If you’ve been following along with my blog posts, you may have noticed the one from 2013 where I wrote about my fabulous experience I had in New York for Fashion Week.
Well, here’s post numero dos – New York Fashion Week 2014!
I knew coming into the city I wanted to see the shows (a few rows closer this time around), network, and utilize as much time as possible to put it towards my styling business.
Originally I wanted to do a lot of exploring in the city, however I was given a sick internship opportunity that I could not pass up so I decided to pursue that. I also attended a few fashion shows.
My latest post elaborates more on the actual internship I worked on with a very talented creative director as well as a designer who makes sunglasses and attire for celebrities.

And now to the shows!!!
Even though my press credentials were not approved for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I still received approval from another venue –Launch NYC.
Throughout the week I attended several shows and took as many pictures possible using my Canon Rebel T3 Camera.
Minnoji Fall/Winter 2014 Collection
At only the age of 17, Designer, Milena Encheva started designing her own clothes. After moving to NYC and graduating FIT she gained experience working at design houses including Calvin Klein, Ali Ro, and Morado Blue, she finally opened up her own line in 2012 – Minnoji.
This collection was one of my favorites. The combination of leather and wool brought a unique twist to the runway. I also really loved the exquisite detailing of the skirts. Her story and success was such a huge inspiration to me.

Carrie Hammer Fall/Winter 2014 Collection
We’re all very used to seeing the same types of models on runway shows. Some of us are almost brainwashed to think that only thin and tall people can walk the walk and wear the clothes at the same time. Designer, Carrie Hammer breaks that mold by designing clothing for all sizes at affordable prices. Her designs cater to the “underserved professional woman”.
Her story and personal success was also very moving and inspirational to me.

My entire week for NYFW has been one HUGE experience for me that I have truly treasured since.
Stay tuned for more fashion fun…my next post will showcase Street Style photos!
Stay fashionable, lovelies
