HNYBM Launch went BOOM!
August 17, 2011
Sunday, August 14, 2011, marks the day that honeyBOOM street boutique came in with a bang! Detroiters came to celebrate the vintage line’s launch at the Magic Stick rooftop, The Alley Deck on an overcast afternoon. I wasn’t too worried about the sprinkly forecast, there was a roof over the rooftop, & it was to remain at a steady high 70s. Also, come to find out, all the photographers loved the clouds – better for photos, apparently.
The models got wet & wild during the fashion presentation as they splashed in a pool at the end of the presentation platform. Conveniently, the pool water was really warm! Some of the models even lingered to swim in the pool after the presentation was over lol.. See some of the photos here, taken by Detroit Metromix! Launch credits on the flip!
