I know it’s been silent on our end for a few days and that’s only due to the whirlwind that was caused by the blizzard. Megan was able to take a train and get to New York earlier in the week and after dealing with canceled flights and a ton of annoyed customer service reps, I was able to snag a seat on a Thursday morning flight and make my way up with moments to spare. I mean Thursday was the first day of New York’s Fashion Week and I couldn’t let a pesky little thing like a blizzard stand between me and Bryant Park!
Meg, who works for the team at Ogilvy PR that puts on the infamous The Heart Truth Red Dress show, was busy working behind the scenes for that night’s show, so I checked into my hotel and had a total Carrie Bradshaw moment. Me and a fabulous cocktail sitting in total bliss at the bar. After all the rush it was so great to take a moment to soak it up, then it was all about meeting up with friends and heading to the tent!
For those of you not familiar with it, the Red Dress show is a collection of ahh-mazing red dresses crafted each year by designers like Michael Kors and then modeled by celebrities, all wanting to spread awareness about heart disease in women. Due to the all the fabulous celebs and just a general spirit of celebration, it’s a really fun, unique show and it was great to be able to witness it first hand. Here are some of my pics! Everyone from Heidi Klum to Kim Kardashian and Joan Collins strutted their stuff looking divine!
So, that was the kick-off for my first NYFW. More to come as the week goes on and better pics as we are able to take a deep breath and edit through them. Ciao!
