“THE OCTOBER ISSUE” ICONIC, STUNNING STYLE AT EVERY AGE.

ICONIC, STUNNING STYLE AT EVERY AGE!! WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER ISSUE! In the wee hours of a mid-September night, I couldn’t sleep to save my life. In this situation, I normally begin to write my thoughts. I began surfing Instagram and landed on the handle of a dear friend, Liza Cruzat Brooks. I was touched by how positive her feed was. It was all about her family and her 91 year old mother, still a yoga-loving diva. I was instantly inspired, and I decided right then on the October issue, “AGE DEFYING.” I called Liza the following day and Liza and her mother, Millie, agreed to shoot for the “AGE DEFYING ISSUE”. In a situation like this, I normally wander the floors of...

OUR CHOICE FOR FALLS NEW IT BAG! LOEWE “BARCELONA” BAG.

FALL'S NEW "IT BAG"! For a woman, a bag is a must have accessory.In todays world she is given an abundance in choices, as in Kate Spade and the never ending Michael Kor's, which I believe one in every 5 woman has. My desire is to change all that. I'd prefer for a woman to be an individual and choose her go to accessory based not by popularity but by design . When scouting for looks and accessories for shoots I tend to choose based on the thought of " I've never seen this before". This Loewe bag was one of those tendencies. I've photographed, Givenchy, Dior, Prada, McQueen and numerous others but wanted something fresh that wasn't popular with the...

Welcome to Beautiful Fall: September Will Never Be the Same! WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE. We’re overjoyed with all the melanin popping on the covers of BRITISH VOGUE, AMERICAN VOGUE, ELLE, GLAMOUR, MARIE CLAIRE, and of course TWOmuchSTYLE. Our cover star, @Iamberry, comes to us via MP Management and is a newbie to the modeling world, a mere few months. We are thrilled to be her first major editorial and cover. The first thing I said to her upon meeting is, “You know you’re going to be big.” I don’t think she understands that she has the look of the moment, and this will take her to the runways of Paris and beyond. Remember, “You saw her here, first.” In researching for this month’s fashion...

A CHANGE IS GONNA COME!!

WELCOME TO JUNE! We hope that you're staying safe in this time of chaos and uncertainty. The great artist Sam Cook sang "A CHANGE IS GONNA COME" in 1964. Change comes in fits and starts. My hope is that this is a  Great Leap Forward and a social awakening. As I write, so many people are protesting racial inequality all over the world. Instagram and all social media are being used to support "BLACK LIVES MATTER" and I couldn't be happier. As a Black man and one of the very few Black stylist in this city, I can truly say that it's about time people are called to action. There are too few of us, and our voices and unique...

THERE’S ALWAYS A CALM AFTER A STORM!

As I write this, we are all at home in quarantine trying to make the best of what life has thrown at us. I firmly believe that the planet is sending us a message to calm down, stop racing and take a little time to smell the roses. It's been noted that dolphins aren't actually frolicking in the canals of Venice as some have stated, but pollution is down worldwide in places like Los Angeles and Beijing China. As a society and a world , Its a bit too late to stop and smell the roses, but at a time like this We should stop and make our lives just a bit more beautiful. In our Featured image Mark D...
