      CLIENT:SIGNATURE STYLES

DECEMBER 2019

THE PRODUCT OF TWO AUTHORITIES STEMMING FROM TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES, FUSE FOR AN ELECTRIFYING REVEAL.
SCHARAD LIGHTBOURNE, RENOWNED BAHAMIAN PHOTOGRAPHER HAS ESTABLISHED QUITE THE NAME FOR HIMSELF, INTRODUCING PHOTOGRAPHY IN A LIGHTING THAT FORCES ALL EYES.

AS A PIONEER IN HIS INDUSTRY, SCHARAD RE-INVESTS HEAVILY INTO BUDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS, MENTORING THEM ALL WHILE CAPTURING STUNNING POLAROIDS OF SOME OF THE LARGEST NAMES IN THE REGION.
WHILE IMMERSED IN HIS WORK WHICH DICTATES A RATHER OVERWHELMING SCHEDULE, IT LEAVES VERY LITTLE TIME FOR PROJECTS OF THE HEART. HE SAYS BEING THE CREATIVE THAT HE IS FIRST, SOMETIMES LEAVES HIM FAMISHED FOR A CREATIVE PROJECT, ONE THAT HE CAN CALL HIS OWN AND THAT IS BORN FROM A PURE PASSION IN PHOTOGRAPHY.


THIS COLLECTION WAS PRECISELY THAT, A BIRTHING OF A VETERAN PHOTOGRAPHER'S SOUL; BRINGING IT TO LIFE HOWEVER WOULD CALL FOR A CLOTHING LINE THAT WAS EXPANSIVE IN ITS COLLECTION YET EXQUISITE, BEARING FIERCE VARIABLES AND A TEAM WHOSE FASHION SENSE PURELY DISTRACTS.

MITZI TURNQUEST, FASHION CONNOISSEUR AND FOUNDER OF BAHAMIAN FASHION EMPIRE; SIGNATURE STYLES, PARTNERED WITH THE NOBLE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE CAPTURING OF HER BRAND'S 4 TIERED HOLIDAY COLLECTION WHICH FEATURES BOLD REDS AMONG OTHER HOLIDAY LOOKS. AS HER BRAND MOVES TO ON-BOARD AN INTERNATIONAL LINE, TURNQUEST THOUGHT IT THE PERFECT TIMING FOR A PEAK IN THE BRANDS LOOK AND FEEL IN THE CHANGING OF THE COMPANY'S ENTIRE BRANDING SCHEME, LOGO, INTER STORE COSMETICS AMONG OTHER UPGRADES. THIS PHOTO-SHOOT WOULD SERVE AS JUST ANOTHER FEATURE TO THE BRANDS FULL OVERHAUL AND SEAL HER EFFORTS PLACING SIGNATURE STYLES IN DUE POSITION AS THE LEADING LADIES FASHION BRAND LOCALLY.

SHE ALONG WITH HER TEAM COLLABORATED WITH LIGHTBOURNE ON A SET THAT OVERLOOKED THE LUXURIOUS COMMUNITY OF OCEAN CLUB, BEARING FLOOR TO CEILING GLASS WALLS AND A MEMORIZING VIEW OF THE ATLANTIC. THE AMBIANCE ALONE WAS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD, AMPLIFIED BY MODEL AND SOCIAL INFLUENCER; DENISE FRANCIS.
THIS CAMPAIGN SHOWCASES THE PROFOUND POWER OF COLLABORATION BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY RAISES THE BAR IN EDITORIAL FASHION LOCALLY. THE COLLECTION DEFINITELY OPENS YOUR SENSES FOR A BETTER PRODUCT IN 2020 AS THEY HAVE CERTAINLY OUTDONE THEMSELVES THIS YEAR. ALL LOOKS ARE AVAILABLE WITHIN THE MARATHON RD LOCATION COMMENCING 10:00AM DECEMBER 3RD WITH A SIP AND SHOP EXPERIENCE. ALL ARE WELCOMED.

