some like it RAW

One of my clients told me about RAWartists last week and I'm so glad she did! Because their website explains it better than I could...

RAW:natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists. We're a community made up of creative individuals across the nation. Our mission is to provide independent artists within the first 10 years of their career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. We welcome all genres of art including independent film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, hairstylists, makeup artists and more. We encourage the creative success of the many visionaries and storytellers of our generation.RAW currently operates in 54 cities across the United States & Australia and counting ...
Every month, RAW puts on an event that showcases featured artists. There's a DJ, art exhibits, music performances, other random performances (this month there was a huluhooper and a girl that cuts up t-shirts) and a fashion show. Plus, every artist has a booth so it's a good chance to buy stuff and mingle. This month, our client happened to be there so a few of us from the office went to support her and check out the scene. We had a really good time, and for $10 I definitely think we'll be back next month. 

Lots of people hanging out...

Autumn Complex played lots of covers. As usual, everyone loves any version of 'Rollin' In The Deep.'

Hair and makeup was done by RAW artists, too.

Metalli Jewelry had awesome pieces that showed really well, and I ended up getting one the next week for my birthday! 

 Fluro Swimwear was the last part of the fashion show, but of course brought the house down with a bunch of scantily clad girls!

So all in all, we had a really fun night and will definitely be back! I'm trying to get my business back up and running and I hope to be a part of RAWartists soon, too! Is there a RAWartists collective in your town? Check it out, if so!
