Lia Sophia- Red Carpet Collection

Whatever comes to mind when you think of Lia Sophia jewelry is probably way off base compared to the fabulousness of their newest red carpet collection.  I took a moment out from my frenzied NY Fashion Week schedule to stop by the Social Fashion Suite hosted by Lia Sophia and I fell in deep love with the Boudika collection designed by Dani Stahl. 

The collection runs the gamut from chunky on trend cuff bracelets made from lapis and black diamond crystals, to beautiful matte gold necklaces and rings in white resin pearls.

Each piece in the collection makes a unique statement and provides the perfect exclamation point to any fashionistas ensemble.

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.

NY Fashion Week- Live from Your Laptop

Fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders are all working themselves into a frenzy as they prepare to descend on New York City for the largest media event the city hosts- New York Fashion Week.   Most of the shows begin on September 8th which also marks the biggest and arguably the best Fashion Night out event.  Fashionistas will storm the city being plucked, made over, pampered, dined and of course there’s the shopping.   Not able to make it to the Big Apple to partake in the festivities? Don’t worry- just about every major city is hosting their own Fashion’s night out… check the full list of events http://www.fashionsnightout.com/fno/outside-nyc

 

You can also have the opportunity to view not only several of the digital (online) collections of your favorite designers- but also take a peek at what’s going on backstage before the shows.   Maybelline has teamed up with YouTube to bring you LiveRunway…. the Runway channel at www.youtube.com/liverunway. Beginning September 1st- you can log on to see behind the scenes of NYFW and the live shows will begin on September 8th.  Share your passion for fashion by using the hashtag #Liverunway in social media to join the conversation with other fashionistas/os!
