a special poem for Nykia & Dame by Sunil P. Narayan

MAMi 8

Live A white dove soars through the Sky looking for his daughter Who lost her way when Dawn embraced the world As the Sun illuminated a boundless dark forest, he grew ever more anxious No more darkness, no more fear For you, his heart will always beat near On a boulder she lay Praying for life to stop slipping away Her clawed body bled onto the ground Before a father frozen by terror No more darkness, no more fear For you, his heart will always beat near Fate dragged his child through the dirt instead of him! ἀ e Sun wept in dismay One cannot endure such a despairing sight! To save her, he offered a trade

No more darkness, no more fear For you, his heart will always beat near Her father’s flesh turned into a shimmering river to nourish the decayed land Timeless and selfless, His love is immeasurable It exists so she can live her life the way it was destined to be No more darkness, no more fear For you, his heart will always beat near A year after his sacrifice She arrives with her husband To drink from the purest light in the world Her father’s heart sustaining them forever No more darkness, no more fear For you and him, his heart will always beat near

Felicia Mosley’s Fashion In The City Invades Atlanta by Abesi Manyando

Felicia Mosley’s Fashion in the City invaded Atlanta with

an explosion of opulence and creative artistry. Fashion lovers were overjoyed at the inclusion of Fashion in the City in Atlanta International Fashion Week. Mosley’s national brand made an impression in Atl. Fashion in the City’s mission has been to provide a platform for local talented designers, to showcase their artistry and collections while providing St. Louis with an immeasurable and opulent event during the Fashion season. Not only did these efforts catapult STL local talents with much deserved exposure but they also provide opportunities for philanthropic growth as much of a percentage of the proceeds of FIC events were donated to Cardinal Glennon. Mosley decided to take her brand national by importing her models and designers into AIFW. Atlanta has become a mecca for entertainment and Mosley is making sure she gets a piece of the Georgia pie. Exclusive FIC galas bring together a very unique cluster of powerbrokers,

MAMi 16

professionals and tastemakers. Fashion in the City attracts a multi-cultural kaleidoscope of influential professionals with disposable income and buying power. Previous shows consisted of spectacular nights at the City Museum and Peabody Opera House. They brought unprecedented press exposure and notoriety to local designers. FIC has also promoted networking amongst doctors, healthcare providers, medical related companies, fashion industry professionals including educators, retail buyers, journalists, trendsetters and tastemakers and consumers. “I wanted FIC to be a part of AIFW because I am growing and my brand is going so I didn’t want to limit us to just being a regional brand. We elevated in one year and it was time to showcase on a national level! Atlanta was the perfect city and I’m happy with what we accomplished and pulled off. It wasn’t easy but I as Tim Gunn says on Project Runway..”Make it work.” I did. I am looking forward to doing shows in New York, Miami and L.A. Although FIC has received tremendous amount of success

in a short time we have to keep ELEVATING!” One on One Interview-by Aaron Robinson With a track record of success in the fashion industry, Fashion In the City’s business executive is making a tremendous name for herself all around the country. Looking forward to her next big fashion extravaganza, Mosley anticipates giving the audiences a much to remember show. Known for supporting children’s hospitals and bringing jobs to the community, she is a force to be reckoned with. Here is what she had to say about Fashion in the City. How did Fashion in the City originate? Fashion in the City originated from me realizing that St. Louis had great talented designers but the designers did not have a platform to catapult their talents. I wanted to expose the country to designers who go un-noticed despite being so impeccable in their artistry. I created fashion in the city to open up doors for up and coming designers that I know will go on to rule the runways of the world. I knew it would take tremendous marketing

and publicity to get to that level so I enlisted Public Relations Executive, Abesi Manyando of Abesi PR to elevate and develop fashion in the city into becoming a household brand. My vision was to begin in St. Louis and travel to different cities. In conjunction with that, I wanted to give back. I had to find a way to give back to charity. That’s how it really originated. We had amazing designers and models, and gave them four months of extensive training. The end result is a show filled with creativity, beauty and memorable moments. Who are some of the individuals that inspired you? I’ve always been inspired by Alexander McQueen. So it just varies. Also, I’m inspired by shoe designer Giuliana. So many people bring different elements to the fashion industry. I like to create my own things. I’m not into trends, but am definitely inspired by many in the fashion industry. What do you want people to remember after attending one of your shows?

I want people to remember that what we say we are going to give them is what they get! I don’t want people to feel like they know what to expect. I want them to leave with an experience that they weren’t expecting. They really need to know that they are going to get exactly what they want. I want individuals to leave feeling inspired and also knowing that something on that runway is something that they could have worn or their child, grandchild or mother. What’s the key to your success? God! That has to be the key. You know how things happen in your life that you have no explanation for. So you have to look at the higher power. I’m the sole owner of the company. So, everything that happened had to be through God blessing me.

been that way, you know when someone said it was something that I couldn’t do…I strived to do just that. My background is accounting, which showed me how to stretch a budget It’s overwhelming at times, but other than that, it’s about treating it as it’s your job. You have to get up early in the morning and make sure everything is done. What do you love most about your career? That it’s helping other people. When I’m doing interviews I tend to forget that it’s about me. I’m always inspired by seeing that model get a call back from a mainstream designer. It’s more of a philanthropist approach, being able to give back. That’ the most reward I can give.

