Launching a new magazine is a labor of love. There are so many details that go into creating the perfect inaugural issue. The first issue conveys what readers can expect from your publication going forward. For us, it was crucial to get our first cover exactly right. Featuring New York interior designer Dani Arps, we had the perfect cover girl, but we also needed the right look. That’s where fashion designer Reuben Reuel came into the picture. The designer for a celebrity clientele, including Beyonce, Jill Scott, and Andra Day, Reuel designed the perfect piece for our cover girl that had people asking, where can I get that dress? (more…)

The National Museum of African American History and Culture

On Saturday September 24, 2016, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, part of the prestigious Smithsonian Institution, will open its doors to the public in Washington, D.C,  inaugurated by President Obama.

An event not to be missed, as the museum tells the African American history starting with slavery, then segregation, the civil rights movement, and finally, the election of the first Black American President.

If you can’t get to Washington D.C anytime soon, do not worry as MOYI is offering you the privilege of an exclusive tour of the building with British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye, who led this colossal project which began in 2012. Our next issue (winter 2016) will feature the pictures of this tour.
