Fashion’s Night Out with Beautiful Textures

This year for Fashions Night Out (FNO) the folks over at Beautiful Textures hosted a soiree in honor of girls with kinks, coils and curls. The event aptly titled “curl couture” was an evening filled with beauty, bites and great fun for all that attended.  Clearly this was one of the hottest tickets for FNO  as evidenced by the bevy of natural-haired beauties who formed a line that stretched nearly a full block  in front of the uber-chic Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea.   Two of my favorite beauty bloggers- Afrobella and Tia Williams along with Teyanna Taylor  were hosts for the evening.

QVC to Launch Isaac Mizrahi’s Fabulous Fragrance during Fashion’s Night Out

New York Fashion Week kicks off this week and there are tons of events, designer presentations and of course one of my favorite NYFW events- Fashions Night Out!  This year marks the fourth anniversary of the shopping event which has grown significantly with celebrity appearances , discounted shopping and new product launches occurring nationwide. One of my favorite guilty shopping pleasures QVC will participate in Fashion Night Out by premiering the launch of designer Isaac Mizrahi’s new fragrance- Fabulous. Tune in on Thursday, September 6th  from 9pm- midnight for the unveiling of the fragrance, which combines the notes of citrus, musk and peony.

Fashion’s Night Out, Thursday, September 6th

Fashionista’s, editors and buyers from across the globe are all prepping for New York Fashion Week. From thoughtful wardrobe selections to finding the perfect shoes that will offer equal parts form and function, there is a tremendous amount of preparation that goes into attending NYFW. Though I am excited about all of the events that surround the premier fashion event of the season, I am probably more excited about Fashion’s Night Out!  There is so much going on across the country that it’s enough to make your head swim.   I have made participating in NY’s Fashion Night an annual tradition that I participate in with some of my nearest and dearest friends and this year is no exception.  Fashion’s Night Out takes place nationwide on Thursday, September 6th.

NY Fashion Week SS 2012- Take One

I am fortunate enough to live a commutable distance to NYC so I tend to “do” fashion week in two parts- The first half usually involves the ultimate fashionistas shopping experience – Fashions Night out and for this season, I also had an opportunity to meet some of the most amazing fashion and beauty bloggers during the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Conference. The conference focused on really taking a critical look at the business of blogging, the role of social media and my favorite panel hands down was an open forum with Elle Magazine’s Creative Director- Mr. Joe Zee.

Fashion’s Night Out
Fashion’s Night Out is so amazing; however there are so many activities around the city that you definitely need to be strategic around what events to participate in. When I saw that Solange Knowles was going to be hitting the wheels of steel at Lord and Taylor, they quickly jumped to the top of my list of places to hit for the evening.

The second half of my fashion week experience will come later this week when I have an opportunity to check out some emerging designers as well as the Arise Magazine’s presentation which highlights designers from Africa. Check back later this week for my coverage from those collections.
