Recap: Design Essentials & at Essence Fest 2014

By Kelly Harris, Founder & Editor

I am still buzzing from the 2014 Essence Fest. I didn’t realize I covered so many events until I started downloading photos and going through business cards.

One of my favorite events of the weekend was the Big Easy Celebrity Style Lounge at the W Hotel.  Design Essentials® invited me to attend the event featuring Ledisi and music from her new album, “The Truth.”

The event also showered attendees with gifts from Design Essentials® which included their popular Sleek Edge Control, which is perfect for someone like me with locs. Jones & Rose luxury body butters and Morning Glamour also gave away goodies. Did I mention I got my eyebrows done by brow expert Joi Mebane of The Look By Jo? Loved every minute! I received a sample of her eyebrow powder. Oh, and there was food too. Crab cakes, red beans and rice and other local favorites. Chair massages, complimentary cocktails and  DJ Shak’Em Up made it a great afternoon. Thanks Design Essentials!
