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: 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]

Connecticut isn’t just known for Nutmeg

Someone on staff recently spotted a dope pair of jeans that had a logo tag  modeled after the state of Connecticut.  The stumbled  upon pair of custom jeans  were crafted by HTFD Denim Company , which is located in Hartford,CT.

After doing some research, we emailed the guys over at HTFD Denim  to ask them more about the company. This is what I found out; the company was founded by three owners, Luke Davis, Marshall Deming and Dave Marcoux, in Spring 2010 and later became incorporated in Fall 2010.  They  source the majority of their denim from Cone Mills in North Carolina, however they  are also known to use heavy weight Japanese  loomed selvedge denim.  The company offers a lifetime repair policy with every pair of jeans.  Whether your split your jeans while pop-locking on the dance floor or free styling on your bmx, they will fix the jeans for as long as you have them.
