MET Fashion Photo Show Artist Spotlight Presents Fashion Designer "Lamont Antwan"

Good evening ladies and gentlemen and thank you for joining us in a special edition of the MET Photo Fashion Show blog. On Tuesday evening at the Sky Room, Lamont Antwan & Tawni Michelle produced an incredible show called "Tribal Fashion". As usual, Tawni Michelle and her team of makeup artists brought their incredible makeup skills and transformed the runway of the Sky Room into a fantastic, tribal adventure in fashion. The designs seen this evening were produced by Lamont Antwan. Lamont brought his latest designs (A+Dreams) creating another magical moment at the Sky Room.
I can say a lot about Lamont and his creations but he was nice enough to share his bio with me so now I am sharing it with you the audience. I have also selected a few of the photos that were taken during the event. As usual, if you would like to see the entire show, please visit my Facebook page; "MET Photography's Fashion Photography" page.

Lamont Antwan also known as Twa BlackHeart was born in Harlem, New York. As a youth growing up in the public housing projects, he gained his strength by overcoming the common challenges and battles of the streets. To escape his harsh reality, Twa explored creative writing, in which he was able to create a world that was peaceful and loving.
While in the second grade Twa was commissioned to write a poetic love letter for a fellow classmate who was too shy to talk to a girl. When word got out of the success of Twa's love letter, before he knew it, he had a generous clientele of students, and his first experience as a business man.

By the sixth grade, writing took a back seat to his new found love of basketball. He devoted his life to the sport, and decided this would be his way out of the projects. Twa had a successful basketball career until he entered college at Maryland Eastern Shore, where he lost his desire for the love of basketball. From the disappointment of a dream shattered, Twa left college and moved to South Florida.

While in Florida, Twa defined his self identity, found confidence, and re discovered his love of written art. In addition, he explored the creativity of acting and modeling. He was casted in a Gatorade commercial along side of Dwayne wade, acted on The Burn Notice TV show, appeared in print ads, and walked in numerous fashion shows.

While on a short trip to NYC to visit with family, Twa was in a severe car accident, that took away his ability to walk. Through this difficult time, a back brace became a fixture in his life, as he nurtured himself back to health.
During these unforeseen yet humbling circumstances, Twa began to write. He wrote about his hardships and heartbreak. His trials, tribulations, joys, and triumphs. He published these unique moments into a book titled, “Just Thoughts Free Art.”

In his latest venture Twa has established a brand and lifestyle company titled Made Perfect Entertainment. Under the brand, he produces books, film, and fashion. He is currently working on his clothing line A+Dreams, a Punk Rock High Fashion line, that expresses his style and experiences from his writings.

Twa has come a long way since his humbling beginnings in the projects of Harlem New York, and knows he has many endeavors to still fulfill. He believes, " With a sense of purpose and belief there's no limits to what life can offer". Twa Blackheart's life shows us that you can tackle any obstacles placed in your path, and still achieve success.
