FAME Presents x Content Magazine | Fashion Panel

A special thank you to Content Magazine and FAME Presents for organizing a Fashion Industry panel discussion last week. It was a such an inspiration to be amongst a group of inspiring and passionate panel of entrepreneurial innovators. What a great opportunity to be able to come together and immerse ourselves in conversation to share our experiences, insights and vulnerabilities in front of friends and strangers who all share one thing in common. Thank you to all that came out to support and listen!

Meeting Markus Klinko

My blog is relatively new and is in need of update from past events, starting first with my trip to New York with Mark Sebastian, Simpson Yiu and Jackie Martinez back in September 2007. Long story short, the four of us headed to grand old New York City on business to meet celebrity photographer Markus Klinko. We had the honor of staying at the Tribeca Grand Hotel for a weekend. Our itinerary included dinner plans with Markus Klinko at EN Japanese Brasserie, random street shoots with Jackie, a happenstance meeting with a timid greyhound that had once modeled in Elle magazine, and random excursions around the big city. It definitely was a memorable adventure filled with interesting characters and humorous stories. You can view the slideshow with more photos below:

Times Square
Mark, Simpson and I decided to start shooting Jackie in the middle of Times Square and all of a sudden a crowd of people start forming a line to take pictures with Jackie. A phrase from a side conversation I overheard between a girlfriend and her boyfriend: “She ain’t no model! She just look GOOD!” says girlfriend. Boyfriend lines up to take a photo with Jackie regardless of girlfriend’s comment. Photo by Simpson Yiu.
