The Fashion Designers Expo, co-founded by its CEO, Karine Melissa, and Clinton K. Powell, which departed from Florida, upon which hopes, and dreams of national exposure abounded, much like an airliner with food or much-needed nutrition, on a humanitarian mission, descended and landed June 19-20th, 2015, upon a fashion hungry Los Angeles, oozing with the spirit to consume this spiritually laden payload incarnate –fashion design catalyst capable of empowering and enriching dreams into fruition!
On the eve of this much-anticipated affair, Erik Rosete, CEO and president of Art Hearts Fashion, which has graced the likes of Mercedes-Benz and The LA Fashion Week, a famous designer in his own right, in conjunction with his potent public relations machine, The Whitaker Sisters , set this much-anticipated affair off with a bang, quickening the pulse of the festivities.
In collaboration with FDE’s own business executive director, De’ Hollie Wood and her crew, Art Hearts Fashion facilitated a party, at The W Hollywood Hotel, which was highlighted by a World Premiere of the first time ever, glimpse of famed and reclusive award-winning Filipino designer, Furne One, presented by former Armani model, and Gaglioti, Productions Corps creator, executive producer and host at “Fashion News Live “, Rocco Leo Gaglioti, called “Inside Amato”.
Models, upstart designers, singers, actors, journalists and VIP guests, not only watched, as if glued to a rare incursion into the, “unscripted” real life runway behind the scenes, and as Gaglioti said, view of One’s design magistry, but also rocked the real life drama on the redcarpet, while networking, eating great food and imbibing great liquids. Giving rise to new contacts and heightening the temperature of this gala event tomorrow at The Marriott Hotel’s cavalcade of designers and celebrities from across the nation, The W Hollywood’s party effectively juxtaposed the dynamics of mirth but the purpose and the “REAL” reason for this season was The Fashion Designer Expo glistening above the horizon the next day, where stars were about to be born, on June 20, 2015 at JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE at the 900 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015.
