Owner and founder of Avenue 33, Rance Loftsgard, didn't need to move out of the Midwest area to chase his dreams and launch a successfully retailed men's accessories business. Avenue 33 is currently carried in 10 retail stores from Singapore, Springfield and all the way to NYC and will be featured in British GQ this winter. His products will be available at Dappermen, the first holiday market for men in St. Louis on Friday November 17th @6:30 at The Wheelhouse Downtown.
South Saint Louis- inspired Chatillon Lux carries handcrafted fragrances, aftershaves and balms that tell a history of their own and will be brought to you next November 17 at the first holiday market directed to men in St. Louis, Dappermen. All of the fragrances are inspired in the history of South Saint Louis. Owner and Creative Director, Shawn Maher takes pride in the quality and uniqueness of each fragrance.
The St. Louis fashion community, thus far, has been very kind and welcoming to me. It is really difficult to be noticed and remembered in a creative art based community. The Pins and Needles win has defiantly helped me in my career by getting noticed, connecting me with the right talented people, and overall throwing my name out into the world.
Next Friday September 8, The Rhythm The Rebel and many more local bands will bring YO! MTV Raps back to life at The Ready Room starting at 8pm. The tribute show will take you back to the 90's with local artists covering Public Enemy, Tribe Called Quest and many more rap legends who performed on Yo! MTV Raps.
The advent of YO! MTV Raps in the late 1980s was crucial to the spread of hip-hop around the world. Through MTV Europe, MTV Asia, and MTV Latino, African-American and Latino style and sound was instantly available to millions of people across the globe. This helped to create a worldwide appreciation and interest in the hip-hop scene.
