Event Re-Cap : DEFY Clothing Pop Up Shop @ Gibson Guitar Lounge
I had the pleasure of attending DEFY Clothing's first pop up shop in downtown DC at the Gibson Guitar Lounge. It was a really cool space and people were there in full effect to support Bob & Kevin of DEFY clothing in this inaugural pop up shop effort. I had a chance to speak with Bob about the pop up shop idea and he said that he wanted to offer an environment where people could really get an idea of who and what DEFY DC was about as well as shop the pieces from their brand. Kevin, the other half of the brand, was just as busy moving around the event educating people on the brand and being an all around great host. The event also featured Tami Sawyer of Tamicakes.com and she was serving her version of red velvet cupcakes called "Sweet James Jones". I ate at least 3 of those mini cupcakes and had to pull myself away from the table (LOL) This event was pretty awesome and I was able to catch up with some friends of Fashion Citizen like DaShawn of Newly Renovated and @Vajohn who had a hand in The Trunk Series DC event I attended a while back as well as meet new friends like Tamika Wilkins who runs My Designer Dreams.
I've also got to shout out my brother, Derrick Jackson for being my photographer for the evening.
Make sure you all stay tuned for the next DEFY Clothing event but in the mean time check their site out at www.defydc.com
