In the ambience of the minimized-fuss in the boutique atmosphere and calm of ‘The Narativ,’ located at 385 Tompkins in Brooklyn, NYC on an easy Wednesday evening, Liz Ogumbo boldly took over the Boutique while extending her sapphire of finesse through her wine-tasting fused with the element of style offering from her fashion brand “Liz Ogumbo” through the lens of New York Fashion Photographer, Donn Thompson of Drac Inc a force within the photographic-sphere.
It was slightly just about 30 minutes before the official hour when Trini Amber brought a touch of her beauty therapy into the house while gently accentuating Liz’s features to bring in the right kind play to match the fashion that would later be revealed that evening.
The Soiree attracted a diverse group of New Yorkers whose senses were tantalized by Liz Ogumbo’s wine whilst their vision was stimulated through her fashion element as Liz changed clothes every 20 minutes. While Amber switched up Liz’s look through a variety of make-up looks for each style, the shots snapped through Don’s lens all through the evening capturing moments you and I will remember for a while.
Liz Ogumbo Wines included her signature Pinotage 2013 “Mon Homme,” and her Chenin Blanc Chardonnay 2017 “Msenangu.” Liz Ogumbo Wines are referred to as music in wine due to the fact that all her wines begin their journey through the influence of her music. Her two debut wines; Msenangu & Mon Homme are inspired by her music from her latest album, KenSoul The Lotus Chapter.
