New York Fashion Week: Rolando Santana


On Monday night Rolando Santana’s SS 2013 collection hit the runway. His collection featured various shades of blues and greens along with touches of coral. The collection featured very feminine pieces which can be expected from spring collections. As the models worked the runway the collection evolved from ready to wear to red carpet ready. Rolando also collaborated with Manolo Blanik who debuted two shoes on the runway.
The final walk showcased all the models walking the runway in the same dress but in different hues. A simple change in color showcased the beauty of a Rolando Santana dress.

Academy of Art University #nyfw show


On Friday I had the chance to attend the Academy of Art University Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week show. Lincoln center was a buzz with media, celebs, and fashion lovers waiting to catch a glimpse of the latest collections. The runway featured eight women’s wear collections and one men’s wear collection from recent graduates from the Academy of Art University. How exciting that must have been for them. The designers Wu Di, Amy Bond, Xiang Zhang, Deanna Pei-Ju Lo, Donghyuk Dan Kim, Farida Khan, Kate Y.K. Lee, Jeanette Au, and Jade Juanyu Liu each brought their best pieces to the runway. Each collection grabbed the audience eye. There were so many things to see, you had ivory cashmere wool from Wu Di, wool dresses from Amy Bond, taupe pleaded sweaters from Xiang Zhang, black leather from Deanna Pei-Ju, olive wool shirt from Donghyuk Dan Kim, various wool and silk combinations from Faridna Khan, a navy leather dress from Y.K.Lee, a deep sapphire mohair/metallic dress and coat from Jeanette Au, and quartz bonded microfiber/copper fur dress with a copper fur vest. Fabric, cut, and design were on the forefront of the runway last night. Each designer offered collections with looks that made you want to incorporate them into you wardrobe.

Kim Hicks Couture Preview


The preview for Kim Hicks couture line happened last night on the east side of New York. The event featured four looks that will be part of the bigger show to take place next Wednesday during New York Fashion Week. The host of the evening was celebrity stylist Derek Warburton. From the looks of the preview the fashion show on will be a hit. Spotted last night was Nets Basketball player Kris Humphries  (ex husband of Kim Kardashian) as you may know Kris recently switched public relations agencies. This maybe part of his new imagine campaign. Enjoy the pictures and TGIF.

Essence magazine thinks I have style


I met to do this post when it happened but it slipped my mind. While attending the Harlem’s Fashion Row event there were photographers all over the place snapping pictures of attendees and models. So one of the photographers comes to me and say he wants to take my picture. I clearly think he is joking but he is indeed serious. He lets me know that he’s with Essence Magazine and wants to take my picture for their street style piece.  To me this is cool so I oblige. Truth be told I pulled my outfit out of thin air so I’m glad someone liked it. You can check the link for the site here http://admin.photos.essence.com/galleries/street_style__hfr_and_pioneer_awards#970743

Funny coincidence is that I met Constance White EIC of Essence just a few days prior at the Emerge fashion show. Maybe she put in a good word for me? Enjoy your Monday people.
