FEATURE OF THE WEEK:

TROISIEME

If you have never been to the dope, artistic loft on the corner of Metropolitan and Shelton Ave. in Atlanta, Georgia then you are missing out! As an ATLien, I have never been to this location. A spot filled with nothing but art, good vibes, good music, and Atlanta’s own flare of urban-hippies.

Artlanta Gallery known for hosting dope events dedicated to the independent artists and musicians held an event catered to alumni of Tuskegee University currently residing in Atlanta or surrounding areas. There were several music artists along with art and fashion vendors like Amir James, YoMEGZ, PENTHOUSE, Art by Tay and our feature of week Troisieme.

Redefining “casual classics”

Redefining “casual classics”

MR.JAMES, designer and the creative mind behind this amazing brand, Troisieme. Upon approach I had to ask, “How do I say this, so I do not mess it up”? With a smile and chuckle he laughed and said “twa zee em”.  Troisieme, a word with French style characteristics of slim, tailored fit with an American flare.

Troisieme has a collection of basic tees, hoodies, slim fit joggers, and more. This amazing  mens wearing looks appealing, feels of great quality and gives you something personally from the designer; his hand stitched exclusive T.E.F. pieces that reminds of you fur from fluffy teddy bears or a rug that makes your tired feet feel at home.

With a good 5 year plan, James will have an expansion of his brand with more than just you comfy appareal, but with a line of tailored fit blazers, pants, suite sets, and more to make you American-living men feel like you shopped from a boutique in France.

How to Attend Fashion Week

When mapping out the future of BlondeHair’dGirl as a brand, I wanted to make sure that I could travel and be in the audience of any given fashion week near by. So, when I moved to Daegu, South Korea of August 2015 the plan was to attend fashion weeks in Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan; and it happened!

I have received several inquiries of how was I able to attend as a fashion blogger. Well, here is how it happened.

These are the steps I took to receive invites and press pass from the fashion weeks’ organizer.

**NOTE: these are the steps that I took, they are not the “by the book” steps, but this is what granted me access as a foreigner and fashion blogger to sit in the audience.
  1. Research upcoming Fashion Weeks either near or far

  2. Fill out the media/press registration

  3. Locate the designers and schedule for the event

  4. Select the designer/designers of your interest and send inquiring email to their designated pr(public relations)/press personnel

  5. Wait patiently for a response from the fashion week organizer and/or the designers themselves

You may have read those steps and feel as though it is very vague. I have found that the most important thing to do is know what you are looking for within the content you want to present to your audience. Once you have discovered what information you want to put out there then selecting your designers will be a breeze!

The KEY to being selected is making your brand or company standout in your emails because these designers and pr reps can’t see your face or hear your voice they can only read your words.

So, with that being said; this was a quick overview of how to attend.

Hollaaaaaa!!
