He ROCKED it!!!
Fashion Week has been a whirlwind of events, so I was happy to close out this season’s offerings by visiting one of my favorite shops, Noir et Blanc! This evening’s festivities were a showcase of designer Anni Kuan.
Perhaps best known for being First Lady of New York Chirlane McCray’s go to choice for high-profile events, Anni displayed her Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at the chic boutique. Selections included her signature coat (shown above) and dress collections, as well as new additions. Besides the coat (which also has quilted lining to take you from Fall to Winter) one of my favorite pieces was a shirt-dress made from vegan suede that felt like butter and draped perfectly!
Guests of the event were treated to wine, cheese and fruit to sweeten their shopping experience, while NEB owner Deborah Koenigsberger was on hand to assist shoppers in personalizing their dress choices with the boutique’s many accessory offerings.

“Orange Is the New Black” star Dascha Polanco took us all for surprise when she debuted her new grey-to-purple ombre hair color on the red carpet at Fashion Week!
Dascha told Latina Magazine, “You know, I like to take risks and play with my hair,” when asked on the carpet. “It’s the time to do it, so why not?”, Polanco took to her Instagram to ask her fans what they thought of her new ‘do.
What do you think?
Showcasing 6 emerging brands, FTP brought together influencers, tastemakers and fashionistas for a morning of fashion, art, home decor and innovative food. Creative bites were courtesy of Chef Jordan Andino and LushCakez and featured tasty fusions of flavors such as the chef’s candied bacon sushi, which he enthusiastically exclaimed had been a creation thought up that morning!
Guests were treated to a variety of champagne concoctions upon arrival and were encouraged to sample the savory assortments and pick from the cake pop tree. Lining the walls of the cozy loft space were designs by Vincetta, Ilana Kohn and more, with music pumping throughout the space courtesy of Soundwall.
Fashion that Pops was a welcome oasis to the fast-paced shows that define Fashion Week. I hope to see more events from the collaboration, and definitely will be using StoreFront in the future!
The return of summer temperatures did not stop the Glam as fashionistas and socialites convened for the second annual Plus Night Out!
Sponsored by Ashley Stuart, Ideel, Sidney’s Closet and more, PNO brought together designers, stylists, fashion’s elite and fashion enthusiasts for a night of networking, cocktails, fun and fashion. Guests were treated to signature sangrias upon arrival, where they were encouraged to take pictures on the red carpet, and gift bags from Sidney’s Closet awaited them once they were seated.
The evening continued with a showcase from houses like Qristyl Frazier Designs , Seven Curves by John Marc and Jill Alexander Designs. Capping off the evening’s excitement was the announcement of the PNO Model Search, Miss Wema Enofe! Miss Enofe wins a $500 prize as well as representation for the year.
All in all it was a fun time, and it was great seeing everyone from Full-Figured Fashion Week (which I TOTALLY cannot wait for)! Plus Night Out had a big turnout and put together a solid set of presentations. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year!
