Must See! FTK~Konnect’s Luxury Love Experience “Roaring Pearls & Ties” in Washington DC was Splendid



BellaNaijarians are accustomed to the gorgeous events in Nigeria, we are always so excited to explore new social scenes and for the second year running, we are sharing a glimpse into FTK~Konnect‘s annual soiree.

The sequel to Bond With Me 007 was carefully crafted and perfectly executed by the event creator & planner Feyikemi Kukoyi of FTK~Konnect Events Valentine’s day weekend at the Hotel Monaco in Washington DC.

FTK curated another Luxury Love Experience titled Roaring Pearls & Ties!

FTK~Konnect set out to create a unique event that exudes class and inclusive of all lovers across the board regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, and or background. The uber-luxe event brought together DMV’s A list vendors thereby skyrocketing the second edition of the Luxe Love Experience to an Oscar level production.

Roaring Pearls & Ties was a Black Tie affair and the guests who attended truly embodied the Iconic Vintage Style in their 1920’s attire. The ladies showed up in their sophisticated burlesque inspired looks ready to pose on the red carpet!

The interactive set design was reminiscent of a high-class great Gatsby themed party. The engaging agenda included sophisticated Love Missions to introduce or enhance relations through unique scavenger hunt games and engaging physical games hosted by Chardelle Moore of FOX 45 News & Olumide Ayoola!

The international mouth watering hors d’oeuvres & dinner selections were designed specifically for epicureans of fine dining. The rhythm was breath-taking. Distinguished guests from the Washington DC, Baltimore MD metropolitan areas and as far away as Canada, The Carribean, New York City and Nigeria, were in attendance for the grand production.

Proceeds from the production will benefit Globally Igniting Africa – GIA, a leading non-profit organization based in the USA with different arms all over Africa that seek to empower women globally.
