Live Review: Project ETHOS Love Sick @ Music Box

The Project Ethos Love Sick event at the Music Box turned out to be the hot spot Friday night attracting thousands of Angelinos for a night of fashion, live music and art installations. The event featured 10 fashion lines, 80 models, two live music acts, 12 visual artists and five fashion vendors. Project Runway’s alumnus Nick Verreos hosted the show and christened the catwalk by sashaying down the runway before introducing the musical act of the night, Miguel. After the musical performance, designer styles debuted on the runway.

  1. This event is the best event in Hollywood imho! Where else can we go to watch a freaking fashion show, see art, buy awesome accessories (picked up some Bella Soles they rock!) and see an amazing live act like MIGUEL!!! And it cost me $20!? that's unreal! I bet in acouple months it's gonna cost $50 to see Miguel alone! KUDOS PROJECT ETHOS! Oh and Nick Verreos and Anna Lynett from PRunway wer both super cute.


  2. The first time I ever saw Bruno Mars was at Project Ethos last year @ LA Fashion week. As I sit here watching VH1's “Do Something Awards,” I was shocked and happy to see Bruno Mars perform during this awards show. Project Ethos knows good music and I'm sure we'll be hearing more from Miguel in the future.
