I’ve been to NYC several times, usually just for a few days, but this visit I got to go and really explore the city because I was here for an entire week I was not working the entire time. As a lover of fashion and a fast-paced city lifestyle, going to New York City during fashion week was a dream come true.
My first New York City fashion show during Mercedes-Benz fashion week that I went to was the #FashionForRelief show held by the amazing Naomi Campbell! Wow, she is such a powerful woman. Just her walk and presence embraces confidence and female empowerment! Her show was amazing and many celebrities walked such as Paris Hilton, Quincy, Kelly Osbourne, Michelle Rodriguez, Cassie, and many more. The supermodels who walked had garments on that were going be sold and auctioned off for Ebola research.
It was an amazing show and I had a lot of fun being in the audience for it! Before the show started, I had the opportunity to be backstage to meet some amazing people!
It was on Valentine’s Day by the way, and although I didn’t have a Valentine, this was better than that! I was reunited with Paris Hilton, (remember those Paris BFF days?) and it was so great to see her and chat with her and see her strut on the runway!
Backstage was chaotic but so much fun, if you check out my NYC Vlog on my YouTube Channel you will see how hectic it was and they were filming Fashion Police and doing so much press as well!
My outfits I had to kind of improvise because I felt like I wasn’t really prepared for fashion week. I wore a tan suede skirt I got from Eden Sky, a white bebe body suit on top, and a white bebe faux fur cropped jacket! My shoes are the Christian Louboutin Daffodils and I brought my chanel mini boy bag. It was extremely cold that night and snowing so pantyhose is a must and most people do have on big heavy coats!
It was such a fun day for me and I cannot wait to attend the next #MBFW! This time I’m bringing amazing gowns because it’s fashion week and I want to kill it even more! lol BTW NYFW > LAFW. New York KILLS it, in fashion!
