After a very successful Hautebox I & Hautebox II our company DNA Imagery is proud to invite people to Hautebox III coming August 17th, 2013 to a private estate in Montecito. The show will highlight this summer season’s decadent and luxurious styles with a bohemian chic edge. Photographers, models, stylists, make up artists, and of course fashion lovers are all invited alike to enjoy a unique show and a great opportunity to network in benefit of the local non-profit Youth Interactive.
Doors will open at 6pm. The fashion show will begin at 7.15pm offering perfect lighting right before sunset around the outdoor pool setting. The show will feature pieces from established LA & NYC based designer Lotta Stensson’s (www.lottanyc.com) summer collection paired with extravagant & unique jewelry from Ciao Bella in Montecito in addition to Brazilian bikinis from Coral Biquinis & Liquido. Fancy headdresses from RadHasLove will top off the show.
Walter Claudio Salon Spa is the official hair-stylist and the professional Veronica Ramos will be providing make-up for the show.
There will be a multitude of entertainment throughout the night. Local band Freakin’ On Speakers will be performing live. In the past 2 years the band has gained publicity as one of the most popular bands in town and can claim to be a finalist of The Independent’s Battle Of The Bands of 2012. Eclectic indie summer house music will be provided by Gotta Dance Dirty’s DJ “aRod”. Special guests will be surprising attendees with a new kind of performance you can’t find anywhere else (surpise performance not to be advertised).
Professional photo studio lighting will be setup by DNA, for everyone to experience life as a model for the night.
The event is being held in benefit of Youth Interactive non-profit & to help aid them in continued success of their mission of empowering youth with the spirit of entrepreneurship. DNA has worked closely with Youth Interactive for over 7 months & offers mentorship and guidance to young aspiring entrepreneurs at their location in the Funk Zone weekly.

About DNA Imagery:
Since the opening of the new Studio in January 2012, DNA has earned a growing reputation for it’s quality photography/videography/media design, it’s online blog with an ever growing base of national & international followers and has become a successful/hip art gallery and venue for special events such as the Surfaid International Benefit Show & Hautebox. DNA created something that simply did not exist in Santa Barbara before - a venue for haute-couture fashion events that serve as industry mixer as well as a unique entertainment opportunity for guests - It’s “Hautebox”. Hautebox II, which was held in December 2012 was a great success with over 120 guests. With the event DNA was able to make an appreciated donation to the local non-profit Heart Ventures. DNA is committed to making the third Hautebox an even bigger success with an expanded entertainment program; due to the growth of the event Hautebox III has moved from the DNA Studio in Santa Barbara to a private Montecito estate. DNA hopes to raise even more money this time around in order to help local non-profit Youth Interactive.
