Once a year designers from all over the globe come together to join together in fashion matrimony. Fashion Week happened all over the world and fashion curators, buyers, stylist, and the fashion elite beheld the newest fashion for 2014 and beyond.
Sacramento Fashion Week just ended! Feb 16th-22nd 2014 all hot local and international designers presented their 2014 couture collections. This year it was held at the Mercedes Benz Art Museum.
1. Tell me about your 2013 collection?
My spring 2014 collection was called under the sea which also had mixture of Japanese inspirations. I used colors that represent spring, the beach, and various sea life. White was a main staple in the collection which reminded me of the beach. I also used sequined fabrics that resembled sea shells and tied the collection together by creating pieces that had Japanese design aesthetics.
2. What is the experience like this year at Sacramento Fashion Week?
My experience at Sacramento Fashion Week this year was awesome! This is my second time doing the show and I have built a following since the last showcase so I was excited to see the tremendous amount of people that came out to support me.
Designer: Eshonna Trice: Electrik Fashions
3. How many times have you shown at Sac best week? Nervous?
This is my second year doing Sac Fashion Week. I wasn’t as nervous as before but I did have some nerves lol. I think every designer has some nervousness whenever they have a big show.
4. What is your main aesthetic? And does it differ with this new collection?
My main aesthetic is designing clothes that all women can feel beautiful in. I don’t discriminate on size and I love making a woman feel beautiful no matter what their tag says. I am known for making garments that are sexy yet very classy.
5. What excites you about fashion? Keeps you motivated?
Having an idea in your head and executing that idea into something far more than you could have imaged is what excited me about fashion. My motivation is the people that wear my garments, I love meeting new clients that are happy with their dress they feel sexy, and they know that they have something that has been uniquely made…
6. Are all couture made? (Hand made)
I make all my pieces none are manufactured, a lot of my couture gowns are sewn by hand. My most recent hand sewn gown was featured in Sac Fashion Week I call it, the “Seashell” gown.
8. How can consumers purchase? (Links etc.)
9. Did you watch the shows? If so, other designers that rocked!
Yes! There were many talented designers that ripped the runway for Fashion week a few of my favorites were Maisha Bahati, Micheal Kouri, Love by Janelle Cardenas, and Mimi Tran. I also had a team of talented artists that are great designer too. Jennifer Beranrd with Haute Baubles Jewelry designed all the jewelry for my runway collection and Tyneice Hall of Swagger House of Fashion and Art designed the shoes.
The runway also had a celebrity model and friend to Style Me, Jason Thompson of the Sacramento Kings. who also gave Style Me and exclusive on his runway adventure.
Style Me asked Jason Thompson three question about his experience:
1. How did his modeling come about?
2. Overall experience summary?
After stating it not to be his first time hitting the runway and he feels as though he could be a model; he had this to say,”(I had a) Real nice time! I do a lot of things other than basketball. I love fashion and modeling.
I went with R. Douglas clothing. Got fitted and did my thing on runway with some good people.” -Jason Thompson: Sacramento Kings.

One of the greatest voices to ever visit this earth.
Prince: Musician Extraordinaire
Confidence is Key: Love Yourself First.
Oprah is an all around mogul. She’s not only one of the most successfully known names in entertainment. She works off set amazingly as a world wide philanthropist.
Reports say that Malcolm’s family felt offended at the use of his photo as the songs cover. Regardless it was regal and a great use of the photo, and the controversy just helped shed more light on his message.
It’s African American Heritage month and Malcolm X stood for people being the best they can be in his time. Nicki Minaj new song although pretty explicit, her message overshadows it all. While it is a fun song, she is cutting asunder with her explicit venom of truth.
The Island beauty has warmed the hearts of people all around the globe. Not bad for a exotic Barbarian who just so happen to turn the big twenty-six today! Happy birthday Robyn “Rihanna” Fenty.
Rihanna: Dem Haters
This is one of the best Rihanna songs. It comes from her early April 2006 album “A girl like me.” While the album was one of her young attempts, this song just revealed her soul, realness and sharp intuitions; which is what mass audiences fell in love with later on around 2008 with the releasing of the hit “Umbrella.”
“The greatest test in your life is not failure, the greatest testing your life is success! Failure is not a big test! Because when you’re failing you have no options. Success gives you options!”
Although a very explicit talent; he’s a talent none the less. Lil Wayne impresses the masses with his sick musical flow. Style Me sees him growing in his artistry and continuously advancing as a musician.

