DeeJay Neekola skyrockets her first album – “Playtime” – at District

30 Jan

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Top charted and internationally known DeeJay Neekola celebrated her first album “Playtime” launch  at District in Adams Morgan. Highly anticipated album, and of course, the “girl from its cover” herself, attracted as many people as could fit into the club. It was hot, noisy and fun, and so many DC’s best paid a visit to show the support to everybody’s favorite DJ! Her friend and partner Rex Riot co-spinned that night and together they rocked the club. Neekola was wearing hot dresses, from open back with gloves by Aidah, to hot pink disco mini-mirrors waist by Carlos Reaves and heels by Jezabelles Custom Shoes.

Spotted: Maggy Fancy Francois and Christine Brooks, Paul Wharton, Aidah Fontenot, Kate Michael, Maurissa Potts, Vanessa Camozzi, Michael Clements and Anchyi Wei, Maggie O’Neil and Chris Roche, Donna Donella, Elaine Mensah,  Bianca Chardei, Rachel DeMita, Tim Coburn and about 6 thousand more people *just kidding*

Rock it, spin it, shake it!

First “Put on gloves” event was a tremendous success

30 Jan

On January 27, Town Danceboutique was all buzz and movement, unlike everything around the neighborhood which was frozen and sleepy. First annual “Put on gloves” fashion fundraiser, benefiting The Trevor project and Capital Queer Prom, was a smashing success. Starting with the hosts, Will Thomas of Fox5 and Anji Corley of WPGC, continuing with fantastic fashion show, featuring fancy and classic styles, including boxing gloves, and finishing with DC very own fantastic performer Mýa… everything was extremely engaging and charming. Even speeches of thanks, that, let’s be honest, often tend to be boring and long, were very warm and full of heartfelt emotions. Looked like the whole event was very thought through and planned accurate to the finest details.

Amazing event and I’m looking forward to seeing more from Svelte

put on the gloves, stop bullying
