This Simply Intricate #TBT goes back to 2012. On February 11th, 2012, Fe Noel debuted Simply Intricate for the very first time on the streets of New York. The brands very first season was SS ‘12. Walking through 8 different locations, Fe Noel brought a fashion week runway show to the public. With a walk for the public, this is an iconic moment in Simply Intricate history. Carter Magazine interviewed Fe Noel on this unforgettable event. The reasoning behind this brilliant idea? “The idea just came to me. I wanted to do something different and I wanted to reach a different market, because the reality is that not everyone can go to fashion week." Read more on the Carter Magazine interview.

Recently I had the honor and privilege to speak with the great mind and spirit behind the “Bridging The Gap Between History & Hip-Hop: Black Wall Street” documentary and its birth child CARTER™ Magazine, Mr. Queon Martin. Full of insight, wisdom and creativity, Martin offered words of empowerment, education, knowledge of self and nepotism. The almost hour long phone conversation surpassed inspiring and entered the realm of life-changing. (I hardly noticed the cramps in my fingers from holding the phone so long nor the imprint it left on my face… it was great!) His selflessness, historical knowledge and down-to-Earth demeanor plants an eternal seed of evolution and change within all whom he connects with

Today In History We Honor Jean-Michel Basquiat

"Underlying Jean-Michel Basquiat’s sense of himself as an artist was his innate capacity to function as something like an oracle, distilling his perceptions of the outside world down to their essence and in turn, projecting them outward through his creative acts." via basquiat.com

Today We Honor Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth was born in 1797 on the Colonel Johannes Hardenbergh estate in Swartekill, a Dutch settlement in upstate New York. She was born to Elizabeth and James Baumfree, also slaves on the Hardenbergh plantation. She spoke only Dutch until she suffered cruel treatment at the hands of a later master, she learned to speak English quickly, but had a Dutch accent for the rest of her life. Her book, The Narrative of Sojourner Truth: A Northern Slave allowed Sojourner to tour and speak to woman across the nation. In 1854, at the Ohio Woman’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio, she gave her most famous, “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech :

“That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud puddles, or gives me any best place, and ain’t I a woman? … I have plowed, and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me — and ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man (when I could get it), and bear the lash as well — and ain’t I a woman? I have borne thirteen children and seen most all sold off to slavery and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me — and ain’t I woman?”
