A look into Spring | Suzi Chin Spring Collection

A look into Spring | Suzi Chin Spring 2011 Collection

10 Dec


On Thursday night I  attended the Suzi Chin Spring 2011 showcase on behalf of at the lovely Maggy Boutique on 7th ave. Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique provides style from women size 0-24. Suzi Chin collections usually features about 100 pieces so there is something for everyone. Suzi Chin works in 3 parts. #1 She designs for the present, #2 they fit for last season and #3 they start working on designs for next season. This work ethic is what keeps Suzi Chins designs fresh and trendy. Her designs are young yet sophisticated.

The evening went off without a hitch. There were some beautiful bridal items for the Spring 2011 collection that any bride would proud to wear. As well as brides maids outfits that won’t make you cringe.   There is so much attention to detail in each of the dress. Also each print/pattern is custom-made for Suzi Chin.

Great color option for the spring if you’re not a fan of bright colors

Live models showing off the season styles

Suzi Chin also carries plus sizes or “women sizes” and they are not just the larger versions of the petite dresses. Which is great. Each garment is made to accentuate the body.

The plus size women should feel very confident wearing Suzi Chin who  has dressed Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe and Mo’Nique.  Suzi Chin has been designing for 25 years, and from speaking with her you can tell she is still very much excited about her line. If you are into color there is something in the Spring 2011 for you. Even if you love your black there are at least 30 or so pieces that will satisfy your love of black.  The thing about Suzi Chin is she don’t just want to be the place you come to get your “special occasion dress” but where you can find an outfit for everyday of the week.  Suzi Chin is a lifestyle brand. This Spring 2011 is one that provides dresses that are comfortable, sexy and easy to wear. Who doesn’t like that?

You got the press pass, now what?


What do I do with these after the events are over

While trying to get organized over the last week. I noticed that I have a few of these press passes. The purpose of the press pass is to allow press access to certain areas. It allows you to conduct interviews, take pictures, even access backstage areas. Now some events you don’t get a press pass they just sign your name off the list and you are allowed entrance to the event. Having a press pass allows the press to be easily identifiable  during an event.

I don’t have nearly as many press passes as a season PR pro or other media personalities but I was just wondering what do I do with the passes now that the event is over? Are they redeemable for some type of PR points? Can you recycle them? I was just wondering. Having them allows me to remember the events that I have attended. I kind of review in  my head the good and bad of the events. It also serves as a reminder for when I do my own events. You learn a couple of do’s and don’t’s when you go through the process of getting a press pass.

For now I’ve decided to  hang my passes up on my door knob. I think this is safe place and is a daily reminder of where I’ve been. Where do you keep your press passes?

Launch of the Y Not Panty Line | Lingerie New York

The Seven Bar Foundation provides microfinance loans through luxury cause marketing partnerships and annual lingerie shows.  I attended this years  Lingerie New York show which happened to be the launch of the Y Not Panty Line created by Renata Black. She said she was inspired to create the line after a conversation with Deepak Chopra.
Aerial acrobatics were used to officially  launch this new line of panty. I think what a great idea. If you are able do acrobatics in this underwear wearing them throughout the day should be a breeze.
For this product lauch the concept was unique and it caused people to pay attention.
It also sparked in me the idea that you really need to think of your audience and what will grab their attention. I was reminded me that you have to be creative a take a little risk.

My fave part of the performance

“Empowering women on a g-string rather than a shoe-string.”

 On Thursday night my clients and I had the pleasure to attend a very unique charity at Cipriani’s in NYC. “Empowering women on a g-string rather than a shoe-string” is what Lingerie New York is all about. Armed with this we were able to cover this great event for the Seven Bar Foundation. What the foundation does is provide microloans to women business owners or those that want to start a business. A great cause don’t you think? One of the host  of (my client) celebrity hairstylist George Ortiz served as lead hair stylist  for the event and interviews on of the host Sophia Vergara. Seven Bar aims to do fundraiser for charity different hence the lingerie fashion show. Well not just a fashion show. They showcased some of the top couture and luxury lingerie. That night we were treated to the designs of Atsuko Kudo who does latex clothes and lingerie  and Carine Gilson. Also Hennessy Black sponsored the event and had an upcoming designer showcase her custom pieces which was modeled by Veronica Webb.

One thing that really stood out to me besides the fashion was that the press covering the event also included spanish speaking press. I  think this is due to the fact that  Renata Black the creator of  the event and co host Sofia Vergara are Columbian. Having the spanish speaking press there in my eyes was great. You get a target segment of the population, you expose them to an event  in their language which will reduce the risk of things getting lost translation, and they are able to cover the event in a way that their audience grasp. All and all this was a great event and they raised  much-needed funds to help these female business owners.
