Next week is the beginning of New York Fashion Week. While the shows are primarily for those who work within the industry (buyers and press), there are ways to celebrate the excitement by attending New York Fashion Week events open to the public. These events often include entertainment, drinks, prizes, and a slew of good memories to share with friends before the end of summer. Honestly, sometimes these are way more fun to attend.
Here are a list of New York Fashion Week events open to the public.
I recently had the opportunity to board the Peace Boat along with a few renowned United Nations delegates. It was an incredibly moving experience that I wanted to share with all of you. The night was full of inspiration and messages from leaders around the world. Here is what the Peace Boat is currently doing to provided assistance and exciting news that was just announced.
Voices of rural women are being heard this month at the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62). The topics range from abuse against women, to labor laws, women in politics, giving the tools and support to empower women, and how to educate men in respecting women. I had the opportunity in talk with several world leaders on a more casual basis while listening to different panels. These are the topics, people, and organizations that stood out the most. Here is the future of Gender Equality In Rural Areas:
“We can all make a difference. We need to work hard. Believe in ourselves, never give up and take those opportunities for growth and change…”
Last week I attended the ECOSOC Youth Forum at the United Nations. ECOSOC stands for The Economic and Social Council at the UN where members from around the world come together to discuss innovative sustainability solutions, policy changes, and development goals.
The Youth Forum strives to “brings the voice of youth into the discussion of the Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 development agenda”- UN.org. One way in which they are striving to do this is through the 17 SDGs.
Earlier this month, I attended Cat Footwear “Go Boldly” event in their showroom. I knew of the brand prior to going but was unaware of the women’s shoes they produced. I was actually really impressed by the designs and aesthetics. I typically remembered Cat footwear being very industrial and masculine. While there are still some masculine components to the shoes, I can see how they used softer materials and hues to make it more feminine.
Today Google released the latest innovated technology that will soon hit the marketplace and our homes. I was invited as a Team Pixel Ambassador to attend the big announcement in person held at the Jazz Center in San Francisco. Here are all the details on what to expect next from Google.
To kick off the big announcement, I met the Google Team Pixel the night before at their San Francisco offices. I met other members from across the country and connected with familiar Pixel users.
I wanted to take a minute to share my absolute condolence to those impacted by the natural disasters in both Mexico City and Puerto Rico. I have met the most incredible people and have loved ones from both locations. My heart goes out to everyone who is suffering. Our world needs our help.
It is finally starting to feel like Summer here in the city! The warm weather has arrived, and what better way to celebrate than with some new shoes!
I recently attended the Sebago Fall & Winter 2017 Press Preview that took place close to Carnegie Hall. It is one of my favorite areas of the city, chock full of history. The music hall has housed some of the most incredible musicians of our time, and for many years Bill Cunningham resided upstairs. For that reason alone, I simply love the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood.
Tuesday, May 30th I attended the US launch of the brand Kimoa. It was held at the Rivington Hotel’s S’Zen Lounge in the lower east side. The clothing company is styled after Southern California and carried an easy-going beach vibe. There were screen printed tees, sweatshirts, and dresses for women. There were board shorts, tanks, tees for men. The fabrics were super soft and some laser burned for effect. The collection also includes surfboards, skateboards, and a few accessories. In fact, a surfboard displayed the sunglasses and hat collections.
Fernando Alonso, formula one race car driver and 2017 Indy 500 rookie of the year, was there to share the collection with New York City. He spoke shortly and presented a film that not only showcased the clothing brand but also the meaning behind it. #NeverSurrender. The video shared the important journey we all face, which is face challenges, experience the best of times, and come out on top.
I personally love the sunglasses. I received a pair from the event and have been wearing them ever since. Already, I’ve received compliments, looks, and fun smiles from all age groups because of these sunglasses. They are lightweight and very reflective, I never have to squint even on the brightest of days. If this represents the rest of the collection’s quality and style, Kimoa has a very bright future ahead of it. You can shop the collection now, here!
I am a 90s kid, so this particular event, the launch of 90s Forever pop-up shop really spoke to me. I wasn’t sure what to expect since this was my first time at one of Spark Pretty’s pop-up stores. All I knew was, it is located on my favorite street in the East Village and 90s clothing were involved.
My last visit to the United Nations was incredibly impactful. I was invited to the Youth Marketplace on Social Innovations for Health & Wellbeing event. The morning panel was hosted at the United Nations by Every Women Every Child and in partnership with the Office of the President of the General Assembly. SDG Media Zone supported the conference and invited me to cover the important discussion on sustainability and gender equality. I was introduced to two organizations that really spoke to me and my interested in Gender Equality and Sustainable Living. Last week, I shared about She’s The First. Today I want to mention the powerful way WHYFARM is changing sustainable agriculture.
Two weeks ago, I was invited to the Youth Marketplace on Social Innovations for Health & Wellbeing event. The morning panel was hosted at the United Nations by Every Women Every Child and in partnership with the Office of the President of the General Assembly. SDG Media Zone supported the conference and invited me to cover the important discussion on sustainability and gender equality. Both topics I am extremely passionate about. Two of the organizations that resonated the most were Why Farm It and She’s The First. Today, I want to introduce the latter and ways we can all get involved in providing gender equality in the classroom.
