NYFW: Manufacture New York Runway Show - FW ‘14

image

Oh, New York Fashion Week, how I’ve missed you so! To kick off the festivities this season, I attended an exciting new organization’s runway show, presenting designers Minnoji, Modu, and Mimi New York. Manufacture New York’s mission is to provide independent fashion designers with the resources and skills to streamline their process, making the most affordable, innovative, and sustainable option for both creators and consumers.

I was completely blown away by both the pieces and presentation of Minnoji. Here are my favorite pieces from their collection. Thanks so much to AMP3 Public Relations for including me in this special night!

Nolcha Fashion Week Preview Luncheon @ La Marina NYC

Considering I’m going to be missing NYFW in September (I’ll be traveling around Europe!), I was a kid in a candy store when I got an invitation from Ms. Kerry Bannigan herself inviting me to an intimate luncheon this afternoon at La Marina NYC. It was a beautiful atmosphere near the northern tip of Manhattan right on the Hudson River, and just far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to feel like we were on a real getaway. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Arthur Mandel, President of Nolcha Fashion Week. He’s definitely one of the coolest people I’ve met in the fashion industry thus far. When my group finally found our way to a table, he personally brought us over some e-cigs from Ono and even gave me my own Homanz clutch.

It was definitely the most fun I’ve had at a fashion gathering - Nolcha definitely knows how to party! Thanks so much to the amazing people who put it together!
