Every year hundreds of designer submissions are reviewed by an elite designer committee and this year’s 5 AMAZING designers chosen to unveil their newest collections to retail buyers, fashion editors, and fashion influencers are;
Hosted by Carissa Rosario and Justiin Davis, this was such an amazing show to attend – to feel the energy and to see the hard work of emerging designers all come together for one night on the runway during NY Fashion Week – definitely one of my favorites! Each designer had something for me to fall in love with, and I had the opportunity to hit the red carpet to meet the designers, models, and some of the honored guests.

Getting Ready For Fashion Week in NYC

Here’s a sneak peak into my week :)

I’ll be kicking of New York Fashion Week (NYFW) with the launch of Midtown’s newest luxury addition, LASIO STUDIOS.
After all, going to the salon is one of my all time favorite bi-weekly rituals and I absolutely LOVE their Hypersilk Advanced Serum and Hypersilk Revitalizing Mask!. They will be celebrating their move from the East Village to their new Midtown location, 39 West 38th Street, NYC with an exclusive red carpet grand opening.

jlehsik Fall 2013 Fashion Presentation Runway Show
Always taking its vision a step further, jlehsiek takes inspiration from the 18th Century European ‘salon,’ for their 2013 show. Commonly associated with French literary and philosophical movements of the 17th and 18th centuries, salons would feature refined discussions about popular culture, literature and philosophy.  Salons also served as schools of higher learning for French women of the era, as many were not seeking schooling to build toward careers; these environments provided an opportunity for women of class to demonstrate their intellectual prowess and to learn from one another. Jlehsiek, will reconstruct the concept of a modern day salon within the context of Caribbean lifestyle and architecture. In addition to a breath-taking collection by jlehsiek, guests will be privy to images of Trinidad and Tobago folklore, poetry, stories, and fashion influences to celebrate the rise of the independent nation of Trinidad and Tobago, the nation of origin for designer Keishel Williams.  For a peek at selected looks from past collections, visit www.jlehsiek.com.
