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.
