Find out more about this menswear maven, designer, and entrepreneur below!

What inspired you to pursue a career in fashion?

“I would have to say, my mother. When I was young she taught me how to sew, we would make clothes together while watching sports on TV, now its really all come full circle, making clothes for professional athletes!

How do you feel about the modern fashion industry and the image influence of rappers, athletes, and public figures today?

“Music is very different then sports. Musicians usually have a more casual style that’s very flashy and trendy. I personally like a more polished look, timeless and classic. I think athletes have more opportunity to wear a nice suit and tie, game day, press conferences, etc. We live in an interesting time where the celebrity is so accessible to their fanbase and they can use that power to advertise and influence what they think is trending or important. I love social media because when these public figures are constantly being photographed, they cant wear the same outfit, it keeps my business strong!”

Who was your favorite promenint client that you styled and why?

“I love all of my clients but if I had to pick I would say Magic Johnson and Russell Westbrook. Magic is my mentor and the one who encouraged me to start this company, hes a consistent client and always so supportive. Russell, Ive been working with since he was drafted and his draft day look is very different from his style today! Its been so fun to watch his style grow and change. I have so much fun designing with Russ, hes not afraid to try new things and think outside the box, we are always on the same page when it comes to fashion, I just get him.”

What advice could you share for other women inspired by your career path?

“Have faith. Never burn a bridge. And love what you do!”

What are your next big plans in fashion?

“I now provide Donum shoes and I am so excited about it. Donum shoes range from size 10-18, catering to my larger then life clientele. The line was created in Milan by founder, Gladys Bolivar. The shoes are now produced in Columbia and helps to provide single mothers with jobs while a percentage of shoe sales goes to building a school across the street from the factory so their children can be nearby.”

‘Game Of Thrones’ Delivers First Major Character’s Death

TheSource Feed - Mon, 07/31/2017 - 9:12am

Revenge is a dish best served in a goblet full of poison, according to Jaime Lannister. Sunday’s episode of “Game of Thrones” came with a surprising ending when Jaime Lannister and his army attacked House Tyrell’s castle, Highgarden. When Jaime found Olenna he handed her a poisoned drink, which she accepted without protest.

But before she died, Olenna made sure to get the last word in. She let Jaime know she was responsible for Joffrey’s brutal death.

“I’d hate to die like your son. Clawing at my neck, foam and bile spilling from my mouth, eyes blood red, skin purple,” Olenna said. “Must have been horrible for you, as a Kingsguard, as a father. It was horrible enough for me. A shocking scene. Not at all what I intended. You see, I’d never seen the poison work before. Tell Cersei. I want her to know it was me.”

Olenna’s death is another major blow to Daenerys’ team of allies. First she lost Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand (and the Sand Snakes), and now one of her wisest counselors is gone. Just last episode, Olenna advised Daenerys to “be a dragon,” so perhaps we’ll see Daenerys heed that advice in the wake of her death.

Though we’re sad Olenna won’t be around to deliver any biting quips or witty comebacks, at least her final moments were just as badass as the rest of her scenes on the series.

Finally hearing Olenna confess to conspiring for Joffrey’s murder was brutal, given how much Jaime truly cared for the boy plus the fact that Tyrion very nearly died thanks to Olenna letting him take the fall for the regicide.

Nine People Dead After Venezuela’s Bloody Election

TheSource Feed - Mon, 07/31/2017 - 8:39am

At least nine people, including an election candidate, have been killed in the past 24 hours in Venezuela as the country voted for an all-powerful new legislative body tasked with reforming the country’s constitution.

Country’s opposition parties boycotted Sunday’s polls, which they say is aimed at consolidating President Nicolas Maduro’s power.

Counting of ballots across Venezuela began on Sunday night after the voting was extended by an hour. Preliminary results were expected before the end of the day.

Shootings at protests killed a 13-year-old and a 17-year-old in the western state of Tachira. A soldier was also shot dead there. The death toll also included a 30-year-old regional leader of a youth opposition party in the northeast town of Cumana and two protesters in the western state of Merida.

Anti-Maduro activists wearing hoods or masks erected barricades on roads and scuffles broke out with security forces who moved in quickly to disperse the demonstrators.

The president, elected in 2013, has faced months of protests for presiding over a debilitating economic crisis that has seen high inflation rate and shortages of food and other basic amenities.

He has pressed ahead with the vote to create the all-powerful constituent assembly or temporary parliament despite US sanctions and months of violence which has claimed the lives of around 120 people.

The US has condemned the violence, urging governments in “the region and around the world to take strong action to hold accountable those who undermine democracy, deny human rights”.

THE RAPPER HAS SOME CHOICE WORDS FOR HIS FELLOW CHICAGO NATIVE

Vic Mensa on R.Kelly: “He needs to be locked away forever.”

TheSource Feed - Sun, 07/30/2017 - 10:06pm

Vic Mensa is one rapper among many others who isn’t afraid to let anyone know exactly how he feels, pun intended. He’s just released his new album The Autobiography and TMZ who recently caught up with the Chicago rapper asked about two pretty big names in the media, especially right now. When asked about how he felt about Justin Beiber cancelling the remainder of his tour dates, in which Mensa was set to open for, he paused for a second before he answered truthfully. “[He’s] been on tour for two-and-a-half years straight, touring the same album. That can be exhausting,” Mensa said sympathizing with the pop star. “I’ve cancelled s*** before so I got to understand where he’s coming from.”

When asked about R.Kelly, Mensa wasted no time firing back a response. Mensa referred to Kelly as a “scumbag,” and a “very dirty man.” Before the end of the clip, Mensa added that Kelly should “be locked away forever.” Watch the full video of Mensa’s quick Q&A above.

The Source’s Unsigned Hype Alum: Eminem

TheSource Feed - Sun, 07/30/2017 - 6:17pm

It’s crazy to think there was a time when the world did not know who Eminem was. The essence of The Source’s Unsigned Hype column is to highlight names that deserved more recognition and to hopefully help those artists to be catapulted into the hip-hop scene. Unsigned Hype is forever prideful about being the first to see the potential in many big-name rappers, but one of the most notable alumni is definitely none other than Slim Shady.

Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, first appeared on The Source in March of 1998. Riggs Morales, who was a writer at The Source and is now vice president of A&R at Atlantic Records, penned an article about a dope new rapper from Detroit. Little did Morales know that his piece would be the start of the career of a hip-hop legend, and his article would be seen as one of the most iconic hip-hop editorials.

The article aged extremely well, and reading it over in 2017 will make you wonder how Morales was able to hit it so spot on. “Point blank, this ain’t your average cat,” he writes. “This Motor City kid is a one-of-a-kind talent and he’s about to blow past the competition, leaving many melted microphones in the dust.” Judging by the immensely successful career, which includes fifteen Grammys, countless chart-toppers, a great acting debut and the title as one of the best-selling artists of the 2000’s, the words of his Unsigned Hype article were right. Eminem has become a trail-blazing rapper who has influenced  a sea of artists and fans, which is why documenting the culture is so crucial. The short and sweet article about Eminem in 1998 reminds us of a time where Em’s flow and aura was still fresh and new, and it’s just another way to save a bit of hip-hop history.
