“Amateur Night” at the Apollo

February 25th, 2010

A few friends and I ventured uptown to Harlem to check out “Amateur Night” at the Apollo Theater last night.

Since 1934, every Wednesday night at 7:30pm aspiring artists and performers have graced the stage of the Apollo Theater with hopes that the magic of the hallowed stage and the approval of the infamous audience will launch their careers in the entertainment world. Apollo Wednesday night alumni are an impressive and ever-expanding roster of world class talent including such legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Ben E. King, Jackie Wilson, The Isley Brothers, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, Fat Joe, Lauryn Hill, Dru Hill, Blu Cantrell and many others.

Check out the lungs on these two guys…who will hopefully continue on the history making trail:

a definite must-do if visiting NYC!

Coterie–NYC

February 24th, 2010

Coterie 2010 concluded today in NYC!

Coterie is a trade show known for sparking worldwide trends with  hand-picked designers comprised of both established names and the young, avant-garde designers. It is a culmination of fashion RTW and accessories that introduces new lines, trends, and seasons to the public. A plethora of buyers from boutiques and retailers from across the globe push their way through the lines to get their order in with the most coveted designers.

TRE: new-comers to the Coterie scene...and what a hit they were!

As new comers to the Coterie scene, TRE was packed every time I passed their booth!  TRE is a up and coming, hot line that caught my eye. Conceptualized by the NYC-based (yet international blooded) socialite duo, Marisa Brown (Brazil) and Ulrica Lanaro (Sweden), the accessories line is dominated by ultra fun, modern, and affordable italian blown glass rings and necklaces.

The pair have followed Parisian Renee LALIQUE’s lead who is now being shown at the South Street Sea Port in NYC.
