Aww...This is the last post of NYFW Diary SS'13 (sniff, sniff) So this is how it goes:
I was invited to Nolcha Fashion Week, and let me tell you more about this event: Nolcha is presented during Mercedes Fashion Week, and is a platform for new designer to showcase their collection. Every year, brands from all around the world; Turkey, Peru, Swaziland, Dubai, Thailand, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Los Angeles and the United Kingdom get the chance to present their ideas.
The event was very organized, their PR people were so nice to me (I even got front row seat.. yeay, so a special thanks to them!); it wasn't a big stage where you can have 500 attendees, only the right people in the fashion industry and lots of major celebrities like: Katrina Bowden (30 Rock), Bryan Greenberg (HBO's How To Make It In America), Eric Benet (Recording Artist), Gary Forbes (Houston Rockets), Stephane Lasme (Boston Celtics), Mya (Recording Artist), Zuzanna Szadkowksi (Gossip Girl) and more. Big plus! because right now that's what a new designer needs, a good crowd that would like to invest in their ideas.
My two favorite shows were: Angelys Balek and Gulschachereli. The first designer was colorful and fun, simple and clean silhouettes but with an amazing cut-out laser technique. Wonderful detail. The second one played a lot with the construction and deconstruction of the forms with minimal silhouettes. Feminine dresses and lots of pleats details. There was a neutral palette of color for almost the entire collection (beige, white, black), and quick touches of aquamarine on 2-3 garments. A very nice surprise!
Last but not least, an special page: My adventures with Sager from Glint Trends. We had so much fun; from partied with super models at the Tribeca Hotel to out private ride to Lincoln Center , thanks to The Cut. Priceless. (I stole the pictures from Sager's instagram .. follow her @sagpd)
As always, New York you never disappoint me. See you next fashion week! Xoxo
