I am so late with posting this event. I just been running around and getting to all my new content. I had the chance to attend The Street Etiquette Event for the release of their short film called " SLUMFLOWER " in collaboration with VSCO. Here is a little about the film below and also check out a few of the pictures I took at the event.
I also attend the event with my good friends Derek Sturdivant filmography ( Zhetut.com ) and John Woody blogger of ( Malecritique.com ) and also music artist B Hawk Snipes ( soundcloud.com/jusbhawk )
"Slumflower started out as a seed idea that we had about two years ago, about the misconceptions formed about public housing. The story is centered around a 10-year old boy finding beauty and growth in the midst of concrete.
Growing up watching video like Spike Lee’s “Clockers” (1995) or Nas’ “Nas is like” (1999) I’m positive SLUMFLOWER wasn’t the image urban planner Robert Moses had in mind while planning the design and placement of public housing during 1950s New York City.
People tend to say that fashion, though artistically driven, is simply surface and incapable of expressing anything socially or politically mind bending – that the fashion lens puts a hyper focus on just looks and consumerism. We like to think an editorial like this provides an alternative to that idea."
