rebel with a cause

In order to be a disruptor in today’s evolving world, you can’t be afraid to take risks. Performer and actress Janelle Monáe doesn’t strike me as one who isn’t afraid of taking risks. A true example of someone who has completely turned her industry on its head, whatever Janelle touches has everything to do with stepping outside the box, from branding herself a human android to her futuristic sound and choice of film roles. Some of the best innovators and disruptors in the world have passion, tenacity and vision.

how fashion got funny

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Fashion. Yes, the industry that takes itself seriously is shedding the pout in favour of a smile.
