AYCE INTERNATIONAL PRESENTS JOHNNY PLATINUM’S MIXTAPE RELEASE EVENT!

Today I’m veering away from fashion for a bit and instead I’m going to write about some awesome music which I rarely do write about! This music really does merit a special space on my blog especially since its amazing and I really enjoy it.

This past weekend I got an invite from my amazing friend DJ AyCE International to the VIP rooftop Johnny Platinum Plus Mixtape Volume 15 Hot Sauce release event in Brooklyn, New York. Wow… thats alot to say in one sentence LOL but trust me it was well worth the trip and my wordiness.

This VIP rooftop event felt like the right ambience and the visuals I captured on my camera from up there were so amazing I couldn’t believe I was actually there taking it all in. There was also a small fashion show from my favorite designer John Ashford featuring his amazing models who rocked his shoes and made me want to buy every pair. My day went from fabulous to amazing when I saw Johnny Platinum Plus make an appearance and boy was he just as amazing in person. If you haven’t heard of him you have to look him up (Insta:Johnnyplatinumplus) he’s energetic and loves the ladies but his passion is truly in his music. His mixtapes are hot (like hot sauce) and really awesome to listen to. He has two different mixtapes out right now – a Hip Hop version and a Latin version for those that love Reggaeton and latin music. There was also food, drinks and lots of meaningful, intelligent conversation. Okay, I won’t spoil it for you and you can check it out for yourself as the pictures speak for themselves….

Isn’t this view amazing…them clouds though!!

We’re ready, lets go…Microphone check please!

Turntables and Red Stripe Lager Beer, perfect combination

DJ AyCE International in the mix

DJ AyCE International took over the turntables for a bit – he was killing it!

If you need a change in music choice and your a huge hip hop fan – you gotta listen to the Johnny Platinum Plus Hip Hop Hot Sauce Mixtape …its AliceInColorland approved and its really “HOT”! Not a fan of Hip Hop – no problem, read on…

Johnny Platinum Plus also has a Hot Sauce Latin Mixtape for you! This one is amazing also, I was just listening to it in my car and I wanted to pull over and dance. Its a great mix of Reggaeton, Salsa, and a few Spanish classics that some of us Latin music lovers can relate to. Its perfectly mixed so you’ll be shocked at how great it sounds!

There beer was chilled beer for the beer lovers in attendance…doesnt that look refreshing? Trust me there was a lot more than what you see here!

There was also chicken and “Hot Sauce” which was a was a hit… it was really freakin good! Check out the Lvovpoland Vodka in the background!

Music, Beer, friends, and food…what more could you ask for!

Dj AyCE International and DJ Ty One in the house..they were enjoying themselves!

Oh and can’t forget about John Ashford’s Spring Fashion featuring his amazing, hot, sexy shoes! Here’s the beautiful model Zephora rocking these lovely see through boots out!

Check these out…love the colors!

These strappy thigh high boots rocked the house….Fire!!!

The models were making things hot up on this rooftop… those shoes though!

It was hard to pick a favorite out of all these beautiful designs!

Finally!! I was so excited to finally see Johnny Platinum Plus in person and put a face to the name (well almost LOL). Here he is posing with mixtape cover model Khaliseecakes…this made my day!

Johnny Platinum Plus charming the ladies, he’s amazing…you need to look him up today!

I was sad my time in New York City was nearing to an end but I’m happy to have been invited to this event. I got to spend time with DJ AyCE International and John Ashford at this event – I’m stoked I got a two for one LOL. I also got to listen to Johnny Platinums mixtape on a rooftop on the most beautifulest day and enjoy the scenery too. What more could I ask for? Trust me, this to me was priceless and I could never imagine that I would ever have such an awesome experience in Brooklyn, Ny… trust me these people know how to party LOL.

BEAUTY AND THE SHOES

Travel, Travel, Travel ….I love to travel – its my tranquil moment of relaxation and serenity, the time to reflect on how blessed I am to be able to do what I do and love my experiences along the way. Its also my time to put my brain on auto pilot and let myself enjoy the sights and sounds around me. Ahhh..I love my life! With that thought in mind, my dearest friend shoe designer John Ashford sent me an invitation to his third trunk show in New York City and I was so excited all week for its arrival. The day finally came and even though the weather was a little cold, the trunk show was the highlight of my day!  Knowing that the event was gonna be featuring shoes and beauty products made my braving the cold all worth it!

