ERODNEY DAVIS

Some of the biggest stars in the world rely on Erodney Davis and his agency, Basic White Shirt, with its roster of the world’s most sought-after Celebrity Hairstylists, Makeup Artists and Nail Artists, to look their best.

After graduating with honors from North Carolina A&T State University in 1996, Davis accepted a job at ad agency, Y&R New York, while also moonlighting as part-time personal assistant to Celebrity Makeup Artist and Author, Sam Fine.

After more than a decade developing his acute business acumen alongside visionaries from the world of advertising, beauty and fashion, Davis changed course, leaving corporate America behind with only his savings and a desire to work in a more creative capacity. A month later, he began assisting top Casting Directors in NY, Paris & Milan, helping designers like Ralph Lauren, Proenza Schouler, Alice Temperley, and J. Mendel choose the most elite models of the moment to bring their designer collections to life on the runway.

During this time, Davis experienced a full-circle moment when Sam Fine tapped him to manage Fine’s freelance bookings and eventually other clients came calling, giving rise to Davis’ boutique agency, Basic White Shirt, boasting a cadre of talented beauty professionals. Davis continued casting models for New York Fashion Week for another 8 years while simultaneously running BWS. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, Davis’ main focus is growing his agency’s roster with select, creative clientele and managing the needs of his world-class talent.

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary

On the second day of New York Fashion week, celebrities and fashion elite came together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ralph Lauren.

The American fashion house marked its half century by hosting a fashion show and gala dinner seamlessly integrated against the backdrop of the Bethesda Terrace fountain in Manhattan’s Central Park, a homage to Mr Lauren’s hometown of New York City.

In keeping with the philanthropy of the brand, the event benefited the Central Park Conservancy – a private, nonprofit organisation that relies on donations to prevent the decline of the world-renowned park.

Mr Lauren initially launched his eponymous label in 1967 aged 28. The lifestyle brand began as a collection of men’s ties, before developing into the first ‘Polo’ menswear collection in 1968. Womenswear was introduced in the 1970s. Today, the designer still acts as chief creative officer at the brand.

Content includes interviews and GVs with guests David Lauren, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Steven Spielberg, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to name a few and is available free of copyright and free of charge.

Kamiesha Garbadawala

Kamiesha Garbadawala (b. 1977, Westmoreland, Jamaica) worked as a designer at fashion houses Ralph Lauren, Celine, Henri Bendel, and launched a celebrated line of handbags with Barneys, before she was compelled by a set of personal tragedies to begin anew. Garbadawala’s creative passion has reemerged and flourishes as the energetic and gestural works resulting from her meditative, stream-of-consciousness paintings, which she says:

“Explore the emotions which ebb and flow within [my] day-to-day as a wife, mother and creative. Amidst the constant noise that is New York City living, there is security found within a world created and controlled by my own hand.”

The Parsons graduate has exhibited as a part of SVA’s Summer Residency and Open Studios and Creative Mischief by the National Academy Museum, and has garnered praise and awards from ArtSlant (Showcase Winner) as well as Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series (Semi-Finalist,Eden”). She was recently selected for a solo exhibition in New York City to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Garbadawala’s work can be found in private collections across the country and, most recently, at SCOPE Art Basel Miami Beach with ArtePonte (Booth B33).

RALPH LAUREN PRESENTS THE SEPTEMBER 2017 COLLECTION FASHION SHOW

On the evening of September 12th, guests will be welcomed to Ralph’s Garage in Bedford, New York for the prolific American designer’s September 2017 Collection Fashion Show.

The see-now, buy-now show and formal dinner following will be held against the backdrop of Ralph Lauren’s esteemed collection of rare automobiles. Ralph Lauren will present menswear looks from Ralph Lauren Purple Label directly alongside his women’s collection, complementing the masculine and feminine references inherent in the automotive designs.

For the first time ever, the celebrities, buyers and press attending Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2017 New York Fashion Show will be welcomed into the American designer’s home in Bedford, New York, where a formal dinner event – and a see-now, buy-now catwalk show – will take place within the unique confines of Ralph’s esteemed garage. It is in this garage that Ralph houses his unrivaled collection of classic and rare automobiles.

Combining Ralph Lauren’s passion for cars, luxury and fashion, guests will be in for an ultimately personalised experience in which his top-line Purple Label menswear and womenswear collections will be debuted alongside each other for the first time in history.

Set against the spectacular backdrop of one of the world’s most esteemed automotive collections, the show presented Lauren’s passion for automobiles and classic, enduring style, in front of the likes of Katie Holmes, Dianne Keaton, Jessica Chastain and Nina Dobrev.

Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid walked the runway with race-inspired looks connecting the elements of speed, style and beauty of the designer’s handcrafted vehicles with the very modern, yet timeless spirit of clothes. To heighten the experience, for the first time men wearing looks from Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label collection joined the women on a runway lined with the designer’s cars in the pristine environment of his Garage.

Models and celebrities had exclusive access to the prolific American designer’s vintage cars collection, which included his 1955 Mercedes Gullwing purchased in the 1980s and his award-winning 1938 Bugatti 57CSC Atlantic.

The hand-selected guest lists included Dianne Keaton, Jessica Chastain, Nina Dobrev, Katie Holmes, Kevin Love, Armie Hammer and more esteemed attendees.

Items from the Fall 2017 collection were immediately available on Ralphlauren.com and in global flagship stores, including New York, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai and through top retail partners including Saks Fifth Avenue, Moda Operandi, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
