Kayali Fragrance Launch Party

May 28, 2024

At the dazzling launch of Kayali Fragrances’ latest sensation, Vanilla Candy Rock Sugar, the air was sweet with anticipation. Chapman Calligraphy and I Do Illustration added a touch of artistry to the vibrant Sweet Tooth Hotel setting, where guests indulged in a unique scent lab experience.

The highlight? A meet-and-greet with the visionary Mona Kattan, and a special takeaway—a bottle of the new fragrance, custom-engraved on the spot. Together, June and I brought a personal touch to over 90 bottles, creating lasting memories for the influencers in attendance.

Talk Derby to me party

May 4, 2024

I had the pleasure of attending an exquisite event, “Talk Derby to Me,” a collaboration between Diageo and Crown Royal, alongside the renowned “Corks in Cowtown.” The venue for this splendid gathering was none other than the Rusty Nickel Ice House located in the heart of Ft. Worth. The atmosphere was electric, filled with the buzz of conversation as guests mingled, savoring the delectable array of foods and the masterfully crafted cocktails that were on offer.

As the evening unfolded, the air was filled with a sense of luxury and exclusivity, thanks in part to the fabulous party favors that were distributed. A special touch was the presence of @mdinh_art, who captivated everyone with live illustrations, adding a personal and artistic flair to the event. In a delightful partnership, June and I came together to provide guests with custom engraved mint julep cups—a nod to the event’s Derby theme. The intricate engravings included the iconic Crown Royal logo by the talented June, while I added a personal flourish with beautifully engraved initials. It was an event that truly celebrated the spirit of the Derby, leaving an indelible mark on all who attended.

Good for country party

April 24, 2024

I recently received an invitation to add a personal touch to exclusive merchandise for UBank’s inaugural “Good For Country” Weekend. The festivities commenced with a day brimming with entertainment at Eagle’s Bluff Country Club, dedicated to esteemed partners, collaborators, and friends. Attendees reveled in an elegant garden soiree, savoring exquisite cuisine, engaging in golf, and sampling fine wines, all amidst the splendid weather gracing the club’s patio and lawn.

My role for the day? To infuse a personal flair into an array of items for our guests. They delighted in selecting from bespoke hats adorned with their name or initials in shimmering gold foil, tumblers etched with handcrafted personalization, or journals embellished with golden accents. Come Saturday, the bank rolled out the red carpet for a concert featuring Dylan Scott and the Oak Ridge Boys, turning melodies into support for the East Texas Food Bank. 

Bowie House Designer Showcase

February 23, 2024

BOKA Powell’s Design Studio 8080 marked a significant milestone with the grand opening of the Bowie Hotel in Ft. Worth. The event was a splendid affair, highlighting the studio’s sophisticated and stylish design of the city’s latest upscale hotel. Attendees were invited to explore the hotel’s amenities through an exclusive tour, adding a touch of celebration to the evening.

The highlight of the night was the personalization of sumptuous leather journals, courtesy of Carroll Leather. These journals, known for their soft, high-quality leather, were transformed into unique keepsakes with the addition of gold or silver foil personalization I was on hand to provide. What a hit!
