Rose in Good Faith Seeks to Diversify Through Wholesale

Los Angeles streetwear brand Rose in Good Faith said it’s projecting to hit its first $ 1 million in sales this year, driven by what it hopes will be a ramp up in wholesale and continued growth of direct-to-consumer.
The latter channel is how the brand, started at the beginning of 2017, has so far built a name for itself, selling direct with a focus on specialty pieces and collaborations based around early Aughts nostalgia and niches around the hardcore and metal music subgenres. It’s from those subculture genres that the company’s founders hope to grow their brand.
The result has been collaborations with JNCO and more recently Ed Hardy in a collection that included 50 specialty T-shirts dripping with thousands of Swarovski crystals priced at $ 3,095. The T-shirts, available only to a select group of clients as a precursor to the release of the rest of the collection, sold out in two days, with Tyga among the celebrities spotted in the piece.
Rose in Good Faith is sold in American Rag’s Los Angeles and Dubai stores, in addition to Tokyo’s Nubian, which is the exclusive retailer for the Ed Hardy product.
“The direct-to-consumer growth has been strong,” said cofounder David Teitelbaum. “It’s been doing

Alife Collaborates With the Brooklyn Museum, Faith Ringgold

Last year, Alife relaunched with an unexpected Crocs collaboration.
Alife approached Crocs before the footwear brand reentered the fashion conversation via a tie-in with Balenciaga on an imaginative, platform pair that retails for $ 850. But since then, newer streetwear brands including Pleasures and Chinatown Market have released their own co-branded Crocs.
“That’s the last thing we wanted to happen,” said Treis Hill, an Alife cofounder, when asked about these collaborations. “One thing that Alife consistently tries to ensure, which might be to our detriment, is that we aren’t trying to follow what people do. No one was thinking about Crocs until we did it, so for us let’s move on to something else and focus on a new message.”
That new message is Black History Month, and Alife has partnered with the Brooklyn Museum and Faith Ringgold, a Harlem-born artist whose work was featured in the “Soul of a Nation” exhibit at the museum. Ringgold is known for her quilts, but also practices painting, sculpting and performance art.
“Alife is centered around art and our objective is to push art and perpetuate that through our apparel, but this is the first time we’ve done something during Black History Month,” said Hill. “This was an

Rose in Good Faith Looks to Put New Spin on Ed Hardy

LOS ANGELES — Most everyone has something to say, whether good or bad, about the Ed Hardy brand. Los Angeles streetwear brand Rose In Good Faith wants to add to the conversation and give people something new to talk about.
The label was tapped to work on a collaboration with the brand, well-known for its tattoo-inspired graphics seen on many a celebrity in the early aughts.
Rose in Good Faith aims for an elevated aesthetic for its Ed Hardy collaboration, which is being produced in downtown Los Angeles.
“You’re going to see a lot of elevation in the applications and the graphics,” said creative director Akiva Alpert, who founded Rose in Good Faith with David Teitelbaum in 2016. “You’re going to see a lot of eccentricities in the way the graphics are constructed, but I think when it comes to the garments themselves, it’s applying body modifications to the garments. It’s the idea of the clothing, the fabric in a sense, becoming a tattoo. We asked how can we push the envelope even further on something that isn’t just taking nostalgia, but actually stands on its own as being even more progressive and edgier than what came before.”
The collection, set for a November

SHOPPING TIP UPDATE!

