Recap: AKOO Presents The Heads of State Dinner and Cocktail Reception

by Naseya Minor


Akoo Clothing kicked off Howard’s Homecoming weekend by assembling the best of D.C. for their Heads of State private dinner and cocktail reception. The cocktail reception was held at Josephine Butler Parks Center.

Throughout the historic mansion Akoo mannequins were styled in their latest fall collection by D.C. fashion blogger Devon of Fashion Citizen.


The hand rolled cigar stations seemed to be a hit among the dapper gentleman.

The crowd was incredibly stylish and I spotted some fab attendees including Washington Wizards Forward Chris Singleton, photographer LaVan Anderson, Angel Elliot, Sunni from WPGC, and DC fashion blogger Krystin of Be Loud Be You.

Legendary DJ, D-Nice kept the party rocking with a balanced mix of old school and new hits. Between the music and free flowing cocktails provided by Grey Goose, the Heads of State party was the perfect prelude for an exciting homecoming weekend.
