Cocktails and Couture New York Fashion Week Recap

This year Cocktail & Couture tried something a bit different, bringing a Personal Branding & Social Media panel into the mix to talk to up-and-coming bloggers on how to build their brand. Though I was anticipating the “turn up” I found myself learning some valuable information so heres the breakdown of the C&C branding portion.
The Panelist: Claire Sulmers – Freelance Fashion Writer and Creator/Editor of FashionBombDaily.com, Jennifer Walsh – Beauty Executive / Founder: The Beauty Bar, Behind The Brand Media, Jessica Goon – Senior Manager, Public Relations & Social Media, Avon & mark,Tracylee – Celebrity Manicurist and Sally Hansen Nail Ambassador, JasFly – Writer/Multimedia Personality, Charlene Dance - Global Marketing Director of Strength of Nature
5 Things I Learned:
Stay true to yourself: Being somebody else is doing a disservice to yourself and stops people from getting to know the real you
If your interested in working with a brand introduce yourself, cover them on your blog, and build a relationship
Be smart on social media
Own what makes you unique because brands are always looking for the next unique voice
Learn to say “no” if a project doesn’t represent your brand then don’t be afraid to pass it up. Only do things that you want to reflect your voice.

New York Fashion Week Mathieu Mirano Recap

Mathieu Mirano’s Spring 2013 collection hit multiple ends of the spectrum of fashion from ready to wear to editorial. A navy chevron hem coat, navy leather shirt and Mikado trouser with calfskin embossed heels could have walked right out from tents and would have been attacked by street style photographers.

 

Great separates that came in a variety of material and a range of colors from an orange pleated leather jacket to red knit dress in red were wearable pieces that made attendees want to commence spring shopping now. The white sequined cape with multi-rainbow yoke featured in the collection was perfect for a W Magazine editorial and a green chiffon beetle gown that needs a red carpet moment.
