As I write this, I just completed New York Fashion Week. I can’t believe how fast it went! While it is fresh in my mind, I wanted to recap Day 1 and all the amazingness that happened. First of all it rain, all day. Luckily it is the only rainy day of this week. Beyond that, I began the week with Pamella Roland. This is my second show with the designer, and I have loved each collection. The Spring Summer 2018 collection pairs very whimsical pieces (tulle and illusion dresses) with structured and luxurious numbers (feather capes, and wired corset dresses). The beading throughout is what stunned me the most.
So who attended the show? Well, I knew it was going to be a good day when I walked into the venue with Nigel Barker, the fame photographer and the original judge on American Next Top Model. I saw his ANTM castmate Miss J Alexander there as well. Models Olivia Culpa, Nadine Leopold, and Devon Windsor all sat front row right across from where I sat. Olympic gold medal Gymnast Aly Raisman and NFL sports caster Jamie Erdahl were also attended and happened to sit with Nigel Barker. It was a packed show at Pier 59 Studios, I am sure even more recognizable names in attendance that I didn’t even get to see.
After the show, I headed back to rest. I happened to be in excruciating pain that day, and I needed a moment before heading out again. I missed a favorite of mine, which is the Indonesian Fashion Gallery at the Indonesian Consulate on Fifth Avenue. They were having a makeup tutorial the day before their runway show. I’ve worked with IFG before and have always loved attending their tutorials. I learn something new every time.
After resting a bit and changing quickly, I heading back to the city for the launch of Anon Atelier with the host Damsel In Dior. I have been reading Jacey’s blog for awhile now, so it was incredible to meet her in person. The line is stunning, and very much up my isle. It is minimalistic and sleek lines. Looks very comfortable yet elegant. Congratulations Anon for launching during New York Fashion Week!
That is all for Day 1, stay tuned for Day two recap!
