long time since i have last blogged about YOUNGBROKENFAMOUS. SOOOOOOO much has changed since we've last talked!
well, first and foremost, YBF has lost a few members, but it is for the best! i finally have a collective of people that i love, respect and trust....nothing but creativity and positivity. it was sad to let people go, but everything has worked for the best ever since....
i had an amazing opportunity to be a part of the second season of my favorite show on hbo HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA. i play the role of IVAN, co-owner of a clothing line called NEANDERTHAL NEW YORK...talk about my life coming full circle. check it out every sunday at 1030 on hbo!
i have come up with an amazing collection that i have called TEENAGE WASTELAND.....it was inspired by the punk revolution in England, and anything involving rock and roll culture and all around bad-assness. ANARCHY. REVOLUTION. RELIGION. OCCULT. you know how i do!
i did a bunch of planning to shoot the perfect look book, but i have learned that if you want something done the right way you've gotta do it yourself. so i woke up one morning, took my camera and two prettiest and most inspiring girlfriends, Jessica and E-money, and shot them in the collection. I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER! i took all the best photos and turned them into a GENIUS coffee table book. it is the perfect representation of the essence of YOUNGBROKENFAMOUS.
i recently met an amazing guy, who inspires me more than anyone i have ever met. he's got an EPIC taste for fashion, and is studying to be a doctor. being with someone who is trying to do something POSITIVE with their life has pushed me to make YOUNGBROKENFAMOUS pop off. (you amaze me boy)
AND FINALLY ... THE BEST NEWS!!!!!!!!
I WILL BE SELLING AT LADYFAGS POP SOUK! it is a giant event being held at HIRO BALLROOM where designers, artists, and everyone in between will sell clothes, art and promote positivity and creativity! I WILL BE SELLING OUR ENTIRE COLLECTION along with ALL OF OUR CHANEL/BAD RELIGION TEES! I HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOU THERE. TIME TO GO WORK IN LIVINGROOM/SWEATSHOP AND BANG OUT SOME TEES TO PUT IN YOUR HANDS.

Meet Jenna Perry. I worked with her for two years at my old salon, and she taught me so much of what I know now. She is such an amazing hairstylist and has had a major impact on my life. she's worked with so many amazing people in the industry, and does lots of editorial + magazine work. Jenna is stellar and inspires me to take pride in my career. Check out her tumblr HERE!
WE LOVE YOU JENNA!

In case you didn't know, this is my best friend Jessica. She's a rare kinda beautiful. Love her to pieces. Her look was killer and I was so stoked to take pictures of her tonight!
In other news, a lot has been changing for me over these past few days. I decided to quit my job, and i couldn't feel more relieved to be out of that hell hole of a salon i was working at! This has given me a great opportunity to sit back and really figure everything in my life out. I've come up with some amazing new concepts for shirts that i will be working on very soon. I can't wait to show you all!

Meet one of the baddest girls I know, Shayna, also known as Junglepussy. If Lil Kim + Grace Jones + Lil Wayne had a condomless three way, she would totally be their
mistake baby. Her look inspires me so much and we have every intention of using her in future shoots. This girl is so fucking major!

It's been a crazy week for us. thursday, Miao came to the salon to get a new hairdo. She is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met + her new hair is so fucking RIGHTEOUS! Jessica and shawn picked me up from work for some St Patty's day drinking followed by late night breakfast. the following morning, Shawn and I did a photoshoot for the HBO show How To Make It In America, where I made a new model friend, Oona Chanel. Of course we hit it off, she's a Libra! Everything is wonderful right now! i'm getting things ready to start selling our shirts, so keep your eyes peeled for more info!
