Wish Performs at The Bebe Store in Soho!

18 Jul

 

I have become a huge fan of Wish. She is a rising star and was just signed with Jive Records. When I first heard the song “Feel Your Beat,” I fell in love with her sound. After Wish released her music video for Feel Your Beat, I fell in love with her look. Follow Wish on twitter @wishishere and check out her music video and live performance below:

The name implies ALL: EVENT HOARDER!!! This week was full of exciting events.



Earlier this week, the famous stylist, Ugo Mozie, celebrated his birthday in class. Dressed in fur, as often he is, Ugo made a simple entrance. The venue was great and the staff were attentive. We had a great time! HAPPY BIRTHDAY UGO!

OF COURSE THE WEEK COULDN’T END THERE! We stopped by Greenhouse for Fabolous’s BDAY shindig. We were able to meet up with the Sachika Twins, their assistant Barry, and Kandi among others. It was jam-packed outside and extremely hard to get in, but we were all able to get through thank God. And for those who can’t remember the night, here you go:

LONDON show ROOMS LAUNCH – Up Up and Away We Go!

22 Sep

The British Fashion Council (BFC) announced they would collaborate with thecorner.com and will act as the official online retail partner by creating the first exclusive online retail space called the LONDON show ROOMS. This space will act as a place for up and coming designers to show their stuff.

I think this initiative is great, in that it encourages emerging artists and designers to work harder at their craft and grants exposure to the industry in that regard. I wish all the designers luck! The 5 designers who the project will begin with are as follows:

So what does this mean for you, the consumer? Inspiration, if you’re into that type of thing and the ability to have a little bit more variety in your shopping experiences. Enjoy!

A Night At Nightwood

22 Sep

Design Downtown series at Nightwood in Brooklyn, NY. The place to be on the night of September 9th if you weren’t involved with other NY Fashion Week events, like Richie Rich’s show that night. Pascale Gatzen, an instructor at the Parsons College, was the host of the event.

Eric Han selected me to take part in this program as a model for his clothing line. His pieces had a touch of futurism in them. Nightwood was an excellent location for this event. There was a free wine and appetizers bar and I was able to network heavily that night. There were models, artists, designers, photographers, onlookers,  and fashion instructors and student alike. I wore Eric’s clothing all night as I made my way around the room. An estimated 100 or more people showed up. I enjoyed meeting everyone there and hope to hear about another one of these events soon!

The list of designers:

MBFW 2010 – Eva Minge

16 Sep

The name of the line? SOLIDARITY. Eva Minge delivered just that. Her line was consistent and solid. This was the first time Eva Minge presented her work during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. Her dĂ©but spoke volumes. Eva Minge’s message is “freedom and solidarity is fashion.” Simple message, powerful portrayal through her work.

Eva Minge’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection reminded me of an 80’s inspired theme. The browns used were warm and their tones were beautiful. A lot of the looks were ready to wear. I enjoyed all the models’ faces. This collection was well done!

MBFW 2010 – Gottex

16 Sep

Gottex was an extravagant affair. The models were all gorgeous. The swim wear was equally intricate and beautiful. According to designer Molly Grad, “the collection celebrates women. It’s a fusion of technology and Luxury.”

I enjoyed the bright printed and chiffon capes. I also liked the bikinis that accentuated the shape of the models. There were a total of 44 looks. I think adding the belts to some of the swimsuits was simple, yet genius. Take a look at some looks I captured!
