iV Angels Profile: Divania

Today's iV Angel is a new addition to the family: Divania "Vannie" Sykes. When she isn't matching our fly in front of the camera, the Flint, Mich. native is pushing toward a marketing degree at Texas Southern University. But if you're going to hold a conversation with Vannie, know what you're getting into - as the interview below shows, she has some weird tastes.

Birthplace & Current Stomping Grounds:
I was born in Flint, MI &I now live in Houston, TX.

Favorite iV shirt, or iV shirt that best describes your personality, and why? What appeals to you about Identical Variant's clothing and brand?
The shirt that best describes my personality is the black "I'm Dope Get Over It." Because just as it says im DOPE and it makes me feel so "bad @$$." Identical Variant is so different! It's not another clothing label that is this unique to me and the prices are so reasonable.

Lifetime goals?
Right now I attend Texas Southern University, pursuing my BBA in Marketing, which I plan on completing in 2.5-3 years. Then I plan on doing internships here and there, and then going to grad school at Harvard University or The University of Texas to pursue my masters in Business. I will be working in the entertainment industry as a marketing director.

TV show/movie you can't live without?
I can't live with out Law& Order: SVU, it's so amzing. I love that show. I can watch it over and over and over.

What makes you different?
I must be honest I am super weird. I try to do things without people noticing; there have been many times Randall has caught me with the camera doing weird things. I love eating peanut butter and grapes, so yummy, but everyone thinks I'm weird. I used to watch "Trading Spaces" all the time on TLC; nobody likes that, but I used to love it. I would get home from school and go right to watching that ALL day! Simple things make me happy and smile, what makes me different though is that standing on my head and talking to myself makes me super relaxed and happy. I can be supper mean, and I sometimes say things that shouldnt be said, but I am always 100% honest. If you ask me a question I'm going to be real with you!!

With iV, all the models have different personalities. I'm the hard core biker chick and I love it, because I'm the youngest and I act the toughest, but I love all my big "Angel" sisters. I can't explain why I act this way, its just me!! Ms. Perfectly Imperfect.

Detroit CYDI is busy!!

To those that know... They knows I'm not wordsmith so I'll Let the flyers do all the talking here. However, I will say that Detroit CYDI is a super dope hip-hop group from Detroit that we sponsor and support at iV.. Hail to Good Music.



What up, peoples! Smack here to present to y'll the new collabo shirt between IV and

Just in time for the website's launch party this Saturday (Feb. 20th), the shirt (designed by this guy) represents some of what WHUTUPDOE is all about - cats with "BARS!" and cats who go a "rappity rappin'" © Buff1. The shirt is now on sale in the online store but you can also head to the event itself and purchase your very own. Click on the flyer below to head to the Facebook event page and RSVP.

It's sure to be a dope show, so come out, here some dope music, and buy some dope shirts at the same time. I'm pretty sure that's apart of the American dream. Somewhere in there. Probably in the fine print.

- Smack!

iV Angels Profile: Bionca

To help rejuvenate Identical Variant's Internet presence and familiarize readers with our brand, we will be posting profiles of the company's models, owners, and team members. What you'll notice is that we're all ambitious, we all respect each other, and we all march to the beat of our own drum. If those things describe you, stay tuned to Identical Variant through our web site, our Facebook group, and our clothing! Also, submit your own profile with the answers to these questions and you may be featured on the iV Blog!

The first iV Angel you'll learn about is Bionca. Don't let the long legs, heels and her Hello Kitty allegiance let you get the wrong idea. With her obsession for sports and her appreciation for a certain film about Harlem drug dealers from the 80s, she's prone to get along with the fellas just as much. Read below for more.

Birthplace & Current Stomping Grounds:
Born and raised in Flint Michigan. Now living and going to school in Houston, TX at Texas Southern University

Favorite iV shirt, or iV shirt that best describes your personality, and why? What appeals to you about Identical Variant's clothing and brand?
Favorite shirt would be "I Come in Piece." Dont let the sweet innocent face fool u... im a G! I'll come peacefully and leave victorious! Identical Variant products are unique. Even the name is something that no one would ever think of.

Lifetime goals?
I am going to school for marketing. I plan to go into sports marketing. I prefer football. Eventually, I'll open my own marketing/advertising firm.

TV show/movie you can't live without?
I can't live without "Paid in Full!" Next to "Love and Basketball," it is the best movie ever. Paid In Full is the realest movie ever, it's on that G shit. And Sanaa Lathan is one of my favorite actresses. I always wanted a boyfriend that lived next door so we could sneak in each others' windows.

What makes you different?
Welllllll.... I have freckles! I'm extremely goofy because my mom is still goofy at her old age;we always goof around and make jokes. I love fried okra! A lot!

Plus, I'm always watching ESPN. A lot of girls just cant stand it, but I can watch it all day. I love sports because I grew up on them. I have a lot of brothers and cousins, so I was always at a sporting event. I like football the most because its a contact sport, and I like seeing people get their asses whupped [laughs].

I am a Hello Kitty fanatic, too. I think I will love Hello Kitty till the day i die!
