You are not alone... (by Gaurav Sharma)

When tears of sadness streaks your face,
You are not alone.
When you feel lost and out of place,
You are not alone.
When it seems you can't carry on,
And everything you do is wrong,
You are not alone.
When you open your presents on the holiday,
You are not alone.
When nothing can seem to spoil your day,
You are not alone.
When it seems like you made it through,
But there's no one to share this feeling with you,
You are not alone.
You'll never be alone when I'm around.
I'll cheer you up when you are down,
And whether you are happy or feeling blue,
I will always be there for you.
So when you feel alone and in dark.
Just keep me in your heart,
And you will never be alone.

STYLE- John Varvatos, ..excellence in style!

John Varvatos was on "King Of All Media" Howard Stern's radio show today.. I loved his interview and I love his clothes. Good taste and great style by a good guy!

check it out...

John Varvatos Fashion House

In late 1999, Varvatos started his company, debuting his first clothing line at the end of 2000 in New York. The brand now includes belts, handbags, footwear, eyewear, watches and fragrances.

In September 2000, within months of showing his first collection, John Varvatos opened a freestanding boutique in Soho. The collection is currently distributed in all John Varvatos boutiques including the 315 Bowery boutique in the space that formerly housed the underground music club CBGB. In addition, the collection is available in select luxury retail stores and specialty boutiques.

In 2001, John Varvatos was licensed to create a line of high-end Converse shoes; a partnership that still continues today.

2009 saw the launch of New York Nights, a monthly radio show hosted by John on SIRIUS XM’s The Spectrum channel. The show includes songs and interviews from various artists who have influenced John throughout his career in fashion.

In 2012, John joined the cast of celebrity mentors on NBC’s Fashion Star, a new reality competition series that searches for the next big brand in fashion.

John Varvatos credits his early obsession with rock ‘n roll as the catalyst for his interest in fashion. The ad campaigns for the main collection, shot by Danny Clinch, have featured such musicians and bands such as Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Velvet Revolver, Chris Cornell, Dave Matthews, The Roots and Green Day.

Music is also central to the brand’s philanthropic efforts, including the Save the Music Foundation the annual Stuart House benefit.
