With eyes trained over the edge of water, you may witness a swimmer in a moment of suspended balance. The second where their body is a weightless, floating object; their guarded breath escape in bubbles that distort their head’s swirling image. Any swimmer knows this moment, the quiet break from gravity’s bonds where you are for an instant captured by the pull of water.
As a fashion-obsessed preteen, I always begged my mom to take me to the mall. There, I could see my favorite runway looks in person–an experience I often compared to meeting a celebrity. But, the experience was two-sided, I loved seeing the work made by the artists I considered my kin.
It doesn’t take long for guests to take note of Canopy’s luxurious vibe. Within seconds of entering the West Peachtree parking garage, valet staff greets you with smiling faces as they grab your bag and park your car because, well, self-parking isn’t allowed. Located in the city’s artistic district, the boutique hotel is walking distance from Piedmont Park, Atlanta Symphony Hall, the Alliance Theatre and the High Museum of Art.
Too often fans and the media have this habit of proclaiming that an artist has fallen off. This may be true but no one takes into account what that individual may be doing behind the scenes. We get so caught up in visibility and the idea that if we don’t see something it didn’t happen. I’ve witnessed this especially when it pertains to the music industry.

I had never been to this area before and was beginning to wonder if I had typed in the wrong address on my GPS. After driving thirty minutes to the outskirts of Atlanta, I ended up in Doraville, GA following a winding street, a row of parked cars, and the promise of the sluttiest cheeseburger in Georgia.
There is always a curiosity as to what makes a particular artist resonate with people. Is it their story, relatability, or something different altogether? I have always known that everything wasn’t meant for me and I try to respect other people’s opinion. For so long hip-hop has been a refuge for the misfits, misunderstood, and minorities from all walks of life.
If someone were to wear a Marina Moscone piece out and about, they would not necessarily capture the mass attention of photographers. The pieces are casual, elegant, traditional and most-notably, ready-to-wear. They are not loud pieces, rather they softly whisper a casual elegance that appeals to many professional women.
He’s designed more than 750 household items, yet most of us don’t even know his name. We use his products day in and day out, never stopping to think about the details of how the items were made. Instead, we drive to a store and grab what we need, never quite realizing how his sacrifices resulted in our convenience.
