This past Thursday we attended the Miami edition of RAW Artist at LMNT. In case you are not familiar, RAW has given great opportunities to a lot of up and coming artists, designers and musicians, including our own Amber Monique! This season’s RAW event was no exception, we came across a lot of amazing talent, plus did some great networking!
Our HypeGirl intern Mel took over finding us the coolest fashion designers, artists, singers – well you get it! Check out some of our favorite finds and stay tuned for more interviews coming soon on the blog!
Fashion designs by Michelle Baker for her line, JustSheli. JustSheli is custom made, one of kind pieces for women, men and children. Her designs are beautifully crafted and very well made. She was definitely one of our favorite RAW artists! We will be keeping our eyes on her!
High Class – an all female group – was a crowd favorite! These ladies took the stage by storm and had the crowd jamming with their renditions of 90’s R&B songs. The group consists of three talented ladies, two singer and one rapper/singer who had us all moving our feet.
Plum Flower Creations was another favorite and had some amazing pieces that we can’t wait to purchase more of! All pieces are handmade and designed to last. One of our favs was the bracelet to ring piece featured below. Visit their website for a closer look of their unique jewelry!
Celebrity paintings by Ava Carmen were very cool and unique. She displayed her “mixed media” mosaic for her showcase, which featured over 64 painting total of celebrities and models combined. We loved her painting on Jhene Aiko of course! Ava paint more than just celebs, so be sure visit her art store and look out for more of her!
J. Acciani was another artist that we truly loved. Her pieces are not only full of color, but each piece has a story that you want to hear. Her use of multi media along with traditional painting is truly inspiring. And she doesn’t limit herself to just canvas, she paints instruments as well, like the guitar featured below. Our ultimate favorite from her collection was the Elephant in Motion piece. You can learn more about J. Acciani and purchase pieces on her website.
The beautiful photography behind Mel is by Sam Crowther. We usually just cover the ladies, but had to give a special shoutout to this amazing work!
