An American Fashion label that specializes in luxurious goods for men and women, The House of Fenty Baudelaire Parker is taking over the fashion industry day by day. Founded in 2012, this elegant label consist of three lines: Fenty, Baudelaire and Parker. My favorite line is “Parker” containing high-end handmade gowns, specializing in luxury items only. Every piece of garment is high quality and sewn with extreme detail from the designer himself, Nathanael Alessandroni.
Mr. Alessandroni uses his gifts and multi talents to hand make garments. Summer of 2013 Alessandroni started to design for celebrities such Pia Toscano, Darcy LePier, Mel B, Nikki Leonti, Ashanti, and Ivy Levan.
“I’ve been designing since June of this year outside of Costume Design and these are my accomplishments so far in the fashion industry…Never give up on your dreams…it all starts with you…can’t wait to show you who’s next! Very excited for the future of Fenty Baudelaire Parker” Alessandroni stated on his Instagram post from a week ago. As The House of Fenty Baudelaire Parker grows, Street Intell will keep you updated on their every move as they succeed within the fashion industry.

Dope new artist out of LA, Alejandro Chal.
Get into what sounds like a heavily 90s inspired mix.
Lost in the Shadows so far is my personal favorite, I can easily see it being amplified in some DJ’s club mix or bringing life to any haute runway performance. Anyways enjoy for yourself and leave your comments below.

For decades, African-Americans (and other races) have struggled with the unanswered questions and frustration of managing their natural textured tresses. From the days of hot combs and texturizers to modern Dominican blow outs and harsh chemical relaxers the challenge of taming the curl has been something sought after by many people. In the past 6 or 7 years there has been a growing desire for many African-Americans in becoming more conscious and self-aware. The beauty that blossomed from that is the push to learn how to take better care and maintain basic beauty and health regimens in organic and holistic manners. Out of that birthed what many know as the “Natural Hair movement” or what we refer to it as the “Natural Hair revival.” Spreading across the US, in major cities like New York, Philadelphia, Houston and Atlanta, natural hair enthusiasts have been popping up all over the place. Coincidentally, it is certainly nice to see that the natural hair revival has made its way back into the nations capital..
Just about every where you go now you can see aisles and shelves of hair care products lined in stores dedicated to helping grow, enhance or straighten natural hair. Now the importance of having these products is good but knowing how to use them is the real challenge. However not to worry there are certified brave souls (natural hair bloggers/vloggers) that are kind enough to test out these products and provide a review. That however can be tricky but to take it a step further there are certified natural hair stylists, yes we said it, stylists that specialize in treating your kinky, coiled, and curly tresses. What a beautiful thing to have options!
Speaking of options it is nice to see more people taking note to the importance of hair and health education for people of color who choose to wear their hair in its natural state. The District’s Natural hair community is budding, with tons of different natural hair shows, expos, and events popping up; it is easily becoming a black woman’s [and man’s] dream. Being born with kinky, coiled, or even curly hair doesn’t come with an instruction manual so it’s comforting to know that many people are committed to writing up that Draft.
Another gem from the futuristic queen of soul Ms. Janelle Monae!!!
“Even if it makes others uncomfortable, I will love who I am.”
We have fallen in love with another British songstress.
Laura Mvula is giving us big tunes flavored with a delightful accent similar to that of the late high priestess of soul, Ms. Nina Simone. Can you dig the vibe? Well, head over to iTunes and download her album: Sing to the Moon.
Trust us you’ll want to hear more, especially with featured tracks like “green garden”, “diamonds” and “she”.
