This month’s fashion look: David Josef Fashions
David Josef is a well-renowned fashion designer here in Boston–specializing in women’s clothing. Designing women’s clothing for over 38 years, he has done it all. He has been blessed to have sold his clothing in department stores across America–stores like Neimann Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales, etc–and has done television and movie work in New York.
David Josef Fashions, he says, is a “feminine, tailored, uncluttered, and simple look.” They are elegant designs which last for a life-time. His inspiration behind his designs stems from his clients who have grown with him over the years. He understands his clients needs and concerns from day one–taking the time to actually listen to them–and transforms them into beautiful celebrities, while still keeping them up to date with cultural standards. However his biggest pride and joy, is using his keen fashion designs to raise money for Amiee Takaha’s Farm Animal Sanctuary in Arizona.
In a recent fashion show, held at the Beehive restaurant in Boston, Ma, David hosted a charity event to commend the good works of his good friend Aimee Takaha. Aimee Takaha is not only a dear friend to David, but a lifetime friend towards unwanted and abused farm animals. Aimee’s lifetime career is rescuing unwanted and abused farm animals or animals that are going to slaughter house. “Aimee would actually go to these auctions, where animals could be potentially bought for slaughter, and buys them,” David says. She knows she can’t save all of them, but the ones that she does save are rehabilitated and loved back to life.
In a short video (below), which was shown at the fashion show, Aimee was commemorated for her great works in restoring the lives of abused farm animals–and how over time they are able to love people again. “They are loved back to life!,” David says. And through the power of David’s charity fashion show, and his great support group of friends and clients, they were able to buy all the seats at Beehive Restaurant and raise over $15,000 for Aimee so she can continue her good work at her farm in Arizona.
David Josef’s biggest advice for future fashionistas and fashion designers is to be passionate but know how to sew. “It’s tough,” he says. When he first started in the 1970s, there was nobody who was doing what he was doing. But now everyone is doing it. Regardless he says, “You need to have a passion; be poor for awhile; and most importantly know how to sew.”

On April 14th, 2015, The Black Law Student Association hosted their 32nd annual Alumni Dinner Banquet at the Omni Parker House–Honoring Suffolk Law Dean Camille Nelson. For all of us, this was a night to really say thank you to our Dean who has changed the face of Suffolk Law and the lives who study the law forever.
Dean Nelson has been an integral part towards the learning experience of students and faculty at Suffolk Law School. Under her leadership, Suffolk Law has moved forward in preparing students to practice law in a rapidly evolving legal marketplace and has launched the Law School’s Institute on Law Practice Technology & Innovation, which The American Bar Association’s eLawyering Taskforce this year has recognized its law technology program among 10 top programs in the nation. (Suffolk University Boston News)
However her most notable contribution to Suffolk Law School is increasing student, faculty and administrator diversity. “Further to a successful Law School Admission Council grant application, she implemented a diversity pipeline program, DiscoverLaw.org Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program, to encourage undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to pursue a law degree, “Suffolk University Boston News.
Thank you Dean Camille Nelson for everything. And although I have only known you for the first year of my legal education at Suffolk, it feels like I’ve known you for a lifetime. Your personality; your smile; and your commitment to students and faculty alike are a one of a kind.
You came to us as a star and are leaving as one.
I hate to see you go, but I know now that God has better plans in-store for you. Hope to see you again soon.

“We are chosen from God. Each of us has an assignment from The Lord: to care for his people and send his message. When we fulfill our assignment, The heavens opens up and comes to us closer. He pours his grace onto us.”
Pastor Jaime preached a powerful sermon of his own life story and how one woman twenty years ago did “her assignment” to bring Jaime closer to The Lord. He said I was her assignment, her fruit and now she can walk-in to heaven and have God say to her “Good Work, My Child” What an emotional sermon!

JP has created a new Youtube web series called “JPLovesit’s Hangout” made especially for her friends and fans alike- “It’s where music meets reality,” JP says. The idea behind the web series is to get rid of the middle man and allow artists to interview each other, themselves, and other fun stuff!
“I think this is an excellent idea because it will present an opportunity for my fans to get to know their artists even better, and see that there is a side to of all of us, besides the professional one. To summarize, this pretty much means an underground artist will have a chance to be in the spotlight and a chance for her audience to get to know her better!
As many of you already know, I’m quite down to earth. I love writing and talking about everything that goes along with passion, our feelings, love, and even subjects such as woman rights and empowerment. Besides that, expect a lot of fun, engaging, and interesting content, with special inspirational quotes, facts, images, gags and all that fun stuff in general!” –JPLovesit
