AML Industry, I have had the opportunity to interview some important names in America’s music industry including Diddy and Common. I have also conducted some really high profile interviews in America’s fashion industry including my interviews with Vivienne Westwood, Donna Karan and the late Alexander McQueen (RIP). Nevertheless, my interview with Yetunde Taiwo of ICY PR, for my magazine Ladybrille, has been by far the most exciting interview for me. Peep the cover. Hot, right? Yup! I’m feeling it too.
