The rooftop of the downtown Standard in Los Angeles was home to fashion models, live music and attendees looking for a good time on Sunday night as BluPrint Clothing, Maia.aiaM Lingerie and Jacob Kozinn debuted creatively sexy runway ensembles.
With the bright city lights serving as their backdrop, music acts took the stage before the fashion show. The Boat Times kicked off the night by performing a string of catchy, upbeat songs. The crowd sipped cocktails and bobbed their heads to the music being played by the Los Angeles group.

Besides rock music, hip-hop rhythms were delivered by ElaNef and Zeps. The duo busted out with skillful beat-boxing techniques, which definitely got the crowd moving. Straight out of Brooklyn, NY, these guys energized the crowd despite the muzzled sound system and mics that cut in and out.
After the duo finished their set, Enzyme Dynamite and True Justice performed infectious galactic songs about girls and celebrities. Rapper Enzyme Dynamite put on an entertaining show running around and interacting with the crowd. Audience members danced wildly to notable songs including, “Fly Away,” and “U.F.O,” which brought bass thumping beats to the rooftop.
The last to perform was Brooklyn female rapper Dama Nilz, who claims to have “no image, no gimmicks, delivering straight raw shit,” according to her Myspace page. Dama Nilz rapped about the various types of weed, while performing with an in your face swagger.
