👘Preserving Japanese culture tonight in NYC. A rare performance with Kikuno who is active as a Geisha (Geiko) at Hanamachi/Geisha District in Nara prefecture where called Ganrinin, also an organizer of "HANAAKARI", the event that audiences can enjoy Japanese traditional music and performing arts. When I started this event, it had been held with a small number of Geiko and Maiko. Nowadays, it became the only event in the world that participated by many Geiko and Maiko from all over Japan. 🇯🇵 The art should be alive forever. We took away the wall of each Hanamachi district and founded "HANAAKARI" in order to make further efforts to inform succession of traditions, traditional Japanese culture, and also about Geiko/Maiko correctly. While keeping close coordination with colleagues of all over Japan, this project is aimed at disseminating the succession of traditional Japanese culture to the world, as well as the training and development of successors. Moreover, contributing to encourage the whole country of Japan. Visit: Debtou-Japan.com/orchestra/html to support this project. #geisha #hanaakariorchestra #japan #geiko #meiko #culture #art #tradition #music #Hanamachi #dentou

The #HoodDandy Collection by @katiusciaa at #MPAwards17 menswear show. Photos Credit: Yendie Lynch
The #HoodDandy Collection was created by Katiuscia Gregoire, a designer and visual artist whose work examines themes such as gendered roles in society. She challenges representation of gender, sexuality and design manifestations through her creations. She aims to provide provocative counters to stereotypical representations and physical objectifications of such identities.

Gregoire utilizes design, specifically through various textile development and explorations, to represent the unrepresented. Using bold textile motifs and knitwear, she aims to create for a multi-faceted subject for who the constraints of social and gendered expectations are circumvented. The fashion mark created by Katiuscia aids in achieving a passage of awareness and being the path to a more socially-conscious worldview. She holds a BFA in Fashion Design as a Graduate of Parsons School of Design.

The @NextLevelWorldFashion Collection at #MPAwards17 menswear show. Photos Credit: Yendie Lynch
The 2017 Master Pioneer Award menswear show opened with the Next Level World Collection. The collection demonstrates the merger of high fashion with creative natural hair styles in black males. Extending back to prehistoric era we have evidence that hair is the most essential and original fashion statement we humans possess. Even before we had the ability to assemble animal hides into clothing, primitive people ornamented their hair.
The integration of hair styles with elegant clothing has been a trend for the past 3000 years. This is especially true for the African continent, where the inhabitants cultivated hairstyles extending 100,000 years back. The emergence of personal style often included the use of natural hair. Nevertheless in the modern era, we, as proud black people, have spent far too long hiding behind our unnatural hair. Like the chains originally clasped to our feet, our straightened, and ironed hair has become the shackles to our beauty and our culture, preventing us from showing our true identity.
“In this show, we want to look back in time, and bring forward the creative strength of our ancestors to fabricate new and bold looks,” says designer Derrick Grant. “We adopted the ancient powerful styles from Egypt and Ethiopia to create bold statements that reach back to this primordial strength from the past. In addition to obtaining our fashion inspiration from our African heritage. Read MORE on TrueFashionistaNow.com

🙏🏽Thanks To Everyone!
My fresh white orchid I'm wearing, is a homage to my mom(from Guyana), a symbolism of beauty & style. It's also a homage to #BillieHoliday(iconic great African American Jazz singer from #Harlem, where I also live). It's also a reference to #YvesSaintLaurent & #Halston, two of my favorite iconic designers. #MPAwards17
Thank you to @mrmikestreet @_istm (my show manager) @katiusciaa (Designer Hood Dandy), @nextlevelworldfashion @yemikosibah @taj_nicole @joyfennellmakeup @rasasalon @freakymrvegas @trevortendaji_ @musewithme @antoriginates @djones_ix @garnesthaakidd_ @jecoriel - I couldn't have done it without you.

My vision is to reflect the social motivators that are directing modern fashion, driven by a generation of young black men & women who RESIST conformity and DEFY identity politics in the face of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. They project an image of PRIDE and CONFIDENCE in who they are becoming and the recognition of the influence they have on the global culture, starting with their HAIR. "It is important for me to pay it forward by giving back to the community. “I LOVE fashion and the platform for creativity, and this is my way of giving back while bringing awareness of the importance of African American’s cultural contribution to fashion & the arts.”
To anyone wanting to be a part of this or any industry, remember to work VERY HARD, continue to DREAM BIG and don't give up because you can do it. THANK YOU!
