Born and raised in the County of Wade, Danielle Simone has always had a passion for art. She studied at the prestigious Indiana University, where she received a Bachelor's of Fine Art (Honors, obviously!) - focusing on Modern Art, later to realize she knew very little about the Contemporary art world. Two years later, she graduated from Sotheby's Institute in London (Merit, Of Course!) with an MA in Contemporary Art. Mission accomplished!
After reading endless critiques by other critics, Danielle decided it was her time to share her own opinion and one day started CultureHeARTs, where she and her classmates garnered their personal opinions about art they saw all around the world. The opinions that Danielle offers readers of Ms.Erinsita, are that of her own. Her hopes? For everyone to generate their own voice, however understand the art before they are to judge. As the Duchampian theory goes: What You See is What You Get - but is that valid in today's day and age? Maybe not….However, what is Duchampian, and is valid is: Art is Art Because the Artist Says So.
We will always have our opinions about whatever art may be that we come across, and Danielle is here to challenge you, raise awareness, and bring your attention to aspects you may have never considered before.
Christian Roth et Eric Domege
Contributes: Anything Aesthetic, From Miami to Monaco
With a 30 year romantic and professional relationship under their belts, Christian Roth and Eric Domege are the dynamic duo who created eyewear featuring innovative silhouettes, techniques and colorations that have placed them on the forefront of fashion.
Currently residing between Miami and Monaco, here is a bit about these creative genius': Christian, born in Germany, and Eric from France, met in New York City in 1983, where they were working in optical, fashion photography and marketing, respectively. In 1984 they founded Optical Affairs and were quickly hailed by the fashion community as fresh talents that would go on to change the course of luxury eyewear. As one of the world’s leading optical designers, Christian Roth went on to set trends in the market, not follow them. The pair’s view was that eyewear should make its own statement as a piece of fashion, stemming from a myriad of historical and cultural influences. In 1990, Roth was celebrated for his vision and was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).His work in propelling the eyewear market forward, specifically in his innovative use of titanium and handmade acetate, set the brand apart. The induction was especially important to the eyewear industry overall, as this was the first time an eyewear designer had ever been awarded into this esteemed circle of designers.
In 1998, Christian and Eric formed a partnership with the Charmant Group to produce and distribute Christian Roth eyewear worldwide. The Japanese manufacturer has a worldwide reputation for technical expertise and knowledge, especially in the use of titanium. The new millennium saw Christian Roth paving the path to fame within design circles. In 2002 the pair was honored by the art world with the inclusion of their designs from the 1980’s and 1990’s in the “Taking Eyeglasses Seriously” exhibition at the Triennale di Milano. From 2000 to 2004, Christian and Eric joined forces with Michael Kors on his eyewear collections. The duo also teamed up with Karl Lagerfeld on his fashion eyewear line from 2007 to 2011.In 2010, Christian Roth ended its partnership with Charmant, and the following year granted Korean-based eyewear firm BCD Korea, Co. Ltd (Beyond Cliché Design) the license to produce and distribute Christian Roth eyewear throughout Asia.
In 2012 Christian Roth and Eric Domege founded the firm Optical Affairs Company and launched their crisp and modern e-commerce destination christian-roth.com during New York’s Fall/Winter 2013 Fashion Week. The Christian Roth name has become synonymous with luxury eyewear and iconic design. The frames are worn on such tastemakers as Kate Moss, Rihanna, Daphne Guinness and Lenny Kravitz and appear consistently in top international fashion publications.

Michael H. Cohen
It’s hard to forget Michael Cohen on the Miami scene and nor do we want to. The former Special Correspondent for People Magazine and Miami Editor for In Touch Weekly, he also reported about celebrity happenings for Deco Drive and CNN Headline News.
After the much hated (except for him, the fan fave) reality show “Miami Social’ on Bravo was cancelled and his namesake askmichaelcohen.com went south, Cohen dipped out from the scene.
Now, living in New York City, he’s consulting for .com’s and signed with a literary agent that’s poached one of his Huffington Post columns for a book. “Everyone falls off a horse,” says Cohen. “You just gotta get back on it and ride the bitch better and harder.”
His new column “Dispatches from New York City (not Brooklyn)," will run monthly.
