Yama Wu OVERTURE HAUTE COUTURE ENSEMBLE

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

2018 marks a phenomenal year for Derrick J. Sellers both in fashion and in the performing arts.

On April 23, 2018, Seller’s clothing brand, DJS LIFESTYLES, will introduce its newest collection, Yama Wu OVERTURE HAUTE COUTURE ENSEMBLE. The 2018/19 season pre-show will officially be released online at www.djslifestyles.com and featured in several international magazines including VGXW, IMIRAGE, ELEGANT, PERIOD, BEAUNU, IMUTE MAGAZINES.

 

YAMA Wu: Overture Haute Couture Ensemble… a one-of-a-kind, electrifying collection by DJS LIFESTYLES Artistic Director Derrick J. Sellers .

 

So, who is YAMA Wu? A fictitious persona… Born in Japan… Raised on the streets of Berlin… Yet, cultivated as an urban global gypsy. Yama Wu lives on the edge… the periphery… the juxtaposition of Form, Function, Freedom, Flamboyancy, and Fashion.  Bipolar in disposition… Eclectic, Eccentric, Emphatic, Elaborate, & Enigmatic with an eye on being culturally Essential -- Think "300" meets "Game of Thrones" or "Hero" meets "Inglorious Basters" -- A nonconformist, he effortlessly intermingles a myriad of genres… the highs & lows military utilitarianism, 80s Punk Rock individualism, Avant-Garde artistry… doused in undertones of Middle Eastern, Asiatic, & Japanese street fashion and fused with tailored European traditionalism.

 

What is YAMA Wu? It is Dramatic, Dynamic, and Didactic, well-Defined and never Derivative that dips and dabs in grays, blacks, blues, greens, golds, and other jewel-tones. Colorful yet Conscious… Charismatic yet Conspicuous… UN-Conventional and nouveau Chic. High-end garments accentuating Sustained emotions.  Bold, Belligerent, & Balanced… incorporating a full Women’s line inside of a Male Collection and featuring fabrics from foreign locales such as Nigeria and Saudi Arabia. It is Androgynous, Animated, Arresting… abbreviated, Yama Wu is Art!

 

On the performing arts front… a new era of entertainment has swept over Dubai with the debut of La Perle. Brought to Dubai by the Al Habtoor Group, La Perle is a live masterpiece, produced by legendary Creative Director Franco Dragone, famed for theatrical spectacles including Celine Dion - A New Day, Le Reve (Las Vegas) and The House of Dancing Water (Macau). La Perle is a breathtaking fusion of immersive artistic performances, imagery and technology.

La Perle touts the highest production credentials and will now add Derrick J. Sellers as the second Artistic Director and the first Afro-American Artistic Director since the show opened in 2016.  He will step into the shoes of Franco Dragone who will remain as the Executive Creator and Producer.

With its one-of-a-kind theater built in the heart of Al Harbor City, La Perle is the region’s first resident show, featuring a cast of 65 artists, each bringing their own unique set of skills to the performance, ranging from acting, acrobats, aquatic and aerial stunts. These often gravity-defying performers will mesmerize as they dive into an on-stage pool or fly through the air, creating a visually captivating experience both below and above stage level. Now open at Al Harbor City, Dubai, it is an unforgettable experience that you do not want to miss out on.
