Rock and Rollers from all over the city came to enjoy a night of music, mingling and fashion. The band TSI, which was founded in 2004 by Geoff Lenox, performed "Make it Mine", "Hands off My Rock & Roll" and more. Reverbnation.com described their sounds as "loud, catchy, and danceable music." They're primarily a punk band, but they are also influenced by many varieties of rock n' roll and metal.
I had the pleasure to attend Betsey Johnson's Birthday Bash yesterday located at her Soho Boutique on Wooster street. She is known for her welcoming and colorful personality and "flirty" and "sassy" style. Johnson posed for pictures with her admiring fans and also made a few thank you speeches. She also announced yesterday that she would be a judge on !
R - La Vita means "The life" in Italian, it is the life that we all as individuals chase.
Whether it be for the riches, the fame, the modest life, or whatever it just incorporates
the life we have all dreamed of living.
R -I have always had a passion and a love for clothing. The way it feels, the way you can alter it to fit your personality, so I was basically tired of wearing what I felt like was generic clothing and decided to make a change and provide what I felt could be timeless, première clothing that you could wear years from now.
A - Besides La Vita what other brand of clothing do you wear?
R - I am a major brand of no brands! I love it all of Hanes' white tees that you can cut up to high end Bally shoes I just love it all!
A - How will your clothing line benefit others?
R - I plan on donating some of the profit made from the shirts to the heart society.I feel my clothing is more than just clothing; its a movement that shows young individuals everywhere that no dream is to big if you believe in your work, stay passionate, and stay humble. I also believe that the life you chase can be attained.

S - How would you describe your style of music?
P - I describe my sound as pure art, people like to call it indie pop, and I'm fine with that, but at the end of the day its just a sound of a piece of art I created.
S - Who are your influences in the music industry?
P - In music I'm more influenced by KanYe than any other music artist, his words and the way he creates it into major hits is one thing that has inspired not just my music life but my whole life. I will mention Amy Whinehouse, Lilly Allen, Eryka Badu, MGMT they have also influenced me in some sort of way.
These shoes are extremely comfortable, and they can be worn with any outfit. The nifty factor about them is that they come in all colors & patterns. They are also unisex < ---- AMAZING. My favorite collection is the vegan collection, because it’s miscellaneous and is created for those who DARE to be different.
I believe everyone should own a pair of TOMS shoes in their closet, they can be ordered online at www.toms.com. The prices range from $40-$70, which is not expensive because you are also buying a pair of shoes for a kid somewhere in the world who needs them. I always have a sense of satisfaction when I wear my TOMS, and I guarantee you will also.
The LEGENDARY Alexander McQueen
One of fashion’s top designer’s, Alexander McQueen, held the golden key to a door in which not too many designers opened; into a fashionista world embraced by the rapid metamorphic medium of design inspired in the ascent of technology. McQueen withheld a unique trait composed partly of a mind-boggling talent in technical skill, and a prodigious imagination that very few designers’ ever incorporated.
Thanks to the brilliant workings of McQueen’s Spring/Summer collection, women have the chance to experience the designer’s top-selling collection. This includes watery color print, aquatic/reptilian prints, and flowery romantic ruffles that appear to be the “fresh look” for this spring.
McQueen collaborated with music artist Lady gaga who used his designs in her premiere of her latest single, “Bad Romance.” She stated, “I love him more than any other designer… for his animalistic and feminine quality of his collection.”
This was a man who dominated the world of fashion. Alexander McQueen’s unexpected demise at the peak of utter creativity and influence still lights the artistic design spectrum he never failed to leave dim.
O - My inspirations come from life itself. We live in a world in which people follow and focus on new trends. That’s enough inspiration for me. I'm just trying to be myself in all aspects of my lifestyle and knowing that I can bring something new to that extent excites me each and everyday
A - What is your dream occupation?
O -My dream occupation is to become designer. But to me designing is more than just clothes or accessories. Designing is art...its life...its music...its at a whole...when people buy what I make...I want them to buy a sort of lifestyle not just clothes. I feel through clothing you express so much more of what the naked eye actually sees and I want to incorporate that vision into anybody who is a part of what I create.
O - My goals in life are to take over the world. POINT BLANK! Whether it is fashion or business, I have this one specific task and that is to takeover the world by storm, but I must remember to always help others no matter what situation i am currently in. I always talk about being approachable and being able to relate to anybody I come in contact with.I believe that’s the most essential part of being human…Well isn’t it?
A - How would you explain your personal style?
O -My personal style is really just me being me. From tanks to bow-ties, I think that style is another word for being versatile and really that’s what its all about. Being able to dress up one way and switch it up the next is really important to me. My style portrays the way I think and how im feeling. I also believe that accessories really make your outfit. Whether it be a pin or a Patch..I LOVE ACCESSORIES
A - Who are your favorite designers now?
My Favorite designers right now would have to be Jeremy Scott ,Karl Lagerfeld and Ralph Lauren. Without a DOUBT!. I mean for the time being haha
A- What motivates you?
O -Many things motivate me. From my mother raising four kids by herself to the love and passion I have for this field. But the one thing that keeps me going everyday is the fact that I want to show the world IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING and through God all things are made possible.
