Alyssa: Hey girls!
Emily: Hello!! What’d you get up to today?
Alyssa: It’s so bad but every time someone asks me that I have to look at my calendar. I’m losing my mind. Hopefully not really. Hold please. Where were you today?
Sara: Today has been insane. Honestly these are the moments I remember why I love fashion. There is a frenetic energy in this industry that is essentially inimitable. The people, their creativity is truly one-of-a-kind. I’m writing to you guys from Queen of the Night at the Paramount Hotel which is insane. We just cleared out table by THROWING dishes across a room. We are here for the new Noble collection by William Rast. It is a huge acrobatics show. The woman next to me is a horse vet and has been here before. She is showing me the ropes. It’s very interactive. We were fed short rib and wine and grapes. It’s an acrobatics show. The seats are upholstered in leopard velvet.
It was also the last day of Linda Honan’s FFF at the Highline hotel. I dropped by Mary Helen Bowers’ Ballet Beautiful class. So that obviously necessitated a trip back to the Zappos braid bar and this time I got pics! #obsessed
Emily: Cute! I was at Alejandro Ingelmo’s presentation at Robert Miller gallery–the shoes were beautiful and it was awesome having the event at a gallery.
Alyssa: Ooh, a little art and fashion. Who was showing?
Emily: Peter Sacks. The shoes were so polished and it was cool to have them set against the backdrop of rough, texturized, modern art.
Alyssa: So cool. I started out with DKNY, which I love loved. Coolest shoes, kind of platform sneakers… great clothes that were sporty and street but chic. Styling was great. Totally a celebration of New York and real New Yorkers. Basically I want it all.
And then I spent some time with the dudes today… Mark McNairy then the men’s presentations at Milk. Mark McNairy was so fun. Everyone (models included) had a beer in hand, and Travi$ Scott opened and closed the show. Kid is energetic. There was also a shirt that read: M*A*S*H Potatoes — I mean… Fun vibes at McNasty.
Sara: That’s funny — I raced to William Rast from the tents where I saw Nanette Lepore. I was there with actress Peyton List who is just the best. (More on her later). She sat with the cast of Orange is the New Black in the front row. And then with Carmen Electra in the MBFW lounge.
Nanette’s final model was her daughter, Violet, who drew huge cheers from the crowd. The finale was a spectacular dance party/conga line led by Nanette and Violet. The models looked like they were having so much fun!!
Alyssa: Love a good model dance party. Everyone was having fun today, including the boys at Pyer Moss, who paused mid-presentation for the all important #selfie. Usher was there… if only we’d gotten him to dance, too.
Sara: I did not have my dancing shoes on today. My feet are killing me–I put on 6 inch heels to hang out with Peyton who still towered over me 🙂
We had so much fun! She wore a blue suit by Nanette Lepore and looked unbelievable.
Emily: I feel you on the foot pain (glamorous), I’ve sworn off them for the remainder of fashion week. Pretty sure the only people wearing heels have drivers. That or flip flops in their purse.
Alyssa: Today at Eckhaus Latta I saw a girl carrying Timbs in clear plastic bag, the kind I use to organize stuff in my styling kit. Not so chic… but practical? Ooh and our girl Hari Nef was there, modeling in the show. Hari was in Hood By Air before that, too. BlackBook on the runway, bbs!
