A look into Spring | Suzi Chin Spring Collection

Read my review of 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?

GMHC Fashion Forward: Charity Event for AIDS awareness & prevention

Recently attended the Fashion Forward event which was a fundraiser for the GMHC

Of  course my client was there at the red carpet taking pictures and interviewing celebrities. Our host for this event was George Ortiz from Project Runway and the Rachel Ray show. The real reason behind the event wasn’t just to look good and have fun there was a cause attached to this fabulous event.


Host George Ortiz interviewing Radio Host turned talk show Host Wendy Williams.


The GMHC goal with Fashion Forward is to fight to the end of the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of all affected. By combining fashion into the mix you have an event that will attract people to come out and support. [GMHC stands for Gay Men’s Health Crisis] It also offered  the chance for the designer to showcase their lines for the season. The  money raised goes towards to fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic. What a great cause.  And no event in New York is complete without reality TV show crews I spotted crews from Real Housewives of New York to The Cake Boss. This  will provide Fashion Forward with even more exposure and help with their cause. Not only do you experience great fashion you are raising money for a good cause. There was also a silent auction throughout the evening as well as a live action.

The latest statistics of the global HIV and AIDS epidemic were published by UNAIDS in November 2009, and refer to the end of 2008.

Estimate Range
People living with HIV/AIDS in 2008 33.4 million 31.1-35.8 million
Adults living with HIV/AIDS in 2008 31.3 million 29.2-33.7 million
Women living with HIV/AIDS in 2008 15.7 million 14.2-17.2 million
Children living with HIV/AIDS in 2008 2.1 million 1.2-2.9 million
People newly infected with HIV in 2008 2.7 million 2.4-3.0 million
Children newly infected with HIV in 2008 0.43 million 0.24-0.61 million
AIDS deaths in 2008 2.0 million 1.7-2.4 million
Child AIDS deaths in 2008 0.28 million 0.15-0.41 million

More than 25 million people have died of AIDS since 1981.

Africa has over 14 million AIDS orphans.

At the end of 2008, women accounted for 50% of all adults living with HIV worldwide

In developing and transitional countries, 9.5 million people are in immediate need of life-saving AIDS drugs; of these, only 4 million(42%) are receiving the drugs.

Now we move on to the fashion

The Master of Ceremonies was Tim Gunn. The fashion show featured designs from Yigal Azrouel, Narciso Rodriguez, Richard Chai, Anna sui, Simon Spurr, and (my favorite) Diane von Furstenberg.

“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.

WEEN Awards… Event Rap-Up

On September 2nd the WEEN Awards took place at the beautiful Asia Society Museum. I was able to get my client media access to the WEEN Awards and since her website is catered to make up, fashion, entertainment as well as social issues this was a great event to attend since WEEN Awards catered to entertainment and philanthropy. The individuals honored at the awards are community leaders in their own right and use their “celebrity” for a greater good.

And a majority of the people in attendance have some community service that they are involved in. The WEEN Awards targeted a specific group of people who are the same group of people who my clients website caters too. By being there we were able to tab into that group and expose our brand further. The videos and other pictures will be up on my client site. I may post a few when they are up.

Here are some pictures from the event.
