Several weeks ago, I had the privilege of connecting with J. L. King via Twitter. Over a series of days, I Twitted several kind messages to him to spark interest in my clothing line and IT WORK!

Now if you’re not familiar with J. L. King, he’s a New York Times best selling author who appear on The Oprah Winfrey Show to speak about his book entitled, “On the Down Low”.

After 15 years of first book, I collaborated with J.L. to design a custom tank to wear on the red carpet and promote his latest novel, “Love on a Two Way Street.”

This tank is a two-tone composition of a black jersey with fine grey pin-stripes and white cotton, tone-on-tone shirting fabric. The white portion is adorn with Swarovski crystals and although the photo is deceiving, the tank is sleeveless and collarless.

For more photos and to read my interview with him, visit my blog at www.ze-menswear.blogspot.com.
