Today is a big day! Not only am I sharing with you a post of my time at the Havana Nights Summer Show hosted by Charlotte Seen (@charlotteseen on IG) today, but I also just posted a new vlog on my YouTube channel! It is a lot shorter than the Seattle video; you may be happy to hear!
I'm cannot tell you how excited I am to finally be creating videos! I have been talking about YouTube for a while and now I am finally doing it! I am still learning it, so bear with me! It also covers this summer show, so if you are not interested in reading, you can always go watch it instead!
Summer Show and Unboxing!
Arguably one of the most fun parts of the show was the dancing! There was so much dancing! Early on people seemed a little hesitant to hit the floor, as the night went on the dance floor became more and more populated! In fact, at one point the singer, Cristine, taught everyone how to do the meregue! She even had yours truely out there with both of my left feet in all of their akward glory! xD
Both were very different in style but full of life, color, and stories. I got to speak to both artists a little at the show. Both Melissa and Keyon are very interesting. Melissa wears many different hats in addition to artist, including designer! And Keyon told me a little about his journey as an artist and what drives him. I've actually been in touch with him since and we are hoping to get together soon so I can share more of his story with you!
There was a short runway show, with only two designers. Adline Griffin and Luna Sewell. There was both women and menswear that showcased on the runway, and all of it was centered around the Havana themed evening. For the women, there were vintage dresses, a lot of prints, off the shoulder designs, head scarves, and a lot of color! For the men there were also a lot of prints and color, tailored suits, button downs, and fedoras.
Even a few kiddos hit the runway, looking cute as can be! I always enjoy watching the kids walk to the runway because you really never know what they will do! Will you get a sassy four year old that sashays down the runway? Or one that stops like a dear in headlights? One of the younger ones walked all the way down the runway and then just kept walking into the crowd! It is never a dull moment, that is for sure!
Thanks so much for reading and I will see you on Friday! =D
