NYFW Fall 2011—-Rebecca Minkoff


Hola peeps! Fashion Week is in full swing and so far all good.  There has been lots of fine tailoring that was shown at Jason Wu, to bold minimalism done by Stella McCartney and one of my personal faves—boho/chic at Rebecca Minkoff.  I just love her clothing and accessories.  The fabrics, textiles, and colors used in her collection is so right on for now and later when Fall rolls around.   My RM handbag is one of my prized possesession that I will never part with!  Check out the show and let me know if you heart it as much as I do.  Enjoy!

Do U Like—-Fashion Week Fab?


Hola peeps! I hope all is good.  Thursday kicks off New York Fashion Week–are you ready?  If you aren’t don’t worry SNC is here to cover it all.  We plan to make our rounds to events/shows so be sure to stay tuned in.  This is an ensemble that I would love to wear while sitting front row at any show.  To me it screams classy, fashion, chic—wear me!  So what do you think of “Fashion Week Fab”?  Do you like?

Brooklyn Fashion Week{end} Recap


Hola mi gentes!  Last night I attended the fab “I AM BROOKLYN” 2nd Edition Brooklyn Fashion Week {end} Spring/Summer 2011 show at Bedstuy Mansion (a lovely brownstone).  I was delighted when I got the invite because last year I wasn’t able to attend, so this year was a must go!  The event was hosted by Brooklyn Fashion and MacFue Fashion & Lifestyle Market (South Africa).  The theme of the night was “Living in America”, as all the designers were African born but currently living in America.  Silk, embroidery, sequins, linen and african prints all adorned the collections of the designers– Raif Atelier, Washington Roberts, and Lea Mono.  

The vibe of the evening was warm and very inviting, yet funky/fresh too!  Fashionable folk filled the room–young, old and in between.  I had a great time and I look forward to attending next year’s show; thank you for the invite.  To top the night off all proceeds donated or otherwise went to Brooklyn Style Foundation “STITCH FOR SUCCESS”  program and Paul Robeson Theater renovation drive.  

So let’s get to it— enjoy the pics!

Spring 2011 Queens Fashion Week Recap- Part I


Hola!  I must say I have been enjoying my little blogging break yet I did miss it too.  The events  of NYFW  has been exciting and very invigorating for me on a professional and personal level.  I have fallen in love all over again with fashion and all (good and bad) that comes with it.  Queens Fashion Week was icing on the cake, it is always great to see raw talent and they had plenty of it.  All of the upcoming designers represented the borough of Queens (except one that was from London).  
 
I have a ton of pics and I am debating on whether I should add another page to the blog as a photo gallery or set them up on YouTube as a video…do you guys have any suggestions?  In the meantime I hope that you enjoy the pics, since there are so many I will be separating them in parts these are from the first night.  Be sure to let me know what you think of QFW!

I’m Tickled Pink….


Hola!  I hope that your week is going great.  Well you know that I have been gearing up for fashion week with posts about FNO and such, I am delighted to say that I am going to a show!  I received an invite (confirmation) to attend the show for FARAI’s NYFW Spring 2011 CollectionFarai Simoyi is a  London-born Zimbabwean designer, she grew up in West Virginia and later moved to NYC where she currently resides.  This collection is a reflection of her emerging onto the American fashion scene.  Her designs are filled with colors, prints, and African inspired patterns.  On  Sunday evening I am expecting to have lots of fun, see some great designs, and mingle with the fashion crowd.  Until I am able to post pics check her site www.faraisimoyi.com and blog http://fashionfarai.wordpress.com/ for more info. 

**SN: My hair in this pic I think is a day old twist out.  They never really work on my hair as they always turn out frizzy and dry looking to me.  What do you think?  Any suggestions on how to get a great twist out?
