Next week, Thursday July 12th, a really cool event called VERVEnyc happening at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. The event, which is geared towards supporting up and coming young talent in the art/design/entertainment industries, will feature 3 really amazing bands (my personal favorite is Liam and Me, a recently signed band from Philly) and 8 incredible new designers from The Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons School of Design, including one who recently designed the clothing for some of Beyonce's backup dancers in her new video "Freakum Dress" and another who was part of a team who sewed the entire tour wardrobe for Panic! At The Disco last year. Zulema Griffin, a contestant from Project Runway season 2 will be the guest designer of the evening.
The night begins at 8pm and goes until 12am. There will be music, bars for those 21+, an hour long fashion show with some really amazing work, press, special guests and industry professionals. A great opportunity for networking, experiencing an event with the true spirit of New York, or just enjoying yourself for a unique evening of entertainment! (Hot girls modeling, cute guys who can sing, a room full of cool New Yorkers - what more could you ask for?)
As if that isn't enough, for those of you aspiring to be models or actors, there will be a couple castings at the event, including one for the new faces of Laser Cosmetica - the premeir medical spa in New York and Philidelphia which runs advertisements in magazines nationally and newspapers are the NY area. The evening is also going to be documented for a spot on MTVU's "My Summer Break".
