Mens Fashion - From Fig Leaves To Designer Suits

Mens Fashion – From Fig Leaves to Designer Suits

As early as 50,000 years ago, our ancestral Homo sapiens used whatever was in their surroundings to shield themselves from the harsh climate. Anthropologists have unearthed human fossils from the Arctic Circle and saw evidence of men’s clothing made of fur and animal skin. In retrospect, in regions where the temperature was much warmer, evidences of men’s clothes made primarily, of leaves and grass were discovered. These were used to cover primitive man from the dust and heat. At that time, men’s clothing was nothing more that an ingenious invention borne from necessity. As centuries passed though, men’s clothing assumed […]

Venus Reimagined as the New Divine Feminine – Art Exhibit at Shakespeare’s Fulcrum

Who is Venus? She is a symbol that holds great power, from ancient antiquity to the postmodern world. Reigning as the goddess of love in Roman mythology, Venus also represents sex, beauty, fertility, along with victory and even prostitution.  Perhaps the most famous image of Venus that we are all familiar with is one depicted in Boticelli’s Birth of Venus, with the goddess gracefully emerging from the sea naked with locks flowing, on a clam shell. The image of this goddess of love and beauty has been celebrated and depicted in various forms over the centuries in literature, paintings, and […]

Hyper Influencer Marketing – How to Become a Powerful Social Media Influencer

How to Become a Successful Social Media Influencer

Being a social media influencer is not as easy as it looks. If it’s not that hard, then all of us will go ahead and do it to earn money. However, if everyone is already doing it, its financial value won’t be as much as it currently is. Becoming a successful social media influencer, on the other hand, is another story. It means that you already have a big audience and followers who support every post that you make. You can tell if you’re already successful if you already have thousands of followers and still growing. Reasons to be a […]

Miss Queen City of the Hudson

Miss Queen City of the Hudson

“There she is…” It may seem like a strange piece of pop-culture trivia to recognize this iconic phrase sang by Bert Parks at the conclusion of the oldest American Pageant competition still in existence. For many, this song stays in the collective memory of those that aspired to be crowned a “Miss” of their own county, state or town one day. For these delegates, the pageant stage stands as the symbol of femininity and the pursuit of the American dream; glitz and glamour of stage lights and satin rhinestone sashes, the anticipation of runner-up announcements and the unexpected friendships made […]

Decorating Your Home for Christmas – by Designer Maxwell Alexander

Christmas is the one time of year that most people pull out all the stops when it comes to decorating.

The problem is that most people cannot keep up with the newest, latest, and greatest in Christmas decorations. For these people there should be no worry. Christmas is a celebration of good will and not a competition to have the grandest display […]

Reimagine Your Workspace – 5 Secrets of Productivity and Feng Shui

Just a few months ago we featured Villa 9W – one of the Duncan Avenue Design Studio projects and analyzed it from the Feng Shui perspective. I like using Feng Shui concepts to make overly complicated scientific ideas more relatable and down-to-earth. It is fascinating how our knowledge of home design circled back thousands of years just to see that we’ve had it all figured out! Well, another thing just happened: the new generation of the workforce (Millennials) is in! They are very serious about health & wellness and in fact, (thanks to advancements in technology) work from the home office more than […]
