Every single color of these pants is stunning. Easy to match with and can go from day to night.
Yes, I know some of you were wondering if I was going to say something about this. Okay, when I heard about the potential sale of Versace to Michael Kors a couple of days ago, I was in the airport trying to catch my flight. When I saw the tweets and then the articles this morning, I nearly choked on my breakfast. What was even more interesting were the reactions to these turn of events.
While most of us were hit with shock, awe, and excitement, I can truly say that Michael Kors has been on an aggressive climb in the world of fashion and business. So let’s be honest here: if Michael Kors was not considered a ‘giant’ in the fashion industry in the past, they are now. Not only with its recent acquiring of Versace, but a series of strategically-placed events. What some are forgetting is that this is not the first time in which Michael Kors has made a major investment within the fashion industry. Back in 2017, Michael Kors bought Jimmy Choo for an estimated £896 million ($1.1 billion). Now, while still expanding with stores all over the world, Michael Kors announced a deal to by the fashion house of Versace for an estimated $2.1 billion and then change the name of MKH Limited to Capri to couple with the expansion of its empire.
While this is a major reign of accomplishments for the American designer and his empire, some Versace fans were not too happy about the merg. When the news hit Twitter, there were a swarm of mixed feelings:
With the reading of Twitter, it seems fans are concerned with the potential downplay of the empire that is Versace, but I don’t see it happening. Check out Versace’s most recent collection at Milan Fashion Week
Throughout my travels in an unbiased quest to bring to my audience fashion and the unique designers behind them, my recent travels took me into the city of Chicago, affectionately known as the ‘Heart of America’. My destination in the Windy City? Midwest Fashion Week of course, which was founded and guided by Mr. Berny Martin.
As a fan of Mr. Martin’s work, I have followed Midwest Fashion Week over the years as they have acquired numerous mentions in notable magazines such as IndyStar.com (USA Today), ELLE Men, and Ok! Magazine. Midwest Fashion Week not only brings forth talent and visions via the runway, but also raises money for charities and non-profit organizations.
Mr. Martin is no ordinary Haitian-born gentleman with just ‘good taste’, but an international fashion revolutionary in his own right. Notably a graduate of Purdue University, Berny Martin is also the Founder and CEO of Catou Wear, which serves on leaps and bounds beyond simply ‘made’ fashion designs.
Martin’s Catou Wear brings on a personalization of tailoring, sophistication, elegance and flare. His love and passion for customizing designs to compliment the client’s personality proves true, even in his own personal attire. A gentleman indeed and a lover of the craft, Berny Martin has been bringing stunning artistry to the runway all over the world. I personally came into contact with Catou Wear via Couture Fashion Week in 2015, Times Square, New York.
As I bring to you the designers of MidWest Fashion Week, please know that hard work, dedication and love of the art assisted Mr. Berny Martin and his team in making this magic come to life.
Mardi Gras is over ☹️☹️☹️ but I had a good time!!!!! Although I live about an hour away, going to The Big Easy is always an exciting trip for me. Here’s a picture I took at the 2018 Zulu BigShot ball at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans
I want to personally thank the staff at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans for their professionalism. I was merely a guest for an event and was given optimum treatment.
Hey you Cuties!!!!

For those of us who are familiar with the flood of 2016, you know that unpredictable storm brought grief and devastation to southeast Louisiana at what we predicted to be the end of hurricane season. Also known as the ‘100-year rain event”, this rainstorm moved in as a hurricane without the wind and without a warning. At the peak, close to 20% of businesses in the state of Louisiana were affected by the storm, while over 6,000 businesses experienced physical flooding throughout East Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, and other surrounding parishes. While the cleanup and the federal assistance has dragged out and stress the locals to this day, what is remarkable is the way in which the people of south Louisiana have managed to stay optimistic and true to tradition.
With the flood of 2016 also came another storm: presidential election season. When the annual SpanishTown parade came around in the city of Baton Rouge, came a new theme of ‘Come Hell or High Water’. Although we have recently lost one of the founding fathers Charles ‘Fish’ Fisher, he didn’t miss the fun of the response his beloved SpanishTown had to say on the 2016 flood and presidential election.
While SpanishTown parade is known for its quirky themes and pink flamingos that pepper the neighborhood in downtown Baton Rouge, its tradition stands as being an unbridled voice of the people back then, now, and in years to come.
In memory of Charles ‘Fish’ Fisher
