Inspired by Queen Tut and Q The Sun’s avant-garde juke single “Cantaloupe”, this lookbook’s visual and sound is yet another declaration of Queen tut’s true-to-self-image, smooth lyricism, and passion for her art. This lookbook personifies the femcee’s lyrics through bold prints, soft pastels, bright neons, and whole lot of black girl/boy magic! There’s eclectic influences, deep synths and high booms throughout the entire audio track creating this bold visual presented before our eyes.
Cantaloupe: The Lookbook was shot by MKE based photographer Mahdi Gransberry, whose fresh interpretation of Wisconsin hip hop renaissance has gained him recognition, and inspired this collaboration. Tut promotes individuality, black beauty, and personal style in this unique, boundary-pushing editorial. With the assistance of Fashionable Demand’s creative set-director Michael Ja’Ameer, plus the aid of multi-talented artist & choreographers Britell Higgens & Shaverick Allen, Queen Tut steps closer to the goal of bridging Mke’s music scene with the waves that are happening throughout New York City.
The full Look book is featured on Queen Tut’s Instagram !

“The Outsiders” is a series of photos focusing on personal-style driven individuals throughout the boroughs of Brooklyn and NY. Being a Brooklyn citizen himself Chris is often surrounded by fashionable peers and colleagues,many of which he’s created amazing images with. Our collaboration with Chris Callaway for this project came to fruition from the fateful moment our very own creative director, Michael Ja’Ameer (literally) bumped into Chris in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY with the ever stylish freelance artist at his side Tevin Shaton. Call it fate or mere luck, but Chris happened to be shooting for Brooklyn Magazine’s September street style issue, the encounter eventually landed Michael on the cover of the September issue.
Fast forward to now, we got the opportunity to work with Chris and many amazing NY artists on this photo-series exploring the personal style, and confidence that “The Outsiders” exude. This series captures that raw organic vibe that you wont see in your everyday fashion tabloids or blogs, so that’s the focus that Chris aimed for as we shot in various boroughs throughout NY. This series is channeling many aesthetics but keeping it raw, pure and directly from us!
The story of the chosen, Rose Golden – Kudi
Personal style doesn’t have to meet the conditions of whats a “look” or whats “trendy“, all of the artists featured have pushed through those boundaries and created a space that lets us be ourselves.
Fashionable demand gives a huge thanks to photographer Chris and the amazing artist we got to work with on this series, for more follow the link below!