Faith Connexion Fall 2017

For its first runway show, Faith Connexion drove home its brand DNA with a unisex collection featuring blown-out proportions, vivid patterns, embellishments and distressed effects.
Models were in for a workout as they worked their way through a mansion in the 16th arrondissement. After strutting the ground floor ballroom — the women in punishing platform stiletto boots made in collaboration with New Rock — the cast twirled through the many chambers of the labyrinthine basement before working their way upstairs for a family portrait on the swirling marble staircase.
The circuit was long, but after waiting 10 years to stage its first show, why not let Faith Connexion enjoy the moment? The punk-infused streetwear brand counts Rihanna, Beyoncé and the Kardashian sisters among its devotees, but has heretofore limited its fashion week presence to quiet presentations away from the runway hubbub.
The collection was less focused on hand-painting and graffiti this season, leaning toward patchwork and the juxtaposition of bold prints. The brand’s signature mix of decadence and DIY shone through in a studded aviator, or a black-and-gold brocade suit with feather fringe. A collaboration with Kappa supplied shimmering track pants and tie-dyed sweatshirts with the soccer brand’s iconic logo.
It was all a bit too much. But Faith Connexion faithfuls wouldn’t have it any another way.

FAITH

2016 just took yet another piece of our hearts when George Michael suddenly disappeared like a careless whisper which in the moment does nothing more than challenge, well, our faith. Nothing hurts more than the staggering loss of a mother or father figure.

I’m sure, if you are like me, every time a star suddenly extinguishes, you have taken an astonished, breathless step back while clutching your chest so many times this year, that at this point it feels like we have been performing a kind of global sized ritual farewell dance whose steps are becoming second nature to us…even though each time it doesn’t hurt any less.

Death, which seems no less cuddly than Simon Cowell, seems to quickly judge and even dismiss some of our greatest sons and daughters with the casual wave of a casual hand.

A partial list of the musicians who have fallen is literally too much to bear. We have lost David Bowie, Prince, Paul Kantner, George Martin, Merle Haggard, Marni Nixon, Leonard Cohen and Glen Frey. We lost Muhammad Ali, Patty Duke, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Garry Shandling, Doris Roberts, Alan Thicke, Morely Safter, Peter Shaffer, Gordon Howe, Elie Wiesel, Michael Cimino, Edward Albee, Arnold Palmer, Robert Vaughn, Florence Henderson, Fidel Castro, and John Glenn too. And Good now Carrie Fisher whom I idolized.

It’s like God has taken to treating our best and brightest like the 2003 toppling of the statue of Saadam Huessein in Firdos Squard in Baghdad. It is most startling, I think, when the bigger than life suddenly have no life. It seems, in the moment, incomprehensible, no different than we lose our beloved bff dogs, closest friends or relatives.

The illusion of profound, bigger than you celebrity is the distorted belief that we think we KNOW the famous and infamous intimately. Film may be projected but we do just as much projecting as we transmit our deepest daydreams from the comfort of our silky dark room seats which allows us to imagine becoming whoever we most identify with. That is what we do, after all, in our real, everyday dreams. Everyone who populates the never ending casts of our fantasy worlds are the secret understudies for our most profound and usuall unmanageable feelings. Appearing in the role of anger, may be your mom your boss or even yourself. In the role of love can be your first, your last or the one you never knew.

Celebrities are vessels and not real people to us. We imagine their lives. Their thoughts, their needs, their desires. We fixate on them. Consider them. Wish that they were our best friends.

I meet a lot of famous people in my line of TV, film and play writing. I remember when I went to Barbra Streisand’s house to pitch a film idea. When she entered the room like a blonde and blue eyed, sensual, cashmere wrapped whirlwind, the thing that struck and shocked me immediately was that she was a complete stranger (which I told her. And PS: I really liked the person I met).

We feel possessive of some famous people while others anger and offend us for reasons that have nothing whatsoever to do with them. We just HATE them. Whoever they are. My dad despised Claudette Colbert and I hear she was just swell in real life.

Over the last twenty years or so we have been instructed to live in the powerful state of now and personally I find the now so pliable and ever changing that I question what the now really is.

For me, the now is wherever my deep conscience guide (who most often sounds like a good imitation of my long ago lost dad or mom) tells me where I must commute to.

I think this is the soul’s real intent and purpose: to help us cope with the here and now of the physical world.

The best example of this is how we, who know better, have been forced to take on the sudden emergence of Donald Trump.

Real people like Bernie or Hillary were doomed from the beginning.

