Sunsets Remembered | Atlanta celebrates life of fashion friend Matthew A. Weaver, Jr | Obituary

July 1, 2015

Atlanta celebrates life of fashion friend and icon … (Obituary clipped courtesy of friend Carlos Coleman)

Matthew Weaver a Virginia native and was no stranger in the fashion industry. In fact, whenever he was out on the town, most people wondered “who was that well-dressed man.” From the modern compliments of nice outfit to the modest of just a head nod, Matthew definitely knew how to stand out from the rest with his classic sense of style, sophistication, creative flair, and solid presence of what a gentleman should look like.

After graduating from college to become a teacher, Matthew quickly changed career paths and decided to follow his passion: fashion. He obtained his fashion niche in New York City over 20 years ago and migrated to Atlanta where he worked in a men’s store in Buckhead. Growing frustrated of the fashion market dictating what men should wear, Matthew focused his eyes toward custom wear prompting him to strike out and launch his own store called “Manstyles.”

Blogger Suicide: Karyn Washington For Brown Girls | #theClippings

April 11, 2014

To blog is to become voice of that which one champions.  Karyn Washington championed Brown Girls with her blog For Brown Girls.

FBG was created to celebrate the beauty of dark skin while combatting colorism and promoting self love! FBG was created to celebrate darker shades of brown- to encourage those struggling with accepting having a darker skin complexion to love and embrace the skin they are in. However, women of all shades may take away from FBG the universal and essential message of self love and acceptance.
