Chiraq: The Art of Film

I had the privilege of attending the 13th Annual Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival yesterday.

The lines were long and the seats full, for a preview & discussion of Spike Lee’s upcoming film, Chiraq, scheduled to premiere in December.

The film intertwines, Lysistrata, an Ancient Greek comedy & present day Chicago.

For all of those who aren’t familiar with the tale, it’s a provocative story about a woman who convinces the women of Greece to withhold sexual practices in order to end the Peloponesian War.

Combine that plot with the genocide ridden streets of Chicago & you are in Chiraq. Lee cultivates a new perspective of the violence laden neighborhoods in the southside of Chicago, through an artistic lens.

The juxtaposition of musical performances and the grit of the streets offers an unparalleled appeal.

The legendary director hopes that the art of the film will influence positive changes,not only in the communities of Chicago, but worldwide.

In the wake of the deaths of Freddie Gray & Sandra Bland, to name only 2 of the thousands of African Americans killed each year, this film will open eyes and make a statement.

Wake Up!

New Dimensions: Fashion & 3D Printing

Whether you’re looking to take your style to the next level or create the must-have look for next season, 3D printing will make you the talk of the room.

And boy are people talking!

From Nike to Katy Perry and the infamous ice-like dress from Iris Van Herpen’s show during Paris Fashion Week; fashion and technology have collaborated for an undeniably intriguing love affair.

In 2013, Shapeways, a 3D Printing service based in NYC, and the Ace Hotel collaborated with bombshell, Dita Von Teese, for this jaw-dropping gown.

The best part?

It was fully articulated and printed using a 3D printer!

By combining Fibonacci’s sequence, 3D printing, and over 12,000 Swarovski crystals; fashion took a leap into a new dimension.

Watch the video below to see just how this work of art was manufactured.

Fashionistas and designers can’t have all the fun. Techies and environmentalists should pay close attention to this collaboration as well.

This technological innovation lessens the need for paper designs and helps to eliminate some of the waste found in mass production.

Now is the  opportunity to shift the conversation towards inventive partnerships to improve the sustainability and environmental impact of 3D printers.

Shapeways takes the additive manufacturing process to the next level with each of their designs.

And it just keeps getting better…

In 2014, they collaborated with Nervous System Studios to create a fully functioning dress. The improvements made the garment more comfortable to the wearer and easier to construct; without forsaking the design or style.

Hyannis, Chatham,Provincetown, & Martha’s Vineyard are the most magical places I’ve visited on the East Coast, no questions. 

I learned so much about myself & a small wonder in this big world.

EEFA QUINN

ajaramilloquinn_off_lenni_3-1Lenni is one of those brands that I dream about wearing.

This dress has been on my wish list since they released the collection.

I finally got to hang it in my closet when Free People put it on sale for $55 buckaroos!

There is no way I could pass up such a great deal.

I paired the dress with my cut-off cowboy boots and wide brimmed hat because they all share a western theme.
