Burton x Hellotittie: Celebrating Women In The Arts
For the first time Hellotittie collaborated with an established snowboard company, Burton, at their NYC flagship store in SOHO Manhattan. This event was a huge success! A lot of people came out to show their support to the 11 artists being featured. In the event there were 22 pieces of artwork being displayed on the wall as soon as guest arrived. What would a Hellotittie event be without live painters? A total of four live painters (Epiphany Bradshaw, Alyssa Capri, Catdactyl and Amara Martin) drew on Burton snowboards, there was hair braiding, sponsored drinks by Owls Brew, Recess and JuneShine. There was also a live DJ by the name of Julianne who played an all female music mix with songs by Missy Elliott, Ciara, Mya, Rihanna, Beyoncé, etc. The night was just EPIC! Everyone who attended loved the music, conversed with the artists, won free raffles prizes by Hellotittie and Susan&Me. Towards the ending of the night all artist got a change to speak to everyone on behalf of their artwork and a few pieces were sold.
