by Brandon LaBelle
"We last spoke with The DL Brand’s creator, Dennis Som in the article “Where Hood meets High Fashion” and heard about his past, his style, and his aspirations to bring the party where ever he goes. I wanted to meet up with Dennis again before his newest event Beauties & Bowties goes down in the books as an annual, Must Attend." Past article.

"The event was organized by Secrets Fashion Agency and The DL Brand in order to give fashion professionals the opportunity to network before fashion week kicks into full gear. Everyone that is involved with fashion week will be working non-stop and won't be able to enjoy the weeks' festivities. SFA & DL plan on making this an annual event which will give guests a sneak peak of what is to come during fashion week. This years’ event had a humanitarian aspect that stretch beyond our countries boarders."
