Story of STYLE: Versatility in Style

Dennis Robinson II

Hey Hey Fashionistas & Fashionistos!

Written by: Tasha Henderson

I am baccccccccckkkkkkkkkkk!!!!

I know you missed me and my interesting outlook on Fashion and Style. I will blog more about Men’s Fashion & Style this year, Scout’s honor. Today is Valentine’s Day and every year on V-Day I try to have a Men’s Fashion Blog or submission published. On this Valentine’s Day Blog, I will discuss “Versatility” in Style, because being versatile is so important for many reasons.


“Versatility in Style” can be beneficial for several reasons such as:

Versatility in style tells a more detailed story with your looks.

Versatility in style stretches your wardrobe so you can have more options of looks.

Versatility in style allows others to see different sides of your personality.

Versatility in style assures that you can be ready for any occasion (no limit).

and more…

My muse of choice is a very dope media professional, who hails from Nigeria, by the name of IY, who is heavily known for his wondrous works as the hype man/host for DJ Cuppy (one of the biggest Afrobeats Djs in the world), Radio Host at Happenings Radio of the TGIF Show and more. IY’s background includes NTA Ekiti, UPSS and CANP World aired on ITV Benin, ITV Abuja, NTA Benin, UPSS FM Infinity where he has hosted shows, interviews and anchored Entertainment Programs. As a master of ceremony, compere and hype man he has strategized and hosted events for delectable brands that include government agencies, corporate organizations, pageants, modeling campaigns and entertainment & music events. Alongside being the official hype man to Dj Cuppy, IY has been inclusive of the Pepsi Lituation 2018, DJ Cuppy Easter Cactus on the Roof 2018, Ecobank Express City Giveback, Continental Basketball League, Union Bank 100 Year Party and many more. I was able to catch up with him and walk with him through his “Story of Style”. IY taught me how important “Style” was in his field and inspired me to write this dope blog on Men’s Style.

TASHA: Hey IY, can you tell me more about your career and what it entails?

IY: Yes sure, I am a Event & Radio Host ,Hype Man, and TV Host, and I am responsible for coordinating events, bringing wittiness to help the audience enjoy the show or the event.

IY in action, he really moves the crowd

TASHA: How important is Fashion/Style in your field of business?

IY: I have two quotes that I love and they are “Looking GOOD is GOOD Business” and “Dress the Way You Want to be Addressed”. Fashion and Style are so important as a host and I sometimes coordinate months in advance about what I will wear for certain events. I am very detailed with my style. It depends on the type of event, because the event can influence my inspiration of style.

TASHA: What is your favorite color(s) and why?

IY: Red and Black are my favorite colors, Red is an energy color and as a hype man & host I am suppose to be the main source of energy. The color Black is that one color that can go with everything, black is so diverse.

TASHA: Who is your favorite designer or brand?

IY: Honestly, I have no particular favorite brand or designer, because I just wear what looks cool on me. I am huge on supporting local designers in Nigeria. I am the type of person that I can put on an expensive brand and mix with an upcoming designer brand.

TASHA: What is your “Go-To” Style?

IY: I love being comfortable & gentle class, you can wear casual clothes and still stand out, so I would say my go-to style is sneakers, jeans, t-shirt, and cap. If I had my way, I would dress in suits all the times, because it’s gentle & sticks out.

TASHA: Last question IY, where do you see yourself in 5 years?

IY: I will be one of the biggest hype men/Host in Africa, not just Nigeria.

What I totally admire from IY is how he can literally wear any style and make it his own. Throughout this blog you will see him in so many styles. He has no stylist, this is pure God-given talent. I love the way he pays attention to details with accessorizing as well and he is not afraid of color, he wears tones that advance his style even more. Take a look at more of IY’s personal style and how he rocks the mic at his events, LIVE and in STYLE!

Saucy Sunday

Dennis Robinson II

Happy Sunday to All!!

Forgive me for my long Hiatus.

I recently visited Nigeria (a couple weeks ago) and I must admit that this trip was one of the BEST trips I have ever taken! I took the trip to Nigeria, because I was a Guest Judge and VonRay was the featured designer for "The Eleventh Fashion Show" (TEFS 2016) in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria. This was VonRay's first international show, God is good. I loved every beautiful model that I was able to work with, they represented VonRay Designs like no other.  I plan to do more work in Nigeria again soon! Nigeria inspired me spiritually and creatively. The designers that I saw showcase, were beyond AMAZING.

I want to give a shoutout Sisco (IG: @6cojohn) and Junior (IG: @mcjustine17) for making sure I was taken care of on my entire trip in Nigeria. Sisco actually was my finale Male Model, and he won "Best Male Model" for "The Eleventh Fashion Show". Sisco is Mr. University Africa 2015 and has been modeling & doing fitness for years, also featured on magazine covers, in editorial spreads, participates as community leader and more, so I was blessed to have him hit the runway for VonRay.

The coordinator of TEFS 2016 (IG: @theeleventhfashionshow), Angie Thomas-Jibodu, was one of the most pleasant and God-filled women I have encountered. She also has a several successful businesses besides TEFS in Nigeria which are  JT Angies Emporium Limited, JT Angies Models and JT Angies Event Decor. She is a woman of many talents and a beautiful heart!

I am so glad she invited me to be apart of this great show. So many people loved our aesthetic and particularly our VonRay Distressed T-shirts & Tee Dresses.

This Blog will be showcasing the "VonRay Distressed T-shirt & Tee Dresses" in different ways and on different sizes & body types. This Tee Dress compliments almost any shape. Here is how I wore my VonRay Distressed Tee Dress on the Red Carpet & also check out a few of the beautiful Nigerian models rip the runway in VonRay!!

I also had the great opportunity to connect with Latasha Ngwube (IG: @latashalagos), who is the founder of "About That Curvy Life"  www.aboutthatcurvylife.com) and contributing editor to Vanguard Allure Magazine. Latasha's most recent success was her groundbreaking Full-figured runway show during Lagos Fashion Week last month, which was the first of it's kind! Latasha is my namesake and we call each other sisters! She invited me up to her headquarters in Nigeria and interviewed me for her well-known publication & we conducted "Curvy Conversation". Please view link below:

Latasha N. also found a new love for VonRay's Distressed T-shirt and recently wore her VonRay Distressed Top to a Christmas Party in Nigeria. She truly can wear any style! I even got to raid her closet and check out all of her fabulous apparel, shoes and accessories when I visited her a couple weeks ago... Can we say "Too Much Sauce"...

Saucy Sunday Style Post:

Last but Not least, I was inspired today to do another look with my VonRay Distressed Tee Dress, so I paired it with my Lane Bryant Faux Leather Moto Jacket, which is a beautiful electric blue color, my VonRay Mesh underlay, Lane Bryant Fishnet Stocking and Torrid Boots that my sister Lazelle James, who is by the way one of the best MUAs i know in NYC. The accessories I wore were VonRay Eyewear from our website www.vonraydesigns.com and we ONLY have a few pair left, Necklace from Forever21 and Cross Earring from Hottopic.

Special Thanks to Shakeera Bacon for my hair.
