A Starry Night Soiree Benefit

I recently had the pleasure of attending a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Having done battle with cancer, it was important that I show up even for a little bit to show support (and for the wine). The event was held at Capitale, located at 130 Bowery in Manhattan. After passing coat check, taking the obligatory selfie, and grabbing a white carnation I stepped foot into the grand hall. It was my first time in Capitale… and trust me it didn’t disappoint.

The view was breathtaking! Looking out at the room all you could see was a sea of suited/gowned people sipping champagne, up again rose colored walls with intricate designs. The crowd was very mixed. A few of the local hip elite, news anchors, small time celebrities, supporters, corporate executives, and athletes were in attendance. The event lasted two short hours and climaxed with a short awards ceremony. A choice few supporters picked up awards, and survivors were thanked with a clip package. I would've done a ootd, but I was on the "verge" all evening as my friends say lol. All in all it was a great night.

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.
