HEART OF COOL JOINS WECLIQ FOR DUAL NYFW LAUNCH
On Wednesday, September 16, 2015 Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx‘s personal stylist TASHA BOUÉ and industry veteran CRISTEN MILLS teamed with the popular new social media app company weCliq, founded by Brown & Harvard University graduates ROB GILLETT , MARC HOWLAND and ADAM DEMUYAKOR to host the official launch of both brands during New York Fashion Week at an exclusive event in Soho at the swanky Penthouse Six at 177 Prince Street.
Fashion and entertainment stylists, tech executives, models and media filled the florescent penthouse and rooftop and were greeted with their choice of a glass of champagne provided by Le Medaillon or a chilled Lion Beer. Hor d’oeuvres freshly made by Miss Dorsey Kitchen and pizza from Artichoke Pizza were served as guests mingled and danced to tunes played by an impressive lineup of international deejays, including DJ Peter, DJ Young Jones, and DJ Just Dizle. To add on to the already exciting night guests stayed entertained by displayed artwork, body painted models, and a photo booth for social media located in the branded weCliq lounge.
Industry tastemakers showed their support by attending the launch event, and guests included singer Estelle, model Elizabeth Pipko, Arise 360 TV host Shannon Lanier, singer Gary Michael Houston (nephew of the late legend Whitney Houston), stylist Keino Benjamin, publicist BJ Coleman, DJ Young Jones, DJ Just Dizle, celebrity make-up artist Julia Jovone, model Rey Lopez, and professional skateboarder Jordan Trahan.
