Even though I had a rocky start on the first day of New York Fashion Week (missed two shows), it ended on such a positive note. I was impressed and blown away by the work of the eight designers, representing the top design schools in America, at the Supima Design Competition. The winner will receive a $10,000 prize. Here are some highlights from the show.
First, I would like to show you my view from front row. I was luckily bumped up before the show started. Across from me is Tadashi Shoji, the President of Supima – Jesse Curlee, Buxton Midyette, and Rachel Zoe + Rodger Berman!
And the winner is Kate Wilkoff from Pratt Institute. Her designs are below:
They also have branched into accessories. These studded bracelets are a must-have, especially in the purple. I received some leather goodies from them and can’t wait to start rocking them out!
To end the day and celebrate Fashion’s Night Out, I went to the Style Network‘s event at NBC Universal. There, I got a nice Essie manicure, nibble on turkey burgers and sipped blueberry spritzers. Oh, did I mention Jeannie Mai was there?! Love her.
P.S. I wasn’t able to take an outfit shot, boo! But, keep up with my fashion week wanderings on Twitter :)
