Here we introduce to you the clothing
ASC:Tell us about yourself and your brand: How did you
come up with the name?
RL: Funny thing is certain email browsers disect your name and come up with one... And just so happen this is the one they came up with. Then a friend said that sounds fancy I'd buy clothes with that name. And there you have it.
ASC:What does the name mean to you?
RL:The name means freedom. I am my own boss.
ASC: Can you give a description of your line?
RL: Our line is street wear with an edge... We like to call it concrete couture... It is clothes with a meaning and a responsibility... Allowing christian young women and men to be cutting edge and fashion forward but remembering "modest is hottest" (jesus couture)
ASC: What influenced you to start your own line?
RL: God was the only factor... I never wanted to design or sew but God blessed me to be around people and mentors who gave me tips and some training like Clayretta Wilson, Jasmine Malone and Linda Bell... The talent these women posses influenced me to keep going with God's backing.
ASC:What makes your line different from the others out there?
RL:There is no others like ours... There is no comparison.
ASC: I know every company faces challenges, so can you tell us what challenges you’ve encountered while running a business? And how do you overcome these challenges?
RL: Because we were doing something new in our arena... Many christians did not know how to take us... We were put out of churches. And became the shock value of most shows... We decided to follow God only making and doing what he leads us to do.
ASC: What advertising methods have you used to promote your line?
RL: TV, Radio, fashion shows, showcases, flyers and social networking but we find the best advertising is word of mouth...
ASC: What future projects do you have lined up and how far are you willing to take this venture?
RL: We are curently planning our fall/winter collection which will be in september, we are also stepping into bridal and working on a full line for full figured fashion... We plan on taking this as. Far as God will allow... Staying focus on our main mission which is "the runway is our pulpit"
ASC: Are there any designers you look up to?
RL:The ultimate designer which is God can you get any better than that... As for as mainstream designer Pre- alexander Mcqueen and Vivenne Westwood
ASC: Where can people buy your clothing or find out more about it?
RL: We have a studio in portsmouth... Located @ 728 high st suite 200 portsmouth va 23704

After being married for 13 years to wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, actor Will Smith seems like he would be a good person to sit down and talk with about how to make a healthy marriage work. He recently spoke with Essence about relationships, schooling us on not only love and marriage, but what men need to be happy. He says that every man wants to marry their “homie,” avoid nagging by direct affection, give your man a little space, and keep things mysterious:
If You Marry Your Best Friend, You’re Good
Every man wants to marry his homie, Will explained. A lot of women will impress them, but it’s the one they can always laugh with and be themselves with that will ultimately impress them the most. If you can be yourselves around each other, 100 percent of the time, and they can make you laugh like no one else can, you’ll never have a dull moment together.
Remind Him of What He Has
When you start to feel that you’re nagging your husband to the point of no return and nothing you’re saying is getting through, Will suggests you try a new approach. Hold him close, look him right in the eyes, and tell him that you love him, you’re right there, and you always will be, BUT you need him to pick his socks up – right now. As Will puts it, it’s important to remind him that your request is coming from a good place, and what you want is a small thing in the grand scheme of things. Um, genius!
All Men Need A Little Space
“If you don’t give your husband thirty minutes to himself when he first gets home he’ll stop coming home,” Will told me, straight up. (You’re thinking, no way, right? I did too!) When I asked Will when a wife was supposed to say her piece, he responded, “anytime after that.” Will reminded me that everyone’s home needs to feel like a happy place, and it won’t if you’re “greeted with negativity” every time you enter the door. Touché Will. Talk about a pause for the cause.
Focus on Balance and Excitement Always
According to Will and Jada’s way of thinking about marriage, maintaining a happy union isn’t just about making time for one another, it’s about making the time count too. Excitement and mystery are everything, he said. Surprise them, let them know you love them, laugh together – whatever it takes to put a smile on their face.
