The Mission


The Now Trending Art and Fashion Media Hub aims to bring together creative entrepreneurs, artists and influencers to create business opportunities, dynamic new ventures, and strategic partnerships for long-term growth and success. In 2017, we tested our mission and found that we were on target.  Entrepreneurs, artists and celebrities arrived at The Lab Miami from across the country during Art Basel Miami/Miami Art Week.  

The multifaceted experience, which included visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, fashion stylists, authors, and other influencers generated winning results for everyone in the room, and a commitment to return in 2018.   

This year, Now Trending Media has joined with Style Chambers to host two art events during the exciting Art Basel/Miami Art Week. Tickets for both events are available on Eventbrite. Parties interested in sponsorships, partnerships or collaboration for this upcoming event please email info@nowtrending.media .

The Team


Styles Lewis

Styles Lewis brings creativity, innovation and, of course, style to all that she is and does. A veteran of the New York fashion scene, Lewis is a veritable triple threat – style consultant, personal shopper and fashion guru. Bursting on to the scene in the early 2000s, Styles has worked closely with some of the most recognizable names in the industry.

Her career launch coincided with the rise of urban contemporary fashion and streetwear, when Styles not only cast, managed and supplied models, but also provided creative direction on photo shoots for campaigns and look books.  She has produced fashion shows for global brands including Enyce, Everlast, Karl Kani, NTice, Rocca Wear, School of Hard Knocks (SOHK) and Sean John. Lewis’ work with high-end designers and retailers including Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Betsey Johnson, Oscar de la Renta, Chado Ralph Rucci, Tommy Hilfiger and Carolina Herrera inspired her to pursue her interest in producing her own unique experiences and events under the brand iChangestyles.

Building on her vision, Styles Lewis has partnered with marketing and publishing strategist, Tresa Chambers, to create Style Chambers, which produces events that showcase creative talent in fashion, beauty, the arts and entertainment.

As a trendy New Yorker, and a fashion-minded mom, Styles loves introducing what’s new and on trend to her followers. Follow Styles and learn more.  IG: @styleslewis14

Tony Ware

My passion for fashion was ignited in high school when I saw a black man on the cover of GQ magazine. I wanted to be “that guy.” From there, my love for fashion grew. After finishing high school and serving over 25 years in the Air Force, I found myself dabbling in various areas of the fashion world, from print and runway modeling to fashion show production, event management and currently fashion media.

These experiences inspired me to create the Satchcat 7 Network, a fully online social media network and outlet designed to cover events from fashion, to music, film, comedy, art and entertainment. Our first project was the short film “The Glasses Forgot,” which was an official selection of the 2016 G.I. Film Festival. (You can view “the Glasses Forgot” on or YouTube page and Vimeo). Our YouTube channel currently features three seasons of NYFW shows and events, along with our online original series “Window Shopping with Drew Felton,” which I co-produced with fashion influencer Andrew Felton.

As we move forward, our goal is to produce, sponsor, host and partner in the production of entertainment events, films, fashion shows and more.
