On October 6th, I attended a fashion event for Angela Wang's debut collection with two of my friends. The event was called "The X Party," named after her brand, "X". I can honestly say that the clothes were beautiful, the venue was very trendy, and the designer was genuinely friendly!
In this blog post I am going to give a run-down of what I did at the event and share what I enjoyed most!
Hair and Makeup
At the fashion event, there was a table where you could get your hair and makeup done. My friend Olivia was one of the makeup artists working the event, so I started off by getting my hair and makeup done.
Trying on the Clothes
One of my favorite parts of this event was that we were able to try on the clothes from Angela's new line. There was a giant room filled with clothes, shoes, and purses! Angela had stylists working who would help pick out outfits for the guests.
Modeling the Clothes
By far the coolest part of this entire event was that Angela had us model some of her pieces! There was a white backdrop we used while a professional photographer took photos of us. Another amazing part of this experience was how nice everyone was. While I was being photographed, girls I'd met for the first time that night were hyping me up by telling me I looked great. The atmosphere at this fashion event was very positive.
Here is a picture of me & my friends in the outfits we wore for the shoot. I'm wearing a simple black dress with cutouts on the shoulders (one of Angela's designs).
Models on Angela's Official Website?!?!
Yep, you're reading that right! The photos taken by the photographer were added to Angela's official clothing site! So I guess you could say we're models now ;)
10/10 Would Go Again!
I can honestly say that attending "The X Party" fashion event was one of the best experiences I've had since moving to Chicago. My hair and makeup was done for free, I tried on and modeled some of the clothes, I was able to talk with the designer, and I ended up being featured as a model on Angela's website! I'm so thankful I was able to attend this event and experience something I never thought I'd be able to!
