clarity, elegance, and status
Brand Statement: Your vision and imagination is precious no matter where it comes from as long as the ideas are true to oneself. Success starts with where you see yourself. One day you would like to live comfortably, so start taking the necessary steps needed in order to make it to where you want to be. But maybe you are where you want to be, so enjoy that and take advantage of every opportunity you have to live life to the full. This isn't just a fashion brand, this is something with purpose, something with motivation and hope. Come with me as I follow my dream and hopefully it will push you to follow yours. I always wanted to start a business, fashion was my choice because of how I love to combine clothing and make it look unique.
People always tell me "only you can pull that off". Things like that inspire me. Be unique, that's all things brand asks for, be yourself, no one can take that from you. Your sight, what you see, the visions you have, are golden...
A company by Emmanual Rodriguez
“The neo-soul is STRONG with this quintet — watching them onstage (and they're definitely a live band) is an education in peristalsis as each of them extracts nutrients from the sound. Their fundamental affection for Elliott Smith and Wilco shines through in both the steady-eyed, phrase-conscious songcraft and the lid-bursting turns of filigree. More often than not, however, the ensemble kinks into hyperspatial, cardinal modes: D'Angelo (harmony like roux; telepathic rhythm), St. Vincent (secret, sur-pop dance; pedaled leads that nonetheless feel absolutely naked), and many more. Together they declare a project in psychedelic soul, a chamber concern with no small share in the sincere. Hear their debut album “Loves You” at Madam West.” - Pete Longofono, BIG FIGMENT (Source: Madamwest.com)
Madam West writes driving, tightly-arranged songs from the intersection of mind and gut. Here are grooves to match your exquisite hips to, and characters to love or hate with equal parts gusto. If you listen closely, you'll detect odd chords to nod in or out of accord with, shiny synths and loops to wrap your brain around, and a few vocal leaps of faith.
The debut LP "Loves You", the EP (not pictured), and a compilation of singles are available for purchase and download at Madam West's Bandcamp. (Source: Bandcamp)

Simply coining Fernando Pintado as a painter is a mockery of the word. Hailing from San Juan, Puerto Rico, this multi-faceted creative uses silk-screen canvases and acrylics to illustrate his world of Alternative Rock and Free verse poetry. The imagery from his works and videos couple seemlessly with his pieces; capturing the audience's attention.
