The Opening Ceremony for Fashion's Night Out took place at The Beverly Center, and whilst I could be there only ever so briefly, I managed to make quite the appearance.
The Mayor was scheduled to appear on stage with Will.i.am and a bevvy of influential members of the LA Fashion industry, including actress, Angelica Houston, designer, Kevan Hall and Vogue's West Coast Editor, Lisa Love to officially open Fashion's Night Out. As Michael (Fashion Los Angeles Founder) and I swept past the backstage area we recieved a phone call ushering us backstage to join this illustrious group onstage.
It was a pretty great feeling standing shoulder to shoulder with some of LA's fashion greats, the speeches themselves from the Mayor, Will.i.am, Lisa Love and Angelica Houston were motivating and inspiring and definitely opened the evenings festivities with a bang. Unfortunately the speeches were all I was able to stay for, with chaos reaching an all time high over at The Grove we had to rush off, but believe me the party was only just beginning…
