HBCU Grads Appear in Patricia Pinto’s La Creme Fashion Show

Published

Both the fashion and entertainment industry were affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. But not as much as you might think. Fashion shows have had to go virtual and eliminate the physical crowd in the room, but that hasn’t fully stopped them. La Creme Angels Inc. held a fashion show last week to raise awareness for breast cancer.

The show featured models from Patricia Pinto’s La Creme Modeling & Acting agency, many of which are HBCU graduates. Patricia Pinto says she planned on having a show with an audience before COVID-19 but then New Jersey started to see coronavirus cases. She had to reinvent the system and go virtual or there would be no show for people to watch.

11 HBCU graduates modeled for various top fashion designers in the virtual show. The graduates, mostly from Morgan State University, prepared on their runway walk for months to perfect it. A fashion show is a great way for talent and viewers to get their minds off of the pandemic, state lockdowns, and keep them up to more great things.

La Creme Angels has held many fashion shows in the past but this was their first virtual one. Francesca Pinto, one of the event’s planners, says they have always livestreamed the fashion shows they’ve hosted so that people who can’t make it can watch them at a later time. The internet is a powerful tool to use because anyone can watch the fashion show from any part of the world, at any time they wish to.

A lot of precations were taken before the event happened. All of the models had to get COVID-19 tests and the runway room was deeply sanitized weeks before the big day of the long awaited show. Some of the designers brought unreleased garments. Many of the models walked the runway in props like angel wings, winter scarves, and face masks.

Discovering ‘Calling Out’ Anjalts Tinkering Piano Ballad

Published

on

Trevor Wayne -Writer

Noise-canceling headphones on, and it’s onto another round of new music Friday, scrolling and listening from all genres coming through the streaming platforms.   A litmus test to the senses and one song stood out with an uncanny magical effect to hit repeat.  The song is ‘Calling Out’ by multi-talent wunderkind Anjalts, an emerging super-shy artist I had the pleasure of meeting about a year ago when she released ‘Somewhere in the Sky’ and a bunch of other super releases.  But this soft ballad of a quiet tinkering piano pulsates like a heartbeat against the thunder and raindrops lingering in the background filling up my headphones with sounds that immerse your noisy brain to just sit back, relax and let it in.   Feel the prana flowing in like eternal sunshine of bliss, except it’s a rainy thundering rainforest feels and Anjalts celestial voice calling out from afar.  It’s an intimate ballad right from the start.  The effects composed by this rising star fuse a very different approach in a neo-pop psychedelic arrangement of atmospheric serenity not felt in a long time.  And it just keeps getting better.

‘Calling Out’ is reshaping the way mixes are done to inspire the senses instead of turning up the volume of the boom in our ears to the point of deafening effects.  Anjalts is an eco-aware artist/songwriter that exudes nature into what she creates with a consciousness of reminding us of the bigger picture, challenging our humanity as caregivers of the earth to do better.  And why not?  Isn’t that what art is supposed to do?

Lyrically the song talks about time.  Speaking to the artist on the phone, she had me wondering and getting all philosophical because it’s hard not to, especially when you listen to her soft voice asking you a riddle like “what is the real wealth we as humans have?” I said my paycheck on Fridays *wink~ And the answer is Time!  The choices we make in that little time-space are key.  Her songwriting in verse one resonates:

Time

Is all we have again

I want to run away with you

Do you think we’ll make it through?

Time

Is all we have left

I couldn’t see what you were going through

I wish it was me and not you

Calling Out, Calling out to you

Anjalts music is like a therapeutic outlet especially learning about the struggles faced by young people today regarding depression and suicide rates impacting their daily lives.  I do try ‘not’ to watch the news.  Still, every time I peak on my smartphone slide over to see what’s up.  It is not complicated to understand the extraordinary challenges youngsters confront today, which probably weren’t there 20 years ago.

‘Calling Out’ is magically uncomplicated and empowering.  It’s a shout-out to start the dialogue of facing these hardships, and maybe we have to begin resetting our noisy brain back to nature.  A reminder from a down-to-earth artist breaking the mould for young people and what kind of future is in store for them.  It’s an artist growing too in a chaotic time where escapism to deafening sounds seems easier than listening to the birds in the trees or the rain droplets on a rooftop.  Eventually, the noise, the hype and the lights died down, and there is only one more click to the next song in my headphone.  And in the distance, a tinkering piano improvisation of unpredictable sounds and a soft ethereal Anjalts voice ‘Calling Out’ to you.

Like a reset button to calm focus and subtle awareness. Like a breath of fresh air.
