Hautebox III Featuring Lotta Stensson

After a very successful Hautebox I & Hautebox II DNA is proud to invite you to Hautebox III coming August 17th, 2013.  Hautebox has grown larger then our studio doors can handle and thus we have moved it to a private estate in the hills of Montecito.  It will surely a night you don’t want to miss as the worlds of couture fashion and art combine to create a sultry mix of indulgence that only Santa Barbara can claim fame to.   You can purchase tickets to this event here.  Read more after the jump.

 The event is being held in benefit of Youth Interactive non-profit & to help aid them in continued success of their mission of empowering youth with the spirit of entrepreneurship.  DNA has worked closely with Youth Interactive over the past 7 months.  Offering mentorship and guidance to young aspiring entrepreneurs at their location in the Funk Zone every week.
