Friday, July 11, 2014 Newsflash: The Queen’s English by Martine Syms and Cat Roif
Martine Syms has already taught us a lot about music and art. But today, we want to spread the word about one of her and photographer phenom Cat Roif‘s personal projects, because they’re doing some pretty cool stuff. From July 13 through August 31, Armory Center for the Arts will feature The Queen’s English, an exhibition and reading room. The exhibition will explore black feminist communities in the ’70s and promote discussions on language and representation. In other words, this is cool stuff and you should go! The opening reception is this Saturday the 12th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm!

Friday, September 20, 2013 Newsflash: Va$htie: Nasty Gal At Heart + Elle Influential
Vashtie Kola, aka Va$htie, is known as NYC ‘Downtown’s Sweetheart’ for a good reason. She is not only an incredibly talented artist and director, but also caught our eye on the recent Elle Influentials list. Although we can’t imagine that she spends too much time at home, Elle headed over to Vashtie’s East Village apartment to get a lesson on what’s cool. Of course, our highlight was at 1:15 when she revealed that, “Nasty Gal is one of [her] favorite sites ever.” Nice choice, Vashtie! As an added bonus, they gave us a ‘lil peek into her closet where we found some treasure… Three pairs of brand spankin’ new Shoe Cult shoes (two of which have yet to come out): the Dusted Platform, Hex Cutout Boot, and the Luster Hologram Flat. Keep your eye out for her upcoming appearance in something super secret we have brewing here at NG HQ! Hint: the Cult has spread cross-country. In the meantime, hang out with Vashtie in the October issue of Elle magazine, which hits stands on 9/24.
Friday, September 13, 2013 Newsflash: #GIRLBOSS is coming!
Today, WWD and Refinery 29 blew my cover. And by that I mean—I’m writing a book! #GIRLBOSS has been an idea in my head for a while, and I couldn’t be more excited to partner with publishers Portfolio and Putnam—say that five times fast—to make it a reality. #GIRLBOSS will chronicle how I went from above left, a dumpster-diving anarchist, to above right, CEO of a multimillion dollar corporation. It will detail what I’ve learned along the way and here’s a hint: The path from point A(narchist) to point B(usiness) has been anything but a straight line, and it’s also been anything but boring. #GIRLBOSS will be out in May 2014, but you can pre-order it right now. I can’t wait!
