The Skybar at Mondrian is definitely on to something great with its poolside series, the Full Moon Bazaar Trunk Show.
Last night marked the event’s third installment, this time really pulling in the celebration of the full moon with a tarot card reader and jewelry designers showing off items featuring black pearls, rose gold richness and indigenous handbags with a truly cosmic background.
The handbags, by way of northern Colombia, were put on display by Mochila Bag Addixion’s owner Andrea Gomez. She explained that Wayuu men and women from La Guajira make the bags with a process where the men weave the shoulder straps and the women weave the bag itself. The practice is thousands of years old and comes from the tribe celebrating and preserving its culture.
In addition, each bag was aesthetically pleasing, with bright, inviting colors. I was immediately drawn to the hues, the story behind each piece and how they fit in with the spirit of the Full Moon festival theme. Just like everyone at the event, each handbag was an original.
Project Ethos — an outlet for emerging fashion, music, art and lifestyle brands known for its events — has created a night for those looking to connect with other business professionals.
Kicking off its first night on June 18 at Rush Street restaurant in Culver City, adding to the evening, lively music was expertly spun by DJ Aaron Colbert and guests were treated to giveaways. Included in the items were B&E Soap and Scrubs, Kristen Dorsey Designs, Rollasole, Pavan Liqueur and more in brightly colored totes from Mochila Bag Addixion.
Project Ethos held their first event in 2005 at the historic El Rey Theater in Los Angeles and was open to both the public and industry individuals. Over the years, the company has continued to create more ways to connect professionals and has held more than 50 large-scale productions from Hollywood to San Diego, San Francisco, Portland and Arizona. From its connections, designers have gone on to be in stores and on the Bravo TV show Project Runway, while bands have gone on to the Grammys and hundreds of paintings have been purchased. With its new networking series, they hope to continue their success in creating more opportunity for emerging artists.
