Last week we previewed the brilliant cover of SWERV's Spring 2013 issue. The "Ballroom Couture" editorial was lensed by celebrity and fashion photographer deluxe Mike Ruiz. The issue features the "legends and icons" of New York City's past, present and future ballroom community.
The launch party was held last Thursday at Splash NYC. The attendees included the Legendary Rayceen Pendavis—who is on the cover—the Legendary Leiomy Prodigy, SWERV Publisher Jamil Fletcher, Demarco Majors, Roxxy Evisu, No Shade's David Brandyn, fashion designer Marco Hall, DBQ Publisher David Bridgeforth and many others.
