New Era “INTRODUCING” opened its doors last night. The show consisted of works by several creatives who used a New Era 59 Fifty fitted caps as a canvas or subject. Local artist Alexander Perez made it to the top 3 finalist of the United States and some parts of Canada. The last 80 submissions have been selected as part of the traveling gallery and made part of the limited edition New Era INTRODUCING book. Don’t forget, one piece of work will be awarded a $10000 grant to push start his or hers creative career (or pay some student loans, LOL!).

New Era Miami hosted local artist LEBO for their hat release collaboration event. There were only 50 hand painted hats available. My favorite was the blue one with the the embossed wings LEBO logo and hand painted brim. Miami Heat’s Dale McLean and Dexter Pittman, Dan Le Batard of ESPN and 790 The Ticket and Darren Brass of Miami Ink stopped by to show support.
Live art installations complete are always interesting. S.L.A.T.E. at Magic (SLATE) showcased KREASHUN doing a live installation compilation of graphics, stencils and paint. KREASHUN’s duo Monte Montgomery and Jfeather were nice enough to stop and let us take a couple of photos. Visit their site HERE to learn more about them.
I cant even begin to tell you how dope this installation was. It’s one of those things you had to be there to really understand. Jeff Staple has been a pivotal part of our street culture. JS brings us season after season some of the must sought after goods on our culture so it was only fitting for him to curate what’s become “THE HOLLY GRAIL” of goods for lots of street culture enthusiast. By the way his booth was DOPE too!
Is that a bottle of Staple water Jeff’s holding in his hands?

Last night I attended the Furor Moda Fashion show at The STAGE during the RAW:natural born artist The Blend show. For my misfortune I got the event and noticed I left my camera battery at home… I had no idea what I was going to do.
So I started to take some photos to with my iPhone 4. I wasn’t getting anywhere… Then I saw Karla Garcia from KarGarOhhSnap.com. After we both had a laugh about my situation she agreed to send me photos from the event. Thank you Karla!
Furor Moda is owned by Tatiana Torres. With creative make-up and perfect styling the show took place promptly at 10:45 pm. Annie Vazquez, Kelly Saks, Amanda Del Duca, Daniela Ramirez and Steffy were the featured local fashion bloggers on the runway. RAW showcased all generes of art under one roof. There was something for everyone. Here are some images from the show.
