Black is Definitely the New Black

This year Pantone named Ultra Violet the color of the year explaining that Ultra Violet signifies “originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points to the future.” Ultra Violet is a fantastic color and we will surely see a lot of it this year, but is anyone else feeling like Black could possibly be the color of this year after watching the 2018 Golden Globes on Sunday night? Of course, we love black for all the obvious reasons like it has the amazing ability to make you look chic and trendy, and at the same time classy and dauntless, but I think this year Black has a whole new ring to it, unity. Each and every woman looked completely unique and beautiful in their black attire on Sunday, from Issa Rae’s shimmery black gown and cape to Christina Hendricks’ sultry pants suit. Every woman stunned on that carpet and the best part is that they did it together. This year black will signify unity, courage, hardcore woman power, friendship, and mad love. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m thinking Black is the new Black. Time’s Up and the winds of change are blowing.  

Bert's Entertainment Complex Shoot

Bert’s Entertainment Complex is the home away from home for many Detroit jazz and blues musicians. On any given Friday night you can find some of Detroit’s finest belting it out on the Jazz Room’s stage. Bert’s at Eastern Market is the one of the many passion projects of Bert Dearing. Detroit is a beautiful city with a beautifully complex past and Bert Dearing is a large part of Detroit’s past, present, and future. Bert Dearing grew up Detroit’s Black Bottom neighborhood. Black Bottom was a neighborhood in Detroit where Black American men and women could own and operate successful businesses before the 1950s. Black Bottom was known for its authentic jazz and blues scene and delicious cuisine. Bert wanted to create an atmosphere that mirrored the excellence and success of that neighborhood and so Bert’s Entertainment Complex was born.

 

Bert’s is a fantastic venue for a wedding and reception and we wanted to showcase that. Taking on some of the sultry jazz roots we wanted to create a scene that embraced the history of the club, but also allow some new, edgy, geometrical inspiration. This style shoot is heavily textured with shapes, colors, and styles all pointing to musical undertones.
