Tavares Strachan Brings Space Bombers to Paris With CIFF

SPACE MAN: Tavares Strachan is getting into fashion. The Bahamian artist has created a capsule collection and installation of six bomber jackets showing in Paris.
“I never thought I’d be producing something that people would wear,” said Strachan at a preview of the installation at the Crillon. “I don’t see this as fashion to me, this is sculpture.”
Branded under the name B.A.S.E.C., for the Bahamian Aerospace and Sea Exploration Center Strachan created after undertaking cosmonaut training a few years ago, the project is staged by edgy trade fair CIFF under the tagline “The Northwind Trilogy.”
Curated by Neville Wakefield, the three-part project was unveiled at Art Basel Miami in December before hitting Paris and will head to CIFF in Copenhagen at the end of the month.
The jackets were created in collaboration with the artist’s mother, and have a social as well as commercial ambition. Crafted by local women, money raised from their sale will be used to fund training initiatives for women in the island nation and inject resources into boosting local production.
Fewer than 600 jackets will be produced in total, and they will be offered to select retailers worldwide that can support the installation concept. They will sell for around $ 2,000

Rasheeda Frost Brings Her Son Karter Frost To Work After Kirk Gets Slammed By Fan – Check Out The Photo With The Two Of Them

Rasheeda Frost brought her and Kirk’s son, Karter Frost to work. She shared a photo with the two of them on social media to show the little man to her fans and followers. Here’s the pic.

‘Look who came to work with mommy today ❤😍 @karter_frost said he wanted to chill wit mommy at Pressed today! & yes my Red Distressed Long Jacket & CR I’m A Star Bootie Available online & in-store! 😘’ Rasheeda captioned her photo.

One commenter said ‘Aww he looks just like his mommy there is nothing in the world like a mother and son bond.’

Another follower wrote ‘To Rasheeda the boss chick I hear u want to name the new building that u s and Kirk have I think it should be called rasheek Kay’s longe or kaysara for u the first one and the second one for Kirk’s name.’

Not too long ago, a woman who goes by the name Egypt Angelina met Kirk Forst and decided to disrespect him.

The woman kept saying the following words in the video that she took of herself and Kirk:

‘Look at Kirk cheating a$ $ , Look at Kirk cheating a$ $ , look I am on him. As you all know by now, she was referring to the affair he had with Jasmine Washington — the mother of his son Kannon.

Alexa Chung Brings Thanksgiving to London

THE BRIT TAKE: Alexa Chung brought a taste of New York to London with a Thanksgiving celebration to kick off the holiday season. “I’m calling it Chungsgiving — I’ve taken Thanksgiving, as if the British haven’t done enough to plunder,” Chung said, while getting ready at the penthouse of the London Edition Hotel, where she hosted the dinner.
“I’ve lived in New York and experienced quite a few Thanksgivings over there. I never had any family living with me, so what the holiday meant to me was bringing your friends together and making a makeshift family of all the expats floating around.” Thursday evening’s makeshift family included Serafina Sama of Isa Arfen, Suki Waterhouse and Poppy Jamie of Pop & Suki, Jack Guinness, Jeanne Damas, Pixie Geldof and Camille Charriere.
“I’ve missed how Thanksgiving in New York used to feel. It’s the one time of the year when it’s not a religious holiday, it’s just the beginning of the holiday season, where you can celebrate it with your mates, get drunk, feel cozy,” added Chung.
Everyone certainly got cozy. The evening kicked off with rounds of American whiskey punch, followed by a turkey dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert. To top it off,

Gladys Knight, Ledisi, Donnie McClurkin, CeCe Winans and Mary Mary came together at the American Music Awards Tuesday to pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.

via Billboard:

Following a special video homage to the legendary Queen of Soul that focused on the artist’s long history as a host, performer and winner at the AMAs, Knight took the stage to perform Franklin’s drawn-out interpretation of “Amazing Grace.” Then, minister and gospel singer McClurkin relieved Knight to perform “Climb Higher Mountains,” which was used as the recessional song at her funeral. 

From there, gospel legend Winans delivered a rousing rendition of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” followed by R&B/jazz singer Ledisi belting an invigorating “How I Got Over.” Contemporary gospel duo Mary Mary closed things out with a backing ensemble-assisted “Old Landmark.” 

“What an amazing night!” was all host Tracie Ellis-Ross could say in review after.
