As I write this letter for our second edition of Arta Chic, I've gone through many changes this past year, but this change has been the best one to come so far. I've learned that when change arrives, it will put you in a place that makes you very uncomfortable, vulnerable, and doubtful. Change will place some fear in your heart that causes you to secondguess yourself. But on the other side of change, it puts you in a position to be challenged, makes you stronger, gives you clear vision, faith, and brings new beginnings and fresh, clean air to inhale as we begin a new path. We fail to see the potential in greater things because of fear. If we want to grow, we should never focus on what we see, because it's only temporary. You need to make room and extra space because many blessings will start to flow when you accept change. The Creator, higher power or (whatever you feel) makes all things possible. Just believe and step out with faith. If faith doesn't exist then change will never occur. Change is a word that I can honestly use for this year. New visions. New adventures. New creations and new blessings from everywhere. I would like to thank all those that made this issue happen.

We love it when our girls exceed their own dreams. Recently we caught up with our very own Naomi McKenzie who we interviewed a year ago about her journey to becoming the next big thing in modeling. Since then she’s managed to get signed with Cliché Model Management, a new agency founded by Melissa Drummond who represents unique, diverse women with beauty. Naomi gave us the 411 on how
things are going. 32
AC: Congrats to getting signed with an agency! The last time we spoke you were looking to get picked up. You’re doing amazing things with your new modeling agency. How did that come about? How did you get signed? NAOMI: Thanks a lot. Yes. At that time I was in the middle of sending my portfolio to various agencies. But I noticed a casting call that required models to attend an audition type of casting day for a new modeling agency and got told to attend for a test shoot and from there I was a part of Cliché’ Model Management. AC: What have you learned since being signed with Cliché’? NAOMI: I have learnt that you have to have patience, especially because it’s a new and upcoming agency. We are still trying to promote it as much as possible. There are not many agencies that have such a diverse number of models on their books. So I believe Cliché’ will go on to great things in the future. AC: When we last spoke you mentioned that you were studying contemporary dance and ballet. Is that something you’re still doing? NAOMI: Unfortunately, no. I studied dance for a year but wanted to continue studying my other subjects (Media, Spanish and Sociology). AC: How do you feel now that you have representation? NAOMI: I’m very happy to be represented and excited to see what the future holds for me and my career in modeling. 33

hen Marz LoveJoy
breezed into the Hollywood Roosevelt suite that Sunday afternoon, at first glance all you see are a trail of long skinny braids. Ends dipped in royal blue. Tiny in frame with a big smile, she’s beautiful before the makeup. Clad in an easy black top and shorts high enough to reveal prominent tattoos on each leg, the 21-year-old hip hop artist began to sort through the many different looks hanging on a nearby rolling rack. The day practically flew by. After deciding not to shoot down by the pool area because a notable deejay was throwing a ridiculously loud party, there were only two looks left. Besides Bowie being on the wall, always a good sign, we experienced another truly rock and roll moment. Being kicked out of the hallway by the hotel’s security. Something about permits and paparazzi. We would wrap soon. While Marz ate dinner we managed to slide in a few questions about her upcoming album Elephant Soundz, being an only child and the music business.

You did a film with Common, “L.U.V.”, back in 2011. Do you think you want to focus more on film or continue with your music? Right now just balance it out. Make room for both. You’ve been doing the modeling thing for a minute so this is easy breezy for you. Yeah. I grew up modeling. I love to model. When did you decide to make that transition from being a model to becoming a recording artist? Really modeling was my mom’s big deal. I never was like, “Mom, I wanna be a model.” Everybody would just tell her, “She needs to be modeling”. My mom kinda knew. At what age? When I was five. It was something I grew to love. Not like something I wanted to do. I grew to love it. The competition. I had an outgoing personality already. So it worked. But music's always been there playing in the background of my life. Music's always been important. I've been around it since I was born.
You’re a hip-hop artist who also sings. Who would your fans or listeners be surprised that you listened to? The Little River Band. That is surprising. I wasn’t expecting you to say that. Word. I listen to all music. I like all genres. Even country. Your album “Elephant Sounds” is slated for a later release date. Getting closer to a date? No. But I am working on music. The factor is getting everything that I want for the album and putting it together. I have music. Making sure everything is well executed. What influenced the title? I think everything should be big. I do big things. I’m a big person. Really just taking charge. Stampeding through whatever it is you want to do. Bringing my big thinking into the sounds. Listening to the track, “Dolo”. Is that how you roll? Yeah. I’m an only child. I’m by myself a lot. I think it’s important to take time for yourself. There are a lot of people who get mixed up in everybody else’s life. Their drama. Besides working on music, any plans once you head back to Coney Island? Traveling. Getting money to pay 46
my bills. Life shit.

SOMETHING TO FALL FOR ABOUT MEN
No matter how one may interpret or feel about the term ‘fashion‘ every man must know that style, can be accomplished by creating ensembles to compliment your mood or adding By Inga Grimmett small accessories to express special occasions. This helps accentuate your character as a man and provides a story to who you are. Of course the main ingredient is to simply stay true to one’s self and everything else will fall into place. Queue...Londontown Men’s Fashion Week (London) began this year’s style conversation by participating as the first host of the year to showcase menswear collections for Fall 2015. Over 100 designers participated in the London Collections giving presentations and events from Savile Row to Designer Showrooms, including its three official venues, The Hospital Club, The Old Sorting Office and Victoria House, WC2. The event, which took place from January 6-8, 2014, presented modern interpretations of timeless pieces and illustrated contemporary takes on classic bespoke attire. Although the collections presented were not high in number, in the traditional sense of fashion or style week shows, there were many established design houses and debuting designers the exemplified why menswear fashion shows, photographed street gear and men’s grooming and tailoring options are becoming and will become, more and more, trending topics. 55
