Grads Host Pop-Up Shop During Super Bowl Weekend
Visual Communications Graduate Tashiba Jones-Wilson and Fashion Design Alumna Lela Christine are hosting the Best Luxury Lifestyle Pop-Up Shop on Friday, February 11, 2022 and Saturday, February 12, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The two-day weekend event, which is open to the public, kicks off at Jones-Wilson’s Matte Argyle boutique at Runway Playa Vista in celebration of the NFL Super Bowl LVI 2022 game on Sunday, February 13, 2022.
The pop-up shop event will honor Collette V. Smith, the NFL’s first African American female coach. As the founder and president of Believe N You, Inc., Collette has become a true change agent and dedicated her life to empowering youth. The vegan brand Naturade will serve as the event’s health and wellness partner providing a nutritious smoothie bar inside the pop-up store.
“We’re all about supporting amazing products created by local Angelenos,” said Jones-Wilson. “The pop-up store will place the spotlight on innovative brands such as Sweet Rock Rose, Blessed from the Roots, Knotwtr (Eyewear), XIVI created by Taylor Rose, People of Color, LA’ F.E.M. candles, and a plethora of distinct Angeleno small businesses.” Matte Argyle also carries brands by fellow FIDM Grads such as Kevan Hall, Izayla, and LIVD.
