Sewing Seeds for a Flyer Future

Published

on

As if their own creativity alone wasn’t enough; Qween Bay and LorenzoTheGawd collaborate on a true one-of-a-kind look. As times progress and styles evolve, fashion seems to get more elaborate and unique. In an age where Hip-Hop Culture has become so deeply intertwined with the fashion industry and social media as a whole; a new wave of creative talent has captivated the forefront of modern streetwear.

With the Fashion World branching out further than ever, complete with healthy competition, all different types of creatives are establishing themselves within the fashion industry. For the past decade, LorenzoTheGawd, Musician, Designer, and Creative Director of BlackSheepForever, has fully immersed himself into the niche crux where fashion and hip hop coexist, creating irreplicable designs on wearable artwork.

“I started Making Music when I was like 12 or 13. Around the same time, I started sewing and making clothes, wallets, trinkets, shirts, etc. I always loved to create and display things. My parents encouraged me to keep doing it, and at this point, I’m a fully immersed Musician and Graphic Designer. It means a lot when people see your potential and believe in you enough to support your pursuit. Nowadays I make clothes and music with some of the coolest and most talented people.”

LorenzoTheGawd (May 2022)

“I’m a very passionate person, so there are a lot of things I have my hand in. So you have to be able to really find your flow because all of it needs watering”

Qween Bay, known for her ability to capture the essence of emotion through her photographs; illustrates a deep knowledge and appreciation of her craft by creating scenes and images that express her overall creativity as an artist. A collaboration between two artists with such a unique vision of the world, as one may predict, has proven to be quite remarkable.

The concept they created for their streetwear look proved to be just as perfect as its execution as they unveiled their black-denim, distressed, streetwear, knee-high, stilettos paired with a likened jacket complete with a beautifully raw picture of Bailey emerging from the back.

What Lorenzo and Bailey (Qween Bay) gain by working together is not only the impact two motivated creatives gain by working in unison, but the ability to truly conceptualize a look and create it into a tailored look from idea to execution. This balance truly makes a drastic difference to those who juggle many different art forms such as these two.

“I’m a very passionate person, so there are a lot of things I have my hand in. So you have to be able to really find your flow because all of it needs watering”

Qween Bay (ADITL S2 E2)

With the hunger for unique fashion impeding the world via social media, the two have managed to turn a lot of heads, create a demand, and display amazing work for themselves and other artists/creatives.

The two have only started working together in the recent months following the New Yorker’s self-proclaimed ‘Great Escape’ from the east coast. With such similar styles and creative visions, it’s no wonder that Lorenzo and his LA-native counterpart, Qween Bay, would eventually begin to work together on their ideas.

Lorenzo’s output is multifaceted. In conjunction with creating music, artwork, and merchandise for his own brands and working in collaboration with See12Productions and One World Peace co, Lorenzo has been establishing something very special with custom 1-of-1 pieces. “Sometimes taking upwards of 40-50 hours on one piece,” these amazing and intricate designs are hand-sewn into a true masterpiece and do admittedly get a bit pricey.

“So precisely messy, so Peacefully Chaotic. These truly are one-of-one, and worth every penny.”

See12Productions (U Not Like Me co.)

Bailey is not ‘just’ a model. In addition to being her own stylist, creative director, and [formally educated] personal trainer; she is a dedicated mother of 3, motivational speaker, humanitarian, and advocate for a variety of social justice constructs. Her background in photography, artwork, and fashion shines through her work and sets her apart from the competition she faces because her ability to transcend the physical barriers of what makes her art form so uniquely creative speaks volumes to all who view it.

Both Bailey and Lorenzo were asked what inspired them to pursue their dreams and they responded accordingly:

“What initially prompted me to get into modeling was the desire to make a very public declaration to myself that I was no longer ok with being invisible…

I want to be a heavyweight in this industry and to be able to use that weight and that affluence to be the change I want to see in this world, in order to amplify the voices of those who were like me; in society’s blind spot…

When it comes to branding, I want people to be awe-inspired by my body of work as much as by my story. I want them to look at my work and not be able to think of anyone else but me who could’ve done it want to be one-of-one, not one in a million, not even one of a kind. I want them to look at my work and say “I knew this was Qween Bay!” because it couldn’t possibly be anyone else.”

Qween Bay (May 2022)

“I’ve always been the type of person who creates everything themselves and fully puts their own essence on everything that is theirs. Aside from the music and artwork, I started sewing stuff when I was in middle school, and I’ve only progressed from there. When I really got into the game I painted and sewed on a lot of shoes, and then I started working a lot more with sweaters, hoodies, and eventually jeans. Now I truly just create works of art on clothing the same way I would if I were painting a picture, graphic, or writing music. It’s all just me, from the soul. It’s my inspiration in a tangible, viewable, or audible form.”