      CLIENT:THE NATIONAL BRAIN INJURY FOUNDATION

NOVEMBER 2019

VICTIMS OF BRAIN INJURY NOW GIVEN A VOICE

THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE NATIONAL BRAIN INJURY FOUNDATION

 

DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE, DON’T DRINK & DRIVE, WEAR A HELMET, CONTROL YOUR HYPERTENSION AND STRESS, MAY ALL SEEM LIKE SUCH CLICHÉ DIRECTIVES. DIRECTIVES, OFTEN IGNORED UNTIL THERE IS A COLLISION OR SUDDEN RUPTURE IN THE BRAIN AND INSTANTLY THESE CLICHÉ STATEMENTS UNFORTUNATELY BECOME; IF ONLY HE OR SHE HAD OR HAD NOT…

THIS PAST SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH, 2019, MARKED THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE NATIONAL BRAIN INJURY FOUNDATION. A VITALLY NEEDED AND DESIRED SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR PERSONS BATTLING COMMON BRAIN ASSOCIATED ILLNESSES. THE EVENT WAS HELD WITHIN OCEAN CLUB ESTATES, PARADISE ISLAND IN A PRIVATE RESIDENCE THEREIN, ELABORATELY LIT & DRAPED IN ROYAL BLUES AND WHITES-COLORS IN COMMITMENT OF BRAIN INJURY, BUTLERS PACING THE VENUE WITH HEALTHY VIBRANT HORS D’OEUVRES. THIS MOMENTOUS EVENT BORE SOME VERY DISTINCTIVE FACES IN MEDICINE SUCH AS PEDIATRIC SURGEON; DR. ASHANI KNOWLES, FOUNDER OF BOTH THE MERIDIAN SCHOOL & WINDSOR SCHOOL AT ALBANY AND OLD FORT; MRS. LISA MCCARTNEY, DR. RICHARD DEMERITTE; AUDITOR GENERAL, JASON MCCARROLL OF MCCARROLL REALTY AND GANDHI PINDER-OWNER OF SAPODILLA AND BAMBOO SHACK RESTAURANTS JUST TO NAME A FEW. CORPORATE BAHAMAS WAS WELL REPRESENTED IN SUPPORT OF YET ANOTHER NOBLE MILESTONE IN BAHAMIAN HISTORY. A JAZZY AND LIVELY AFFAIR, BEARING DANCING, LIBATIONS AND ASTOUNDING SUPPORT FOR A GREAT CAUSE.

STEPHAN DAVIS, ICONIC BAHAMIAN ARTIST, PROVIDED LIVE PAINTING AS A SPECIAL FEATURE AT THE EVENT, WITH THE FINAL PIECE SHOWCASING A WOMAN OF COLOR YET IN BLACK AND WHITE WITH A COLORFUL AFRO DRIPPING ONTO HER SHOULDERS. TITLED, “BEAUTY IS NOTHING WITHOUT BRAINS”, THE PAINTING ONCE COMPLETE, ENTERED A SILENT AUCTION WHOSE PROCEEDS WOULD BE THE FIRST OF MANY CREDITS TO THE FOUNDATION AND ITS GOALS. THE SUCCESSFUL BIDDER; DR. KEVIN BOWE, MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF COLINA INSURANCE AND WALK IN CLINICS, WAS AWARDED THE PIECE BY THE FOUNDATIONS FOUNDERS ALONGSIDE “STEPHAN LEGEND” HIMSELF. THERE WERE ALSO ONSITE DONATIONS PROVIDED IN ADDITION TO PLEDGES.

WHILE CANCER PREVAILS AS THE TOPMOST SPONSORED ILLNESS IN THE BAHAMAS, WITH AIDS AND CARDIAC DISEASE TRENDING CLOSELY BEHIND, THIS LEAVES A GRAVE LACK OF SUPPORT FOR KEY, WIDESPREAD ILLNESSES THAT EFFECT THE BRAIN LIKE CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT (CVA) OR STROKES. THE FOUNDATION IS PRINCIPALLY FOUNDED BY PROFESSOR DR. MAGNUS EKEDEDE  WHO IS NOTABLY A WORLD-RENOWNED NEUROSURGEON WHOSE ACCOLADES INCLUDE: PERFORMING THE FIRST EVER LOBECTOMY IN THE BAHAMAS AND FIRST TO PERFORM BRAIN AND SPINE SURGERY IN THE TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS. ALSO, IN ATTENDANCE WERE CO-FOUNDERS & TRUSTEES: DRS. MELISSA EVANS, REBECCA EKEDEDE, AND MITCHELL [TY3] WHO PROMISES THAT THE FOUNDATION WILL BE A STRONG FINANCIAL BACKBONE FOR PERSONS AFFECTED BY BRAIN DAMAGE BE IT TRAUMATIC OR ACQUIRED CASES. PRINCIPALLY THE FOUNDATION’S CORE ASPIRATIONS IS THE FORMING OF AN INTERNATIONAL REHABILITATION CENTRE THAT WILL ALLOW PATIENTS NOT ONLY STATE OF THE ART EQUIPMENT BUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN TO THEIR ABSOLUTE BEST PRE-DISEASE STATE.

