The other day I sat down with the Senior VP of Diane Von Furstenberg to ask her a few things about the S/S 2011 collection- aaahhh-maaazinggggg! Being as she had literally just gotten back from Milan about 4 hours prior, she had some great input on the direction DVF was taking for the upcoming seasons. I LOVE that they were able to pull away from being a entirely print-based collection and add a few simple pieces into the mix. Mind you, DVF is definitely channeling her inner Greek Goddess Diva circa 1970, but it is a lot easier to catch pieces that are more subdued in S/S 2011 than in years prior. Overall: Success!
Last week I was able to get a guest pass into the ENK & Coterie Trade Show held at the Javits Center- I. Died. So many amazing brands, designers, fashionistas, and tons of free goodies! Of course I would be camera-less, so I had to suffice with terrible quality BlackBerry pictures- Enjoy!
One of my freebees, a Will Leather Goods Canvas Carry-on. Perfect for me to schlep my life around in!
At the Chictopia event hosted at Juicy this past Sunday, I met an AMAZING upcoming designer, Alyssa Nicole! Only 19 and a student at San Fransisco's FIDM, her collections are gorgeous and incredibly inspiring! Check her out here!
Here she is with her models after Chictopia's Designer Showcase!
