New York may have been covered in snow, but that did not stop history from being made during Fashion Week! The city was white-hot with full-figured fabulosity as Ann Nahari and Of WHONDER debuted Plus fashion lines for Fall 2013.
First up, I had the pleasure of viewing Ann Nahari, a luxe collection with the modest in mind.
Proving you can stay true to your beliefs and be fashionable, Muslim designer Sumiyyah Rasheed’s showcase included rich colors, flattering silhouettes and daring prints.
Along with my pal Asia Mone’t (above), the display also included the lovely Christina Mendez and Crystal Flores, who I got to meet backstage after the show! In homage to the weather I chose all-white for the occasion:
The show was styled by Nailah Lymus of UNDERWRAPS (seen below, with Ann Nahari’s Sumiyyah Rasheed).
The celebration continued as I also got a chance to an exclusive peek at the luxury line Of WHONDER at ARENA, located at 135 West 41st Street in New York:
Guests were invited to eat, drink and mingle while viewing her 13-piece capsule collection of high-end Plus Wear, which was displayed gallery-style on mannequins in lieu of a live show. The evening’s entertainment was provided courtesy of celebrity guest DJ Valissa Yoe.
Of WHONDER paired wispy-light tops with structured bottoms and colorblocked knit pieces with strong colors and shiny accents. This line will undoubtably make its mark in the resort-wear community- I could see her dresses all over the Hamptons!
