Last night Aloft Ballantyne (Charlotte) hosted our first secret soirée to celebrate the unveiling of our March Issue and Man of STYLE, the NBA’s Ramon Sessions. The Myrtle Beach native graces the cover of The Dream Issue which highlights the art of dreaming big and tools to make those dreams a reality. The shoot features Sessions at Aloft hotel wearing designers carried at local and national retailers.
On the cover, photographed by Nusrat Mulla and styled by Roderick Hawthorne, Ramon wears a Penguin Suit, and stands next to his Fisker Karma . Ramon’s hair was cut by Jack Allen of Slicers Barber & Styling Lounge and makeup by celebrity makeup artist Fatima Butler. The editorial also features looks curated by our Charlotte Fashion Director and Wardrobe Stylist Jesse Pellington and photographer Porter Garner.
The invitation only guest list including bloggers, fashion industry insiders, philanthropist and members of the media, tweeted and shared their photos with Sessions and caught a sneak peek of the “Dream Big” film by GoodEye Media featuring Sessions as he’s interviewed by our Editor – in – Chief Brie Wright.
Guests were also the first to meet STYLE’s new addition to the team, Lindy Maddox, Charlotte Market Editor & Social Media Coordinator.
Though the editorial makes its debut in about a week, STYLE subscribers will get the exclusive first look at Sessions days before the editorial is released online. Subscribers will also get the first look at the Making the Magazine film which features behind the scenes footage of the Sessions shoot.
