On April 20, I attended the First Annual fashion show and website launch for local Tony Dang’s clothing line, Half Ounce of Life. It took place at Dragonfly Sushi Bar & Grill and housed hundreds of eager fashionistas sipping spirits, dressed to impress.
A parody of the Charlie Sheen interview on 20/20 with designer Dan directed the show and filled the space between wardrobe changes. Nylon metallic’s, cotton, jewels, floral, beads, jeans and leather adorned each and every model. DJ Yemi provided a mixture of dutch-house and hip-hop and played from the sky bar above the runway.
With the help of Christina DeAntonis, owner of Altered Ego and once celebrity stylist to artists like Chris Brown and Keri Hilson, Dang said that his dream of breaking into the fashion scene has been possible.
The vibe at the show was relaxed and with profits made from donations going to the Japan relief fund, attendees were eager to show support for not only Half Ounce of Life, but for a good cause.
Last week was a real step out of the classic Morgantown scene and was a great start to spring.
Morgantown can look forward to seeing more of Tony Dang’s Half Ounce of Life designs at Altered Ego in the near future, because he has really made a statement.