How did you develop your skills in event planning and management? I’m a very organized person… almost too much sometimes. I’m a native of St. Louis, but I was raised in California. I’ve always

Celebrity Style Jennifer Irene Gonzalez “Fried Rice and Frijoles” photos and story by Viktorija Pashuta Makeup: Dana Delaney Hair Stylist: Traci Garrett Wardrobe Stylist: Jazmin Whitley

Internationally published model Jennifer Irene Gonzalez (JGmodeltalent) was born and raised in Redondo Beach, California. She is a beautiful exotic mix of Taiwanese and Spanish, or “fried rice and frijoles” as she calls it. She was the title holder for MISS TAIWAN USA 2010 and placed top 5 in the Miss Asia USA competition. Jennifer’s road to success began at the young age of 5 in which she pursued her gifted talents of singing, dancing, acting and modeling through pageantry and performing in theater arts. At 21 years old, She became a signed artist with UPSCALE records in Newport Beach and received a record distribution deal with SONY BMG. Since then she has established an extensive resume consisting of acting, runway, print, commercial, promotional modeling, singing and dancing performances. She is excited to continue to add to the list! Standing at 5’8” size 0-2 and rocking an awesome figure of 34D-25-35, it’s not surprising that Jennifer has earned a successful career as such a high demand model. She was recently featured on Good Day LA and Telemundo Tu Estillo show. Her most recent commercial with KYOSHO, RC CARS, and DARRYL MCDANIELS of RUN DMC was just released in Jan 2012. Jennifer is currently on tour as the official spokesmodel of OUTER EDGE INC and the dozens of products they just launched such as Koma Unwind, Lazy pops, Swing aphrodisiac spray, NRG, and lifesource body building supplement. You can currently find her billboards and advertisements across the US and in the UK. Jennifer is featured in DOZENS of magazines and has placed the cover of over 7 magazines in 2011/2012 alone (BEER MAGAZINE COVER 2011, WHEELS AND HEELS MAGAZINE COVER Jan 2012, FHM SLOVANIJA MAGAZINE COVER MARCH 2012 with Tera Patrick and Italia Kash, SKINNIE MAGAZINE COVER MARCH 2012 with singer/rap star MICKEY AVALON, NITEGUIDE MAGAZINE COVER May 2012, RADIKAL MAGAZINE COVER AUGUST 2012, PERFORMANCE AUTO AND SOUND MAGAZINE COVER (TBA), and more covers on the way TBA).

Jennifer is an extremely motivated entrepreneur whose career is an intricate part of her lifestyle. She is painfully independent and responsible to a fault. She lives by the mantra: “Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like nobody’s watching.”

Toccara Hamilton In a male dominant field, Tocarra Hamilton is holding her own. She hasn’t waited for anyone to give her anything, she has made her own way. The name Tocarra Hamilton may not immediately strike you but if you’re familiar with the lyrics of Usher’s song, “Hey, Hey, Hey Daddy” or if you’re into Latin Dance Music and a lover of Latin Rapper Pitbull, then you’ve definitely heard her voice. A Native Milwaukeean that calls Atlanta her home, Singer/Songwriter Tocarra Hamilton can show even some of our big artist how to build a strong foundation. She’s not just a pretty face, in addition to creating and performing great music, she’s a business woman who models, represents brands like the exclusive hair line, Lovely Queen Hair, is designing a sportswear line with a well-known designer (shhh we can’t tell you), serves on the board of the nonprofit Music4Hope, and did we forget to mention, she’s a single mother? “One of the most important jobs to me has been being a good mother”, Tocarra says. “A typical day for me may be writing music after my son goes to school in the morning, running to a meeting or the studio and rushing home to do homework and play video games with my son. I travel a lot so if I can’t take him with me, I leave him in good hands with my family”. Tocarra is not the typical female artist. Some would say that if they weren’t sure, they would think she was just one of the boys. Standing 4’11, Tocarra always stands her ground. She knows what she wants, and goes after it. The Who’s Who of Atlanta recognized Tocarra as a great entrepreneur and music artist along with greats in music like Ludacris and Kandi and she was recently nominated by the Georgia Music Awards for Best Female R&B. Tocarra also recently teamed up with Rapper and Star of Love & Hip-hop Atlanta, Lil Scrappy to co-write, “No Love”, Scrappy’s current single and musical selection that can be heard on the Love & Hip-hop Atlanta Show. The song is quickly gaining fans nationwide and can be seen on VH1, BET and MTV. It has also garnered over 2 million views on YouTube since it recent release. “My contribution to life is to be a good person, live my dreams to the fullest, prepare my son for his life and his future and to show women that there’s a way to win at this game(music) and it’s not on your back but it’s with your head!”

