Bringing in celebrities and fashion enthusiast alike, it was standing room only to maneuver long lines and doors into the ballroom at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood, as we all anxiously awaited to view SUE WONG’S Fall Collection 2015 fashion show “MYTHOS & GODDESSES” as she opened Art Heart Fashion Week.
World-renowned British operatic soprano Summer Watson invoked the inter-dimensional SUE WONG Goddesses with her powerful prelude performance. Rock stars Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe, Chris Pitman from Guns N’ Roses, Brit rocker Steve Cooke, and many other celebrities including Billy Zane (Titanic), Sofia Milos (CSI Miami), Kelsey Scott (12 Years a Slave), Richard Grieco, Adina Porter (True Blood), May Wang (Fresh Off the Boat), John Savage, Ronn Moss, Larry Dunn (Earth, Wind and Fire), the Cast of “Little Women LA,” the Harris Brothers, Rachel Federoff and Destine Pfaff (Millionaire Matchmaker), Carolyn Hennesy (True Blood), Jacqueline Murphy, Grammy winner Omar Akram, Vassy (musician), Vincent De Paul, and actress Josie Davis all attended.
