” We want this to be all inclusive. Everyone can come. Everyone can come out, flex a bit and have a great time. We want the whole city behind this one.” – (The Chief Creative Officer of CFA)
Last week I (Simone Yael) not only got to have lunch with one of the flyest, bossiest people in the city- I also got all the spill on what is slated to be the very FIRST event of its kind: the CFA Gala, St. Louis’ version of the popular Met Gala. And trust me yall– this is not a drill.
Ok listen, We have some FLY people here in the city- shoot, in the Midwest. That fact is simply not up for debate. However, as young creatives we also don’t have that many places and events for us to dress up and floss while celebrating themselves and one another.. But the CFA wants to change all of that October 7th. And trust me, you need to be a part of it. From performances to honorees and of course some FLY, amazing fashion- this will be a night not soon forgotten.
And actually, I’m so excited about it, they got me to host a LIVE Q&A session on my twitter (@SimoneActs) Wednesday, June 21st at 7pm central— SO make sure to tune in with ANY questions you have about the event. (I even heard if you sign up for their mailing list you get $15 off– but listen, you didn’t hear that from me.)
