Some take-aways from the event:

* Caftans are indeed VERY chic, thanks to Houston designer- Carla Christoph.

* Theresa Roemer (you may have heard of her ridiculously large three-story closet) showcased her namesake fashion brand. The clothing is manufactured by David Peck. She was also selling her brand of candles and signature truffles.

* The HERMES tray, faux fur vests and other curious assortments at Laurier Blanc.

* Sampling the ‘Sun A’ juice at the Big & Juicy Juice Bar/ Big Yoga booth.

* Wanting to show my California pride when I saw the California earrings at the Space Montrose booth.

* It was lovely meeting Travis and the guys behind Manready Mercantile. So hospitable! Loved that everything they offer is made in the USA. Oh and gentlemen, take note: one of their unique offerings are the ‘Beard and Mustache Treatments.’

* Finally seeing the Manoosh scarves in person. Yep, they are pretty amaze!

* The TREENG by New Living wooden statement rings… a MUST for 2015!

The whole pop-up shopping experience was just wonderful. It was nice seeing the smaller and local businesses getting the attention they deserve…and all under one roof.

Kudos to CultureMap and Lexus! Huge thanks to all the vendors and the CultureMap gals that were at the entrance, handing out warm welcomes to guests as they arrived. Tunes by DJ Bizonee.

Mark and Estel – NYFW September 2014

Los Angeles based ‘Fashion and Music Duo’- Mark and Estel showcased their Spring/Summer 2015 collection- “The Malibu Anthem” yesterday to a large crowd of eager fashionistas. The California casual collection had their signature rocker edge. There seemed to be a strict black and white color palette with specks of color here-and-there. The collection was infused with soft and flowy 100% cotton (found in t-shirts, sweatpants and denim) fabrics. The fabric was then treated to resemble silk, leather, wool and metal. Silhouettes were simple and sophisticated, ranging from easy breezy maxi dresses, blouses, tank tops to more heavier items like coats, mini skirts and pants. The finale ended with designers- Mark Tango and Estel Day rocking out to their self-written song and ended with “We love fashion…You are fashion… We love you!” What a great way to end my first NYFW show!
