Apr. 5, 2014 | Dandies Project | Handsome Cycles | Mpls 


This month marks the introduction to a project that will continue for years to come. Mr. Moody and the guys from Playfessionals started with a small idea that flourished into a premiere event that took place downtown at Handsome Cycles and a photography booklet that exudes pure dappery. (a made up word yes but fits very well in this case.)


The Dandies Project is a photo project designed to highlight the positive impact that many men of color have brought to their own community not only doing it with a sense of purpose but a sense of style! The Mission is to highlight the positive influence & impact that men of color have in their community while keeping a strong sense of individuality thru personal self awareness and style.


The event was superb. Shanazzy dressed individuals showed up to a pop up style party that replicated a scene out of Soho. AVIV vodka was on hand to promote their new product. Mr. Shu and company was on hand providing the beats that would mingle guest in the first half and delighted guest with dancing the second half after the lights went down.


Phrases all night, floated with the tunes of  "we really need more events like this," or "this is such a great event with great people." The vibe felt exclusive, the feeling felt elusive, like no matter how proper you looked there was someone else just as nice.


I thank the crew for coming up with a great idea that will benefit all for a good cause. It is very inspiring and I can honestly say, even before this project they have already had an enormous positive impact on me as well as those around me!
