The year is 2014 and the strides made for women's rights and gender equality are at an all-time high. But while the suffragettes of the 1900s and the bra-burners of the '60s have already broken down major boundaries, there's nevertheless another struggle that women must arm themselves for: the battle with biology. Hailing from Sri Lanka and raised in Long Beach, Tanya Selvaratnam is a writer, producer, theater artist, and activist who, like many modern women, grew up on the principles of chasing her dreams and of building a career before settling down. It was during her painful pursuit of motherhood, however, that she realized the biological clock doesn't wait for feminism. More»

Upon first meeting Yuvi, you can’t help but notice his impeccable style and attention to detail. Everything from his scarf placement to his skillful layering is street style snap worthy. I swung by the Men in Cities studio a couple weeks ago to check out their new collection and to hear more about the fresh new fashion startup. Their offices, located in Soho, is a perfect embodiment of the brand-- both eclectic and cultured. I was intrigued and left inspired by the story; the story of an accessories designer who had a bigger plan in mind. More»
Cyndi Ramirez and Adam Fulton are a match made in marketing heaven.

The goal? To connect members of this community with the brands and industries they influence. From fashion and food, to art and skateboarding, this DUMBO-based biz is breaking down barriers between exclusive events and the elusive crowd that agencies actually want there. More»

If you've been going out in New York for a while, you've most likely encountered Scott Lipps at some point. Despite his nonchalant appearance, he's one of the hardest working people in NYC. Apart from owning ONE Model Management, which represents everyone from Karolina Kurkova to A$AP Rocky, and drumming for Courtney Love, he manages to find time to be at every major party with a camera in hand. He documents his adventures on his PopLipps photo blog, which was released as a book this week. With all the success, he still manages to stay humble ("After a show, if by any stretch of the imagination I can bring somebody a little happiness by giving them a drumstick and taking an Instagram photo with them, why wouldn't I spend two minutes doing that?"), which is why we love running into him at events. We finally had the chance to sit down with him to talk about his favorite NYC restaurants, parties, and much more. More»

Rico The Zombie, A.K.A Zombie Boy), the tattooed MUGLER muse who took the runways by storm after being discovered by former creative director of the brand, Nicola Formichetti. This season, however, Genest took a break from the whirlwind of NYFW to focus on his newest pursuit—music. More»
