One of the first events I was invited to cover was the show and release party for Stevie Boi Shades’ new line “The Woods”.
Stevi Boi is similar to A-Morir, only slightly more affordable and edgier. The event began with mingling; cupcakes, drinks, photographers, other designers, etc. Many of the guests were exceptionally dressed, but my iPhone and only camera were dying so I didn’t get too many pictures from before the show, though my friends for AllEyesOnWho.com got some great pictures which can be found here. Some of my favorite images that they took of my favorite dressed girls…
Fans and Stevie Boi. The girl to his right in the blue; she’s actually wearing a hooded blue body suit and she had gorgeous shoes on…Just saying!
And now, shots of the line :
The entire line was inspired by fairy tales, as you can see; Rapunzel, the wicked witch, Hansel and Gretel, goldilocks; all with an urban spin. LOVED the entire show! Like the shades? buy them online at StevieBoi.com
and lastly, a picture I’m in!
Enjoy! next to come? My coverage of the Alice and Olivia presentation! with ACTUAL camera pictures!!
Sure, its still raining out, but I’m SO ready for sun, especially with the release of 12 new designs by A-Morir. Designer Kerin.Rose brings you the choicest shades to stand out in style. Top clients include the infamous Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Estelle, and Katy Perry. These stunning shades and frames were also recently used on the Fall/Winter 10 runway show for Christian Siriano. All A-Morir shades are totally unique and so skillfully crafted; no one yet has even attempted to reproduce them. The brand, the inspiration, the repertoire are all spectacular.

Kerin.Rose seems to be inspired by Past pop/rock idols as well as particular style era’s. The newest products include a pair of Iggy pop inspired frames beaded in black as well as Janis Joplin inspired oversized shades and Petula Clark inspired funky framed shades.
My favorites, though, are the A-Morir classics. “Barracuda” shades are some hip hop favorites, made of black studs with a car tint effect; people can’t see you through the shades, but you can see them. Second favorites are the Sioux Lace Eyewear. I’m a big fan of lace for the upcoming season and what better way than rocking out and blocking out (the sun)!
Customer and consumer favorites appear to be the many variety of Love/Hate convertible sunglasses. These shades have a chain (or diamonds or pearls or neon chain…etc) that can be worn a multitude of ways. Each style is encrusted with beads for added flair.
As for price, these fashionable sun blockers are pretty high (when compared to the $10 Kanye wanna-be’s you can find on the street). Prices range from $150 up to $600. But you’re paying for originality and a total statement piece, so in my opinion, its worth the splurge.
