During NYFW onSeptember 9th, at the James Hotel, the American designer CHRISTOPHER LOWMAN premiered his Spring/Summer 2019 collection highlighting his street style with luxury fabrics in bright colors and textures.

The collection was inspired by 1980’s Summer Olympics. He rebooted the looks from the official Olympics opening ceremonies of that decade. Lowman then reimagined it for the 21st century by merging sophisticated clean silhouettes with a touch of edge.

Fabrics and textures included lambskin leathers mixed with neoprene, mixed media cow hides, golden tricot nylons, pullover’s, tracksuit.

Born and raised in New York City, Christopher began his career in 2014 interning for menswear brands in nyc. At 21 Christopher was assigned to a internship at Pyer Moss working closely with the designer and assistants. As Christopher soaked in every information he was provided he gained confidence to start his own company.

Christopher Lowman began as a project to reinvent the 1980’s rockstar by adding unique patterns and refining the fit. Christopher Lowman uses high-end materials, masculine form, unique pattern making, and modern tailoring to create luxury menswear. The Christopher Lowman collection is produced in New York City.


Before Christopher Lowman actually launched a full collection he has amassed support internationally from press such as NYLON ESPANOL, Bello, Indie, The Fashionisto, Huffington Post and many more. Christopher Lowman also gained the attention of celebrities like Chris Brown, Jake Miller, Aidan Alexander, Jr. Smith and many more.



In July 2017 Christopher launched his ss18 collection called “Harvard Punkd” evolving around college students battling a chain of emotions throughout a semester. The collection was featured in Vogue Paris, NY Times, Candid Magazine etc.

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Apollo from Minus Gravity at the Christopher Lowman Spring/Summer 2019 Presentation

The hip hop team, San Antonio natives and now Los Angeles-based hip-hop band Minus Gravity released their single “Options” along with its music video. The track was produced by Grammy award-winner Rich Skillz [Robin Thicke, Nas, Ludacris]. I was excited to be talking to their exciting new release at the Christopher Lowman Spring/Summer 2019 Presentation.

“Options” reveals and expresses the trio’s hypnotic hybrid of hip-hop, and R&B.

Their exciting music shows a diversity of sound from sharp rhymes and catchy chants with an unpredictable beat to a hash-tag-able hook.

Their sexy video brings the lyrics to life as Minus Gravity wild out with a bevy of gorgeous sensuous ladies and overflowing champagne.

"My kind of music and video, love Pink Champagne."

Get it HERE via 432 Entertainment/Capitol Music Group.


“Options” paves the way for more music to come from the group as well as a forthcoming EP. Minus Gravity might just be the rockstars hip-hop has been waiting for all along.

I always love interviewing Fashion Designer David Tupaz from Las Vegas!


His designs are always nostalgic with models  walking the runway perfectly ensembled in retro fashions from Old Hollywood, Think Lana Turner, Bette  Grable, Ava Gardner and  Rita Hayworth!


This season the collection was inspired by Madagascar, Spain in all its  splendor!


Mr. Tupaz showcased his collection at Manhattan Center 311 West 34th St. NY 10001

Adrian Alicea Spring 2019

This season Designer Adrian Alicea designed his fabulous collection around his mother Carmen who was born in 1928.  "Her favorite color was pink and red," revealed Adrian  during our invterview.


The collection was glamorous, elegant and reminiscent of the late 1920's and 30's with many flowing gowns cut on a bias, typical from that era.  Think Jean Harlow and Mae West.  Former Yves St. Laurent Model Shaila Edmonds walked the runway wearing a gorgwous gown and wavy pinkcurls!

Bahmardi Spring 2019

Haute Couture designer, Tuenaz Bahmardi, has fond memories working alongside her mother in her couture boutique in Mumbai, India…gaining valuable hands-on experience meeting various tailors, master cutters, and embroider artists. She was able to learn the “ins” and “outs” of the fashion industry and although she had no formal training, Tuenaz spent numerous years and countless hours honing her craft. She started out by making outfits for friends and family and even designing all her own clothes. Tuenaz grew a desire to combine the love and passion for hand and machine embroideries she developed growing up in the East with the sophistication of Western fashion and culture. She developed an exquisite feel for fabrics and colors, a devotion to detail, and a sure sense for what many women desired – luxury, feminine, elegance, and opulent embroideries –thus, the birth of Bahmardi.

