NYFW: Day 1

Today marks the start of one of the best weeks in the year, New York Fashion Week. I went to the Tadashi Shoji show at Lincoln Center and the Big Park show near central park. Today I opted for a more minimal monochromatic look. I found this cocoon coat at +Urban Outfitters for only $20. I can’t wait to transition it to spring. I went for al black underneath for a more chic look. I layered for the gods since this coat isn’t the thickest. I went for a simple LBD that has the longest sleeves ever which is the best since I have a really long arms and its a really warm sweater material. I went to two events, pics will be posted soon.  Photographed by Jean Paul Dia

So Day 2 of NYFW got off to a late start with internet issues and outfit changes lol. As each day must start I headed to Lincoln Center. I’ve been taking Street Style photos for Obvious Magazine for this season’s shows. BTW I’m a fashion editor for Obvious Magazine. So Vandell and I went to do our daily duty and take ootd pictures of course. After we headed to grab a bit of lunch then it was off to our first event, Refinery 29 Country Club. Refinery 29 set up a mini golf course and refreshment station out in soho. I was all about this event. Each hole was inspired by a fashion designer. I took a photo at one of my favorite holes, Mettalic Mile inspired by Marc Jacobs. I won but I was no easy task, these holes were no joke. All in all it was a great time; fun game of golf, tea and music to refresh us from the morning. 

NYFW Day 1

I had a great first day of New York Fashion Week. Started off at Lincoln Center headed to our first show from there. As we were walking to the train we saw an Elle magazine event going on. We planned in popping in and out. Well I got caught up in makeup “touch ups” and the photobooth. Lord knows I love a photo booth lol. Anywho they were also doing hair touch ups, serve ring refreshments and refreshing everyone’s outfits with the Swash System. P&G and Whirlpool are behind the Swash System that dewrinkles, restores, preserves and refreshes your clothes. Let’s just saw I want one of these systems in my house. 
Next it was time to hit some shows. First up Thaddeus O’Neil, a beachy menswear collection featuring ikat prints and relaxed fits. Next was Big Park, my new favorite, the collection featured neoprene florals with mesh accents. The rooftop setting was a perfect way to showcase this modern collection. Next up the Yael and Revlon show. The show featured lovely fur coats and hair brought to you by Revlon. Mikel Luzea did a complete weave on stage full of big curls and my next hair color. 
Day 1 was a great start to New York Fashion Week stay tuned for Day 2.

Backstage at Victor de Souza

Wednesday I had the pleasure of attending the Victor de Souza show and being able to cover backstage as well. Backstage there was a frenzy of big hair and organza. The hair was sponsored by Mizani with Cesar Ramirez at the helm of the team and creator of these fierce blonde fros. Makeup Forever provided the makeup and lead makeup artist Dustin Lujan created a whimsical look with rose gold eyelashes, rosey cheeks and lids. The collection itself was nothing less than fabulous with impeccable detailing. The collection featured my favorite color chartreuse along with red, white and black, the color mixture was perfect and told a beautiful story. Limited edition earrings were provided by Mckenzie Liautaud to finish the look.
