Abuka Onuegbu Jonathan, aka Bigg Joo, is a model based in Austria who is now getting international recognition. He says he grew up watching shows like America’s Next Top Model. Shows like that made him wonder whether he would be a perfect fit for modeling. Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to pursue a career in modeling. He practiced the walk and how to carry himself. But he says he never thought someone of his body type could be a model.

However, his doubts did not stop him from pursuing his goals. He went ahead and chased his dreams. Now, modeling takes him around the world. Even though he is away from his family and friends most of the time, Bigg Joo loves his job. He would not change it for the world.

When you are passionate about it, then you forget about the hectic part said, Bigg Joo. Modeling has changed the way he views life. Traveling, learning about different cultures, and meeting new people has changed him. It had broadened his mind and given him an insight. He also shared that it has helped him to read people better.

When he learned about modeling Bigg Joo did not think he was the right size for modeling. But over the years, he honed his skill – he practiced the walk, posing, and his style. Now he has tried bridal, athletic wear, and lingerie shoots. He has also worked for popular brands like  @menwithclass, @bestsecret, @Hannamartin.

SPOTLIGHT: Sweet vinyl by DREAMOUR

What happens when two immensely talented visionaries come together to create elegance and ingenuity in a sculptural glass fragranced candle? Dreamour. That is the long and short version of how Dreamour was created. Founded by Karissa Rowe and Neal Klotsman in late September 2022, Dreamour was founded with the goal of creating a luxury fragrance brand that operates at the intersection of functional art in the candle market space.

Rowe, a Parsons School of Design graduate, set out to fill the niche of integrating design in the candle marketplace. Unlike most candle vessels that are mass-produced, Dreamour’s founders desired to prioritize the artisanal craftsmanship of glass in their production processes of the sculptural glass designs. This resulted in a long timeline of sourcing the globe for talented glass artisans who could transform a sketch into a functional and sophisticated candle vessel. Each and every candle vessel is hand-blown, inherently resulting in a one-of-a-kind product and unique experience for the consumer. These functional fragrant candles also act as a piece of décor due to its sculptural and alluring appearance.

Sweet Vinyl, Dreamour’s first candle scent, fills the room with musky & leathery notes combined with earthy notes of vetiver and cypriol, topped with a citrus touch of bergamot and mandarin. The founders worked with master perfumers in Grasse, France, to create a scent that invoked notes of memorable moments, emphasizing high quality ingredients in the fragrances in a soy wax blend. This resulted in candles that consist of clean ingredients, a vegan formula, and is entirely cruelty-free.

It is the personification of the glass blowers’ spirit, the heart of Grasse imprisoned in a bottle, and the narrative of two visionaries that sets Dreamour at the top of the candle market pedestal. Dreamour embodies the sophistication and savior-faire French perfumery as a luxury brand, while being a NYC based brand. Dreamour is currently stocked at Patron of the New in New York, along with other major designer luxury known brands. Rowe and Klotsman are currently expanding their production lines and will drop new fragrances and designs in early 2023. Don’t expect anything ordinary with Dreamour, as they will continue to bring a unique perspective to the marketplace of home fragrances.
