Wednesday, the 12th, Tim Cook announced the new iPhone 5. There was a lot of fervor around that bit of news which everyone and their mother knew was coming since the first spy-shot was leaked. However, the real party didn’t begin until Case-Mate, the company behind many of the more stylish iPhone and iPad cases, brought down the house with a performance by Common at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square 42nd Street New York.
Case-Mate does have an upcoming line of cases for the new iPhone 5 and you can have an advanced preview right here. Case-Mate is know for their more outlandish and style conscious cases. They have brilliant colors and interesting concepts and themes. Their unveiling was perfectly timed to fashion week as well here in the city.
At the party, there were elegant models around showing off the cases before Fergie and Common took to the stage. All were dressed really, really well and it really felt like we were at a very exclusive party scene. The look was from Cesar Galindo’s Spring 2013 CZAR collection. I also met some stunning ladies including Dr. Catrise Austin as well as Ms. Melyssa Ford. You can find my quickie interviews with them below. I’ve included an exclusive freestyle from Common during the performance below as well. Fergie MC’d the event, but didn’t sing – leaving the bulk of the entertainment to Common.
All in all, the night was a blast, and if you are getting an iPhone 5 or are in need of a case, I would definitely recommend Case-Mate as they really do seem to be the real deal. The event itself shows they are passionate about fashion and it shows in their designs.
