In fashion, I have come to learn that there will ALWAYS be a last minute crunch to make sure everything is perfect.  Today was no different as I was in final fittings for Joy Cioci’s show, pairing each model with proper footwear and accessories minutes prior to them strutting down the catwalk.  With a giant sigh of relief, my work was done, and the show turned out amazingly.  That’s the funny thing about fashion, it always seems to work out in the final seconds.  I’m totally obsessed with the Patricia Underwood hats we decided to use; they are sophisticated, yet understated sexy, exactly like Joy’s collection.

After the show, I dashed to Fashion Next, ELLE’s partnership with Savannah College of Art and Design, which was full of raw and unexposed talent.  I am so excited to see what the next generation of designers will produce, the ones following Alex Wang, Thakoon, and Richard Chai.  They have a fresh and inventive way at looking at clothing which pleasantly surprises me every time I view their collections.  After the show, I met up with some of my favorite industry folk from ELLE for a drink to cap off another great day at NYFW.  Until tomorrow….