For those of you that have never attended one of John Ashford’s events, it is truly amazing. This time there were twice as many shoes as the last trunk show and the people that were in attendance couldn’t decide between one pair of shoes or the other! They were all beautiful and for every pair that the lovely ladies tried on there so many fabulous comments. With the shoe shopping being highly successful – we also had Skin care/beauty products to compliment the whole look. The beautiful model and owner of Sensual Beauty Zephorah Nure, was present to feature her amazing Hawaiian Sensual Collection. Her line features a variety of products with exotics scents of Gardenia and Hibiscus and essential oils to relax you after a stressful day…sounds amazing to me!

I always enjoy attending John Ashford’s events because you can learn a lot from his conversations and you can try on and purchase as many pairs of shoes as many shoes as you want in a cozy, comfortable setting. The people are always so warm and inviting, the conversations are intelligent and at times funny – you literally walk in not knowing anyone and walk out with a few friends added to your list. These events will make you wanna stay for hours and never leave but at the end of the day you can be assured that you’ve met your shoe shopping fetish and little extra!

My trip to New York City is always amazing and when I get invited to his events, I feel like a kid in a candy store! Shoes galore and my undecisiveness on which ones to choose from! On this day, I chose an awesome pair that of Mrs.Pacman wedges – check the rest of the pics of the event below …These events will happen monthly and I can’t wait to attend the next one in April!

**Note: If you are interested in attending any one of John Ashford’s Trunk Shows – please send me or John Ashford an email at: aliceincolorland15@gmail.com/johnashford1@gmail.com for more info on future events – don’t miss out**

I always enjoy John Ashford’s events because you can learn a lot from his conversations and the conversations of others that attend. The people are warm and inviting, the conversations are intelligent and at times funny – you walk in not knowing anyone and walk out with a few friends added to your list.

THE JOHN ASHFORD TRUNK SHOW

15443150_10154281733264075_8922832747485162394_o

A few days ago, I struck up a conversation with a friend and the subject of my fashion experiences came up. While I reminisced about my invites to various exclusive shows I mentioned that I had been invited to a Trunk Show that would be taking place in a few days. She didn’t know what a trunk show was so I proceeded to inform her of what it was about and how fun they are. She was very excited and wanted to know when the next one would be happening. I informed her that she would personally be invited to the next show and we would go together!

Now I am assuming that most of my followers who read my blog would know the fashion terminology but for those that don’t, I will tell you what a trunk show is and no it isn’t a show that sells or shows off trunks for you to buy LOL. Heres the definition of trunk show: a sales event for showing merchandise to staff and select customers. That, my readers was exactly what it was and more…

 Last week, Shoe designer John Ashford called me with some amazing news – he was having his private trunk show event in Clinton Hills Brooklyn, Ny and I had first dibs as blogger/photographer for that day! You can imagine how excited I was and I didn’t hesitate to accept his invitation. My excitement for the rest of the week till then as you can imagine was through the roof. Being a fashion blogger does have its perks and I’m so glad I could experience it and share this with my readers! Take peek at the pictures from the Authentic by John Ashford’s private trunk show sponsored by Barefoot Wines! Oh and I purchased a few pairs of amazing shoes of course!

THE BUZZ: NYC FASHION WEEK 2015

This past weekend was an amazing one for this fashionista! I attended two events, one in which my dearest friend John Ashford of Authentic by John Ashford Shoes was featuring his designs from the John Ashford Art of the Shoe Show sponsored by Who Wore That Magazine and Huberts Lemonade. His often colorful, sometimes seriously sexy, and at times unbelievably amazing shoes are really a sight to see…really – you’ve got to have a look at them. Wait, what am I saying? Ladies, you have to own a few of his shoes. They’re handmade plus they’re amazing and he only makes them custom so no two pairs are alike…I like that! I already own a couple from his exclusive collection and the fashionista in me is loving his designs. Don’t wait – get a pair, or two, now!

