Berny Martin : Founder of Midwest 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

Polyvore is Gone……what happened?

If you haven’t found out before this post, I have some bad news. On Thursday, Polyvore was ‘acquired’ by the Canadian-based company SSense. While the company SSense is a fashion retailer, it seems that not only did they ‘acquire’ Polyvore’s .COM platform, but their Facebook and other social media accounts. No….no announcement was made prior to the transaction to its followers, no email was sent out to the boutiques, nothing.¬† Polyvore, the community-based website was initially parented by Yahoo, Inc, then Oath, Inc who then gave up ownership to SSense who has, apparently, dissolved Polyvore completely. As far as the data, links, and other uploads associated with the website….they no longer exist. Follow What’s Your Chic as we keep you updated on this developing story. ¬†

New Orleans Fashion Week 2018 – NOLA Couture

¬† ¬† ¬†Prior to going to my first Fashion Week event in New Orleans, I had a small hint of anxiety. Its almost like going to a new school on the other side of town. The surroundings are foreign, you find yourself a bit lost and unsure. But then……you see something that’s familiar….like the kid from your old school that transferred just like you did. Now the moment is erased of unease and has been replaced with a sense of propinquity. ¬† ¬† ¬†That’s how I felt, walking into Fashion Week alone, not knowing anyone and trying to find my footing. As I watched the runway show and took photos, that sense of ease came when I heard the hostess announcing NOLA Couture. It was a company I knew of, pulling me into the moment, not only as a lonely, wondering blogger, but as a spectator, watching a place that I am familiar with be apart of the show. Speaking

NOFW 2018 – Clinton Whitney Downing

¬† ¬† ¬†To be a native of Louisiana and finally experience New Orleans Fashion Week was like a dream come true. Coming into Fashion Week, I was clearly intimated by the location of the venues, sharing rooms with celebrities, models, designers, socialites. Attending as a blogger and not a model put my mindset in a new level of stress to ‘perform’ if you will. Being in the right position, getting the right shot, and so many other things plagued my mind – that is until I got there. ¬† ¬† ¬†Despite it being the last night of New Orleans Fashion Week 2018, the venue was set and my destination was The Monastery. Although I am from Baton Rouge, knowing the location of the venue meant that it would not disappoint. One of the many designer’s collection that captivated me was Clinton Whitney Downing. Clinton is known for his raw eye for fashion as a designer and his forward-thinking as an
