There is just one life for each of us: our own. - Euripides

Our first style of the week is Jay Craft, a young black male with vision and style . I'm not sure how to define is style; however, something about him stands out amongst the rest. If you feel you have what it takes to be style of the week feel free to email us at with your best photos (outfits preferred) and why you feel your fashionable & different.

1. Who inspires your style & why ? My biggest inspiration is New York City.  I like cultural inspirations because its a conglomerate of what is taking place in many places & a viewpoint of what many different people classify as art.  New York is a melting pot of many cultural themes & expressions.  As an artist, I really try not to look to others for inspiration because I feel as if it dilutes my vision.  Styles I admire are Andre 3000, Russell Brand, Steven Tyler, Pharell & warriors I.e. samurai's, sultans etc.
2. If you could wear an item or accessorie all year round what would it be? I've been fortunate enough to live in a city where I've encountered incredible artist's with distinct visions. When it comes to anything I wear, I like to find pieces that are geared to what I want to portray.  This leads me to buy things in limited production, alter things, vintage shopping & w.e.  I'm not the type 2 cop a pair of LV shades just to be down.  I got a bracelet made to resemble a barbed wire affect by a great friend of my named Soull.  Her line of jewelry is called Alkemi9.  She's dope, she is who I turn to when it comes to Crafting for the Craft lol.
3. How do you describe your style? It's really hard to define a style, because I don't feel like I fit into a category in any aspect of my life, so I can't really place a label on it.  If I had to describe it in 5 words I'd say dynamic, ambiguous, eclectic, intrepid, kinetic.
4. Tell us anything.. (Hobbies, interest, dreams, aspirations etc.)  All of my ambitions are artistic.  I'm solely focused on career progression & legacy.  I've been working on Acting in theater since Jr. High.  The past 3 years I've ventured into film & television with modeling on The Tyra Banks Show & partying in an episode on How to make it in America along with other progressive but humble beginnings in other productions. I'm currently seeking representation & freely working on style ventures & choreography & music production.  I just wanna live & breathe art in any way for as long as I live.  I definitely have the ambition & interest, I guess I'm just focusing on the access.