LorenzoTheGawd, May 2022

As far as what is to come; a large-scale merch drop from LorenzotheGawd’s Brand BlackSheepForever is imminent. Qween Bay and Lorenzo will be collaborating in the fall on a clothing project for her upcoming fashion events. Stay tuned for exclusive updates and access to upcoming projects. For any further inquiries, Bailey can be found on Instagram @TheQweenBayOfficial. Lorenzo’s work can be seen on his website: LorenzoTheGawd.com, and all his music or media content can be found by searching: LorenzoTheGawd anywhere.

Valentino Magra: An Outstanding Photographer & Web Developer

Published

on

It is a pleasure to write about someone from a very different perspective and point of view. Valentino Magra is truly one of the most versatile and successful characters. It is not uncommon for people to want to be photographer or web developer. Digital photography is not only financially rewarding, but also provides many other benefits for individuals; many find the profession exciting and enjoy the variety of experiences, while getting to know new peoples, cultures and countries, and to be part of this fascinating industry.

Being a professional photographer takes not only a lot of skill, but also a lot of luck. It is not our intention to crush your dreams, but you should know the reality of the situation before investing a significant amount of time and money. There have been a lot of studies about the balance between luck and skill when it comes to becoming a photographer or web developer or streamer, or a star, or a musician, or a YouTuber. I absolutely affirm that Valentino Magra is really one of the most outstanding and successful people I ever met.

Valentino Magra: Hi, guys. I am very excited to visit with you today. Professionally, I am a Digital Photographer and Web Developer from Italy. I was born in Germany from Hungarian mother and Sicilian father and I’m living in Sicily (Italy) since I was a child. I attended engineering university but on the other hand, I have always had a deep passion for photography and eye-catching image arts too. I’m a pro photographer for more than 7 years and a web designer with experience in WordPress installations and stylish theme setups and customizations. My hobbies include arts but also sports, rock climbing, paddle-boarding, swimming, snow skiing, hiking and biking. I am Cheerful, Creative and Compassionate.

My favorite part is meeting new, creative people. Hearing others’ stories and how they got to that point in their career is one of the things I enjoy about working at different people and locations. It’s not fun having to make sure my body is camera-ready all the time. It’s a great privilege to have a career that allows me such freedom.

I always want to get exactly what the client envisions so I do my best to get the best shots so everyone is happy.

I also love my role as a Web Developer and CEO and founder of WiZORDER webapp. I have the honor of standing beside some of the best in providing digital menu for your Restaurant or Bar.

I think it is a huge honor and a big responsibility. I want to be a positive Digital Photographer and Web Developer without presenting a fake social media persona. I am a very happy person, but we all have our days. The more followers I gain, the greater the responsibility to be genuine becomes.

Aliah Sheffield and the Re-launch Of The Classic Sound Gems Record Label

Published

Sound Gems

The music industry has seen an impressive comeback over the past couple of years, but that’s little consolation for artists who continue to struggle to find ways to make money in a post-album world. There are many bright spots like Sound Gems for new and smaller artists in today’s music climate, but the landscape surrounding the music industry remains as volatile as ever.

With so much uncertainty accompanying the serious music career today, one thing that has managed not to change much is the record label’s sacred status. Many artists have it in their minds that all their musical and financial problems could be solved if they could be picked up by a record company. Signing to a record label is the right decision for them.

If you’re an aspiring musician without a contract, you’re probably looking forward to a label signing you up so you can start your career off on the right foot.

A record label that is run by a true music lover will survive forever. Aliah Sheffield and the relaunch of the Classic Sound Gems Record Label Keith Pro Review 7 years ago. Sound Gems is back with new artists to bring to the table. Among the new additions to the label are Davante Devaughn, Beth Ann Wyn, Marigold Rose, Foster CK, Kaui, Vivilore Jordan, and Jeffrey Bryan. There are also a few oldies by William Devaughn on Sound Gems (including some unreleased tracks), singing Crystal Motion, Ebb Tide, and the Charmetts.

Aliah Sheffield, the first real new signing for the label, is an extremely talented artist. She was born in Newark, New Jersey, but grew up in the deep south of Savannah, Georgia. She was influenced by legends such as Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin from a young age, molding her into the singer she is today. As a student at Berklee College of Music, she experimented with fusing genres, particularly soul and R&B, to develop her own distinctive style.

The company may take a break from signing new artists and focus on reissues at times, but staying at the center of the music business is too strong. Back in the day, Sound Gems Records was a famous label in the Philadelphia soul/r&b world.

According to Sheffield. “I feel really blessed to be part of a label that I feel so connected to.” Aliah Sheffield’s first release on Sound Gems Records is “Where I’m At (Is in Love with you),” which was actually released yesterday. Even the most stoic man will bop his head to this song, as it is full of that old soul 70’s vibe with a modern twist. Aliah’s smooth delivery and controlled power put her voice in the spotlight. It builds all through and really lets loose as the song heads to its climax. This is a great start and the sound gems expect many great things to come from Aliah Sheffield and the relaunch of The Sound Gems label.
