connie & jimmy - episode 2

In the second installment of “connie & jimmy”, an episodic 1940’s black & white mini-series, a couple deals with a hairy situation that’s not so black & white. Jimmy has all the best intentions but he can’t seem to avoid slipping up. Good thing Connie can keep him in check with her talent for turning classic songs on their heads in an effort to teach Jimmy an important fashion faux pas. “connie & jimmy” keeps your heart all aflutter but your feet on the ground.


Even though “connie & jimmy” are living in the 1940’s they’d be astounded at what visionary designers such as Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart of Vaute Couture and Joshua Katcher of Brave GentleMan are doing.

Paris Journal 2011 Part 1

James Koroni, Joshua KatcherWalking through the streets of Paris today I noticed that many Parisians present themselves in such a way that shows self respect and confidence. I don't mean designer labels and expensive accessories. I'll call it thoughtful. I appreciate their thoughtful sensibilities because I very similarly put thought into what I wear, for example, in the image above Joshua Katcher & I are both wearing vegan biker jackets from APRIL 77. The "Mastermind" shoes on the left are from Brave Gentleman, an eco-vegan brand. I previously wore these shoes for the dance promo video Cut Color Move. Here are a few vegan meals I've enjoyed thus far:

Airplane Food: chickpea masala, white rice & broccoli, romaine salad with tomatoes & olive oil/balsamic dressing & honeydew. Bon appétit!

Airplane Food, Enforced Arch

Dinner: grain baguette, Vitaquell Creme Olives, Vegi-Cheezly & Taifun Papillon.

Baguette, Vegan Cheese, Vegan Deli Meat, Olive Spread, Enforced Arch

James Koroni Choreographer Enforced Arch I am thrilled to release my proudest work yet! So many talented artists worked on this project including Layla Joy an Aveda Cosmetologist, Tracey Katof a commercial and Broadway Showcase Choreographer as the Assistant Choreographer, and Joshua Katcher a talented video artist from Perhaps Media Production Co. stepped in to help capture every moment I had envisioned for Cut Color Move.

Cosmetologist, Layla Joy, contributed all Aveda hair products and sourced them to be cruelty free and environmentally responsible.  Styling for the dancers was either borrowed, thrift or all cruelty free sourced vegan materials. Lifestyle icon, Joshua Katcher recently released his Mens Eco Shoe line which can be seen, worn by me, from his upcoming online store,

Without further ado, 'Cut Color Move'! For more on James Koroni and Enforced Arch website visit the About page!
