You just have to love social media. If it wasn’t for my Tumblr friends posting the photo on the far left, I wouldn’t have received a Twitter response from Asian-American designer, Huy Tran, of AmareSinh, thanking me for tweeting the photo of his work. I checked out his Twitter profile, clicked the link to AmareSinh’s official website, and fell in love with his Ready-To-Wear Women’s collection. The looks were hip, elegant, and immaculate. Originally from Philadelphia, Tran was educated at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York and worked in the fashion industry before starting his design company in 2009. “Amare” means love in Italian and “Sinh” means birth in Vietnamese. Together this special name commemorates the love, appreciation, and beauty of life. With the help and encouragement of family and friends, AmareSinh was launched in August 2010. Since then, the collection that have showcased tailored women’s blouses, trousers and dresses, have been featured in Philadephia Fashion Week; Cincinatti Fashion Week; and Shanghai Fashion Week. Furthermore, it has created a buzz amongst other fashion blogs across the internet. Tran has taken the time to chat with B&G Society about overcoming adversity to build his brand and the future of AmareSinh in the fashion world. Continue reading

Experienced models turned fashion photographers often know what they are doing when they are capturing great shots. They have a unique idea of how beauty and fashion is to be portrayed. Rhode Island Tasha Bleu is a model turned self-taught fashion photographer who knows how to work the lens on her camera. She focuses on contemporary street wear culture, high fashion editorials, and industry events. Her concepts are edgy and futuristic. The styling, specifically with avant-garde, is very chic and innovative. Bleu founded her own photography company, Treu Bleu Imagery in January 2010 and has already landed work on BET’s Rip the Runway, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and Africa Week. In addition, she worked with brands around the world that includes Kayobi Clothing UK, MYOB Japan, Stevie Boi Eyewear, David David, Boy Meets Girl USA, and more. Her work has appeared in fashion on/offline magazines that includes Elle, Bleu, Hypebeast and Convention. Bleu’s photos take you into another century. You are deeply in a trance by the photo concepts that will leave you wanting an encore. As her motto goes, “to thine own self be treu”.
Actress and Plus-Size SuperModel Mia Amber Davis sadly departed from the Fashion World May 11, 2011. I remember seeing her for the first time on the reality show Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and in person at NJ designer Douglas Says fashion show in 2008. I dubbed Mia Amber “The Naomi Campbell of Plus Size Modeling”. She was a force to be reckoned with upon the runway and her photos rock the bells in editorials and advertisement campaigns. Mia Amber was the voice for all plus-size women and encouraged them to be happy with the beauty the creator has given them and hold their confidence to a higher degree.
Our hearts and condolences goes out to the family of Mia Amber Davis.
A Lyric For Mia
The angelic face needs no make-up
The presence of a smile brings warmth
The body fills the room with light
Curves turn heads from left to right
Bringing a shock treatment to the one’s hearts
Fashion opens eyes
Style brings memories
Personality makes no one forget
The concret is the runway
Being stepped upon with a heel of beauty
Scents leaving a trail of trance
Leading the followers into sensuality
Now as it time to go home
We will ever get the same presence again
But what we do appreciate…is the one we did have
