The Event:

    The LH LUXE BEAUTY AWARDS and BRAND MODEL Competition Brunch Gala, took place at the Josephine Butler Parks Center in Washington DC on Sunday March 12, 2023.  Doors opened at 1pm for this event and doors closed at 5pm. 

    The Hosts for this event included CEO, Celebrity, International Model and Actress Leela Heart, International Event Liaison Director Tracye Snow, Nathaly Diaz, Erinn Waters and Felipe Vasquez. 

The Venue:

    The Josephine Butler Parks Center venue is a beautiful revived mansion nestled in the heart of the Meridian Hill Neighborhood in Washington DC, near the Columbia Heights area. This venue is a very versatile location offering multiple spaces to be used throughout. The multi-level floors and multiple rooms in this venue allow for a diverse group of events to go on, simultaneously. This venue has been used in the past for weddings, bridal shows, fundraiser events and now awards shows.

    This venue was PERFECT for this type of event and all that was offered to the guests.  Guests had the freedom to maneuver from vendor space to Runway space for the event, due to the size and flow of the space.  

    This event had a little of everything for everyone! As you entered the first floor of the space to your left and to your right you would find jewelry vendors, clothing vendors, health care vendors and more.  Some of the vendors at this event included, Lita & Co., Icon Line Design, Millie's International Creations, Tempting Treasurezz By Jannice Bray, LIL BIT OF POSH, Ultimate Don's and Divas Modeling Agency, Only 1 of A Kind Boutique and TRICEYS DC, who provided the food, which was amazing!  Of course an event can not be complete without a 360 Camera and a photo booth which were both on site as well!

    On the second floor, guests were greeted with more vendors and guests could take their seats in the main room, near the stage where the beauty award show would take place.

    With any fashion show, the photo pit is important. Show producers genuinely want a variety of photos from a variety of  different sources at their event and this show was no different! 

    At the "Head" of the Runway all photographers were staged and ready to shoot.  The runway was lined with a RED Carpet and gold chiavari chairs line the aisle on both sides.

The Experience

    This beauty award show was amazingly put together.  There was a little of everything, fashion, shopping, vendors, entertainment and so much more.  The entertainment was exceptional, the guests were phenomenal and my experience at this event, can be described as one that was felt with excitement and great anticipation; and I felt that the show hosts, showed a great amount of care for the guests, which is not always the case for some show host and show producers. I believe that the way that a person is made to feel at an event can also add to their over all experience at the event. 

    As a 17 year vet in the event planning industry and as someone who has produced her own show events in the past, I can say that the amount of care that went into planning this event was shown and no detail was left un-touched.