For the second event of my day, I met the lovely Martu E. Freeman – Parker owner and founder of M.E.F Style Report and she really kicked it up a notch for me. She invited me to Style Fashion Week at Gotham Hall and I couldn’t have been more happier to attend. I was right there happily holding my camera in hand, ready to get my much awaited fill of a fashionista’s dream. The moment was exciting and the event was fabulous.

The designers that had their collections featured were: Quynh Paris, Esosa, Santa Clara Moda, Chrisber’y, and Anthony Rubio. The show was amazing and the models looked beautiful. The designs were stunning and featured beautiful colorful, flowery headpieces, flowy dresses in stunning, vibrant, colors and there were even beautiful bridal dresses that were fit for a few goddesses. Oh and I met and took a picture with a celebrity from Project Runway – how cool is that!

Between the anticipation of seeing what shoes Mr. John Ashford had designed for the event and the fashion show I attended, I have to admit it was overwhelming but it felt great to be available to experience these moments. The events were successful and I got to meet some amazing people along the way. I’m always grateful to meet such talented individuals at these events that can inspire me in any way. Can’t wait till the next one – check out the pics of the events below! Thank you, I appreciate you all!

This weekend has been amazing! I attended two fashion shows though the city that never sleeps was a literal icebox…..I mean it felt like someone really pissed mother nature off. Even though it was frigid that didn’t stop me from getting to anything fashion related.

Despite today’s weather I attended Authentic by John Ashford and Karo’s Swimwear Summer Collection. Karo’s swimwear line consists of chic bathing suits and jeweled monokinis with delicate embellishments that are the epitome of today’s modern woman. John Ashford brings you unique shoe designs that make woman beautiful and feel sexy with every step taken in his shoes. This show was truly amazing and if you weren’t there, you definitely missed out on an great, sexy, show! It was frigid outside but these models were holding their own with so much sexiness in the building. But let me not spoil the details for you, check out the sexy models in the pictures below!

DSC_0090

Fashion week is in full swing and this week I’m in Nyc. I love to be in the city for exciting events, meeting lovely people, and of course my obsession attending and blogging about fashion shows wherever they may be. Yesterday I had the exciting opportunity to attend Authentic by John Ashford and Shadeth’s Fall/Winter presentation and if you missed it you definitely missed out on a really great show. The event was held at Voga Lounge & Grill, Nyc and the decor was really chic and it was the perfect setting for the models to show off their Authentic by John Ashord’s amazing collection of sexy shoes. The models were also wearing fashions by designer Shadeth – if you like unique fashions then check out her site at SHADETH.COM – her designs are amazing! Check the pics below….

I remember ages ago mentioning that I would love to attend fashion runway shows or to be able to have a dream job thats fashion related and I also remember stating that one day I would like to walk into the Yotel in Nyc and stay there for a week or a weekend. Staying there didn’t happened but I at least got to walk in and see what this hotel looked like inside, it was beautiful. Let me tell  you how this opportunity came about…

Last week my amazing friend Shoe Desingner John Ashford asked me if I was able to attend a Fall fashion show called Runway the Real Way hosted by Catherine Schuller. It was going to be held at The Yotel in NYC so of course I jumped on the opportunity to attend. It was Halloween weekend so I figured why not plus I would never pass up an invite to attend one of his amazing shows if its in my power to be there – trust me I will attend, LOL. I couldn’t wait to see what kinds of shoes John Ashford would feature at the show but I know that it would be a phenomenal show and the shoes would be on fire!

The event was called Runway the Real Way hosted by Catherine Schuller and I was excited because John Ashford’s models were wearing some his new never before seen handmade boots. The boots were beautiful, hot, and the models were looking sexy. I had the opportunity to style some of them and assist Mr. Ashford in any way needed. The Yotel NYC also provided us all with an amazing breakfast which I myself highly appreciated – Thank you Yotel. This event was quite an experience, I am beyond happy and I thank you, John Ashford, for trusting in my abilities to get the job done efficiently. Check out some of the pics from the show and our awesome sponsors below..