Richard Hallmarq Spring 2019

Richard Hallmarq’s latest line is all about  stark streetwear, a look back at the 2000s with fresh eyes. Forgive the philosophical statement, but the simplicity of each piece seemed to be a self-reflexive comment on simplicity itself. A comment on how fashionable something straightforward could be. It was kind of exciting, watching someone embrace the best of street style without trying to force high fashion and low fashion to work together. There was a sense of ease, very L.A.-inspired ease, which gave you hope for New York City obsessions like athleisure. So pull out your baseball cap and embrace the baggy wifebeater. Casual isn’t hard if you listen to the experts.

THE FUR SALON AT SAKS FIFTH AVENUE NYFW FALL/WINTER 2018

During NYFW Fall/Winter 2018 I attended a glamorous presentation of furs at the Fur Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue at their flagship department store on the third floor in midtown, Manhattan.

So, now you’re probably wondering where to begin? How and where do you choose a fur piece? As a fur lover my recommendation would be to choose the right kind of fur that suits your taste and lifestyle.

You should always consider how you’ll wear your fur. If you want an everyday fur, mink, beaver, raccoon or coyote may be your best choices. If you prefer a luxury or dressy fur, chinchilla, ermine, mink, sable, lynx or fox are more appropriate. In my opinion you should always purchase a fur that will be appropriate for all occasions. So select the one that will suit your overall lifestyle best.


If this is your first fur, my recommendation would be mink. it really is the best fur and does last the longest. A mink coat can last a lifetime. Never keep a fur in plastic! The skins have to breathe. You should always store your furs during the summer in the Fur Salon. Heat is dangerous for the skins as they will dry up. Never keep a white fur in direct light. It will cause the fur to oxidize and yellow. You should always keep your furs in a cold dry place.

At the Fur Salon at Saks Fifth Avenue the choices are endless. You can purchase every top designer's line of fur!

Ana Ono Intimates X Project Cancerland NYFW Presented by Art Hearts Fashion

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews . Dr Katie Deming, a Board Certified Radiation Oncologist at Ana Ono Intimates X Project Cancerland NYFW Presented by Art Hearts Fashion

Radiation for breast cancer cause skin sensitivity and irritation, making it difficult to wear traditional lingerie. And yet, women need the support of a bra or camisole to alleviate breast swelling and tenderness caused by radiation treatments. For years, there was nothing on the market that was soft enough or designed specifically to meet the needs of women with skin sensitivities from surgery and radiation. Dr Katie Deming, a board certified radiation oncologist was frustrated by this lack of options and spent years helping her patients modify their own bras to make them more comfortable. Unfortunately, these solutions were often inadequate and definitely not sexy. Finally, she decided to take matters into her own hands and create the solution her patients so desperately needed. MAKEMERRY is that solution: lingerie that looks amazing and feels luxuriously soft against the most sensitive skin. Dr. Deming continues to practice radiation oncology full time and therefore partnered with AnaOno to bring her products to market. 


For more information please visit http://www.makemerrybody.com


#Cancerland is a media platform focused on changing the conversation about breast cancer through the honest voices of real individuals living with this disease every day. Through discussions of topics such as intimacy during and after treatment or the harsh financial realities of cancer, #Cancerland provides a platform to address breast cancer’s often ignored realities.

#Cancerland advocates for research into therapies that will extend the lives of terminally ill cancer patients, and eventually turn Stage IV disease into a chronic condition, not a death sentence. It rejects the notion that this disease defines the people who battle it. We are not victims marching to our pink ribbon deaths. We choose to live our lives fully and completely, while accepting the highs and lows of a disease that afflicts 1-in-8 women every year and kills 108 Americans every day.

DAVID TUPAZ FALL/WINTER 2018

David Tupaz Couture is one brand that  dazzles the audience like a Las Vegas Show.  The David Tupaz Fall 2018 collection made premiered at New York Fashion Week‘s Style Fashion Week at Cipriani in Manhattan.

Shimmering gold lamé gowns, opulent jeweled embellishments, and dramatic printed black capes ruled this season’s runway.  The Filipino designer showcased a range of elegant evening wear that we could picture so many Hollywood celebrities loving for red carpet events – but he also displayed luxury ready-to-wear garments like cozy knit sweaters and statement blazers.


“Fashion is the extension of our personalities. It dignifies our humanity, just like art and music,” the designer has previously shared. “I believe in capturing elegance; an allure of romantic feminism with a tailored twist. It speaks of a modern dignified grace.”  Designer David Tupaz revealed.


