The energy on the streets of New York is heavily felt during Fashion Week. The amazing fashion talents that we have showcasing their fabulous designs influences this unreal aurora. Yesterday while I was walking around the Lincoln Center, I felt as if I was a midget walking on the catwalk. Everyone was super tall and thin. The colors were bright and shining. I was in heaven, just like any fashionista would be!
During this event I got to visit Monika Chiang’s showcase, which was absolutely stunning, as you will note from the pictures I posted. The deep green silks that will make any woman’s skin glow and the chic designs, which are classy, but sexy that can be worn on a daily basis, was truly a great success. This exhibit was one of my favorites.
After Chiang’s Exhibit, I followed one of the funkiest designers I met, Andre Benton, to the ARISE MAGAZINE SHOW that showcased African Icons. During this show I was honored to see a few fashion lines by individuals such as Tiffany Amber , Tsemaye Binitie, Maki Oh, Gavin Rajah and the only and only Ozwald Boateng. Some of you may not know who Mr. Boeteng is, however I would like to clarify this… he is a fashion guru. He dresses A-listers for the Oscars.
The show was composed of full range of styles ranging from couture to daily wear to sexy little nothings. Every time each designer’s models walked the final run, you can tell the onlookers seemed to move to the end of their seats because the designs were just that good. I can honestly say that I love love love the direction that fashion is progressing. Now I just hope that all of the color and style be incorporated into the legal industry. I am tired of wearing BLACK!
