Artist of the Day: Kerin Rose

I met Kerin Rose at Sneaker Pimps NYC in 2006, when she amazed me by carrying one fabulous bedazzled Chuck Taylor in her bag. She’s now famous for her spectacular eyewear (, worn by the likes of Rihanna, Grace Jones and Lady Gaga. When I interviewed her for Girls Got Kicks, I had to ask if she’s still carrying magic kicks in her bag…

My bag is always filled with sparkly magic tricks! I’d love to work more with sneakers, but right now outside of eyewear, I do mainly face masks and head pieces. However, any and all of my clients that have seen the shoes lose their minds without fail. Very few singular items can literally drop a jaw the way a Converse covered in 3000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals can. 


Artist of the Day: Loni Schick

Loni Schick, a tremendously talented young photographer from Toronto, pours her passion for sneakers, hip hop, skateboarding and travel into a wonderfully vibrant eye for photography.

She is currently Subeditor and a significant contributor to the awesome female street culture publication, C.O.P. Magazine and has recently joined RESPECT. Mag as an online photo contributor.
