Grammy nominated singer Ledisi hosted the Design Essentials Celebrity Gifting Lounge (held during the Essence Music Festival) where a gathering of tastemakers, media and celebrities enjoyed an afternoon of pampering and style in New Orleans. The VIP crowd enjoyed the company of the music star who posed for photos, shared the inspiration behind the songs from her latest CD, The Truth, and spoke candidly on everything from her sexy new makeover to her successful move to Los Angeles and her New Orleans upbringing. “Design Essentials is the only thing that allows me to set my locs,” revealed the R&B star to guests.

Beauty and body products from The Look By Joi,  Jones & Rose and Morning Glamour added to the pampering vibe of the setting as did the music courtesy of DJ Shake Em Up. As media partner, Sophisticate’s Black Hair provided free copies or our latest issue—just the thing for attendees to enjoy while getting a chair massage or a coif touch-up in the lounge.  The lucky VIPs in attendance also received the full suite of Design

Essentials Natural and Design Essentials Salon System products. Here are just some of our favorite moments from the event…
