What’s up in lifestyle and tech?

It was a “Oh Happy Day” about to happen when I arrived at City Hall in San Francisco in great anticipation of the historic inauguration services of the first African American woman to be elected as Mayor of San Francisco – LONDON BREED. I had no idea that my arrival at 6:30 am, for a program that began at 11 am, would be noticed by the KRON4 news crew. I was asked to do a live interview about the inauguration that would air in 15 minutes. I was thrilled for the opportunity. I shared …more >>

On May 5th & 6th, 2018 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, more than 5,000 women gathered for the 2nd Annual 2018 United State of Women Summit.

Y’Anad Burrell: “Fashion is beyond a passion, it’s my ‘Lifestyle’. This vast industry goes far beyond beautiful clothes and jaw-dropping accessories. It’s one of sexiest industries where style is communicated and translates across generations and cultures both verbally and with non-verbal statements. The infusion and influence that art and technology has made in the fashion industry is extremely exciting and certainly a move of the 21st Century. Over the years I’ve traveled to many runway shows both nationally and internationally, written for several publications as a Fashion Editor/Blogger, instructed at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and as the Founder & Creative Director of the largest and longest running charity fashion show on the West Coast, Fashion On The Square (FOTS), now in its 10th year, the culmination of those experience is the impetus of this column – Fashion + the Arts. Enjoy!”
