The event was at the Sofitel Hotel in one of their very glamorous ballrooms, clad with gorgeous pink rose centerpieces. This was one very special affair. It is not commonplace for a designer to provide a 4-course dinner, champagne and wine for their guests. A nice cheese and prosciutto square was our appetizer, and then came the quinoa salad, and the amazing chicken with a squash puree rounded out the 4-course dinner, and lets not forget desert, which was equally scrumptious. The fashion show was by far on of the best as well, so for me this was a great, exciting evening!
Fashion designer Pia Gladys Perey unveiled her 2016 Spring/Summer line for the invite-only gala. Guests included celebrities, top stylists, fashion bloggers, and an array of tastemakers. The Montmartre Fashion Group, Style Bee, The Luxe Resort, Diama Sparkle, Loris Flowers, and WJG Asia sponsored the event. Perey’s inspiration for the 2016 Spring/Summer line came from concept of “defying gravity,” with a spectacular display of ethereal gowns in stunning white, glittery gold and softly lite pink.
Some of the attendees were: Fely Irvine (The Voice, Australia), Lindsay McCormick (Sports Broadcaster), Erin Coscarelli (NFL HQ), Mabelynn Capeluj (Miss California USA 2013), Daphne Wayans (Hollywood Exes), Porscha Coleman (The Parkers), Christina Cha (Survivor), Daniel Nguyen (The Millers), Jackie Moore (Atlantic Rim), Niki Koss (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), Mark & Matt Harris (Storage Wars), Yenitza Munoz (The Neighbors), Kristine Elezaj (Recording Artist), Marisa Lauren (Superhero Movie), Vinicius Machado (True Detective) and Nikki Martin (“Food Network Star”).

Every attendee was made to feel very special, and I am sure the consensus in the room was how great this event was. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night in Los Angeles!