THE BRAIN CONTROLS EVERY SINGLE ELEMENT WITHIN THE BODY, ENTERING THIS SPACE THEN, IS NOT ONLY COSTLY BUT COMES WITH A SIGNIFICANT LEVEL OF RISK AND IS HEAVILY ON PAR IN BOTH COST AND LIKENESS TO OPEN HEART SURGERY. MOST INDIVIDUALS CANNOT AFFORD THE CARE, RANGING EASILY AT ABOUT $400,000 PLUS PER YEAR TO RECOVER AND REQUIRES A VARIETY OF VARIABLES SUCH AS THE MONEY AND OR GREAT INSURANCE, THE RIGHT DOCTORS AND MEDICAL TEAM, SPECIALIZED REHABILITATION AND A FAMILY OF EMOTIONAL SUPPORT IN ORDER TO FULLY RECOVER. WITHOUT THESE CORE VARIABLES, MANY FIND THEMSELVES SERIOUSLY DISABLED OR DEAD.

THE FOUNDATION’S PRIMARY VISION IS TO BRING AWARENESS TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN METHODS OF PREVENTION AND TO ESTABLISH A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM TRAUMATIC BRAIN AND SPINAL INJURIES INCLUSIVE OF MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES[TY4]  AND LASTLY, TO KEEP BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS CURRENT AND IN THE FOREFRONT OF NATIONAL CONVERSATION.

IT IS CERTAIN THAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD HAS BEEN OR HAS HAD A FAMILY MEMBER AFFECTED IN SOME WAY BY A BRAIN DISEASE. SOME OF THE MORE COMMON ARE ALS, ALZHEIMER ’S DISEASE, PARKINSON’S, DEMENTIA OR MEMORY LOSS, AUTISM AND NEURODEVELOPMENTAL RELATED DISORDERS, SEIZURE DISORDERS, CHRONIC HEADACHES, SLEEP DISORDERS, STROKE AND VASCULAR DISEASES, BRAIN & SPINE TRAUMA CAUSED BY AN ACCIDENT OF SOME KIND, MS & AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, BRAIN TUMORS AND OR MENTAL ILLNESS. HEARING THEM AND IDENTIFYING WITH THEM SOMETIMES MAKE PERSONS GO…” I DIDN’T REALIZE THAT WAS A BRAIN DISORDER”, BUT THEY ARE ALL IN SOME WAY CONNECTED TO THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE BRAIN. THERE ARE EVEN CASES OF BRAIN ILLNESS BROUGHT ON BY NON-COMPLIANCE TO PRESCRIBED MEDICATION(S).

BOTH DR. EKEDEDE AND DR. EVANS OFFERED THEIR GRATITUDE TO THOSE THAT ATTENDED AND EXPRESSED THE HEARTBREAKING REALITY OF HAVING TO WATCH AS A PATIENTS LIE HELPLESS, BATTLING BRAIN ILLNESSES AND INJURY KNOWING THEY HAVE NO INSURANCE OR MONEY TO FACILITATE THEIR HEALTH MANAGEMENT AND REHABILITATION. THIS IS WHAT INSPIRED THE INITIAL CONVERSATION OF THE NATIONAL BRAIN INJURY FOUNDATION. THERE WERE MANY IN THE AUDIENCE WHO WERE ABLE TO, FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, SPEAK TO STORIES OF LOVED ONES PASSING IN THE FIGHT OF A BRAIN INJURY AND DISEASE. MR. ANDRAE EVANS - A TRUSTEE OF THE FOUNDATION AND A SPEAKER WAS AN ACTUAL SURVIVOR; HE WAS COMPLETELY OPEN ABOUT HAVING HAD THE VERY BEST EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, FINANCIAL BACKING AND HEALTH CARE POSSIBLE BUT STILL IS CHALLENGED DAILY. ATTENDEES WERE REMINDED OF THE MANY WAYS THEY CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND TO HELP DEFEAT BRAIN INJURY AND DISEASE LOCALLY.
