DAN KEYS SOPHOMORE EFFORTS...







As I was emailing my homey over at O.M.O Writes Samantha Smikle I wanted to leave her a few words before I laid to rest. She hit me right back with feed back, I was amazed because Twitter usually keeps up the night Al's. But any way she wasn't sure if that was Dan Keys aka Young Love in the Look Book for Sophomore. So I clicked the link and there it goes Dan Keys. I was a supporter of his first album "TOO YOUNG TO FIGHT" because of the electro song "Find Away To Dance" it was a cool record. Now Dan has been modeling here and there I seen him in some editorial pieces and now the Sophomore look book, which he is on his sophomore album "One Of Us"...Sooo Sam it is YOUNG LOVE and Thanks for the feed back. Yo check out Young Love previous video directed by Terry Richardson cool stuff...

Oooo the HAUTE HOT HOTTIE model in the Sophomore look book is Rachel Ballinger

A Day In The Life Of Ryann...


Raina Blyer Designer of Ryann

Sourcing Trim for a design piece...

Picking up Patterns...

Work station one of many...

Multi-tasking...

Pleating and Drapping I believe...it was a just a piece of fabric hrs. ago, now it has sleeves...

Work in progress, but it was something from nothing...just Genius!!!

Hope you guys enjoy the pics of the day in the life of Raina Blyer who is the designer of Ryann. How it came about was I received a happy new year text message from Raina asking how I was and what I was up to...a couple of back and forth text messages turned into two days of chilling and asking questions about Ryann as a designer label, the inspiration behind it, and the work that goes into being a fashion forward as well as globally conscious designer collection. As you may know or not Ryann is made from carefully selected sustainable fabrics. Each piece is sewn here in NYC which the printing as well as packaging uses recycled and biodegradeable materials. It's amazing that something so cool and chic can be so fashion forward with no guilt. Raina is just like her pieces cool, smart, sexy, forward, simple, and chic. Ryann has something for all women to incorporate in their wardrobes. It's most definitely for the NYC lady who wants and likes simple structured little details as well as comfortable fashion pieces.
