I didn’t make it this year to the big apple to celebrate NYFW (bummer) but if I did you can bet my feet would be in dire need of relief. I would absolutely rock my favorite stilettos and pumps etc, therefore, I need a subtle ballet flat to store in my carry-all or clutch depending on the event. Tadaa!!! BALLASOX! Check ‘em out only $60 a pair! Yahoo!!

This evening, Thursday, August 30th, Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles (AFWLA) will host “Africa Is Rising”, a networking social highlighting Africa’s fashion and textile industries, at The Standard Hotel (550 S Flower Street) from 6-10pm. Tina Tangalakis of Della LA is our special guest, and proceeds from all ticket sales will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation.
Unfortunately, I already have plans for this evening but if I didn’t I would be there! Hope you all get to enjoy the event!

Last year I had a blast and will return again tonight to see the emerging talent, art, music and fashion all fused together creating a must-attend event.
“Tonight Project Ethos will unveil a fresh take on bringing exposure to participants and is set to launch the concept at their first Spring event. Partnering with powerhouse event producers Jin&Quinn who have composed events for The Black Eyed Peas, Blackberry, Ducati and more, this event will be an experience like no other for attendees.”
You can still attend while tickets are available and be the first to get a first look at the future of fashion, music and art. All mediums will debut in one room centralizing the excitement with a live musical performance from LA based Hyper Crush and live art installations from LabArt Gallery’s Sand-One, Jules Muck, and CYRCLE. The runway show will feature a dynamic group of designers including Danielle Pettee (Danielle the Dress Maker), Ermelinda Manos, Wen Guo (Boditecture), Melissa Velia (Melissa Velia), Janean Johnson (JaJo Couture), Regina Marie Woods (G. Marie), Edita Bandaryan (Edita Collection), Luis Mendoza & Yesica Medina (LUICA), Catherine Furio (Furio Apparel) and Johana Hernandez (GLAUDI by Johana Hernandez).
The diverse talent and action will all be captured on camera by ProjectEthos.tv for viewers worldwide.
“After holding events in cities throughout the west coast, we realized that our participants need more exposure than to what’s in their own back yard. ProjectEthos.tv is the answer.” Jason Peskin – Founder and C.E.O.
Following the Ethos fashion show will certainly be an experience in itself with hosts Jin&Quinn at the helm. The “event within an event” will feature a live performance from The Seems, DJs Ditgital and Taryn Manning, and a fashion show.
