While I was in NYC last week, I took the opportunity to use Central Park as my backdrop for a new episode of On The Flipside! I’ve taken a 2 month break from producing new episodes, but I finally managed to crank one out…#22! And in the midst of losing my hard drive, I had to re-edit 2 of these segments which were already done, and re-upload all the graphics, etc.. to get this show done..BUT MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
This episode features Common who’s the leading man in new movie “Just Wright,” which opens up today. There are a bunch of NBA cameo’s in the film, including Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, Jalen Rose and ESPN personality Stuart Scott…so of course I had to post the interviews! Then I included a feature segment on the Orlando Magic’s Matt Barnes, another on the Buffalo Bills Aaron Maybin and this show’s sideline distraction is Tamae Ishii! Take 10 minutes to tune in!! http://ontheflipsidetv.com
A good friend of mine, Tamae Ishii, is a designer based in New York. Her line is called Ishii NYC – high end women’s contemporary couture. Anyway, when I visit…and we go out, she let’s me wear her “clothes!” See me below in her “Wool Herringbone Bustier” dress.
I had the pleasure of interviewing the “Marchesa Girls” last week at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour! These ladies create some of the most beautiful & amazing dresses and gowns and you’ve seen the Marchesa designs on all the red carpets! JLo, Halle Berry, Freida Pinto, etc… I wish I had enough occassions and events to wear every single one in the collection.
Side note…I wore my friend Tamae’s – Ishii NYC designer top – for the interview and got tons of compliments. See my previous post where I mentioned that Paula Abdul wore the same top for an episode of American Idol!
Paula Abdul wore an Ishii NYC on American Idol last Wednesday! My good friend Tamae Ishii IS Ishii NYC, so I want to congratulate her on the accomplishment…Paula looked fabulous! The 100% Hammered Silk Blouse is from Ishii NYC’s Fall 2009 collection and is available in either gold or purple. If you want to get this look and/or see more of Tamae’s designs, please visit Ishii NYC online!
