New Classic :: Suspenders & Wingtips

Today is the official anniversary of my very first photo shoot :-D! Here are some photos that didn't make the cut. Think of these as my blooper reel. (check out the original post here ) These pictures were taken by a friend of mine and budding amateur photographer. S/O Emphocus! I was extremely nervous and could not help but be self conscious the whole time. I mean the only time I've been in front of a camera was for my school photos....and we won't be sharing any of those lol.

As someone who has never liked having his picture taken, this was huge for me. These photos were taken not too long after I had lost quite a bit of weight, and was my first step into taking care of myself fashion-wise. So needless to say this will be my throwback this week.

Do you guys remember the first time you had your picture taken?

Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
