AphroChic Magazine and Thermador brought a group of creatives together to discuss how we can make every moment count together.
Homes of Brooklyn is a monthly series where we talk with artists, designers and tastemakers in their own spaces in the borough we love – Brooklyn. In episode 2 we take you inside the home of fashion designer, Reuben Reuel of Demestiks New York. We are sincere fans of Reuben’s work. His Dutch African wax print dresses have been spotted in Harper’s Bazaar, New York Magazine, and on some of our favorite celebrities (oh you know, just Queen Bey herself). One step into Reuben’s home and we could immediately feel the space that nurtures his creativity. From a collection of R&B records stacked in his fitting room, to the colorful display of Dutch African and vintage fabrics that are used in his work, his home is a true reflection of the soulful spirit that guides him. Click play to explore the Bed-Stuy home and studio of your new favorite fashion designer, Reuben Reuel.
Home is a reflection of who we are. Brooklyn is home to some of the most interesting people and eclectic design styles in the world. In collaboration with Mae B. Films, we are excited to announce the launch of AphroChic TV and a new series that sets out to find Brooklyn’s Modern Soulful Style. Homes of Brooklyn is a monthly series where we’ll be talking with artists, fashion designers and tastemakers in their own spaces. Our first stop: touring the home and studio of Brooklyn-based, French-Senegalese photographer, Delphine Diallo. We fell in love with Delphine’s soulful black and white photos on Instagram and PurePhoto.com, and with her pictorial exploration of evolving femininity and global identity. Truly an artist on the cutting edge of photojournalism, we are thrilled to take you inside the space that fosters her creativity. Click play to tour Delphine’s home in Bushwick.
