Cool Cruel World Presents Leading Ladies: The Femcee Edition

[ 0 ] September 6, 2010 |

You want lady rhyme slingers? Then come out to South Paw Tuesday to kick off fashion week by screening Leading Ladies Trois: Femcees, a documentary showcasing female talent in hip-hop created by @CocoaBella of Cool Cruel World.

About Leading Ladies (from the press release):
The “Leading Ladies” series is an idea conceived last summer to celebrate independent women with an entrepreneurial spirit in the entertainment industry. Women who never had to compromise their morals to do the things that they wanted to do. Women who work in a male-dominated industry and fight hard to maintain themselves. We have done 2 installations of this project this year, and this is our 3rd.

Installation 1 was “STREET-WEAR BRANDS”. We shot the CEO’s of the following companies: Most Official Bitches (Leah McSweeney), Hellz Bellz (Lanie Albanza), Dime Piece (Ashley & Laura), Violette (Vashtie Kola) and MadeMe NYC (Erin McGee). I interviewed them, edited it into a documentary and presented it for media, influencers and fashion-elite at the Sole Food NYC Gallery.

Installation 2 was “RADIO PERSONALITIES and DEE-JAYS”. I interviewed Dee Vazquez (hot 97), Angela Yee (Sirius Radio), Jasmine Solano (Frank 151 radio), and NIRE (MOST OFFICIAL BITCHES). The event was a success, sponsored by KISS COSMETICS, and took place at SAPPHIRE LOUNGE, NYC. Our 3rd installment is: FEMCEES (female emcees)……

Come for the documentary, stay for the open bar HENNESSY BLACK, AMAZING performance by fresh, new artist: Latasha A. (L.A), and the wonderful give-aways! A HUGE thank you to our sponsors: Joi French (of PIRATE ROMANCE) is a cutting-edge accessory designer (who also makes some awesome tee’s and leggings) and has been kind enough to co-sponsor our event! We will be giving a very lucky winner a GRACE JONES inspired piece of hers that is KITTY KAT FIERCE! She also has a special jewelry piece for the fellas to win! Next, Flud WATCHES– the contemporary watch company has also signed on as a co-sponsor. We’ll be giving away some of their HAUTE watches! Some lucky winners will walk away VERY happy… Lastly, our good friends at KISS COSMETICS (who also sponsored our last LEADING LADIES series), has given us some more lovely cosmetics that will be raffled away in gift bags…. NYC, STAY TUNED! And remember: Always BE INSPIRED, AND BE INSPIRING!
