So, for Day 2 Show 1 of NNYFW (Naomi’s NYFW) my stylist/personal assistant (me lol) had provided me with an excellent itinerary. I have not joined the Uber cult yet, I was determined to catch cabs, mostly because I was by myself. In cabs, I always take a quick pic of the driver taxi license, cab number, send it to my hubs…Hopping into a random Uber drive personal car by myself seems unsafe, but that’s probably completely untrue lol.
So, my street style continued to be BCBGMaxazria, this time a skirt. The aim was to be dressy enough for front row without bringing too much attention to myself on the streets of NYC.
So I actually quickly got a cab, so I should have known, something was going to go wrong. The cab driver said that I was his first passenger, and he doesn’t know the city well. Warning sign ignored, I had to be on time for the show, I thought how hard could it be to get uptown. Apparently, extremely. Cab driver asked me if I had directions, so I asked for Siri’s help. We diligently followed my phone’s GPS (it was only on 35% too), until we came up to a large 4 block long festival on Avenue of the Americas, and the cab driver said there’s no hope of getting around it, so I should get out. Um, no. The GPS kept sending us on alternate routes leading right back to the festival. I was still like 15 blocks away. I went old school and used the map to get around it, using Houston and Broadway. Needless to say 35 minutes (should have be 10) and $37 later, I arrived at Metropolitan Pavilion to see Small Boutique Fashion Week.
The fashion show, unlike my cab experience did not disappoint. I have not mastered taking good or even decents pics with my ipHone, but I loved all of the designers and models were excellent. These were my favorite looks.
Uncommon ravish dezigns– love love love tulle
Lall Dass – amazing statement pieces; elegant gowns
Autumology – so sexy chic
the Amme Collection – loved the intricacy
Toi Box Couture – stunning
Intrendzick couture – look how intricate the flowers are!
VHanley – …definitely had the complete package, loved the attention to detail, excellent music selection (Beyonce who runs the world), and creatively appropriate use of 2 models at a time and despite displaying 2 pieces at the same time, the outfits enhanced each other. It was similar to Australian fashion shows I had seen recently online.
Obviously my pictures do not do it justice, and if a designer did not have a pic in my blog, it’s because the picture I took must have been horrible! This was a great show, I wished I could have seen all the shows that day!
Stay tuned, next post will include the rest of the day, here’s a hint…my shoes were made for walking…
