Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. Incase you are not to familiar with me, I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to as always , welcome you to my latest blog post What’s in The Book of Styles? So if you are ready , let’s get started , giving you a small glimpse inside The Book of Styles.
What would be the concept for The Book of Styles , started out as a promotional photo shoot with Photogs Extraordinaire , team Abe and Tanika. I was meeting up with them on a sunny day in Manhattan NY , to do a shoot of me and then client 1st Lady of G-Unit Precious Paris. She was about to be a cast member of Love & Hip Hop NY . We were meeting up to get some shots of me working with her , not knowing that the shots would become the cover art for what was to become JMADDD THE BOOK OF STYLES.
It was this shot above that would almost a year or two later become the actual factual cover of the book . Ok so there is a small back story on how the book would come about. Fast Forward a few years or perhaps a year , later Abe and I are having a convo on ways to showcase my work other than INSTAGRAM for other potential clients to see , about two days later, this was the result .
A full scale style picture book , that showcased all my concepts and styles that I had done up to that point , a way for people or clients to see what it would be like working with me even if you didn’t hire me to work with you in person. You could get an idea of how I think fashionably. Keep in mind though that this book is a few yrs old so it covers looks that I did when I first started up to a certain point. As time goes on , my skill level continues to improve , but even my older looks still look current and timeless , cause I tend to try to create timeless style and less trendy.
I tend to be inspired by the unobvious and in the book , there is a whole entire section dedicated to how my love of comics inspires me to put together fashion forward looks , for both men and women.
Im also big on showing you how to capture celebrity style as well , so included in the Fashionable inspiration section is ways to capture celebrity style, specially those whose style really stands out to me. From there , the book also covers women’s wear .
Often enough when I style women’s wear , I try to create looks that almost anyone can pull off and I tend to go over the top fly , often enough when creating these looks still to this day , I like to take it straight past sexy to just plain cool. This is just a small glimpse of the women’s wear section. From there I cover men’s wear as well.
Inside The Book of Styles, when it comes to men’s wear I show you how to both dress up and dress down , because often enough not everyone knows how to dress on both ends of the spectrum , because when it comes down to it you need to know both , it always comes in handy.
Well there it is , in all the years that this book has been out , I’ve never really given a true look inside. From the making to the fashions. The Book of Styles is currently still available on http://www.magcloud.com key word jmaddd. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been What’s in the book of styles ? That’s it for now, until the next time IM GONE.
