A Complete Fashion Revolution on the West Coast - Join us for Moda 360: LA 2017

august 1, 2017, 3-9 pm, the new mart, los angeles

Moda 360: LA 2017 is going to be a special event! The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens is celebrating it's 50th anniversary, and Moda 360 is recognizing their dedication to conserving endangered species and habitats around the world. Taking place August 1, at the New Mart, Moda 360 will feature art and fashion exhibits, fashion videos and a program of film and fashion:

"A Model Life" : CE Jordan will perform her all-too-true tales of modeling in LA and NY in this journey down the runway of life. Wielding her signature combination of storytelling, music, dance, and an imaginative use of props, this versatile writer/performer will kick up her high heels in this model bash for the ageless. "A Model Life" performance: 3 pm (seating begins at 2:45)

"Strangers in a Book" Screening : Written by Pedram Navab and directed by Marc Rezvani, the film follows Sara in actress Vida Ghaffari's (The Mindy Project, Mind of Mencia) dramatic debut, a hip and melancholic Iranian-American, who finds a misplaced book in a café. Intrigued by its contents, but unable to find the owner, she decides to interview the people in the notebook to decipher the identity of the mysterious man. The strangers whom she meets, considered the dregs of society, tell Sara stories about the enigmatic owner of the book, who is considered both diabolical and kind. In her relentless pursuit of the ultimate stranger, Sara is thus plunged into the horror of the unknown, where reality merges with art, and where existence itself is questioned. The film has also received 7 nominations at the prestigiousFilm Festival in San Diego and won Best Guerrilla Film at the popular Action on Film (AOF) Festival in Monrovia, California and the noted Finow Film and Script Festival in Eberswalde, Germany.Vida Ghaffari will introduce the film. "Strangers in a Book" screening: 4pm (seating begins at 3:45)
