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!

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.

WHERE ARE ALL THE BLACK MODELS?

Model: Poppy Okotcha

Today I wanna talk about models, you know – the models that you see in runway fashion shows and magazine covers. You may ask yourself, whats so different about this subject? I’ve heard it all before, what about it? In reality, you have head about it but the models that you see are the typical norm thats all over the fashion scene.

Let me explain – models nowadays are normally white, slim, tall, fair-skinned and they have the hair that looks like they just came out of a Guiseppe Franco salon in Beverly Hills. Yeah, its all the job of a makeup and hair crew but lets face it, its the typical norm and I really feel like our black models are really being left behind. Let’s give recognition to our up and coming future black skinned models shall we?

They’re almost always tall with beautifully tanned skin, unique hair and they also have the amazing facial features that are to die for. We have to agree that our dark-skinned models are fierce, sexy, and they have a certain something about them that commands respect and admiration wherever they may be. Lets meet one of these beauties and you can come to your own conclusion, shall we…

We need more dark skinned models on the runway and on covers of magazines…hey, why not? They’re beautiful!

Meet the model: Poppy Okotcha – she’s one of model managements newest faces and she’s 19 years old from Marlborough, England. Her favorite designer is Alexander McQueen but she’s also fond of Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs. Her future dream is to own her own eco-freindly fashion label. She also wants to change how little Afro hair products there are currently on the market. She would also love to someday portray Grace Jones because to her Grace is a powerful woman. I agree, Poppy – for sure she really is powerful and sexy! Here’s a few more pictures of this dark skinned beauty below…
