Budding entrepreneur Angela Simmons hosted a presentation for her fashion lifestyle site, AngelaIAm, on February 11th at 404 on the west side of Manhattan. Presented in part by Monster and Sugar Factory, guests were treated to eye candy in models aligning the front wall of the space rocking the latest from Angela’s site, along with a candy bar set-up from Sugar Factory.

The evening brought out a bevy of attendees, including many writers and photographers, reality stars, musicians and more. The lights were blue throughout, playing into the #ElectricDaze theme. The second floor hosted vendor pop-ups from Monster, handbag lines, and a dog accessory line. TJ Mizell (son of Jam Master Jay) provided tunes for the evening. Check out photos in the gallery below.

The after-party for #ElectricDaze was held at The Griffin in the Meatpacking District, known for their very strict door policy. I arrived with my homegirl and one of the DJs of the night, Olivia Dope, to snap the night away, and document an eventful evening.

Angela Simmons was quite gracious, posing for the photo above with me, and later rocking it in the DJ booth alongside TJ Mizell. The night was definitely full of dancing, both on the floor and on chairs, and good vibes all around. Check the party photos below.
