New York Fashion Week Plus Recap

Hey y’all!

So, before my internet went all over the place, I had a chance to see some presentations during New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

No, notย thoseย shows (although I’m working on it!) This was a different set of presentations, for plus size fashion. Hence the fancy name: NYFW+.

You already know how here I was for it! ๐Ÿ˜€

So, the shows I went to were different. It wasn’t like your standard runway show. The models walked out, of course, but instead of a strut, they stood and posed. Admittedly, I was a little confused, but it was also pretty cool, because as you went to take pictures, the models would give you your own pose.

So fancy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I know y’all came for the fashion. Let’s get to it!

First up: Eula Taylor of Twelve26.

This was my favorite look from this collection. Isn’t that just..me?

The accessories she used were fabulous as well. All are by iLLASPARKZ:

I even loved the designer’s personal style (that’s her on the left.) Those are sequined harem pants!

And finally: Marco Hall. His collection was my favorite of the night!

Uptown Fashion Week: The Recap!

So, last Thursday, I had the opportunity to attend one of 4 fashion shows hosted at Uptown Fashion Week. There was a plus size show I ended up missing because it was too far away ( ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) but I did get to see the huge 11 designer extravaganza. Super cool and excited.

One of the best parts was that all of the designers were Latino. I love the idea of inclusivity in fashion, and that extends to both the models (which were diverse) and the designers.

If I had to have a quibble with this show (and I might add, this is the first time I’ve had to attend UFW) is that if it’s going to be that many designers, it should a) start on time and b) have snacks.

Just some constructive criticism. ๐Ÿ™‚

The showings from each designer were beautiful. Without further ado: Enjoy the fashion!

A note here about the next pic and video: the designer sent out the models like this:

And then, this happened:

Super cool, right? Totally unexpected, and the clothes were gorgeous. Also, here’s the final collection that had that awesome intro I showed you yesterday:

Beautiful!

Outside of the minor quibbles, it was a lovely showing, and I had a great time!

Uptown Fashion Week Recap: Sneak Peek!

Hey lovelies!

So, I’ve been in the bed sleeping off my cold.

I hate being sick. I smell like the medicine cabinet and sound like I’ve been gargling gravel.

๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyhow, I’m still sorting through pictures. I attended one of the shows for Uptown Fashion week last week, and I wanted to share this video I took of the last designer of the night. SO beautiful, and sparkly and lovely.

And that wasn’t even a part of the line being shown! Pretty hot, right?

See you tomorrow with the round-up!
