Situated in an antique furniture company warehouse, one room led to another elaborately decorated and overwhelmingly eye-catching stimulating spaces. It was like being in a utopian maze of talented people, decadent artistic designs, and endless new collaboration opportunities. A DJ was attracting a dedicated dance circle, a musician was drumming out to the vibes of the event, a painter was spray- painting photorealistic pictures, and two fire dancers were impressing the audience with their incredible grace and talents.

As the night went on, the crowd continued to grow, attracting a vibrant flow of cool and hip millennials. The event was truly a photographer's paradise, a dream come true. There was so much to capture. In the first room there was an large table-sized arrow situated on the desk that models took turns sitting on while photographer's flashed their cameras. In the same room there was a fluorescent light with a white sheet that models posed in front of. There was a dazzling display of decor; gold-framed mirrors hanging on the walls, silver candlesticks, a blurry TV screen. Everywhere you looked there was something worth gazing at. In another room was a red velvet swing that a model was dangling from.
