I met Valissa through Niko (see #FF 011) but now see her everywhere. This flame haired girl is ubiquitous. Mad talent and endless charm is propelling her to stratospheric heights. Her down to earthness (my word) and authenticity is what we adore about her. No matter how high her star soars she is still spinning the soundtrack of our lives on earth.
Well it’s been a little while since I posted a 5 Preview animation (blame it on fashion week) but I wanted to post the last two. This is Ross & Patrick in 5Preview Onesies. I don’t know if they refer to them as onesies but we do!
Adrian sent me a video that he worked on as Creative Director called GenderFucker starring Richie Moo and asked if I might put it on StyleDefined NYC. I pretty much never put up content other than my own and then never from total strangers. But there was something about the video and Adrian’s email that just made sense to me… now Adrian is a contributor to StyleDefined NYC and they’re both part of my amazing NYFW team!
A little more about them:

I arrived in NYC close to two years ago. Since then I focused on meeting people that shared my love for the fashion industry. As a student of Psychology back in my hometown of Puerto Rico, I was fascinated by the people I was lucky to meet. I found the inspiration necessary to collaborate with different artist and began working on projects immediately. I am inspired by the unity of Eastern and Western culture. Creative director of the Gender Fucker project. I love the industry and I want to push the limits of it in tasteful ways.
What I love most about NYC?
It is full of wonder and at times what feels like magic. You work hard to stay here because you feel as if you couldn’t do this anywhere but here. It’s the social center of this planet. It’s either Tokyo or NYC you know what I mean?

What I love most about NYC?
This is the place where if you really want it, you can make your dreams come true. It is the place that makes you feel like a star the moment you arrive.
Sophia Lamar: Actor, nightlife celebrity and one of the most influential NYC downtown personalities. Life is always a little more exciting, a little more adventurous and a whole lot more glamorous when she’s in the room.
Sophia, je t’adore
I met B HAWK SNIPES during NYFW a few seasons back. Every day I saw him he was completely turned out and I’d snap his picture for NYC Style on the site. The fact that he’s ridiculously adorable and photogenic inspired me to reach out to him for my collaboration with 5Preview. I could have made several animations from his shoot – he gave me such a variety of looks. I think this one’s pretty sweet though!

I’m not exactly sure how or when I met designer/diva/nightlife queen Domonique. I just remember when she invited me to her fashion show during brunch at Yotel and I thought this girl has crazy positive energy and mad creativity! When she arrived for the 5Preview shoot she came with flowers in her hair. But not braided in all hippy dippy but more like a crown. Or a halo. She made me think of the little prayer cards I received from the nuns as a child…kind of like the Virgin Mary. But not…

My name is Domonique Echeverria and I am an upcoming costumer and avant garde here in NYC and SF.. .for those of you who know me, I am sorry for my sins (not really), for those of you who don’t here’s a bit of background information that might prepare you for whats about to happen; I began living the life of a gypsy glam rocker drag queen trapped in a real woman’s body here in Bay Area for 25yrs ago and now live in glamorous New York City hosting events with fantastical nightlife creatures and making creations for fellow muses. Inspired by Erte, Liza Minnelli, past lives, glamour, and performers from all walks of life I strive to grasp beauty and magic from everyone I meet and work with. . . and with a nod to the past and a wink to the future I bring modern innovation to extraordinary people. You can catch me every sunday at Greenhouse for VANDAM and every first wednesday at the Bowery Electric for Witch Disco www.domoniqueecheverria.blogspot.com
I recently created a series of animations for the brilliant line 5Preview based out of Sweden. We focused on their t-shirts and instead of models I decided to ask several of my fabulous friends to come and play with me! Here’s Abigail and Emily aka The Wanderlust Girls. If you’re at a great party, at a fashion show at Milk or in a focus group asking your opinion on a certain label’s styles you’ll find these two!
Or like they say: Some fashion. Some partying. Lots of bad jokes. We love the East Village.
