Stash & Ariston + Amber Pickens=Amazing Event !!


This past Saturday  the team  over at Stash & Ariston took on a Benefit Concert- “Ngoma Arusha” which was produced by Amber Pickens a second year dance student at the  Juilliard School.   The concert was held at George Faison’s Firehouse Theater on 124th.   The event was a great success and featured  amazing artists such as Abdur-Rahim Jackson, who recently choreographed the LED section of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” 2013 Super Bowl performance.

photoThe team was so proud to work this event “I knew this was going to be an amazing event, what a great group of talented artist!” Julius Stone said while talking about the event. The purpose of concert was to help raise money for a arts teaching experience for Ms. Pickens over in Tanzania, where she will be presenting  dance classes and seminars to local students.

Catching up with: Sam Moodie, The First Lady of BullDog Bikes

Julius  Stone, one of the  contributing writers at BDG Industries  recently got in touch in with Sam Moodie,The First Lady of Bulldog Bikes to see whats  been popping across the pond!  Cheer-O and DR Who and such

BDG: Hey Sam, how are What have you been up to professionally?
Sam Moodie: yoyoyo waaaazzzuppp!!! How are you Jules, I been so busy making moves in a variety of genres. Yes most people will associate me with BMX stunt riding ,but I also; Aerial Hoop,Fire Dancing, Pole-Dancing, ParkourFashion Design, Modeling- Adidas /Leg Modelling, Olympic stunt double for Shanaze Reade, Presenter for Eurosport.  I love trying new things =]12279_456817981043135_1944906219_n 398352_456810574377209_1641498300_nBDG: Damn you been  pretty busy. So tell me what inspires your fashion sense?

Sam Moodie: I literally catch things and go into mid daydream, eventually get hold of the materials to customize to whatever I managed to wrangle in my brain. If that makes sense. I really don’t like to repeat clothes which is really bad I have so many, and I really don’t like seeing someone else in what I’m wearing! Stubborn! I want to be on my own level, I’m comfortable like that. It feels like the wild wild west everyday. So  I always get the urge to change an item of clothing before I’ve got the price tag off it.


BDG: So Sam what are you feelings on women in extreme sports industry

Sam Moodie:Love it! girls run the world! it so sexy, sexy women all over the world dominating and shredding at sports! its nang! and I hope it pushes other girls into doing more with their lives and living a bit! Instead of going straight to the kitchen :] there is never enough time… so don’t waste it, tomorrow we could be gone, yesterday could of been the best day of your life, for the 8th time, there is no limits now, you can do anything with the power of the love, live to love your life!


BDG: That is really inspiring to hear, and so honest thank you for that, I noticed you recently did an amazing photo shoot, how did you link up with the photographer?

Sam Moodie: OHHH MYYY GAWWWWDDD , this girl! she’s like my twin! our minds connected with such great ideas, but basically Jimmy Mac my bmx & lifestyle mentor  hooked up me up with link to this talented artist and she already had a concept all planned out for me. so when I arrived on set,  it took me off my feet, we explored so many different styles in one day, really utilized her time with me AND I LOVE THAT BECAUSE THERE IS  NEVER ENOUGH TIME!  I really loved the outcome of the photos. We’ve grown a great bond between us  and are already planning many  events & projects to work on in  the future.


BDG:What inspired the shoot

Sam Moodie & Adanne W: The shoot was inspired by Sams look. I did my research on her and noticed that most of her shoots were focused on her BMX riding image. But I could see an elegant classical look to her also..Despite the tattoos and piercings, she had an old fashioned look to her.. her face is striking and so is her body and she’s clearly very photogenic. So the shoot was a mixture of Sam’s femininity and her style, but taking that and placing her in a different era. [Adanne W Photography]