Theres no doubt that I will always consider myself an Authentic by John Ashford fan, his designs and shows are always different as you never know what he has in store for us ladies. The element of surprise and the anticipation of what kinds of shoes or boots he will break out at a show just makes attending his shows fun and exciting.

THE TALENTED ARTIST JOEY OSO’S MASTERFUL HEADPIECES EVENT!

image

NYC in itself can be fun, crazy, and at times unbelievable. I think that today was one of those days and if you weren’t present at The Cutting Room on 44 E. 32nd Street you missed out on a great show. Artist Joey Oso presented us with his Masterful Headpieces made all out of nails, yup you heard it – Nails, you know, the ones that you put in walls. Yes those nails! They were on his headpieces and I was shocked (but in a fabulous way) when I saw them. You needed to be there as it was an amazingly success show with a cool fun vibe to it. If you weren’t in attendance you totally missed out on some crazy headgear created by the talented artist Joey Oso himself, amazing handmade shoes by Authentic by John Ashford and some sexy models that had some creative makeup that made the whole runway show an incredible sight to see. The models also wore amazing vintage clothing styled by Francis Urrutra (her style is really fabulous) and that made the show look phenomenal. But don’t take my word for it let the pictures below speak for themselves….

JAY GODFREY’S SS2015 SPRING COLLECTION PRESENTATION… SO CHIC AND AMAZING!

Lg1

 Today I am in New York City and fashion week is in full swing, I’m loving it because you can feel it in the air (well at least I did LOL) . Today I attended J. Godfrey’s SS2015 Presentation and boy was it amazing. It wasn’t like a traditional runway show like I thought it would be but to me it was even better. The models wore his designs and were all on a rectangular platform and we got to take as many photos as we wanted to. I really loved this presentation as it let you take a good look at the models and the amazing designs that J. Godfrey put forth for Spring. Every little detail was worth looking at – from the shoes to the accessories and hair, it was all amazing. I loved the way this event was all put together, from the friendly staff, to the beautiful models, to the music which felt so eclectic and fun. I really really enjoyed the music it was different and I love different. But most of all his creative designs were amazing. Check out the pictures below and see how beautiful and chic J. Godfrey’s designs really are. They truly are made for that classy, modern woman who knows what she wants to wear and she wears it well. Let me know what you think…

STEVEN BAGLEY: A PHOTOGRAPHER AND HIS BEAUTIFUL VISION

Steven5

I have mentioned in some of my blog posts that I am appreciative of the people that I meet in this new chapter of my life. I feel so excited and am so eager to learn from every experience along the way. While attending a photoshoot in New York City, I had been introduced to a phenomenal photographer named Steven Bagley. I didn’t know who he was until I was told that he has photographed major models and celebrities, now I was intrigued. The rich and famous fly him all over the world to be photographed and his work does not lie, he also specializing in photographing the most beautiful women using natural light and his surroundings.  He has also won Model Mayhem’s Photographer of the year, now thats a huge accomplishment, congrats to you Steven – well deserved. I have seen his amazing photos and they are truly works of beauty and art. Heck, I even want to purchase one of his photos so that I can frame it and hang it in my bedroom, thats how amazing his work is. He has a vision and he produces the most amazing photographs I have ever laid my eyes upon.

Who is this phenomenal photographer? Steven Bagley was born in Philadephia in a family of photography lovers. He left home at the age of 19 to travel and in Rome he studied to become a film editor and worked as an assistant film editor for NDR in Hamburg and Radio Bremen in Germany. He currently lives in New York City where he works from his midtown Manhattan studio. He also has access to his rooftop so that means amazingly beautiful Manhattan backdrops with beautiful models.

Steven Bagley, an amazing, talented photographer!

Now what do you think of his work! Amazing right? This man is so talented and he is such a professional at what he does that even the models at a photoshoot that I was invited to were feeling so comfortable in their environment. Now that should tell you what kind of person he is. He is always smiling, is very polite, and accommodating. So if your ever in NYC and want to do a photoshoot with him for whatever occasion it may be, get ahold of him. I recommend him for all your photo needs and from the looks of his work its so worth it!
