LA Fashion Week’s Opening Night Gala

I had the pleasure of attending the LA Fashion Week opening night event thanks to the lovely Laura Sharpe, Founder and CEO of Artists for Trauma (AFT). This event was held at the historic Hollywood Athletic Club right on Sunset Boulevard. I’ve been collaborating with Laura on projects, so it was nice to have a night out and take a break or in my case, eat too many tasty treats from Sugah Rush Bar and drink too many sugary drinks. Bad Vida! I will say that I really enjoyed the Bai drinks especially the Bolivian black cherry flavor and the Dassai sake was strong but smooth. Hey, at least I enjoyed myself!
