I must say the energy in the room was %100 pure positivity, an eclectic group of business minded
people all there for the same goal to take their business to the next level. Make-Up Artists, Designers,Hair Stylist Wardrobe Stylist, Set Directors, Photographers you name it they were there. I made some great connections myself that evening & every one I'd come in contact with was personable, professional, & very informative.The vendors were welcoming & ready to answer any questions asked about their products. Last but not least a mini fashion show took place showcasing beautiful designs by several of the designers. For anyone in the fashion industry that wants to promote themselves and/or your business this mixer was a must.
One of the people i was fortunate to meet was Lana Rae. Lana Rae is the C.E.O of KIS (Keep It Sexy) model agency which has been in business for more than six years & also provided the models for this event. The birth of KIS began in spring of 2003, since then the KIS models have represented of ninety products & have been booked for countless jobs, & has over ten years of industry experience. Lana makes it a point to hie models that are not only beautiful on the outside, but those who are classy, articulate, & diverse. Don't quote me on this but i do believe she is also the brains behind this mixer & put the whole production together. For more information on the KIS model agency you can visit the website at http://www.keepitsexy.com/. Unfortunately i do not yet have any details on when the next mixer will take place but soon as i do you guys will be the 1st to know.
