Branding, Orlando aLive, Photo Shoot, Sewing & Painting! Weekly Update!

22 Nov

Ok so I didn’t have time to update last week, so this is for the last two weeks…and few days! : ) Let’s see where to begin…

So is there anyone who does not feel like time is absolutely flying? Monday was the start of a new term at school for me. The last term was so much fun! It was all about team building and communication. This term is about business branding, which I’m really excited about since I am in the middle of a total brand reformation. I’m really narrowing down my focus of the brand. I have always done my pieces with inspiration from vintage but with a modern, futuristic twist. But I never really promoted the brand as neo-vintage or retro-futurism… which it totally is. I think I just get very caught up in the design part of things and let the business side sort of just meander along behind the clothes. That’s why I’m so grateful to be at Full Sail University right now. I feel like I have to relearn things that I already know, and things that my husband has been telling me for years, and just be more organized about how I put things into practice. So I renamed my etsy shop Neo Vintage Clothing to make it easier for people to find me. www.etsy.com/shop/neovintageclothing

I also went with a few friends to the Orlando aLive event downtown at The Social, presented by Culture Climax last Monday. It was pretty dope since they had all my favorite things; fashion, art and hip hop. There was a great band there, Will Work For Good Music (www.willworkforgoodmusic.com). And the host Prote-J (Twitter:@Prote-J) was awesome. And of course, my favorite Orlando female rapper MyVerse (https://www.facebook.com/MYVERSE). There was also a young man there who performed- singing while playing his acoustic guitar. I cannot for the life of me remember his name, but I want to shout him out so bad… so if anyone knows who I’m talking about, leave it in a comment for me!!

The studio he rented was near downtown Orlando. We worked with Christelsie Johnson- MUA and Lori Livingston- model. What an amazing team! Here are a few photos from the shoot!