Millions of lost souls, long invisible to the rest of us, chose the Christian eschatology of rapture as the solution to all that filled them with emptiness and despair.

Big feelings require a bigger than life, Jesus-like second coming and just like the actual Gods who twe privately recite our nightly prayers to (who I suspect may also be our evaporated parents who we long for) so I don’t think that the actual person played any part whatsoever in this past election.

It did not matter what he said or how he endlessly contradicted himself. All that mattered was that he was the bullhorn of the bully pulpit in the Church of Now who found a simple language that could be easily devoured, like a Whitman’s Sampler, by his mostly ignorant congregation who believed in the simple and wildly untrue lie that reality shows and the people who overppoulate them were real. I worked on one and trust me, none of it is real. That is why scenes are manipuated and even reshot when the producers don’t get the reactions that they need. Reality is what TV manufacturers and simulates. Real life is what is outside your window and how much time do you spend watching that?

Reality is negotiable and Trump, who is now the Precidential (sp) Pied Piper of the Impoverished, figured that out totally by mistake. He has spent his entire life searching for a way to become omnipotent (while privately battling a life long recurrence of psychological impotence) and what better endgame part is there for him, than False God? The sad truth is, he’d really Almighty Mouse.

He was trained not at Wharton, but by living the life of an indugled,, spoiled brat trust fund baby, who “succeeeded” despite a stunning lack of talent by overcompensating for his ongoing and outsized failures. This is why he uses words like “bigly,” “huge” and “fantastic.” Because he believes to his core that those words are the magical prescription for everything. He is nothing more than clumsy, poorly trained magician at a children’s balloon party. But while you can see right through him, most four years cannot.

Welcome to the United States of Daycare.

Here, we come full circle and return to paragraph one and the loss of our most beloved fantasy real life people.

Perhaps, God, in all his infinite wisdom, while not busy helping fabulously wealthy NFL/NBA/MLB stars win championships or recording artists win Grammies, he magically turns our most beloved and needed celebrities into exclamation points, which is like a final burst explosion of fireworks which will go off inside our hearts whenever we remember them, hear their music or lyrics or watch their celluloid enshrined performances.

Because memory is the one temple that can never be destroyed.

So my advice to you all, my beloved hope searching readers, is to embrace the now that you need for now.

Include every single moment of the past, with its lessons of love and loss while you fantasize about the future and encourage the voices who talk to you like wizened duet partners, during films and plays, impulsively on the first note of a cherished song.

The most powerful legacy of the most poweful is not always apparent in the now of now.

Sometimes you have to listen to doves cry.

Joe Biden Speaks Candidly About Grief, Loss And Faith In Revealing Stephen Colbert Interview

In an emotional interview, Vice President Joe Biden spoke candidly on Thursday about the recent death of his son Beau, extensively discussing his grief and how it has made it difficult for him to commit to a potential presidential bid in 2016 despite growing calls for him to run.

“I don’t think any man or woman should run for president unless, number one, they know exactly why they would want to be president; and two, they can look at folks out there and say, ‘I promise you have my whole heart, my whole soul, my energy and my passion,'” he told comedian Stephen Colbert in an interview that will air Thursday night on CBS’ “The Late Show.” 

“I’d be lying if I said that I knew I was there. I’m being completely honest,” Biden continued. “Nobody has a right in my view to seek that office unless they are willing to give it 110 percent of who they are.”

Biden has repeatedly indicated that his family is the primary factor in his decision whether or not to run and has said that he is unsure if he possesses the “emotional energy” to run.

He spoke at length about his grief on Thursday, recounting memories of Beau and frequently appearing close to tears.

“I was a hell of a success. My son was better than me. He was better than me in every way,” he said of Beau, who died in May after battling brain cancer.

The vice president also spoke about how his Catholic faith has helped him cope with Beau’s death, saying that religion gives him “enormous sense of solace.”

“I go to mass and I’m able to be just alone, even in a crowd,” he said. “It’s just a place you can go.” 

