Event Recap: Cultivate Review in Video/Pics
Still riding high off of last weekend’s festivities, we offer you a short recap and review in the form of words, pictures, and a very dope video.
The night started off with a show of art by a small community of artists and photographers. Photos, Painted Vinyl Records, Custom Painted Shoes, and Throw Ups lined the walls beside the stage where later in the night, the voices and sounds of the up and coming would boom out of the the club speakers.
People from all walks of life trickled in to see what would become of such an event that pulled together art, fashion, music, and food into one jam packed night at one of SF’s trendiest and intimate venues. They were all there; family and friends, the artsy, the musicians and music enthusiasts, the designers and the fashionistas, the nine to fivers, the business-men and women, the party animals and the supporters, as well as food providers and connoisseurs. The list goes on.
Set up in Azul’s front patio were clothing vendors, AJ Clothing & Bay Area’s beloved food carts, Adobo Hobo, Mr. Aroz Caldo, Tiny Treats, and Suga Me Sweets.
The show commenced and the crowd gathered closer to listen as LadyRAY of KMEL took to the mic to announce who would start off the night. Mark Roa, a Bay Area vocalist, set it off with a bit of sexy by serenading the women of the crowd with an amazing cover of Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are.” Following his performance was a runway show of two local clothing lines, Knoxx and SRxMM, showcasing their fall line of clever and clean designs.
To follow that segment, Priscilla Cruz took to the stage with her guitarists blasting out the livest set of the night. Easily a crowd favorite as even the hardest hip hop heads rocked out to her original songs. The two lines that followed were SF’s own The Fword and 4Fifteen, reppin’ Frisco to the fullest with their own original streetwear designs.
The third segment started off with Bay Area’s fly emcee, Mike Dash E, performing original music the way only he could deliver. DJ BigJon of SBC DJs transitioned us into the next show of fashion by Diamonds and Guns and Two In the Shirt (aka TITS), clothing lines well recognized by their following of underground streetwear enthusiasts.
Family Bidness opened the fourth and final segment, beastin’ it out on the mic with members Barnone and CB getting the crowd up on their feet. The final designers to close off the night were Cecilia Aragon with her women’s couture line, “Punky Couture” and her men’s line “CA Couture” as well as Arnelle Lozada’s “Streetwear’s Finest.”
Sponsoring the event were LadyRAY of KMEL, Gus of WeEating.com, and Jerisa of Dela Cruz Design Studio.
Many thanks to the photographers, videographers, supporters, bloggers, and incredible models.
It was the work of a community of go getters and entrepreneurs at its best, and it can, of course, only get better.
Peace, Love, and Cultivate,
