LUPE said it best, “HurtMeSoul”!! This was a free, private event myself, Gianni Lee of Babylon Cartel and Local Philadelphia Artist Iye Yinde put together. It was an eclectic mix of classy, cool, creative people seeking a great time with dope art, music, and more. So far, we have had great success with our events and I wanted to thank everyone for their continued support. Kings Really Rule Together!!!
While my journey as a new photographer continues, on October 10th, a friend of mine, Adweena Justice asked me to take pictures at a launch party for her line Urbanea.
A graduate from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, majoring in fashion design, Adweena has been dedicated to her line Urbanea since. Although Urbanea currently offers a variety of women’s clothing and acessories, Justice plans to expand to children’s and men’s ready-to-wear lines in the future. Urbanea’s mission is to build self-esteem through clothing and accessories because “Fashion is not a choice, it’s a lifestyle!!!”
Overall, the event was a success! Lots of people including her friends and family came to support on a very special day.
I’m usually known for producing socially conscious networking events and styling. But, I actually started out as an event planner; the creative support behind the promoters and a liaison to the consumers. Well on Saturday, October 9th, my friends and I went back to our roots and threw a party for just pure fun. Being in a city over-saturated with parties, we were still able to capture a crowd of young, talented, successful men and women. Check out the pics and see for yourself!
