The 5th RAWards in Downtown Los Angeles

On Sunday January 19th, Tracey and I attended the 5th annual RAWards at the historic Exchange LA in Downtown Los Angeles. We were recently introduced to the RAW Artists organization and were blown away by this amazing concept. RAW Artists brings together up and coming artists and designers from all backgrounds and (artistic) industries, helping them get their names out there, holding showcases all around the country in major cities. Once a year they have an awards show, celebrating the créme de la créme. They awarded individuals with awards “Artist of the Year,” and “Accessories Designer of the Year” as well as awards in makeup excellence and performing arts, just to name a few.

It was a great show, and we definitely enjoyed our gift bags, packed with little goodies across the board. Not to mention the VIP lounge, filled with yummy treats from Artisan House and a great viewing area of the festivities, were just the cherry on top.

Next up is the RAW Artists Showcase, tonight at Ohm Nightclub in Hollywood. Fill you in soon on what’s set to be awesome evening!

Here are a few of our favorites from the Awards…
