Africa is frequently in the news with stories depicting the poverty, starvation, and cruelty that exists in the country. A Michigan based nonprofit organization called “Little Dresses for Africa” has found a way to help children in Africa get clothing they need. Talented seamstresses in over 31 countries sew dresses for the nonprofit organization that are sent to the little girls in Africa that need them. One particularly talented seamstress is Lilian Weber.
She set a goal of sewing 1000 dresses before she turned 100 years old, and Monster.com reported that she made it when she was only 99. Lilian’s selflessness in wanting to help children in Africa has made her a big hit in her Davenport Senior community. She has proven the importance of our elderly, and that age doesn’t have to stop anyone who has determination to help others. Lilian says she plans to continue to sew dresses.
It is that time of year when winter coats come off and sweaters are packed away. Spring time is more than watching the flowers bloom and the trees come to life, it is also a time of a change in fashion. In the fashion world everyone is buzzing about the latest from top designers and what their spring collection will look like. Just as thrilling as the designers and their latest contribution to the world of fashion are the models used to showcase it. Top designers have been trend setters with highlighting not only their clothing line but the models who flex them. In the world of men’s fashion, this also proves true.
One of the hottest up and coming male models today is Matt Landis. He has demonstrated his ability to turn a style into what every male on the globe wants to wear. With his chiseled good looks and impeccable body, there is not anything that does not look great on him. Certainly the whisper campaign is in full swing regarding where fashion watchers can find his swagger. He recently updated his portfolio, which showcases why he has earned the reputation of being a sought after fresh face.
In one photo of him wearing an unzipped light grey jacket of an airy fabric with brown leather strips at the shoulders, he is depicting an easy breezy look for the spring breaker. Of course, others will take off running with this look by changing the colors and partially zipping the jacket.
In another photo, Matt is seen wearing a light lavender colored jacket with a tri-colored purple checkered cotton shirt underneath. This is easily something that can be worn during the spring to the office, an afternoon affair or a club with outside seating. Again the look inspires an opportunity for colors to be manipulated and buttons to be undone. This ensemble could be completed with a pair of jeans, casual slacks or shorts depending on the destination.
The last photo of Matt that screams about his boyish good looks and casual style is him wearing a college sweatshirt and a cotton shirt underneath. No matter what the season, this is a staple that every man can wear with confidence to a myriad of incognito events in the spring season.
Whether it is the men’s or women’s clothing line, excitement is in the air. New York City is gearing up for fashion week as the flagship of fashion shows. It is also the forerunner for the next stop in Europe with shows in cities such as London and Paris to name a few. Spring has sprung and everyone wants to know what they should be wearing throughout the season for any occasion. If the pictures of Matt Landis are any indication of the eye candy trend this spring season has in store, it is going to be a hot one.
