AuNaturel Presents: "The Gathering" Part II

305 Day was truly celebrated as Naturalistas from all over the city assembled for AuNaturel Miami's second installment of “The Gathering." “The Gathering," part two, successfully delivered its promise of Good Vibes, Beautiful People, and Unique Vendors.

Uniting Naturalistas, from all over South Florida, for an evening of music, vibes, and libations. Patrons could expect nothing less than an amazing time of fellowship with their curly sisters. Upon arrival, guests were gifted complimentary swag bags with goodies and products from some of natural hair cares biggest companies:Tropic Isle Livin, Oyin, and Acure.

Not only did guests have the opportunity to connect with new and old curl friends, but vendors provided access to a few of South Florida’s most exclusive lifestyle, jewelry, and clothing brands.  Vendors included: Conscious T-shirts by I and I Supply Co, leather, one-of-a-kind, custom made sandals by Jamaica Sandal Company, handcrafted jewelry for kings and queens by Elouinia Exantus, and others.

Guests had plenty to choose from as they maneuvered their way around Sidebar Miami's dimly lit, ethereal outdoor garden. As the night progressed, the venue was packed with women of all skin tones, hair types, and nationalities sipping hand-crafted cocktails while vibing and dancing to the reggae and hip-hop sounds curated by local Miami selector, DJ Bre. Men also joined the vibes in support of these celebrated Naturalistas.

The Miami Natural hair movement may still be catching up to the likes of bigger cities like New York, Atlanta, and L.A., but AuNaturel is proving to be another pioneer of the movement following behind the legendary Natural Trendsetters, who also joined in celebrating the next wave of this movement. Big, Big shout out to AuNaturel, not only for reactivating the naturalist style, but also, for taking it to another level.

The Gathering is not just about parties, or natural hair events for women, but it's an opportunity for women to congregate, connect, and celebrate Natural beauty at its finest! The concept, birthed by creative entrepreneurs, Simone Russell and Sheena Coke, is based on their mission to unite women, of all colors, by inspiring them to love themselves. AuNaturel aims to help women embrace their God given hair and beauty, to foster both social and self-awareness, and to cultivate a community of love and encouragement for, not only women of color,

But for all women who choose to live AuNaturel.

All in All, AuNaturel is bigger than hair. It's a movement: A lifestyle endorsing love, light, and awareness for all things beautiful.
