melissa x rider London launch event

Hi dolls!


On the 17th April I did something and I think you are going to love it.




Have you ever heard of Galeria Melissa? No? Let me tell you about it then, it’s a beautiful shoe shop that looks exactly like the names suggests, an art gallery (!!) which makes it very easy on the eye and a great Insta spot when you are running out of ideas.






Now, I did not go there for the shoes, but if you are in Covent Garden (LDN) you should really check their footwear out, but for a networking event aimed for the cool BAME kids in the block, and who’s your upcoming black blogger next door? MOI.




This evening was organised by this ultra talented London based photographer, Romany Francesca who thought that a networking event in a cool venue would be a great opportunity to come together and maybe find your new collab or find new inspiration, and it did happen.

The night was super chilled, the music was great and this became an opportunity for the Brazilian brand to launch their new collaboration Melissa x Rider - smart, huh?

What I loved about the night is how everyone was so open to tell you what’s up, I personally ended up voguing with a complete stranger and I wished someone had recorded the scene.




Towards the end of the event Francesca thanked whoever attended with this beautiful speech, so beautiful I almost wanted to cry.


So thank you babe for the invite.


Until the next time.


Take care of you babe.


With love,


Gabriela Valentina
