On Monday night, the 135th Street Agency and Strength of Nature LLC hosted a holiday party and Upfront for the Beautiful Textures Texture Manageability System at ARENA in NYC. R&B Singer Sevyn Streeter also performed.

Hundreds packed the venue, which was outfitted with white poinsettias, a silver Christmas tree and green and purple lighting.

135th founder/CEO Shante Bacon and Managing Partner Saptosa Foster were on hand to welcome friends, family and special guests which included Monami Entertainment’s Mona Scott-Young, beauty expert Tia Williams, Tina Davis of Phase Too Management, Atlantic Records’ Joi Pitts, Shaheem Reid, Michaela Angela Davis, Ariane Davis (“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”) and many more. Event hosts Angela Yee (Power 105 FM/VH1’s “The Gossip Game”) and Sway Calloway (MTV, SiriusXM) kicked the night off with a video presentation recapping 135th’s recent work and clients.

TV personality/designer Angela Simmons took the stage to co-host the Beautiful Textures Upfront, which featured an announcement by Strength of Nature’s Global Marketing Director Charlene Dance of the Reversible Straightening Texture Manageability System – a revolutionary product that allows women with natural hair to go from curly/kinky to straight and back without harsh chemicals.

The Upfront closed with a hot performance by Atlantic Records recording artist Sevyn Streeter, who performed her hit songs “I Like It” and “It Won’t Stop.” The evening ended with the crowd dancing the night away to tunes spun by DJ Amanda Seales.
