We’re still on a Technicolor high after the Hari Mari & The Factory Show presented by House of Plates. Thanks to artist Marianne Newsom, the Deep Ellum warehouse was drenched in a kaleidoscope of color, providing a trippy backdrop for the Saturday night fashion and music fete.

Hip young partygoers dressed in skinny jeans, high heels and vintage threads swarmed the runway to catch glimpses of models sporting looks from TenOverSix and Original Octane — and Hari Mari flip flops, of course. Seated on the front row were Newsome and Factory Girl owner Heather Hayler Mayo, who had the best views of the floral prints, striped tops, tea-length skirts and, yes, a pink Lucite rain jacket.

It was a bit like a scene from HBO's Girls — only brighter and funkier. Besides, the evening's headliner has loftier goals than just party throwing. Local company Hari Mari gives $3 from each pair of flip flops sold to aid families whose children are battling cancer.

Eddie Fortuna, who was decked out in a hot pink blazer told us, "This is a great and interesting crowd. Everyone is having fun."

As post-show drinks flowed, scenesters clustered in corners and soaked in the sounds of Catamaran. Toward the end of the night, all eyes were on the charming and handsome DJ Chriis and the few cool kids left breaking it down on the dance floor. 

Spotted on this sexy scene were Nicole and Antone Schlesinger; Lorena Cuellar; Kaitlin May; Dakota Hale; Tyler Kerbyson; Daniel Otero; Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge; and Linda Snorina and Sinan Gurman, whom we spied earlier at Lee Park for A Day at the Races.
