At a party a few months ago that legendary fashion designer Sue Wong held at her historic hillside estate, the Cedars, I had the immense pleasure of meeting Maryam Morrison, the lively and personable founder and illustrator of the wonderful “The Eden Magazine.” This popular magazine is a free online magazine that focuses on spreading compassion to all sentient beings living in a healing and peaceful world.

Momentum Transferred Exhibition at Bruce Lurie Gallery

Had a nice time at the Momentum Transferred Exhibition at Lurie Gallery in Culver City’s popular arts district. Innovative artists such as Ziba Afshar, Tracey Adams, Heidi Spector & Daniel Brice were a part of this exhibit. Though I have classical taste in art, one can’t beat this gallery for contemporary art. After all, Bruce gave Jean-Michel Basquiat his first show as requested by Leo Castelli at his art gallery he owned and operated in the early 1980’s in New York’s edgy East Village. The gallery has a particular focus on establishing emerging to mid-career artists specializing in Abstract minimalism […]

The Whimsical World of Celebrity Photographer Clinton H. Wallace

One of the first media people I was blessed with having the pleasure of meeting in LA eons ago was the one and only Clinton H. Wallace. If memory serves me correctly, we met at The West of Brooklyn premiere. He is a trusted friend and colleague and has been like a big brother to me. Clinton is of Cuban and German ancestry on his mother’s side and Jamaican and Scottish ancestry on his father’s side, but for some reason, the Cuban and Jamaican sides stand out the most to me personality-wise, so I affectionally refer to him at the “Cubaican” […]

I had the distinct pleasure and honor of getting an invite to an intimate holiday Sunday brunch over the 4th of July weekend at renowned fashion designer Sue Wong’s historical estate, The Cedars.

I had a great re-connection to a fashionable part of my Persian culture that I have yet to see at Shahla Dorriz Couture last night via their bold and artistic “Matriarchs / Archives” exhibition. This is the second exhibition of the ” / Archives” series by mother and son collaborators Shahla and Alexandre Dorriz.
