NYC Fashion Week Kick-off: Meet Designer Michele Lovetri

One of the great things about ZazenLife is that we genuinely enjoy helping people out with any start-ups, foundations, charities, non-profits etc. We were once a newly born website looking for guidance and direction, and we received it from people that we consider business partners today. Karma is an amazing thing. Sharing and spreading positive energy with anyone can go a long way.

Since Fashion Week has started up in NYC, we decided to promote a non-profit called CITYarts, Inc and up and coming designer Michele Lovetri. She is a handbag designer who started last September 2012 and has quickly impressed the fashion world. During her latest show, they raised $2,000 for CITYarts. Check out some pictures of her work and latest fashion show below!

What the Hell Did John Lennon See in Yoko Ono?

This is just one of my random rants that I had to let out. While surfing the internet aimlessly, I came upon some videos regarding Yoko Ono – and yes, she’s a moron.

Some will say she is the true reason that The Beatles broke up, and I wouldn’t doubt it. Yes, there are some other reasons like George Harrison’s emergence as a songwriter and their managers death, but  I would have left the band too if I had to deal with that idiot every day. I hate to say anything negative about John Lennon, but this guy was Yoko Ono’s bitch. He literally brought her everywhere – even the recording studio. This violated a previous agreement between the members not to let wives or girlfriends into the studio. However, Lennon made it clear that she would be allotted artistic input into the band’s recordings. Ono would comment or make suggestions in the recording studio, which only pissed off the rest of the band!