Lillian Jones Lillian Jones has a passion for children’s design. As a child, Jones was inspired by weekend shopping trips to the mall with her mother, and often wondered what it would be like to create the garments she saw in stores. With one fashionable grandmother and another who was a seamstress and hatmaker, Jones was exposed early on to fashion. A self-taught designer, Jones began creating garments in high school. Her first design came in the form of a jacket worn by a friend on a trip to Atlanta. Praise for the jacket gave her the confidence she needed to grow and continue creating more innovative designs.

In 2005, Jones launched her clothing line, L.A.H.A. Envisioning the “glamorous girl,” Jones began designing ready-towear garments for everyday girls who love the same glitz and glamour as the daughters of the hip-hop moguls. She describes her L.A.H.A clothing line as “fabulously charming and equally accessible.” Jones is often overheard saying, “If a little girl desires buttons, bows and bling, she should have them all.” Under her L.A.H.A. clothing line, Jones has designed garments for the children of some of the biggest and brightest names in the hip hop industry. Because of her unique ability to combine colors, textures and tones, Jones’s designs continue to be sought after across the country. Most recently, Jones landed a spot at the prestigious Los Angeles Fashion Week. Jones hopes to see her L.A.H.A designs on little girls all over the world and instill pride while inspiring them to be the best they can be.

Paige Helton photos by David Kilper

“Paige Helton, 16 and an aspiring model, lives in a very small town of Vienna (120 miles west of St. Louis)  in central Missouri.  Mainly a farming community, where everyone knows everyone, she can look out her home window and see the neighbor’s cows.  She lives with her parents and is the oldest sibling in her family, she has a younger brother and younger sister. While growing up, she played sports.  At first her favorite was basketball, but later and currently her favorite sport to play is softball.  During her sophomore year, her goal was to break the school’s stolen base record of 36.  She almost made it, only being one base short of beating it.  This year, her junior year, she will succeed in breaking the record!  Besides softball, she enjoys doing anything on the water: jetskiing, canoeing, boating and swimming.   She first mentioned wanting to model with she was 14, but had braces.  Her mother recommended waiting until afer her braces were off, then they would see what happens.  Several months later, she walked her first runway show in St. Louis.  After that, she auditioned to be in Fashion in the City’s “Roaring Twenties” show at the Peabody Opera House.  She was selected to walk for several of the designers.  A few other shows followed in St. Louis and then Paige recently participated in Atlanta’s International Fashion Week.     Paige is getting ready to start her junior year of high school.  She is currently working to find an agency for representation.  In college, she would like to study  criminal psychology.”

StLouisStyle Breanna Rae Johnson I love to dance and have danced on a competitive dance team since I was age five.Thru

my many years dancing it has taught me thru hard work and commitment, confidence is taught. I did my first modeling February of 2012 and knew I found another excitement I would enjoy. My other enjoyment for a girly girl maybe doesn’t fit , I love waterfowl hunting. I find it another challenge all it’s own and I enjoy the time spent with my Grampa. I have been shooting since the age of thirteen. When graduating I would like to go on to get my RN degree as I enjoy working with people and feel I have something to give to this area of work.

AutoStyle ἀ e Lexus LF-LC sports coupe concept debuting at the 2012 Detroit auto show is a sharp new show car with aggressive air intakes. ἀ e first two letters of the 2+2 hybrid concept stand for "Lexus Future." ἀ e new coupe, which was styled by Toyota's Calty design studio in California, is supposed to show the latest evolution of Lexus' design language; many of the cues on this show car have appeared on prior Lexus production and concept vehicles. "Our entire studio worked to develop this beautiful interpretation of Lexus originality," said Kevin Hunter, president of Calty. "ἀ e LF-LC concept embodies our vision of what a premium sport coupe could be." ἀ e mesh spindle-shaped front grille resembles that of the Lexus GS, for instance, while the swept-back headlights and stubby trunk recall the LFA supercar. ἀ e front fascia features vertical fog lamps in dot-matrix style housing that blend into functional air intakes ahead of the front wheels. Other design details include a panoramic glass roof with a "cantilevered pillar" and a rising, "kick-up window graphic."

MAMi 148

"ἀ e concept we're showing here in Detroit continues the Lexus design revolution started with the CT and GS," said Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "ἀ e concept hybrid 2+2 liberates the idea of a sport coupe and pushes the boundaries of performance, style and technology." ἀ e interior is a showcase of high-tech controls and infotainment systems including a number of touch-screen boards to help the driver remain focused on the road. ἀ ere is a touch-screen board within the center console, while both doors are also fitted with touch-screen surfaces that control windows, mirrors, seat adjustments, and personal entertainment settings. Interior surfaces are covered in leather, suede, and metallic and wood accents. It's rumored that the LF-LC may be headed for production in the near future. A production version LF-LC would be built on a shortened version of the next Lexus LS chassis, and have a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. ἀ e car may be called the LC 600h and go on sale in 2015.
