The Night Spa Treats Musical Women

With Madonna in town, J-LO performing last week on NBC’s Today Show and hype about all the alpha-women in the music industry, Christine Courtney Communications in conjunction with Girl’s Night Out, hosted  the first of their quarterly parties that will provide a creative environment for networking and celebrate the accomplishments of women in the music industry.

M-Girls Mobile Messaging, which is provided by Upoc, hosted a late-night girl jam at Spa on Wednesday, July 25th. With tantalizing offers of complimentary hair styling for a select few by Sean James (Fred Segal Beauty - LA), manicures by Polish Nail Emporium and martinis by Brilliant Vodka, the club was bouncing with a bevy of beautiful business women interested in celebrating Women in Music—the theme for the night. Even DJs Colette, Dayhota and Lady D of Chicago's leading female DJ team SuperJane Collective were on deck to spin luminous labels to women who knew how to shake their booty! Fashion house Fiorucci outfitted the DJs and hostesses with the mostesses Christine Courtney and Emily Twomey of Christine Courtney Communications, Jamie Roberts of Girl’s Night Out and Meg Ritschel of Sanctuary Records modeled Jill Platner Silver accessories during the event.

M:Girls even doled out fun gift bags with donations from cosmetics companies and the latest releases from several record labels. And if that wasn’t enough to entice young hipsters out, the do-gooder in all of us would have been pleased by the charitable aspects for this benefit. Malaak Compton-Rock’s (comedian Chris Rock's wife) non-profit organization Styleworks was the beneficiary of the evening. Styleworks offers free comprehensive makeovers, interview preparation and job-retention services to women transitioning from welfare to work. Its efforts are geared towards enhancing the personal appearance and self-esteem of women as they journey towards satisfying employment.

If you missed this all-out-girls-musical fete, never fear! There’ll be another in the next quarter! Sign up for the announcements on Upoc’s site!
