Mieka Joi of Rich Girl Candy & Project Runways Samantha Black SS16 Runway Show

Designer Mieka Joi of Rich Girl Candy and Project Runways Samantha Black had a fashion show last night. Overall, the night was filled with a hand full of celebrity and friends, as well as fashion, of course. Fashion was just not on the runway, but everyone that attended the event was fashionably in style. Even the venue gave the show a more stylist look.

Heart & Noble SS16 Presentation

My last day of fashion week ended with a few designers. Amongst the few was, Heart & Noble. How many of you guys remember as a kid when you would create small images with beads and iron them to stay together. Well, Heart and Noble is the adult version. I must say, I like the adult version of the iron beat art. Especially, when you are greeted with an option of spiked coffee or vodka lemonade, and a yummy dairy-free/gluten-free frozen dessert from “ByBreanne.”

After speaking with the designer, Cri Gabriele, she stated that her collection this season was inspired by New Yorkers wanting to be fashionable, yet comfortable. That seems to be a thing that a lot of designers this season are seeking, “comfortability.” Well, Cri has definitely found the median between comfortable and fashionable.

Be sure to check out more of Heart & Noble collection at www.HeartandNoble.com. You can also find some more of ByBeanne tasty desserts at www.ByBeanne.com.Cri-quitvDSCN9876 DSCN9872 DSCN9868 DSCN9889 DSCN9885 DSCN9883 DSCN9876DSCN9897 DSCN9895DSCN9899

CARRIE HAMMER: #RoleModelsNotRunwayModels Fashion Show

I must say, this was one of the best shows I have been to in all the years I have been covering New York Fashion Week. Carrie Hammer did a great job with putting on a show that not only showed off her collection but inspired others to strive and make it to the top. Instead of having your typical models walk the runway, Carrie was innovative with having leading women in their careers strut their stuff not only showing off Carrie Hammer’s collection, but flaunting their job titles and accomplishment along with it. This show has sincerely inspired me to keep working hard to make it to that executive level that I am destine to be in, and purchase some of those jackets (What?!?, Those jackets were HOT!). See what I am talking about below.

Fashion Palette New York Kicks Off NY Fashion Week A Day Early

Fashion Palette kicked off NY Fashion Week a day early showcasing 10 Elite Australian Designers from their showroom (163 West 23RD Street Level 4 NY10011). From ready-to-wear to bridal wear many of these designers honestly have some unforgettable pieces.

Just when you thought the event was over, Fashion Palette had an amazing cocktail event at PHD – Dream Downtown, 355 West 16th Street NY 10011. With appetizing hors d’oeuvre, signature cocktails, and a build-yourself candy bar, they have by far kicked off and prepared me for an amazing week.

Just before my final exit, I had an opportunity to speak with one of the designers personally, Jade Rodrigues of Jatine. She is an Australian designer that was born and raised in South Africa. She initially started as an accountant, than later pursued her dream in becoming a fashion designer. Now, she is in New York showcasing her collection for the first time. Be sure to check out her website and collection at http://www.jatine.com.
