Fashion Bandits Away!

So today I helped Kushinda out with her photoshoot for an upcoming magazine. It was so crazy! I had to meet Kushinda @ her house and then I had to go to the showroom to pick up the clothing and shoes (which were soo heavy)! My back is still killing me =(. But overall the shoot went well thanks to Zeko the Photographer and Tommy(Model).  The first half of the shoot was more Avant Garde , but when we were ready to shoot the other half, which was a more urban look it started raining. Here are a few pictures below!

Shops in NYC you should check out- aNY OLD IRON

So Kushinda and Yasin bought me to this store and I found everything in here to be interesting.  One brand that spoke to me the most was Red Mutha.
Here is a bio about the store, this was taken directly from the website. 
About Any Old Iron
From across the pond and to Lower Manhattan, a new music inspired menswear shop ‘Any Old Iron’ opens in the L.E.S.
New York, NY , The first retail store of its kind to hit Manhattan, Any Old Iron will specialize in selling rare and UK-specific menswear . The majority of the collections featured are exclusive to Any Old Iron and include labels like; Sir Tom Baker’s rock and roll suiting, Bolongaro Trevor’s moody-mod inspired menswear and Child of the Jago from collaborative designers Barnzley, and Joe Corre (Son of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren). The shop will also sell exciting and edgy contemporary labels as Fred Perry, Fred Perry Raf Simons, Electronic Poet, B-Store, Unconditional, London Undercover, S***R shoes, and Red Mutha.
Any Old Iron is the brainchild of designer/stylist, Andrew Clancey and arts-entrepreneur, Christopher Melton. The shop’s name is rooted in the olden cry of a scrap man collecting metal with his horse and cart, and also hearkens to Clancey’s family scrap metal business which was founded in 1872. “Any Old Iron,” is also an Old English music hall song which references a young man’s sartorial dandyism – a quality that is distinctly English, and, ever-present in the shop’s design and the legion of British designers featured. In addition to exclusive collections, rare and sought-after antiques will also be for sale.
