Milwaukee Fashion Week 2017

Let me provide a brief backdrop before I talk about the fashion show itself. It’s safe to say Milwaukee is not known as the fashion capital of the world (despite this bold claim in my Instagram bio). However, despite Milwaukee’s lackluster fashion scene, there are a host of enthusiasts uplifting the city of Milwaukee into a realm where Milwaukee and fashion can become somewhat synonymous. Obviously one person can’t change the entire landscape, but a … Read MoreMilwaukee Fashion Week 2017

How to Wear Cropped Pants

Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to reach 88 degrees, despite the fact that last year around this time it was about 60 degrees.

Stylin’ & Profilin’: Kire Dennis aka “Intellect”

I never thought someone would ask me to style them for any occasion, let alone their birthday.

Summerfest Fashion of 2017’s Fest Showcases Milwaukee’s Style

Back at the beginning of July, Ken Bustos (@benkustos on IG) and myself decided to the capture the Summerfest fashion via walking around, and consequently asking people if they wanted to be photographed. This seems very stalker-ish and we were FULLY aware of that during our time at Summerfest 2017.
