So don't miss VH1 STORY TELLERS this Sat. Feb 28, 2009 at 9pm (check your local listing). Kanye West will be your the host for the evening...So please tune in for Martin Louie The King Jr. ... address him as such (but they'll repeat it a million times so you'll catch it)... From the look of the commercial previews, the presentation looks awesome.

Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein's Mens Collection showed an amazing presentation this past Fashion Week. I didn't get to view the collection in person, but thank God for style.com. I really appreciated his forward thinking, which he put alot of construction into the coats as well as the trousers he showed on the runway. I was drawn to the Fall 09 take on the what New Yorkers would call the bubble coat for the winter, but Italo's take was these hard edge TRON coats. The sci-fi/futuristic silhouette this Fall/Winter, which I would like to have in my wardrobe for winter. It's DOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPPE and I can't wait to see it in person and maybe use it editorially.

Gerlan Marcel presentation was one show I would have liked to view...I met Gerlan at the Cassette Playa X Nike Party and she was pretty awesome. Gerlan is behind prints for the likes of Jeremy Scott and others over at PRINT PLEASE. Her debut is so her style, which is dope when a designer designs for themselves. Her website is up and take a look at her presentation for Fashion Week Gerlan Jeans.

A Gent that is...he knows what the words apprentice, advance, and swagger means. Because Mr. Bentley embodies all of those things. He's worked hard for it since the beginning of his ambition...he was insider of this so called "industry" before some of the so called insiders. He just didn't know it yet or maybe he did because if he didn't he would have become a Biologist I guess (Biology was his major in Morehouse College). From a Ralph Lauren Salesman at the NYC Mansion, Apprenticeship with Fashion Designer Alan Flusser, Various posts within restaurant business, and being a Personal Assistant to Diddy. Mr. Bentley seems to have rose to every occasion. He is Mr. Cool as he would state "Cool is one of the most powerful things in the world. I want to change cool. I want to make etiquette cool. I want to make faith cool. I want to make education cool." And with his second season of "From G's to Gents" he seems to be well on his way with changing cool. I appreciate Mr.Bentley he is very much so inspiration to many and it's cool to have someone like him doing cool things... A true Cool Outrageous Lover Of Uniquely Raw Style C.O.L.O.U.R.S
"If you want to get into fashion, specifically model management, you must be willing to learn how to do every single thing. Remember one word: apprentice. Embrace that word, and you will be the best and brightest. You want to work for someone else in the beginning until you're good enough to work with people. Learn to do the simple things well, like send invitations, answer calls, and make copies. Everyone seems to be looking to get to the top fast. They want to be stars, and they want to be shiny. But only the person who is simply willing to work hard and make a difference will reach the top."
