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.

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!

SAVE Me Navy

I want to start off this blog with a dope smile and praise to God. Dennis and I styled Woody McClain for the B.E.T. Awards 2017. Woody killed his performance (dedication to Bobby Brown) in the best way that you can imagine. We are super proud of him & so grateful that he trust VonRay to style him! God is good. We decided to keep him Clean,Chic, but Edgy mixed with a slice of Youthfulness. Woody has nice bowlegs, so we wanted to add edge to the whole suit trend and styled him in Cropped dress slacks, and paired this trendy suit style with a plunge neck line graphic tank, graffiti Adidas shoe, The Dapper Dude Collection Matte Pendant (one of my favorite accessory brands) and a rustic necklace. Check out his Look below.

I titled this blog post "SAVE Me Navy", because I found this dope dress for only $4 at H&M. Clearance & Sales always SAVE ME, lol. You can totally find pieces on a budget. I know some of you may be asking... why didn't I just make me one of this simple dresses, well purchasing this was cheaper than buying fabric, lol. Dennis is also a great shopper, you can give an unrealistic budget and he can find the best pieces. He also has on some great pieces on this blog that were frugal finds. On this blog I will not talk (type) much, I will explain the pieces that Dennis and I wore... Enjoy your view!

Hello ALL!

I lowkey miss ya'll...I have been so swamped with VonRay's "DAMAGED" FashArt Exhibition preparations and designing the Unconventional DAMAGED Collection. We had the first FashArt show in Shreveport, LA, our hometown to kick off a FashArt Tour and it was INCREDIBLE. So, grateful to GOD. We had three showtimes on June 4th and each show was sold out. I will be writing a blog soon to talk about the Damaged Tour... Houston,TX is the next city we will hit in July! We were also was granted our own Proclamation by the Mayor Ollie Tyler of Shreveport,LA our own official day... "VonRay Day" is June 4th every year!! This is so legendary for VonRay.

Official Proclamation for VonRay Day on June 4

Thank you Dr. J Pickens for working with us and making this happen, you are super Dope!

Now Lets Talk Fashion... Obviously thats what you are here for!

I was prompted to make a bunch of Denim pieces, because of a vivid thought of my beautiful late mother. She loved denim, 98% of her wardrobe was Denim. That's one reason I was super excited to be connected with Mah-Jing Wong last season on Project Runway, we had that instant Godly connect and his design aesthetic of designing denim reminded me of a soft spot in my heart for my mother's love for Denim. My sister and I actually still own a lot of denim pieces from my mother's wardrobe. God gave me another great inspiration and it was my sweetie pie, Charleste Cotton, who is a MUA and Full-Figured Model. We have had the pleasure of having her Model and as a MUA for VonRay Fashion Shows & VonRay's Damaged FashArt Exhibition. So, I was scrolling IG, something I rarely do & saw a couple of dope photos of her wearing a Crop Top, can we say she LOOKED GORGEOUS. She inspired me to create the Light Blue Floral Cropped Top (which I named after her "Cha-Floral Crop") that you will see on me later on in this blog paired with a Denim Wrap skirt I made and a Lane Bryant Denim button-up shirt. I decided two weeks ago that I wanted to create a mini-collection of simple Denim, transitional seasonal pieces for Full-Figured Women & call it "Fat Girl BLUEZ". This collection will be presented in PFW (PlusSize Fashion Week Africa) in September (Praying God allows everything to go well).

Check out these two beautiful crop top looks from Charleste's Instagram:

I love the color palette & pattern marriage in this look from Charleste.
