The Rest of My NYFW !

Saturday, September 18, 2010

The 4th day of NY Fashion Week, I attended the D'Angelo show at the Waldorf Astoria. The show was benefitting Fashion for Autism and guests may auction for artwork.

My friend Francisca got me a seat in 2nd row :) Before Edwing D'Angelo's collection, there were two other designers showing theirs. I unfortunately did not get the first designer's name, but I thought the collection was pretty bad anyway. The second, was beautiful! Luis Machicao designed beautiful Mad-Men/Audrey Hepburn inspired pieces - so classy and chic but some of the pieces seemed to touch a bit costume-y.
Then D'Angelo presented his, and Bria Murphy (Eddie Murphy's daughter) along with Sammy Sosa's daughter & Vanessa Simmons walked the runway. We walked away with giftbags, and I went to eat at Pop Diner after - BEST penne ala vodka I've ever tasted!
I had classes all day on Monday so I wasn't around and I skipped a presentation at night because I was so tired. Tuesday I was already exhausted & was busy working & I also skipped the Toni Francesc show, which I heard was amazing! (I suggest you check out the collection on Style.com :) ) On Wednesday, I had classes all day.

On the last day of Fashion Week, I visited the Andy & Debb presentation. This personally was one of my favorite collections I've seen. I'll let some of the pictures do the talking :)
After, I attended the Davidelfin show and was sitting in the 3rd row. The collection was interesting - his theme was "Tautology". According to the program it is, "repittion of a same thought expressed in different ways. The need of protection is the main concept to be used. Search of shelter, security and fastening. Unions, separations, displacements, twists, and grafts. Destroy and rebuild." Overall, I like a couple of pieces (mainly from the female outfits). However, I felt the collection looked like a mix of waiters/scuba divers/flight attendants. The outfits were well tailored though, but the one sleeved jackets seemed unpractical.

Below is a video I've uploaded onto Facebook of the finale walk.During my break, my friend & I visited the WWD presentation exhibit across the street at the David Rubenstein Atrium where 11 designers (Adam, Alexandre Birman, Dana Lorenz for Fenton/Fallon, Doo.Ri, Jason Wu, Kimberly Ovitz, Lyn Devon, Marchesa, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, and Thakoon) re-imagined iconic looks from the last century in honor of WWD's 100th anniversary.
My friend & I also sampled some amazing, healthy & all natural drinks from Organic Avenue across the street at Alice Tully Hall.At night, there was a CRAZY thunderstorm. I heard the rain pounding on the tents but I had no idea how intense it was until I was going home. There were traffic/train problems, roads closed, power outages, and tons of trees that fell. It took me about 2-3 hours to get home when it usually takes me less than an hour driving. So glad that my house has power and that no one I knew was hurt.

What a week! Went swing dancing last night (will be a separate post soon), but relaxing all weekend finally :)P.S. If you want to see more pictures, let me know! If not, I've posted them on my personal Facebook account - just let me know your email address so I can add you :)
