Today We Honor Samuel L. Jackson

‘Respectfully labeled as one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, Jackson is an undisputed star, demonstrated by the fact that his films have grossed more money in box office sales than any other actor in the history of filmmaking.

Jackson made an indelible mark on American cinema with his portrayal of ‘Jules’, the philosophizing hitman, in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction.”  In addition to unanimous critical acclaim for his performance, he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actor and won the British Academy of Film and Television Arts award.’ via samuelljackson.com

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.

Youth and Hip Hop w/ Queon Martin

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
