I adore Peter de Potter. He put a smile on my face today with the email he sent concerning his new website where he showcases for the first time, framed pieces of his work.

"For me, it was interesting to see how black has evolved from being the color of exclusivity, worn primarily by noble families, to today’s popular, democratizing choice for modern wardrobes. (A shift due in no small part to Chanel and her revolutionary little black dress from 1926.) Elsewhere, there are the odd brilliant flashes of gold, silver and white — but all in all the show, is a true ode to noir."

My colleague at MDC , Betty Sze uploaded a post on OTM titled, "Change Begins Today" which contrasted the inaugration of Barack Obama as the President Of The United States with the lack of color on the Milan FW 09 men's runways (as per a Guy Trebay article in the NY Times). The following day I was at a shoot for frillr.com with an unsigned black male model. The subject of why there has been no black male super-star since Tyson Beckford came up. I was asked why did I think that was . I found myself stumped. Not because I didn't have a point of view on the subject but more truthfully, because I had several complicated and conflicting ideas about the issue. A whole frenzy of questions came to mind.
