The Future is Female

To celebrate female local leaders and business owners, Southbay magazine organized The Future Is Female presented by Del Amo Fashion Center and Nordstrom.

To celebrate female local leaders and business owners, Southbay magazine organized “The Future Is Female” presented by Del Amo Fashion Center and Nordstrom. After striking a pose, guests made their way into the space dotted with lights and intricate floral installations by Bloom Maven.

The centerpiece of the evening was an inspirational panel moderated by Kori Clausen and featuring Brooke Williamson, Ria Ray, Ursula Beatt, and Kathy Wunderli. Nordstrom created a fall Style Seminar alongside Southbay Fashion Editor Tanya Monaghan.

Guests were pampered with Nordstrom’s Drybar, Sisley, Charlotte Tilbury, and Creed beauty stations, skin rejuvenation treatments by OrangeTwist, gel manicures by The Cosmo Studio, and nostril waxes by BOX Human Landscapers.

Fresh fruit signature cocktails were crafted with Ketel One Botanicals and local favorite Barsha Wine & Spirits poured a full international wine menu. Health-Ade Kombucha served muddled mocktails out of the custom Coastal Cocktails caravan.

Thanks to The Ripe Choice Catering, guests indulged in a charcuterie tower and passed appetizers. Bazille provided bite sized versions of their seasonal menu and for dessert the floral covered POPS cart shared their renowned organic frozen treats.

This event was made possible through the partnerships with Love This Way, CHALK SHOT, Choura Events, Penta, Z Gallerie, and VOX DJs. Thanks to Jessica Lococo of Town Social Events for her continuous support.
