As twenty-somethings in the creative industry, we find that there is no structured path, when it comes to securing our dream job. Yes university does help, but it is the first step because we all know when you graduate, the real work begins. Yet somehow we push the fact that it may take until the end of time to achieve our goals to the back of our minds, as we dive into the pool of free labour and uncertainty. But Cherelle Brown, Accessories Designer and Founder of unisex bag line IAMQING gives us hope, showing that we have the power to create our own opportunities instead of waiting for them to approach us which is very much what we believe in. As we style a few looks with her latest collection Cherelle tells us how much family plays a big part in supporting your dream. For she believes that taking risks and remaining humble are a few keys to gaining success.
It has been a while since Derek and I dropped a big fashion post on you, so what better time to treat you all than during London Fashion Week. For this one we have teamed up with a great brand that you may or may not be familiar with, Pocket Square Clothing. Dedicated to both timeless and contemporary design, PSC does not limit it self to just the accessory in its title with a range of bow ties and neck ties vast enough to please even the fussiest of customer. It is their attention to detail and great eye for design, be it minimalist or extravagant, that ultimately shines through in the quality of every individual piece that they make. Because of this, it was easy for Derek and I to put together pocket square focused looks. Read on and see exactly what we put together.
Usually with product features on Y&Y, we tend to review while they’re still new and base it off a week’s worth of usage. This time with this backpack, it’s a little different – I’ve been wearing it for almost two months and for someone who owns over 5 bags, it’s fair to say this is by far the best one I’ve owned. It’s perfect for my lifestyle, always on the go and always comfortable even carrying a crap load of stuff (Macbook Pro, SLR and gym gear). As always, I remained behind the lens for the shoot, Derek – the leader of the Y&Y’s internal #teamimageting stepped into the frame. More on the reverse.
