ROGUE began a men’s collection of updated classic outerwear with downtown influences. Built around the lifestyle of New York based designer Jimmy Reilly, the casual masculine leather and cloth outerwear collection rapidly gained prominence in top retail stores across North America. For more than a decade Rogue’s distinct identity, fit and market leadership inspired its designer to further develop the vision. In the Autumn of 2009, the scope of that vision was realized in the expansion of the brand as a contemporary men’s lifestyle collection. New categories include washed and wired woven shirts, soft comfy knits and tees, chunky sweaters, warm vests and creased slim pants. The A/W 2011 season will mark the launch of a footwear collection for the brand. READ PRESS

Audrey Szeto is an artist and designer inspired by the intrinsically unique nature of each individual. She is always fueling her curiosity through the emotional and sensory responses of personal experiences as well as the recollection of memories. Whether through texture, weight or the feeling of constriction or exposure, each piece is about the process of transforming her ideas and sharing them with another. "The Safest Way to be" is a collection of garments inspired by methods of protection and self-preservation. Whether through suggestion of aggression or ritual practice, there is a connection between the physical and psychological that affords security and empowerment to the wearer. The emotional responses of the audience additionally become part of the story, as one cannot exist without the other.
Jennifer Schmidt was born and raised in Salinas, CA. I attended CSU, Sacramento and majored in Apparel Marketing and Fashion Design. While attending college, I designed for several local and school fashion shows. Once I graduated CSU, Sacramento, I knew that I wanted to focus on fashion design, so I decided to go to grad school at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. During the three years of attending the Academy of Art, I learned more than I ever could have imagined. Since I have graduated the Academy of Art, I have been freelance designing and working on my own collection. In March of this year, I made my debut at the ‘Gaultierize Yourself Fashion Show’ at the De Young Museum to celebrate the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit and looking forward to more opportunities. “Live, Love, Create”.

EVOLVh. The philosophy and inspiration behind our products comes from observing salon stylists and clients, and finding what's missing. We don’t want to redo or remake what's been done before, we want to evolve. We saw that both stylists and clients are increasingly looking for products made from healthier ingredients, but without giving up performance. We also observed a desire for simplicity, the ability to have beautiful hair without the fuss. So we set out to create products that are free from harmful ingredients, offer amazing performance, and simplify having beautiful, healthy hair. Simply put, our products are unlike any you have used before. We created styling products that perform multiple functions, reducing the need to layer multiple products. Our shampoo and conditioner will likely become your favorite, not only because of the wonderful scent or the shampoo’s luxurious lather, but mostly because of how good your hair will look and feel.

First introduced in four unique flavors—Blackberry, Lemon, Grapefruit and Pear—IZZE immediately caught people’s attention. Everyone from healthy moms and their kids to hip singles and celebrities discovered this natural wonder. The refreshing taste and iconic ‘slice’ logo soon became an everyday joy to share with friends and family.

Drinking Smart Energy Shots not only provides an energy boost but a welcome boost to our brain as well. It is rich in B vitamins which are essential for maintaining a healthy brain. We often neglect our brain, taking for granted that it gets all the vitamins and nutrients through our diet but that could be short sighted. We need to ensure it is well nourished to ward off suffering from health problems in the future such as depression and memory loss. A healthy brain is vital in almost everything we do: physical activity, speaking, walking and sight as well as mentally: such as problem solving and memory. We cannot afford to neglect our brains nutritional needs. Often it is only as we get older when we start suffering from memory loss and lapses in concentration that we begin to start worrying about our brain and trying to make sure it has an adequate supply of vitamins and nutrients, vital to maintaining its health but often it’s too late by then. Throughout our life we need to take care of our brain to try to prevent problems occurring with it when we get older.
