So a big thing happened . . . People Magazine used my video from the Kyle & Shahida debut show. Special thanks to the IG hubby for taking the video. I was so honored to be featured and attend the show. It was televised for the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, scheduled to air in 2020. It was actually my favorite fashion show during NYFW this season. The pieces were very wearable. View the full NYFW article here. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
I am so grateful to have my blog and viewers who enjoy reading my story.
I have grown so much from when I was aspiring to work in fashion six years ago to where I am now.
Thank you all for making this happen.

The following day I attended more shows including the Global Fashion Collective. This collective featured designers including Jessica Chang Studio. Jessica's collection was right up my ally with flow dresses that highlight the female figure. My favorite was the brown dress pictures above.
XUNRUO is another designer a part of the Global Fashion Collective debuting their SS20 collection during NYFW. Along with sheer accents, the collection was focused on animal drawings. This highlighted the animal print trend in a very clever and artistic way.
I finally got to meet up with some familiar faces at the Kimimi Swimwear show. This collection featured vibrant fabrics and bikini styles I have never seen before. My favorite was this one-piece accented in a mesh plunging neckline with jagged edges. Samantha (Page Six) and Erica (The Late Show) are my Rhody friends that made it big in the big apple. So proud of them.
Every year my usual first NYFW stop is the Supima Design Competition. My favorite piece from the collection is by Isabel Hajian, a RISD graduate that focuses on fabric transformation through dying. Each student uses cotton for the competition and this fabric has a sheen that makes it hard to believe it is cotton! Truly amazing work. I also love the intricate sewing on the garment creating shape and volume. "Hajian’s Supima collection is inspired by kids playing dress-up as a means of expression. With an emphasis on color and form, Hajian lets the fabrics speak to her so she can bring them to life through her designs." After the Supima Design Competition I mingled with a few people at the afterparty.
Thursdays are known to be the big “opening” night for NYFW filled with afterparties and celebrity appearances. The Daily Front Row Media Awards afterparty was at Up & Down. Such a fun time. The 2019 Fashion Media Awards honored the best of the best in this crazy, fabulous industry of ours — from Kate Moss and Emily Ratajkowski to Zendaya and Halima Aden.
During fashion week I stopped by Coffee 'n Clothes for a quick pick me up. I get so exhausted running from show to show.
A pit stop in-between shows during fashion week was the Maybelline House interactive pop-up. There you could create your own lipstick. They were also gifting eyeshadow palettes and liquid lipsticks.
Son Jung Wan lit up the room during fashion week. My favorite piece from the collection was the yellow striped dress. I love how it has a cinched in waist and accenting ruffles. Cascading ruffles has been a theme throughout Son Jung Wan's collections. The pink dress floral dress has metallic accents which is a modern update to the classic "spring floral". The metallic belt pulls the whole look together for the modern sophisticate.
Chiara Boni La Petite Robe giving us "cowgirl" vibes with the vibrant patterns and boots to match. The runway show featured fierce animal print and pattern dresses. My favorite look from the collection was the red paisley dress. The piece had a lot of personality on the runway.
