Fashion designer Astrella launches new MUSICAL T's at SLS Las Vegas

Kicking off 2015’s MAGIC season, on Monday night, August 17, fashion designer and daughter of legendary singer Donovan, Astrella, launched her newest designs of MUSICAL T’s with a little help from her celebrity friends at the SLS Las Vegas’ Foxtail Pool.  The evening kicked off with an art display of album cover art inspired by Astrella’s designs that were embellished by artists Miguel Paredes and Michael Turchin. Turchin’s husband Lance Bass greeted the crowd and introduced the artists. When asked what album he hadn’t yet worked on but would want to, Turchin answered “N’Sync’s No Strings Attached” – a nod to Bass’ boy band past.
