Summer is officially here, we’re feeling the heat and last weekend we kicked the summer season off with our #SummerOfBRNZ event. Last Saturday, we invited South Florida to join us at Drinkhouse Fire & Ice Bar in South Beach for the ultimate summer party for all fashion and beauty lovers. It’s been exactly 2 years since we first launched BRNZ, and as cliché as it may sound, we decided to take a chance and had no idea where it would take us. The support and turn out from the event was so surreal and we’re so thankful for all the people we’ve met along the way and the ones who have been there for us since Day 1! The night surpassed our expectations and we were left in awe with how everything turned out. Whether you attended or were there in spirit, we want to thank every single one of you from the bottom of our hearts!
Attendees were able to network with South Florida’s most notable creatives, influencers, brands, and entrepreneurs, while enjoying the “Ice Bar Experience” by entering the breathtaking, 23-degree winter wonderland constructed from 100,000 pounds of pure glacial ice. A complimentary drink was provided thanks to Florida’s own Victor George Vodka. It’s super smooth and gluten free, so what’s not to love?! We met the owner at the Aventura Macy’s Event for Black History Month and knew we had to have him and his brand involved.
Britaché by Bri, designed by Brittany Sconiers, kicked off the first two fashion shows displaying her swimwear and ready to wear collections. Each piece was bold and full of intricate details and cuts that gave a unique flair. Britaché by Bri designs are definitely for the fashionable woman that wants to make a statement and stand out from the crowd. We were so glad to be able to showcase her collections at our event!
LuvB is a women’s contemporary online boutique launched in April 2018 by BRNZ cofounder, Brittany Bucknor. As the last fashion show for the event, the show featured swimwear and ready to wear pieces full of colorful and fun prints that are perfect for summer!
Each LuvB swimwear look also featured stunning accessories from Mona Rae Insignia Boutique, which was also a pop-up vendor at the event. Each accessory is full of detail and super glam!
We also had a special appearance by a professional bellydancer as an intermission between the fashion shows. She danced with amazing props that included a sword and candelabra.
Attendees were also able to get manicures with cute designs done by Nini’z Nails.
The first 50 guests received gifts from SweetSpot Labs, [solidcore], LuvB, Not Your Basic Chic, The Makeup Club and more! The first 20 were treated to an additional gift bag that had an amazing set by Jo Malone. Being on time pays off sometimes ;). All attendees were also automatically entered in giveaways by [solidcore], The Bloggers Block, WallsPop Group, Samelia’s World, SkinFix & Luxe Lash.
We can’t wait for our next event and hope to see you there!
