He works for a fashion retail company and I design accessories, swimwear, underwear, shoes, and yes, fragrances!Aside from that, he is also a stylist and a contributing fashion editor.Aside from fashion, he love traveling, music, art, film, photography, cultures, and advertising.When asked to describe his style: “There is a word I coined for myself—”avant-gardien”—it’s a combination of being experimental and being the advance guard (so to speak) when it comes to sartorial choices.

Rihanna’s bronze bikini reportedly costs almost $1,000.
The singer has been spending the holidays in her home country of Barbados, where she’s been spotted enjoying the beach in a variety of glamorous swimsuits.
Recently she stepped out in a metallic piece, which HollywoodLife claims is a Charlie by Matthew Zink Bronze Crystal Deco Bikini, costing $990.
According to the website, only ten have been produced, making it a very rare item for fans of the brand to get their hands on.
Luckily Rihanna is such a staple in the fashion world, so it’s no wonder she managed to bag one of the exclusive pieces.
Accessorised with 2,638 Swarovski crystals and featuring a shimmering bronze material, the bikini really made the 25-year-old stand out as she sunbathed and swam. [FB]
