A Peek at Project Ethos

I spent a very enjoyable Saturday night with Sarah and our better halves (in addition to hundreds of well-heeled attendees) at Avalon in Hollywood for the Project Ethos Carpe Diem event, which featured musical performances, art, and eight runway shows as part of L.A. Fashion Week. After checking in, we combed the large venue and admired the stylish crowd before securing our optimal positions near the end of the runway. This is the part where Sarah and I both looked down at our less than practical 5" heels and scanned the nearby area for seats without much luck. The Robotanists (with their chic platinum blond Sharin Foo look-alike lead singer) started off the night with a few upbeat pop-rock tracks from their new album "Plans In Progress", and then the shows began. Highlights of the night for me included: a dance performance by a chic black-clad ballerina in the Melissa Velia show, half eye masks and lively bolts of crimson in the Reneta J show, a belted pink lace mini dress and side fishtail in the Ermelinda Manos show, and lust worthy bondage boot sandals and a Batman-eque corset in the red, black, and white-themed Seth Aaron Henderson (winner of Project Runway Season 7) finale show. Expect a video (and perhaps more photos) from Project Ethos to come soon...
