On Friday night actress, DJ, and television personality LaLa Anthony hosted a pop up shop event on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.  The busy wife and mother is adding fashion designer to her long list of job titles.  The evening began with a brief fashion presentation of the line, and LaLa’s mom actually appeared as a real life model as she attended the event sporting a bright red fitted long sleeved dress from the line.

The collection includes pencil skirts, shirts, jumpers, and dresses in black, royal blue, red, and white, and ranges from $35 for a t shirt to $250 for a jumper.  5th and Mercer is available for sale at www.shopbop.com.

Guests included model Shaun D. Ross (who I’m kind of obsessed with right now) Monica and Shannon Brown, Po and Dice from LaLa’s Full Court Life, Charlamagne Tha God, and a bevy of bloggers.  There was an open bar and very tasty hors devours circulated the room as the DJ played all the latest rap hits.  All in all it was a night of fun, food, drinks, and socializing.  Glad I attended!