Hailed as couture's new genius, Filipino designer, David Tupaz, is the shining Filipino gem in the Hollywood red carpet.   What makes David stand out among other designers is not only his elegant and stylish haute couture work but also his passion for his craft, love for his clients, attention to detail and pursuit of excellence.

The charismatic and gregarious David, who was trained in New York, said he moved to Los Angeles because "I needed a change in environment. I love New York but I wanted more. Hollywood dictates fashion in America. New York might be the center of fashion but Hollywood is the window. People want to wear what they see on the stars."

However, breaking into Hollywood was an uphill battle. "It was intimidating," he said. "Being a minority and an Asian, I felt that my chances of making it here in Hollywood were slim. But I believed that the Filipino talent is at par with the best of the world and that was my inspiration to keep on going. So I went beyond the brand and created a distinct rebirth of old Hollywood." Today, David is living his dream.

Among his clients are William and Elizabeth Shatner, Alan and Tanya Thicke, Patti Austin, Trisha Simmons, Jane Seymour, Mitzi Kapture, Lisa Rinna, Kris Kardashian Jenner, Etta James, Christine Baranski, Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, Mariel Hemingway, Rain Pryor, Kelly LeBrock, Bo Derek, Cheryl Ladd, Annette Bening and Tracy Hamilton just to name a few.  Photos by Mark Gunter

TV Host Cognac Wellerlane interviews Designer Adrian Alicea at his Adrian Alicea Fall/Winter 2018 Show At Style Fashion Week

Adrian Alicea Fall/Winter 2018 Show At Style Fashion Week

This season Designer Adrian Alicea Fall/Winter Collection was inspired by Adrian's travel.  He titled the Collection "The Eye of The Travel."  In his Fall/Winter Collection 45 pieces were showcased.


The temerity of Adrian Alicea is only surpassed by the precise execution of his vision. Adrian Alicea is the new romantic of romantic excesses. Creating a pirate-like fairy-tale of disguises, he walks a tightrope between ironic hedonistic inclination and highly serious social commentary. There is an insane carcinogenic, merciless narcissism. There is a deafening, endless shout of "gimme more!" –Earl Murray

Adrian Alicea is an award-winning fashion/costume designer and creative director based in New York City. Born in Puerto Rico, Adrian moved to NYC at the age of three. In his teen years, he would spend hours studying art; this deep exploration of the human spirit engendered an unrivaled love for expression through dance. At the age of 21, Rae Dawn Chong discovered Adrian at the iconic nightclub The Tunnel and invited him to go to Paris and walk for Thierry Mugler’s couture show. From there his career took off and with persistent effort continued working with the masters of Europe: Hermes, Giorgio Armani, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Gianfranco Ferre, Vivienne Westwood, and Patricia Fields and graced the stage with notable supermodels Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Debra Shaw, Veruschka von Lehndorff, Tyson Beckford, Iman, and Marpessa Hennink.

He’d eventually tour the world as a professional dancer alongside the legendary Willi Ninja and Grace Jones. This led to two electrifying performances in "Deep in Vogue" and "Waltz Darling" by the multi-talented Malcolm McClaren.

In the late nineties Adrian met Nico Urquiza and the House of Nico & Adrian was born. Their partnership eventually led to Linda Evangelista gracing the 2003 September issue cover of Italian Vogue with their iconic spiked wrestling helmet. Marie Claire, Flaunt, Numéro, Billboard, Vogue Russia, and other prestigious publications highlighted their high fashion editorials soon afterward. The lens of Steven Meisel and David LaChapelle immortalized their inimitable style and concepts. In due course, after a beautiful engagement, both Nico and Adrian decided to part ways amicably on artistic grounds.

After starting his own brand Adrian Alicea, Adrian’s creativity began to shift and take on new forms, culminating in unique and unorthodox ideas for style and fashion. He presented runway shows that were so scandalous in their overt sexiness many of the world's top models and fashion photographers lined up for collaborations.

Adrian has since teamed up with many celebrities over the years, designing for stars such as Zoe Saldana, Lil Kim, Marilyn Manson, Nick Cannon, Chingy, Melissa Ford, The Mummy's Patricia Velásquez, Anna Cleveland, Daddy Yankee, Naughty by Nature's Treach, India Arie and Camila Alves.

Most recently, aside from showing at New York Fashion Week, Adrian Alicea became the proud recipient of the 2016 Cinemoi Film Festival Award for best new emerging designer in Los Angeles, California. Celebrating his growth as an artist and paying tribute to his Latino and Taino Indian roots, Adrian quietly states: "I love color. I love music. I love culture."

Always with love,

Adrian Alicea
