Dapper Dan recently landed a partnership with Gucci. Not much is known what the two brands are putting together. This has once again put the spotlight back on an entrepreneur that grew up in Harlem with a dollar and a dream. His recent collection is reflective of the style that was popular in the late 80’s. This collection of clothing is truly an art form in itself. This 80’s style is resurrected through an authentic tastemaker that started a boutique during this era. His boutique consisted of piecing together brand-name logos on jackets and over-coats. During this time he was creating something that people had a taste for. He seen the people loved Gucci, so he gave them Gucci.
Dapper Dan being the iconic cultural figure he is. He worked exclusively with the likes of Beyoncé. The fashion designer is also going to have a bio pic created in the likeness of his success. Showing his tales of growing up with holes in his shoes then becoming a legend. Dapper Dan business has fell apart then rebirthed from the ashes, still keeping the clients he had worked with. He sees the world of hip-hop as a culture that helped shaped the identity of many Americans closets. The impact hip-hop has on fashion is undeniable, and he proudly wears the essence of it on his sleeves.
More than forty-million adults suffer from depression according to Anxiety And Depression Association Of America. Half of the people that have diagnoses of anxiety are left untreated. People that checks in the hospital due to high stress levels are often kept under diagnosis for psychiatric care. How many people are going to go through this epidemic we call depression ? With numbers that are daunting I personally found ways depression can be overcome through personal observation and experience.
I believe depression triggers from worrying inside our mind. Actually depression may be a sign of genius. Are brains are here for us to feel, see, and create. I believe it is all in how we channel thoughts for a positive out-come in our reality. Some Americans may feel stuck, waiting for that next success to break though. Maybe depression comes to finding a healing point from a traumatic experience we felt deeply. Depression is a sign of our mind working out realities we are unhappy with. I believe balancing out Depression is finding the root reason of why we are depressed first. You can not find a cure if you do not know what triggers this disease that attacks you.
As a doctor, I can diagnose all kind of medicines that will try and raise dopamine levels. A natural chemical in the brain that is suppose to come from natural stimulation. Now if you a n*gga in the hood going through stresses, like real life stresses. You often turn to unhealthy coping mechanisms or even let the pressures that surround you over take. When in reality depression can be eased by ridding of toxic people. Toxicity can be felt by those who are not willing to see you strive on the next goal you reach. People who down-play what you are doing, constantly judging with a magnifying glass with-out offering solutions on what can help you out. Being stuck inside of a hell-hole job with a boss that is over demanding. Doing daily routines just to make ends meet. A trap us as Americans do not have a choice but to fall into. Families not being valued at the utmost, leaving people feeling isolated and alone. This also applies for friend based relationships to. We live in such a fast paced world we often question ones self-identity on how to keep up.
Depression can be fixed in my opinion(if you are clinically sane), by changing the narrative of your story. The law of attraction is a very true statement. You ever felt like your soul has been so deeply poisoned, negative thoughts over-take your being. You felt so deeply poisoned you became the Squidward sitting behind your stationary work place waiting for that hour of excitement. In that case, attracting unfortunate circumstances with your deary outlook on life. Focus on your path and live out your desires to the fullest. No I would not say you are depressed. I think you may be unsatisfied with the situation of what is going on around you. Do not let money define you’r happiness because it sure in the hell will not buy self-respect. You want to wake up in the morning feeling fulfilled to accomplish what your heart desires. I believe that is why we mourn so deeply at a funeral. We never gave chances on how life would be if we embraced our hearts desire. We often give are will away a lot of the time, not knowing the full potential of what this fire holds. Knowing this, become the best person you can be then the human being that holds stability will follow.
