Dictator of Taste

Leave a comment


So I apologize to everyone than I have not been updating my website as well as many other things. My excuses are:

I moved.

I went to convention with Alpha Kappa Psi.

I have not had time because,

I am starting a magazine.

I am trying to unpack.

I am renovating my friends closet.

Most likely you will see pictures from all these events in the coming days/weeks. So, what spurred me to start writing today? I was on my tumblr blog http://www.theroadtovogue.tumblr.com and I saw one of the people in my impending future magazine posted about the meeting we had on thursday and I am doing something like reposting. 🙂

“Thursday, i had a meeting with a couple of people from school at a vintage boutique. basically, we’re starting a magazine on GSU campus, mainly about fashion, and it’s gonna target all audiences. We had this meeting with the boutique owner (who by the way has great vintage clothes for 10-20 dollars!!) about a photoshoot we want to have for the first issue of the magazine. She agreed to us using her clothes for our magazine and we’re shooting it the 23rd of this month. I am the main photographer for this magazine and with the people on our team, i feel it’s going to go great. A lot of the editors and people apart of the magazine are in the model clubs of GSU and also design their own clothing and have hosted their own fashions shows (some that i have shot myself) and theyre great. Im happy to be working with them. Thursday was my first time talking with them and we all had a great time and meshed really well, which i was nervous about because im not the most high fashion person and thought they would have this feeling that i was inferior to them but it was really great. networked well and everything.

The style of the shoot is going to be vintage and is going to be located at the boutique which is pictured above. great environment for the vision i have for this shoot with the style of clothing and whatnot. The owner of the boutique is beautiful and is pretty much set in her career with this boutique. it was inspiring to see a beautiful young black women being successful in the creative field with her own shop. doing things on her own. and happy with where she’s at. she has reached her goal and money is well for her. def gave me inspiration and encouragement.

the environment of her boutique reminds me of Val from Single Ladies. it’s intimate and she gave us all a glass of wine lol

Overall it was a great meeting and I’m very excited for the shoot and the magazine. We want our first issue to come out around the first week of September and so far it’s looking really well. I got a glimpse of what i want my career to be like as far as being in a room with creative people and brainstorming ideas and creating visuals to come to life. Great stepping stone to my career

I LOVED HER POST! it made me feel just a little Wonderful that I kept on with the magazine. Also this post was by Shakya Cheeks you can find her at http://www.realityiswrong.tumblr.com. Shakya is literally one of the best photographers I know and I am excited that she is part of D.O.T. D.O.T. stands for Dictators of Taste and if you attend GSU you should see it at a stand near you in september. I AM SO EXCITED and I am leaning towards promising that I am back!

This blog is meant to follow the road of a non-writer into a writer, a fashion forward individual into a fashion icon, and a Christian student from Georgia State University into an editor and doctor in New York City. You will soon see the life of those around me and my thoughts about what goes on. Do you want to see what I think? You are on my blog so I'll assume you want to know what I think. I only have one rule if you do not like it i didn't ask nor do I care for your opinion.