Mercedes Benz Fashion week previewed the looks for 2014-15 collections! This year the runways previews clothing that’s practical and wearable. A lot of prints, fur, new figure flattering silhouettes. All and all though, designers still brought on the drama!
Recently red is really hot on the trend circuit. Feb 7th people all over the US wore red in honor of the American Heart Association. There is another reason to throw on that red top, V-tines is vastly approaching!
With plaid now being the go to thing, is it safe to say plaid is hot for the holiday of romance? Mix plaids a go for Valentines.
Solid colors are best to compliment the striking plaid print. Try a solid color necklace with bold plaid items of choice and watch your outfit live!
Whitney Houston: “Dance with Somebody”

“When I was 14, I was the oldest I ever was. I’ve been getting younger ever since.” — Shirley Temple
Shirley Temple dies at 85. 04/23/1928- 2/11/2014. She is the most famous child star to ever live! Playing in tons of movies, singing and dancing her way into America’s heart. She won her first Oscar at only six years old.
In this day and age people lives are taken too soon. People give up hope too easily and aren’t willing to do what it takes to make life’s process work. Often getting too frustrated and forget that things take time and smart choices.
News on Obama Care:
Obama care will help full time workers be able to cut down hours and still take advantage of healthcare benefits. There has been a lot of fire in regards to Obama care, most criticizing and calling the program a failure. This can be described as conservatives afraid of a permanent change. The insurance program is no worse then other government resources and programs.
To be able to enjoy the world long term America needs to find alternative ways to continue what the founders of the country started. The world is changing and we’re running out of resources. Our entire country is trying to keep up with the consumer demand!
While conservatives keep saying this happened within the last five years, our economy is a result of YEARS!!!!!!! Of this sort of behavior and things started busting at the seams when we began the war and wasted lives, money, and precious time. Our nation started as a new world, meaning people with new power and greed. This is why America has become over indulged and we’re the decendents of past choices made without taking into consideration long term effects. While America is one of the greatest free nations, it still has issues it needs to work out. Thinking of new eco-friendly ways to do things may continue to help move our country in the right direction, long term.

Talented Gold Medal gymnast! She is the first gymnast of color in history to become the individual all around Olympic champion in 2012! She was also a part of the world champion team of 2011.
Justice a fighter but in this time, you have to be! At a young age making young mistakes, but once she became of age she decided to make a good life for herself and her infant son.
Its no secret that a major portion of the African American community is now suffering from lack of education/knowledge, low income, and lack of resources. If she only had the opportunity to live a little bit longer heaven only knows what she may have become. This is a growing issue in the lower income African-American communities.
A: “Well a major contribution was us setting a franchise record of the opponent by only shooting 20% from the field. Even though we had more turn overs and the assists where high…
A: “Well I’m not the coach! (laughs) but um… I mean in the fourth quarter the last twelve minuets is obviously important! You can’t just do things by yourself and be selfish and things like that. You have to play team defense; the bench starts off the fourth quarter. You have to make sure your locked in and doing the same thing that’s going on throughout the game, but pretty much just going to the game plan. Finishing plays on offense also important on defense you finish it with a game rebound then you play a good game!”
A: “I don’t think it’s going to advance our team in general, but globally it’s very nice! It’s defiantly great for the fans; seeing the inside stuff. The NBA and the league has changed when it comes to stuff like that! This is more like an in depth analysis of in game situations, what guys talk, pre-game stuff, post game and all that type of stuff. I mean it’s interesting for us but I think it’s more for the fans.”
A: “It’s defiantly different! Seeing it in HD and all types of camera angels and views; looking at the game in a different perspective… I think it’s more exciting!!! It’s not like it’s going to make a team win more games and stuff like that but for the aspect of watching the game and learning it, it’s defiantly going to be good for the kids and fans, for sure.”
A: Being consistent, having consistent jump shot, being able to do stuff offensively and defensively; doing what it takes to lead your team. Getting your rebounds up… you know just being consistent and injury free.
Well I have a degree in Communications and T.V Radio so life after Basketball? I want to be in analysis, be on T.V and have my own Radio show. Outside of that perspective I like to go traveling, bowling, going to different countries, trying new foods meeting new people, learning new languages um… being near the water and warm weather and I’m very family oriented so I love to hang with my family and my friends.
A: Well hopefully positive stuff! More of the play that we had in Chicago last night and go on from that! I think most of our games, I would say eighty to ninety percent of them it’s just been in the fourth courtier where we’ve had leads going into the fourth courtier and it just fell short. So we have to go back and look at those films and learn from that and keep maturing as a team.
A: Yeah we’re defiantly going in the right direction. Having a new great owner Vivek Ranadive, a new GM and a new Coach is defiantly one good thing about it. The media can stop asking us if we’re going to leave Sacramento or not; that’s not a question I have to answer anymore we’d be here forever!!! The new arena that’s going to be built in the next couple of years, that’s going to be great! So its defiantly a lot of promise. We’re a young team, it’s not like we’re an old ancient team. We’ve got a lot of talent and when you put it all together it makes for a great kick butt team.

Awesome event! This was definitely a historical mark that Super Bowl had ever done. There were so many cool things going on and many people were out for the event during the cold temperature in New York City. Still that didn’t stop people to come out and support their team and had fun. Truly a remarkable event and definitely great showcase on Bruno Mars Half Time performance with Red Hot Chili.