He revealed that he feels “self-conscious” about the outpouring of support he received, noting that “so many people who have losses as severe or maybe worse than mine and don’t have the support I have.”

“No one owes you anything,” he said. “You gotta get up. And I feel like I was letting down Beau, letting down my parents, letting down my family if I didn’t just get up. I marvel at the ability of people who absorb hurt and just get back up.”

 

Colbert eventually asked Biden about the mounting rumors that he may pursue a presidential bid.

“I want to talk about the elephant in the room, which in this case is a donkey. Do you have anything to tell us about your plans?” he asked.

“I think you should run for president again, and I’ll be your vice president,” Biden quipped, referencing the time Colbert briefly was a presidential candidate in 2008.

Biden also joked about his tendency to speak out of turn as vice president when his microphone suddenly shut off at the beginning of the interview.

“By the way, they do this to me at the White House all the time — shut my mic off,” Biden said.

But most of the interview covered serious matters. Colbert, who himself has experienced immense loss, losing his father and two brothers in plane crash when he was just 10 years old, seemed to support a Biden candidacy, arguing that Biden’s experiences would give him a unique perspective.

“It’s going to be emotional for a lot of people if you don’t run,” he told Biden. “Your example of suffering and service is something that would be sorely missed in the race.”

The Substance of Things Seen: Art, Faith, and the Christian Community

The Substance of Things Seen: Art, Faith, and the Christian Community


While the average person rarely sees it, the visual arts play a subtle yet profound role in the teaching and formation of faith, both for individuals and religious communities. The Substance of Things Seen explores the intersection of art and faith, offering thoughtful reflections on the way art functions in Christian life and practice. Highly readable and featuring instructive illustrations, this book is meant to engage church leaders as well as artists in constructive conversation about the critical role that art can play in the renewal of Christian education, worship, and study. It also challenges anyone who thinks the arts are only of marginal importance to the religious life. Robin Jensen considers here a broad range of topics relevant to Christian faith and culture, including the construction of sacred space, the use of art in worship and spiritual formation, the way that visual art interprets sacred texts, and the power and danger of art from a historical and contemporary perspective.

Faith: 20 Years Strong

2015-04-01-1427888188-1379415-201503311427816099920288IMG_6568thumb.JPG

When you look up the word ‘Incomparable’ it means “unable to be compared.’ It’s also the name of the newest album from Faith Evans. The R&B singer from New Jersey has a music career spanning 20 years. Faith was the first female artist to be signed to Bad Boy Entertainment in 1994 and her first studio album ‘Faith’ was released in 1995. Faith took to the stage to perform some of her greatest hits and songs from her new album ‘Incomparable’ that was released in November. On a Sunday night in March in New York City she was the headliner during the monthly showcase of R&B Spotlight that’s held at Sounds of Brazil or what is also know as SOBs. Before Faith took the stage, super fans of hers got to hear unsigned talented artist as well J. Drew of the famous Clark Sisters & Sheard family.

If you’ve never been to a Faith Evans show it mirrors every aspect of her life. The singer has been through a great deal of heartache, pain, and exciting time. That’s why I feel it’s very fitting to say that her performances are much of the same. Faith takes the listener on an emotional, rocky, yet fun journey. Without a doubt she brought the house with her energy and her legion of fans known as #Faithfuls. Personally, I was excited to be at the show but I was even more excited that I would be getting the opportunity to spend about five minutes with Faith to interview an amazing singer whose songs I have heard playing on the radio since I was 12 years old. I can recall hearing “Soon As I Get Home” blasting from some of my other sister’s rooms as I run through the house. So the opportunity to interview her was five minutes well spent. Tunnel Vision Marketing & Consulting is the reason I was able to knock out one of my interview goals.

I met Faith for our brief five-minute chat inside of her dressing room after the show. I wanted to know how she has remained such a force in the music industry for so long, how she’s maintained herself over the years and what people can expect from her new music.

