Fashion, Fun & Friends!
I had a great time in New York for Fashion Week. As a former NYC resident, I look forward to any time I can spend hanging out at some of my old favorite spots in the city. . . especially with some of my favorite people.
This year, I had the pleasure of attending a show of fashion house Ruby Fang. Ruby Fang is an Haute Couture brand founded in Paris in 2012, by Lihua Fang. Read their brand manifesto here to get a feel for their sensibility.
At Ruby Fang, we believe that nothing is more wonderful than a girl who lives her life to the fullest. She creates, thrives, conquers and inspires. She is smartly sexy and exquisitely strong. She dresses up every day, because she sees life as a feast.
The fashion show was exquisite. You can see from the photos below that the Ruby Fang aesthetic for Fashion week was somewhere between ethereal and assassin. When color was used, it was bold colors. Blazers with gowns, open shoulders, and long flowing drapery that created impressive silhouettes ruled the runway.
Some other great stops included #MaybellineHouse and the Cotton’s Delivered Fashion Show from Cotton Inc. All fashions shown on the cotton-centric runway were immediately available on AMAZON after the show. What a totally interactive way of capturing excitement?
“The runway show was also a first-of-its-kind for Cotton during the iconic weeklong celebration of fashion. Amid the backdrop of fall’s latest styles, Cotton’s Fashion Delivered Runway Show connected today’s trendsetters with versatile cotton looks that they can get now via a “watch now, shop now” runway experience.”

OF COURSE, my favorite event of the week had much more sentimental value. I got to support my friend, Africa Miranda, at the launch event for her awesome new show. Africa and I have been friends for years. I absolutely love her AND getting to celebrate all of her wins in life and business. You can check out her show via Facebook Watch, here.
It was a fabulous week!
