(HOLLYWOOD PRESS CORPS) — Hollywood, Ca — NOV 16TH, 2019 — An amazing gathering of international fashion experts occured in Hollywood this past Saturday. The Lumiere International Fashion event was held at the Industry Loft in Hollywood. Designers, performers and charity all merged for a one night exclusive fashion event.

One of the coolest things that I’ve seen at a fashion event is the use of a live piano player. Cody Gilette played a grand piano and it sounded amazing. Cody is a pianist, a music director, and a composer since he was a boy. Cody is a modern day composer who loves opera. Cody has composed several operas and musicals. Most recently, he completed a musical based on Albert Camus’ “Caligula”.
To kick the runway show off, Saya Fujihara did a modern dance that was really fun to watch. Saya began her dance studies in Kyoto when she was four years old. Her main study is contemporary dance, jazz and ballet. I would call her dance piece a sort of interpretive dance. She seemed to translate the excitement of the evening into dance piece.

There were several designers whose designs graced the runway. Of course, Parris Harris was backstage coordinator.  The show had a stylish vibe. Fashion designer Ximena Valero is a visionary in the fashion world since she was a kid in Mexico. Ximena Valero Corporation is an international brand that produces, distributes and sells women’s designer clothing around the world. The designs that they had on the runway were unique. The crowd really seemed to like the designs.

Jennifer Felts is from Dallas. Her love of Japanese culture can be seen in the logo for her brand. Literally it says – Tokyo Twiggy. This was a nickname she got in high school because she was so skinny and she loved Japanese culture. Jenn is known for making her own fabrics and designs.
K. Lee Marie was in attendance and took her time posing for photos on the red carpet. She was really enjoying the event. Her latest song came out this month called “Let Go”. IG @k.lee.marie.music

The evening was so much fun. People arrived early and the runway was packed with enthusiastic celebrities who came to see the latest fashions. The after party kicked off after the runway and it was a great chance to met new people.
The Hollywood Press Corps looks forward to the next International fashion event!

National Champion Aidas Reklys is a Man of Many Talents

Figure skating national champion, coach and entrepreneur Aidas Reklys is a man of many talents. He’s the founder of Skate Universal and created this company as skating is his passion and he wants to share it with the world. By sharing his devotion and knowledge of the sport, he hopes to improve skaters of every level in their performance, technique, understanding and love of the sport.

Originally from Lithuania, Reklys was a coach in the Chicago area for about 8 years. Now he’s in Southern California and has a thriving coaching practice here. Being a world competitor and professional coach has allowed him opportunities to travel around the world. He’s had the change to learn and share many different training techniques at seminars, camps and shows. As a personal trainer and skater, he has the unique ability to incorporate the two disciplines for the optimal benefit of the skater.

“I enjoy coaching because I love seeing young athletes progression and fighting for personal goals. It’s not only about progressing in the sport, but also the main thing of this process is that these people I train learn discipline. That is so important to succeed in sports as they need that discipline to propel themselves forward and get strong physically and mentally and to know to keep trying even if they fail,” said Reklys.

In addition to being the founder of Skate Universal, he’s also the inventor and creator of the Powertwist, for all levels of skaters, which teaches them correct positioning during jumps, landing positions and spins while also strengthening the shoulders, arms, abdominals and core muscles. This is such a powerful and helpful tool, that it even helps tennis players build explosive power and upper body control.

And if that isn’t enough, Reklys also organizes ice-related events. He brings the ice and performers for any occasion like business meetings, birthdays and weddings.
