W Hollywood

What better reasons for a party? On June 10, 2010, Fabrik Magazine and Art Seen hosted a swanky blowout at the new W Hollywood Hotel in honor of Leonardo Ledesma’s Art Seen website launch.Travel Tea Sets

Under the orange glow of the LA sky, women donned the latest fashion trend of miniskirts paired with gladiator-themed heels on the arms of men in rolled up vintage jeans and sport coats. Club music peppered the festive air. Fire pits and candle-lit lanterns positioned around Station Hollywood, one of two outdoor bars in the hotel, illuminated the artwork on display.

With cocktail or wine in hand, guests snacked on French and Mediterranean appetizers along with divine desserts such as macaroons, gold-flecked lemon tarts, opera cake, and individual chocolate mousses catered by Delphine Eatery & Bar.

The Art Seen and Fabrik Magazine event also raised awareness and funds via an art auction for the non-profit Identify Foundation, who recently worked in Rwanda to benefit the endangered Mountain Gorilla. Identify Foundation designs missions to help save endangered species, address critical environmental issues and human rights issues.

The MC and live auction host, Charity Winters, enthusiastically kept the party focused on its philanthropic mission. Thousands of dollars were raised from the sale of artwork from Art Seen’s roster of artists such as Todd Williamson, Gil Mares, Dean Styers, Mattia Biagi, Michael Moon, Luc Leestemaker, Laddie John Dill, James Verbicky, Debra Van Tuinen and many more.

Following are photos from the event…
