A Brand with Character


Paul Frank

You may remember him as the man behind Julius the Monkey but Paul Frank is so much more.

The collection is very fresh, irreverent and above all fun. Every garment has a little twist that makes it quirky and unique. The best example is probably the underwear. Check out the “Butt Hugger” three-pack ($28.50 - yes a three pack of underwear for under $30), which is actually a week’s supply. The red pair has Monday printed on the outside and then flips inside-out for the Tuesday side. Wednesday/Thursday is blue and Saturday/Sunday is Grey. What happened to Friday? Paul Frank says, “Who wears underwear on Friday?”

Not convinced? Then check out the Evil Poodle T-Shirt ($24.50.) Seriously, who could say no to Poodles with frickin’ laser beams?

Fashion Show

Universal Gear Fashion Show at Be Bar in Washington DC.

Great night for a fashion show. 9 hot models - great swimwear - and to top it all off the event was hosted by Kevin Aviance. The place was packed with an electrified crowd waiting to see Kevin and watch the models in a runway show.


Kevin kicked off the show with one of his latest numbers. Then the models hit the runway showing the latest swimwear from Universal Swim, Blueman & ChaCha Boy. Being backstage I could only hear how the show was going but by all the screaming, clapping and yelling I could tell it was going great.


After the show Kevin hosted an auction. Yes, we auctioned some of the swimwear right off the models. All proceeds from the auction went to SMYAL and I am happy to say we, or rather the models raised $2500.


You can check out the video of the show by clicking on any of the photos. Enjoy!
