Cosmopolitan Connections mixed style and business networking during “The Ana Zepol Couture ‘Leather & Lace’ Accessories & NvRA Model Event!” held on Jan. 17 at The Beatles Revolution Lounge inside The Mirage Resort.
The event featured Ana Zepol Couture leather and lace handbags, purses and accessories, according to Yvette Brown, founder of Cosmopolitan Connections.
Ana Zepol Couture features customized accessories.
“It’s basically a build-a-bear handbag concept,” Desiree Ana Lopez-Burroughs, owner of Ana Zepol Couture, explained. “We are showcasing the different styles of leathers that women can customize their handbags out of.”
According to Yvette, the accessories were “modeled by beautiful models in fashion by Boutikitou, with hair by XIS at Euphoria, and makeup by Alysia’s makeup.”
The idea behind the latest event came when Desiree approached Yvette.
“Desiree is a regular supporter of our events,” Yvette explained. “She approached me to throw an event to showcase her pieces.”
“I’m a huge fan of the line so I was happy to oblige,” Yvette added. “I also love showcasing local businesses to both our event guests and our database of 11,000 locals.”
Desiree was thrilled with the response from the event.
“The turnout is great,” Desiree stated. “We are getting really good response with the bags.”
The Beatles Revolution Lounge was a fantastic venue for the event, according to Yvette.
“I just love The Beatles Revolution Lounge, as it’s where I met my fiancée for the first time at one of my Cosmopolitan Connections events back in April last year,” Yvette remarked. “It is an intimate venue with an amazing celebrity backdrop for our event guests to have photos taken by Roger Bennett whilst they are at our event.”
Next up for Cosmopolitan Connections is “Yvette Brown’s Birthday & Engagement Party to Eric Auger!” on Feb. 6 at Gold Lounge inside the Aria Resort. The event celebrates Yvette’s recent engagement to Eric Auger as well as her birthday. Festivities begin at 7 p.m.
Yvette stated, “We have gift Bags courtesy of ‘L Marie’s Bare Elegance’ for the 1st 25 guests to arrive.”
