Earlier on this month the Starilized team celebrated our brands fifth year anniversary. Being a black female entrepreneur is far from easy. Initially selling jewelry out of her college dorm, Patricia has grown, and positioned Starilized as an afro-centric go to brand for African inspired vintage pieces. Starilized's 5-Point Anniversary Bash was magical, artistically innovative, and daring. Starilized collaborated with a young, and talented Nigerian Designer named Adaobi. Not only does Adaobi refer to her clothing line Izu&Vash as "Fashion for the bold, and vibrant" but she styled the models in stunning modern, ankara outfits. Last but not least, DJ Hol Up, a young, and rising Nigerian DJ filled the night with a great fusion of Afrobeats and Dancehall tunes. If you were not in attendance, you definitely missed out. However, that's what I am here for... to catch you guys up:

The interior design of the space was spectacular. Embodying a very Christian aesthetic, it was very powerful to watch black bodies positioned in front of religious art:
