World-renowned supermodel, Nini Amerlise, is pleased to announce she recently completed an exciting project – modeling virtually for Creaky Joints & Michael Kuluva’s brand-new Tumbler and Tipsy Collection.

Nini Amerlise is a stunningly beautiful International Supermodel, nine-time award-winning motivational speaker, author, and CEO/Founder of the non-profit organization, We Are Royals Inc.  Amerlise consistently demonstrates a high level of drive, consistency, and a dynamic ability to adapt to her environment – skills that have helped to catapult her into stardom.

Since March, COVID-19 has launched varying virtual avenues and Nini Amerlise proudly shares the We Are Royals platform with Michael Kuluva.  The two connected after Amerlise won season 1 of Supermodel Canada, with Kuluva taking the role as Amerlise’s annual booker for New York Fashion Week and for his own fashion campaign, Tumbler and Tipsy Virtual Presentation S/S 21 Collection – The Newest Normal.  This virtual presentation is a collaboration with Creaky Joints, a notable arthritis organization, with its premier collection viewing party being held on September 16th, 2020 at 8PM EST.

Nini Amerlise, who is compassionate towards Michael Kuluva’s diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, sees virtual platforms as the ultimate chance to advocate for social distancing and limit the spread of COVID-19 – all while serving pizazz without making any apologies.  For example, Amerlise has done previous virtual modeling work with www.virtualfashionshow.net, a platform that helped to save NYFS.  Through her incredible success, Amerlise has defied all odds, while recognizing and being respectful of social distancing during the global pandemic.

Expressive fashion house Sprayground, the most influential streetwear brand known for its thought-provoking and innovative designs, has teamed up with two of the most prolific artists, Ron English and Florian Reinhardt (EXIT ART) to launch two exclusive collections at Art Basel 2022.

Ron English’s highly coveted collection features 13 beautiful, eclectic, unique designs, with a high dose of energy through its vivid colors and patterns paired with Popaganda’s smiley face logo. These designs include an eccentric zebra-patterned elephant handbag, vibrant poodle pouchette, futuristic rabbit backpack, and Vincent Van Gogh-esque landscape backpack. This collection speaks to its audience in colorful inspirations with vibrant and bright pinks, teals, reds, yellows, and blues. The iconic smiley face can be seen on Sprayground’s well known bear bag, carry on, three additional backpacks, mini duffle, smiley sunflower tote, and hoodies in black, neon pink, and a vibrant blue. The Sprayground x Ron English collection will be showcased for the first time during a private event at The Museum of Graffiti, Wynwood, on December 1.783A8080

Sprayground’s collection with EXIT ART features Reinhardt’s signature eye-catching snapshots of exit signs on Sprayground’s new handbag style, duffle bag, and backpack. Reinhardt fantasizes of freedom and dreams of new beginnings, creating these vivid scenes of signs that provide hints of a way out. Each bag has an explosion of snapshots Reinhardt captured in eclectic and vibrant colors paired with Spraygrounds iconic and collectible art-piece – the Shark Mouth design. This collection will launch at the Rudolf Budja gallery on December 1, at an exclusive event sponsored by Rolls Royce.

Sprayground first captured worldwide attention when the ‘Hello My Name’ backpack debuted over 10 years ago. Sprayground founder, David BenDavid (DBD), had high hopes to create a brand that he felt represented his childhood and upbringing. Exposed to streetwear, art and a variety of cultures from a young age, DBD took all this inspiration and turned it into creativity that is now admired worldwide.

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

54 Kingdoms Unveils Its Final World Cup Collection: Forward Ever, Backward Never!

The 2022 FIFA World Cup just kicked off in Qatar, where Africa is being represented by Cameroon, Ghana, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia.

For most Africans, the tournament is a platform that reinforces continental unity, helping bridge the gap between Africans on the continent, and Diasporans globally. Since 2010, when South Africa became the first African country to host the tournament, 54 Kingdoms embarked on a creative journey of designing collections inspired by the United African vision engineered by the honorable Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Forward Ever, Backward Never is the final World Cup collection by 54 Kingdoms as the company reaches the last phase of its unity design blueprint. The blueprint, which is primarily inspired by Pan-African giants, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Marcus Garvey ― aims to give the continent a larger vision of itself via four main themes: Educate, Unite, Build and Progress. Each collection is tied to a theme dating back to Homecoming in 2010 (Educate), Score for Unity in 2014 (Unite), and Goal 54 in 2018 (Build).

“This is a bittersweet moment for us. As storytellers, one of the hardest things is to write an ending for any story, and unfortunately the end has come for our World Cup collection series. This creative journey started with inspiration from Dr. Nkrumah and will end with him. Hence, a collection paying homage to one of his profound statements, Forward Ever, Backward Never” ~ Kwaku Awuah, 54 Kingdoms President.

In the Progress phase, the Forward Ever, Backward Never (FEBN) design seeks to echo Nkrumah’s larger vision of a united and developed Africa free of any form of colonial rule. However, ‘Forward Ever, Backward Never’ also means Africa shouldn’t bemoan its past misdeeds all the time; we should forge ahead, but when a similar challenge resurfaces, we look back and remind ourselves that we shouldn’t make the same mistake again.

Throughout this tournament, Forward Ever, Backward Never is a reminder to Africa’s representatives to push forward even when it seems impossible, and never look back!

The Forward Ever, Backward Never is a limited edition collection available for pre-orders on November 23, 2022 with expected shipment starting on December 9, 2022. More details will be updated on the 54 Kingdoms website soon!

Sprayground – the rebellious, artistically designed backpack and apparel brand, is unveiling a new backpack design inspired by the tales of love and friendship throughout the legendary series of Sailor Moon. 

This official collaboration with Sailor Moon features Sailor Moon herself in vibrant colors overlaying a starry night – and (of course) the iconic Shark Mouth that Sprayground is known and loved for. The graphics in this collaboration explore the magic of the legendary manga series featuring a visually stunning starry night background for Sailor Moon to stand out by. 

David BenDavid, founder and creative director of Sprayground, ensured this design was nothing short of eccentric by creating such a large portrait design backpack for the series. Sprayground has made a name for themselves in the fashion industry for their artsy, unique, fun and elevated versions of a regular backpack. All Sprayground backpacks are complete with a separate laptop compartment and a conveniently-placed velour interior pouch, as well as some fun secret pockets! 

As with all Sprayground backpacks, the Sailor Moon collaboration will be a limited release and will never again be produced when – not if, when – it sells out. This backpack will make anyone feel like a sailor scout!

Retailing at $65 USD, the new collection is available to shop now at www.sprayground.com. For more news and exclusive first looks, head to @sprayground.
