Visual Journalism Student/ Photographer/Fashion Blogger. I love finding beauty where others don't, and I believe art can be found almost everywhere. Old and new, we can learn from all, and getting to a place where you can realize that is probably the most freeing a person can feel ever. But basically I love Fashion, and the designers are the artists with visions and their canvas' are us and the world, and I love helping spreading that message. "Ultimately isn't that fashion is about? We're all a bunch of big kids playing dress up." Feel free to e-mail me @ andrewwwhester@gmail.com to talk about anything!

-VOGUEpedia is OPEN! -After launching their own website at the end of last year, Vogue.com has launched Voguepedia, which holds VOGUE archives where visitors can base their search on designer, brand, model, "personality", and beauty.

-Oliver Peoples trademarks The "Gregory Peck" specks. (For a limited time!) Now you can go on a 'Roman Holiday' or channel the style of Atticus Finch during the great depression-('To Kill a Mockingbird').

-McQ of Alexander McQueen has launched their own Official Tumblr with links to their Facebook, Twitter, and video sharing sites, YouTube and Vimeo. Welcome to social networking you dreaming masters of fashion, you! Photographer, Niall O'Brien took a trip of spontaneity with the world of McQ up the Western U.S. coast to create campaigns pairing small town scenery with raw imagery to create genius works of art and branding. ALSO -(old news, but,) Alexander McQueen - "Savage Beauty" was this year's Met Ball exhibit inspiration. The genius work of the late Alexander McQueen opened on May 4 (and will run until) July 11 at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Met Store even has tiny McQueenadillo ornaments, a book featuring the work displayed in the exhibit, "Savage Beauty", and other gifts. Must haves for any fan of the journey/work of Alexander McQueen!

UPDATE: After already having 150,000 visitors to the McQueen Met exhibit only one month into its' showing- the exhibit has been extended until August 7!! -Giving the world to get up close and personal with this genius work for almost one full month!
