The caption read: this year of growth is almost over. Did you accomplish your 2017 goals? Have you started planning for 2018? What advice would you give to someone interested in joining the same niche as you? I received great responses and more than I thought I would. 2018 is off to a great start. Continue reading below.

Seven Questions with Model Sanvernetas Thomas

Seven Questions with Model Sanvernetas Thomas

Jar Brown: What does fashion mean to you? Sanvernetas Thomas: Fashion is a way of expression; an art I'm truly in love with. My style is very unique, outside the box. Many call my fashion sense "Missy Elliot" and she's actually who I'm inspired by. I'm not a fan of trends nor fast fashion. To me, it's about how I'm feeling, which personality do I want to be today, or do I want to make the public talk about me lol. JB: Your "Androgynous Series" is one of my favorite series you've done so far. Each photograph was captured so...Read More

In the Spotlight With Model Sanvernetas Thomas

I met Sanvernetas Thomas freshman year at Mississippi State University. He was one of the first people I met, and the only person I felt comfortable being around on what seemed like such a huge campus. We connected instantly. He has the most free-spirited and vibrant personality anyone would love being around. After freshman year, Sam left and moved back to his small hometown of Mantachie, Mississippi, but we kept in touch. Sam's the type of friend you don't have to talk to every day, but when you do, the conversations are long and always filled with light and love. After...Read More