KM: Faith, thank you so much for this opportunity. You definitely brought the house down tonight? How did it feel being up there in front of all those ride-or-die Faith fans?

Faith: Oh I had so much fun, I wish that I could have done a longer set but the band that I performed with I haven’t worked with them before but I threw in two extra songs and they were able to pick it up. It was just so much fun, it’s always good to come back home because the home city is always there to support.

KM: Let’s talk about the album ‘Incomparable’ for a moment. What’s different about this one than say some of your previous albums?

Faith: Well, first this is a concept album and details a lot of things that I was going through whether it be with my family or conversationally you know post divorce and getting back into dating. The album really captures a two year period of my life It was so great to bring it all together and make a story out of it. Also to me it’s my best album so far. Now I have others coming but it’s a really good album to me. All I really wanted was for people to say it’s a good album and I have been getting that.

KM: What makes Faith Evans strong?

Faith: First and foremost my family makes me strong. My mother and my grandmother made me strong. My children make me strong and the fact that I wake up at four in the morning to go work out makes me strong. But most of all God keeps me, makes me, made me, fulfills me, you know he is why I am strong.

KM: And you look amazing, let’s just go ahead and say that too!

Faith: Thank you, thank you so much.

It’s true Faith Evans has transformed her body but her soul remains true to form. Which brings me back to the new album ‘Incomparable’ and why it is appropriately titled during this time in her life. In her life she has seen her fair share of triumphant times and pain but the journey has been hers and no one could compare to handling it the way that she has. Faith pours her soul into her music and once she hits the stage the #Faithfuls feel it too. ‘Incomparable’ is available now everywhere music is sold. Give it a listen and let Faith take you on a musical journey.

Bad Faith: When Religious Belief Undermines Modern Medicine

Bad Faith: When Religious Belief Undermines Modern Medicine


In Bad Faith, acclaimed physician and author Paul Offit gives readers a never-before-seen look into the minds of those who choose to medically martyr themselves, or their children, in the name of religion. Never afraid of controversy, Offit takes a stark and disturbing look at our surprising capacity to risk the health and safety of children in service of our beliefs. He tells the story of two devoted Christian Scientists who are shocked and heartbroken when their infant dies of a treatable disease; of orthodox Jewish parents who risk infecting their babies with herpes during an unsterile circumcision ritual; and of a man who believes his faith can cure his son’s diabetes and, when that tragically fails, tries to raise him from the dead. The tangled relationship between religion and medicine may appear to afflict only certain pockets of America, but this phenomenon reaches much further – whether you are seeking treatment at a Catholic hospital or trying to keep your kids safe from diseases spread by their unvaccinated peers, you’ll likely encounter these issues”-Provided by publisher.

Mormon Artifacts On Display In ‘Foundations Of Faith’ Exhibit

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Wednesday unveiled a new collection that features some of the faith’s most treasured artifacts, including a page from the original Book of Mormon manuscript written by founder Joseph Smith.

The “Foundations of Faith” exhibit that opens to the public this week in the church’s history library in Salt Lake City also includes 26 other books, manuscripts and documents that go back to the early days of Mormonism. The Book of Mormon is considered the religion’s most valuable manuscript, said Richard E. Turley, assistant church historian and recorder.

The exhibit, unveiled by church historians at a news conference, marks the latest example of the faith being more open and transparent about its history.

A year ago, the church began releasing books containing historical documents that shed light on how Smith formed the church in upstate New York more than 180 years ago.

The religion also recently issued a series of in-depth articles that explain or expand on some of the more sensitive parts of its history and doctrine that it once sidestepped. Articles have addressed the religion’s past ban on black men in the lay clergy and the early history of polygamy.

The exhibit contains first printed editions of the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and the Pearl of Great Price. All are keystone documents for the faith that counts 15 million members worldwide and is based in Salt Lake City. Smith’s journal from 1832 to 1834 also is in the collection.

“These four display cases comprise our most precious documents,” Steven E. Snow, church historian and recorder. “They go to the foundation of our faith. These are our spiritual roots.”

