Dear Pennies & Pens,
de la Pen was created in June of 2010 and premiered to the public in August of 2010. As de la Pen approaches its two year anniversary, I’m working on expanding the site which is why I’m changing the tagline from “The Fashion & Style of the Pen” to “All Pen Everything”, I’ll be adding bloggers to contribute but all content is chosen by me. However, I wanted a tagline that encompasses more than my personal eye for style but still includes my unique vision as a blogger/editor.
de la Pen features only the best international and multicultural fashion, style, beauty, and accessories. All articles are a letter written to my “Pennies and Pens” (readers) to expose them to the most talented designers, fabulous style, fresh face models, cool new beauty products and accessories, and updates on projects I’m working on.
de la Pen has allowed me to cover some of the most prestigious international events in fashion such as, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York which includes my attendance and coverage of The Couture Council Luncheon Honoring Valentino, the Daphne Guinness Press Preview at the Museum at FIT, and shows for designers Perry Ellis, Zang Toi, Christian Siriano, Ruffian, and more. I have also covered Style.uz Art Week in Tashkent, Uzbekistan featuring designers like Domenico Vacca, Balmain, and Igor Chapurin. Last year, I also visited Charleston, SC to cover Charleston Fashion Week’s emerging designer competition.
In October of 2010, I Co-Founded The Network with my business partner, @CachaLopez. The Network is the premier creative talent agency for emerging ethnic artists because we only represent the most talented, unique, and buzz worthy clients. Our current client roster includes, models: Ashli Lewis, Jazmin Brown, Kiyauna Kingsberry, and Rosario de la Cruz, Fashion Stylist & Personal Style Blogger, Paris Hatcher (Sexy Meets Classy); Make-Up Artist & Beauty Blogger, Adrienne Caffey (AC Kiss & Make-Up), Videographer/Director, Addison Wright (Crion Lab), and R&B/Pop Artist Peia Alexander. The Network provides management, branding, digital and social media marketing, and public relations services.
Now that I’m juggling my duties a Digital PR Girl, Fashion Blogger, and Co-Owner of The Network, I can’t post as often as I’d like but don’t worry this means you’ll get more quality content. In essence, stay tuned for an amazing 2012 filled with gifted designers, the most beautiful emerging models, the latest beauty and accessories, as well as updates on The Network.
And there it is. de la Pen…All Pen Everything.
