It was all a freaking dream. Two months ago when I began this journey I never thought I’d be here. I am so hungry for this. Seeing people’s greatness being pulled out and exposing the depth of their best qualities is my thing. I was built for this; this networking thing. Securing my spot and making you respect my lane. I will produce and give you what you want. I will give us what we’re missing; A common ground. A playground for you, and a show for those ready to “execute their artistry.” On Saturday, December 2nd, that’s exactly what happened.
20Sumn combined forces with the brand “Eye Choose” to bring you the “Eye Choose 20Sumn Experience.” The night began with a whole lot of praying as we walked into Roger Brown to begin setting up. That’s the only way we got through the night. With fifteen vendors, over 5 artist, and a house full of creatives, we created a whole lot of synergy. Every artist that came through made sure to give us a performance. The evening began with Dawn Terrell, a Virginia based creative that is calm in her demeanor. Dawn always comes with heart and she will execute every time. Her performance was followed by Dahlia who featured Lil AK on one of her singles. Dahlia captured the audience with her mystic energy and graced the crowd with her beautiful voice as expected. As the night moved forward, we had a featured clothing line; Naïve Dreamers. The aesthetic of this brand is clean and appealing to just about anyone. Last minute, there was a guest appearance by the beautiful Jasmine Farrow who shut it completely down. After she did her thing, “Da Hunt Culture” came through and showed us a few pieces from their collection that came with dope prints. After our last clothing line, Shantel Sole came and gave it her all. Her performance was like that and you can tell she comes to eat with every opportunity. Lastly, our boy Ellae came through with the A1 performance (as usual) and kept the energy consistent.
From every performer, vendor, clothing line, model, and anyone who was a part of this huge night, thank you! Ebony Love (@EyeChoose) and I are more than happy with the turnout of this event and we hope to serve alongside of you all in the future. All of your dedication allowed us to give a portion of all proceeds to B.E.I.N.G. You. Again, thank you! Please check out our directory of the event and a link to all photos. Mad love and respect to all of your brands. Bless up!
