I wasn't familiar with Velvet Angels, but found out they launched 2 years ago, and are available online at shopbop, revolveclothing, bluefly and at Velvet Angels. Velvet Angels is also available locally at Intermix and LF in Soho. Their pumps, booties and platforms sport some serious high heels (which I need to make me taller!). I found out they are just beginning to carry size 5, which is nice to hear, since size 5 is not easy to come by!
Ardistia and Miguelina
It was great to see Ardistia, who recently won the "Are You Runway Ready"fashion contest by social club Women's Mafia and was a finalist last month in Gen Art's Plastics Make it PossibleSM design competition. Congratulations Ardistia! I also met designer Miguelina, who makes fabulous, flattering dresses.
I picked up a few samples from Juara, which is inspired by Indonesian botanicals. I absolutely love the scent of the candlenut body creme, and it moisturizers really well. I have yet to try the rice facial cleanser and sweet black tea & rice facial moisturizer.
I also got a few samples of Davines LOVE shampoo (with Indian fig extract for dry & frizzy hair) and conditioner (with borage oil for harsh & frizzy hair) and their newest collection, MELU, with spinach extract for long or damaged hair.
Guests also enjoyed complimentary hair styling and drinks.
