The Fitted Gallery 1yr Anniversary Party

Think about the significance of this...

A small boutique storefront that specializes in fitted baseball caps, owned by young Black professionals, has willed it's way through the toughest economy America has seen since the '30s.  I won't get into economics or statistics but this much is clear; This means that the quality of product and quality of execution greatly improves a business's chances for success, regardless of economic climate.  The Fitted Gallery understands this and applies it to their boutique.

In celebration of their first full year of business, the team at The Fitted Gallery called on King magazines "Web Girl of the Year" Milani Rose and DJ Bedtyme 357 (DJ for Remy Ma) to join in on the festivities.

Joint owners and brothers Phil and Broadway played host to friends, family, customers and fans of Milani Rose that came to the shop.  Guests were given a free Bedtyme 357 mixtape, hosted by Milani Rose and Ms. Rose signed photos and posed for pictures.  A few lucky visitors received free fitted caps courtesy of sponsor Mitchell & Ness.

Ms. Rose was also promoting a book she wrote for entitled 'Souls of my Young Sisters'.  The book showcases the personal stories of 60 women.  Ms. Rose, a "Jill" of all trades, most known for her modeling, is also a writer, public speaker and recording artist...and that's just the short list.

It was a great time out and it's always a pleasure to see friends reaching for their dreams and making it.  Congratulations to The Fitted Gallery staff!  Here's to many more years of success.

Here are a few more shots from the evening.  Of course, hop over to my Flickr to see more.
