One of those we saw in town was the one and only Toyin Lawani of the Tiannah Styling & Elegante Couture fame, who had come in from the UK, with her UK based publicist and a model from the Queen's land UK in tow to showcase at the 3 days event and an intern from New York, who had also flown in.
We had both landed a day to the event proper, so we had to hit the ground running. The 15 hours flight for us, first to Houston for 12 hours and then from Houston to LA another 3 hours did not dampen our spirit. So we quickly made preparations to attend the welcome party for all, which the event organizers had tagged 'welcome mixer'.
Getting unpacked at our hotel at the Staple Center Inn, we quickly had a change of clothes and we were off to the venue of the mixer, the Standard Hotel, which was quite a distance away. Though we got to the cocktail party a bit late, we still had great fun mixing & chatting, with other designers, a few guests, some models, a few of the organising team etc.
We took a few pictures for our readers delight. Check 'em out!!!! All pictures were taken by maestro's media.