Some of the earliest records in the collection were carefully maintained as church headquarters moved from New York to Pennsylvania to Ohio to Missouri and Illinois, and finally to Utah in 1847 after a t r ek across country by early church members.

“Persecuted” Gives Faith Based Films a Bad Name

Movie Review Jackie K Cooper
“Persecuted” (One Media)

This year there have been quite a number of faith based movies released. Some have been high profile like “Heaven Is For Real” and others have been low on the radar like “Alone Yet Not Alone.” Still most of them have shared a quality of talent that makes them acceptable to the movie going community. That is as it should be. Just because a movie is “faith based” does not mean it is automatically worth seeing. A “faith based” film should have to earn its audience just like every other kind of movie.

Take a movie like “Persecuted.” This just released movie has been hyped as a “faith based” film. Boasting a cast that includes Fred Dalton Thompson and Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson, this is a movie that should play successfully with those on the right of the political spectrum and with Christians in particular. Let’s hope not, since “Persecuted” is a perfectly awful movie.

The story concerns a charismatic minister named John Luther (James Remar). At the height of his success he is framed for a murder he did not commit. This is done because he did not support a one size fits all freedom of religion bill that is being sponsored by Senator Donald Harrison (Bruce Davison).

Luther goes on the run and tries to find someone to help him disprove this accusation. One of the first people he turns to is his father Charles (Thompson), who is also a pastor (or priest?). Together they make plans to cleanse John’s reputation. But while they are doing this, Harrison and his minions are searching high and low for John.

Flaw number one: While John is driving around the Washington, DC area no one can seemingly locate him. This is happening even though his picture is all over television and the newspapers. There is such a thing as hiding in plain sight but the freedom he has to travel around without being spotted is ridiculous.

Flaw number two: John Luther is supposed to be a man of enormous charisma and personality. He has created and run a huge worldwide ministry. As played by Remar he is a sulking, low key individual who couldn’t influence his dog. Remar has had roles where he had some spunk and spirit but none of that is on display in this movie.

Flaw number three: Nothing in the movie makes any sense. As the story enters its final phase it gets even more bizarre. You walk out wondering if half of the plot was just tossed during the filming.

All of those flaws are fatal and all of them destroy any entertainment value the movie might have had. The acting is atrocious. Remar is not the only one sleepwalking his way through his/her part. Thompson is wooden and Carlson is all glowing Barbie doll. So much for her big screen movie debut. And out of nowhere comes Dean Stockwell, a talented and well thought of actor who has not been on screen lately. Why did he want to return in a lame vehicle like this one!

The movie is rated PG-13 for violence.

Movies like “Persecuted” give faith based films a bad name. They mention God and Jesus in the dialogue and think that will be enough to draw a crowd. Here’s hoping it isn’t.

I scored “Persecuted” a sinful 2 out of 10.

A Legacy of Faith

A Legacy of Faith


‘A Legacy of Faith’ is a compiled writing of the last few years of Linda’s life. There is a blend in this book of her journal entries during the time of ALS, Debbie’s observations, and a caregiver’s description involved in her daily care along with others who offered support to Linda while learning to cope with ALS. Linda’s trust in God and her belief in reward in Heaven is the one thing that made any real sense to her. Bible verses continually came to mind which gave comfort. Debbie chronicled Linda’s decline in health, with compassion, trying to depict her with her sense of humor despite grave obstacles. Linda’s faith was expressed in her words, ‘I don’t look into mirrors very often these days but when I do, the reflections has changed.There is, however, one thing that remains the same, my eyes.When I look in the mirror, I see the same eyes I saw when I was a terrified little girl looking in the mirror. I see the eternal me and there is no fear, there is total peace. I know who I am, I know where I will spend eternity and so can you.’ ‘A Legacy of Faith’ is a graphic description of the ravages of ALS and recounts the life changes that affected Linda’s entire family. Yet, despite her death, the story strikes a positive chord which the reader will not soon forget.
