I absolutely loved the intimate, invite only event that I attended last week! EM & Co Presents 'UP NEXT: L.A. DESIGNERS: BRAVE NEW WORLD' was great! The event was a fashion installation featuring collections from designer Angela Dean and EM Reconstruct (upcycled army gear reconstructed by Krys & Jack and EM). DJ Gabriel Diggs set the mood for the evening. Event Sponsors & Partners included Agenda Magazine, HONEST Beverages, Cinema Makeup School, Habibi Bath & Body.
About Angela Dean/Deanzign:
With critically-acclaimed designs, celebrity designer, Angela Dean, has a loyal following of Hollywood's top celebrities, and her fashion design powerhouse has evolved into one of the hottest 'best-kept fashion secrets' in the music and entertainment industry. Founded in the 80s, Deanzign's statement-making creations made the wearer look and feel like a star. Angela Dean's gowns have been worn by Paris Hilton, Oprah Winfrey, Katy Perry, and Queen Latifah, to name just a few. Angela was asked to design for Hollywood's eight leading ladies, Halle Berry, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Vivica A. Fox, Michael Michelle, Elise Neal, Lorretta Devine, and Regina King, featured on the Collector's Edition of the 30th Anniversary Essence cover, the highest-selling issue in the history of Essence magazine. Angela's beautiful, red silk taffeta ball gown in the 2007 fall collection, was featured in Paris Hilton's perfume ad campaign "Can Can." For more information, please visit: Deanzign.
About EM Reconstruct:
EM Reconstruct represents the latest trend in eco-conscious fashion: Up-cycling of garments. Combining edgy trend-setting style with eco-friendly practices, existing garments are re-fashioned and modified, sometimes beyond recognition, into new garments. Each garment is individually created and is generally unique; no two are alike. The EM Reconstruct line, first introduced in 2005, releases a number of mini-collections per year, sometimes grouped around a theme, exclusively available at EM & Co. The March 2010 mini-collection is a collaboration from designers Krys-N-Jack and Eveline Morel. More information on EM Reconstruct is available at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
