  • When I hear Brett from Boundless, images of high-tops, Adidas and rope “dookie” chains flood into my mind, especially after listening to “Hip Hop Mix 1.” This is not the only portal through time DJ Brett you take you through. Brett believes as a DJ he’s, “a conductor navigating place to place to alter one’s feelings with sound…[and] end up at a place called Boogie.” After listening to a few mixes from his podcast, I’ve been to that land called Boogie, and beyond.

    I remember sitting in seminars during my undergrad years, and having discussion of non-verbal forms of expression. Fashion is the voluntary and involuntary image that defines, and sums up your character in an instant. For fashion designer and AFP’s Fashion Director, Allyson Jacobs, she recognizes the power of fashion. What’s her style? I define it as clean and bold. There’s always a statement within each item, but the clean cuts and lines provides balance.

     Born and raised in Louisiana, Jacobs was taught the ropes–fit, style and fabric–of fashion at an early age from her mother, Jean. Now residing in New York City, she currently designs luxury lines for private clients. Outside of running her own line, Jacobs  “works to seek out and support other emerging fashion designers who exhibit artistic talent and determination.” These emerging designers that Jacobs works with have been showcased in NY Fashion Week and, some have went on to gain amazing editorial exposure in major publications.
