NYFW: Stylin on Em': William Okpo A/W 14 Presentation

Beauty and style were in abundance at 51 Astor Place for the presentation of Darlene and Lizzie Okpo's A/W collection. It was great seeing familiar faces, and of course meeting new ones.. PLUS I got to meet the ever so stylish Solange Knowles! She is a huge supporter and fan of the Okpo girls.

PS. I can't wait to share photos of the collection with you. Edited, and highly detailed.

Stylized: Sherman Joseph & Preston Williams of SHERMAN | PRESTON

Tell me about you: where are you from?
We're from New York, NY.

How old are you?
Age is limiting and we strive to be timeless. However, we are definitely old enough to drink but young enough to disregard the consequences.

What do you do?
Curating connoisseurs dabbling in the realm of fashion, art and overall creativity. Most notably, we are at the helm of SHERMAИ|PRESTOИ, a contemporary tailored brand conceptualized for the metropolitan man.

When did you know that Fashion was something you were passionate about?

Fashion resonated as a passion for us when we realized that the marketplace was unable to communicate to us as consumers. Cognizant of the budding era of like-minded fashionable men, it became evident that the industry’s inadequacy left this niche unsatisfied.  To help fill that void, we set out to cultivate endeavors that spoke to men not only aesthetically, but conceptually as well.

What has been your biggest accomplishment to date?

Our ability to turn ideas into reality. Transforming basic materials into works of art. Utilizing our opinions to create a vision that others have learned to share.
Simply amazing.

What advice do you have for others aspiring to do what you do?

Let your actions dictate your legacy.

Life quote: If there was one quote that summed up your view on life, what would it be?

“Just do it or shut  up."

How can we stay connected with you? !

Avec Ces Feres | Art Comes First

 Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of being in the presence of Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of "Art Comes First" as they brought their tailored wears and sound aesthetic to Liberty Fairs. Watching Sam as he gave creative direction to the subjects posing in front of the camera. Styling subjects in their wears and suggesting poses; great energy to be around.
