Philly Wine Mixer: A night of Art, Music, and Fashion

Philly Wine Mixer 2-2-2014

Philadelphia is a city that is full of talented artists, fashion designers, and musicians.  For one night, under one roof, the Philadelphia Wine Mixer showcases some of Philly’s best to present their art, perform, and for designers/ stylists to showcase their lines.  This popular event initially began in April 2010, “to create a platform where the talent in the city could commence and showcase through the arts”, and since then it has grown to tremendous proportions.  I have been in the past and it is truly a night to remember and the next mixer will take place on Friday, February 7, 2014, from 7-11pm, at the African American Museum of Art located in Center City, Philadelphia.

At this upcoming event, there will be plenty of talent to be exposed to under one roof.  Photographer Ricky Codio will be showing his photography, Mel Alston Jr. and Sap Sounds will be performing for the crowd, and there will be a fashion presentation with limited VIP seating as well.  Mah Jing Wong, Closet by Cristobal, and the Marquette Collection are amongst some of the fashion collections that will be showing their lines on the runway.  Syreeta Martin, blogger of Sincerely Syreeta, will be hosting the fashion portion of this event!

There will be plenty of art, fashion, and music to partake of as well as unlimited wine and hors d’ouvres for guests who purchase the open wine bar or VIP admission tickets.  Attendees will also have an opportunity to mingle amongst the vendors and the lead vendor of the night is Duke & Winston.  An awards segment will also take place during the evening, where honorees Curran Swint- stylist and creator of the brand “Kings Rule Together”, Iris Bonner- artist of “These Pink Lips”, and John Barber- manager and music producer, will be receiving the official “Live In the Moment award”, from the creator of the Philly Wine Mixer and of LITM Marketing, Tyrone Dixon.
