 2000 and graduated in 2006 from the University of the Arts of Philadelphia with a BA of Fine Arts in Animation. Maléombho wasted no time in thrusting herself into the fashion industry after graduation by moving to New York. She interned with designers Jill Stuart, Yigal Azrouël and Cynthia Rowley before finally starting her own brand in 2009. When asked about her decision to produce in Côte d’Ivoire by Fashionista.com, she responded: “I decided to produce in Côte d’Ivoire in order to have control and flexibility over my production and because I realize we do have valuable resources to trade on an international level. I had also hoped to provide jobs and fair living wages to post-war Ivorian women, thus showcasing Côte d’Ivoire’s artistry with positive and lasting social and economic changes.”
