BLACK GIRL MAGIC : CHLOE X HALLE

Black Girl Magic definition : It is a term used to illustrate the universal awesomeness of black women. It’s about celebrating anything we deem particularly dope, inspiring, or mind-blowing about ourselves.

Chloe x Halle

I found out about Chloe x Halle in 2013 when Beyonce shared their cover of “Pretty hurts” on Facebook  a track from her self-titled album. Ever since I have been following the girls on all Social media because of their incredible voices (Queen B approves) and their unique style.

Chloe x Halle had been posting covers of hit songs for seven years before being discovered by Beyonce. Since then they have performed at the White House and featured in Elle as “Beyonce’s New Musical Proteges”.

One fact about me, I like discovering new music, artists etc and recently i’ve been listening to Chloe x Halle’s first EP album on iTunes entitled Sugar Symphony. They wrote and produced nearly the whole EP on their own. If you haven’t heard of them before I suggest you give them a chance and it’s safe to say you will be obsessed with their voices. They ran a Poll on twitter asking us the fans  to chose our favourite song on the EP , seriously I couldn’t chose because each song brings something different to the table. One thing I can say about this EP is that it’s amazing and thanks to Chloe x Halle for blessing my ears.

REPLICA BY DESIGN BUTLER

Design Butler

During the Easter holidays , I had the chance to go check out a self-funded exhibition by the 21 year old illustrator Design Butler who is also from Ravensbourne University. The art exhibition took place on Brick Lane in Shoreditch where all the creatives go seeking for inspiration ( I say good choice of location).The project titled REPLICA showcased a series of illustrations of beautiful  women who he’s majorly inspired by , 20 casted white cans and  NMD Adidas shoes that was made out of concrete.

What caught my eye about the exhibition besides the stunning illustrations  was the abundance of white , the floor , the ceiling and the walls. As soon as you get inside the door of the exhibition, the floor was filled with white balloons which ended up flooding a part of  the street and luckily the staff were there to rescue them. When I was walking through the balloons ,I felt like a child again but  had the fear of being the first one to pop the balloon.

People had the chance to meet Tej Adenuga (Design Butler ), ask him any questions and also take pictures. Overall, this was a fun  and inspirational exhibition  for me as young person. I felt like the world was my oyster and i could do anything after seeing his success. Check out his work on  instagram and also the collection is now available to purchase.

I vlogged the experience if you want to check that out:)  the video is below.                                         Thanks guys.
