I recently had the opportunity to sit and chat with wardrobe stylist, life stylist, talk radio show host, Author, and Pastor R. StylR Louison. With twenty years of experience in fashion and the creative arts, R. StylR sat down with me to discuss his journey to where he is today as well as his AuthentiCatNation.
Brown City Shakers are trail blazers, creatives, risk takers, all adjectives that lead to Thomas Knox. He had the audacity to believe he can sit in a busy NYC subway station and get people to stop in the middle of their commute to interact with him...and he did!
#Datewhileyouwait was birthed to promote human connection using a table, 2 chairs, one flower, and a board game. He invites people to have a seat, play a game and engage in old school communication. His hashtag took over the internet and he has been featured by every news outlet you can think of. Being a New York native, this was all mind blowing to me. I have for years watched people even side eye the kids selling candy in the train station, so I had to learn how Thomas did this.
