StyleUMentary is a series of mini style documentaries featuring fashion plates within the African American community who have been trailblazers in Style, Beauty and Art!

First up is one of Chicago’s fashion pioneers, Dave Jeff of PHLI World Wide, take a glimpse into the Life & Style of PHLI as Dave takes us on a journey from his days as a teen at Kenwood Academy to the history of Harper’s Court and the birth of ‘I Love Hyde Park.’ Definitely a storyteller within his own right, Dave opened up and introduced Row A Seat 1 to his definition of ‘PHLI as I wanna be.’

Take a seat and as Dave would say ‘do your homework first’ and experience how ‘PHLI’ he is…
