Fashion Month #1 in Review

Welp folks, today is the last day of September Fashion Month! This marks the first time I'm celebrating it as a fashion professional. By now you all should know that I give my honest opinion about things around here. So suffice it to say that I'm glad it's over.

Yep, I'm a fashion obsessed, fashion stylist and glad it's over, YES, it's true. I took on a personal challenge for myself to write a quality post with substance each and everyday. I'm totally not used to doing that. You see, writing is like working out. If you get out of shape after having a set workout routine it can be hard to get back into the swing of things. Same with writing, at least for me.

But I got through Fashion Month and had a blast nonetheless. I love writing, I love fashion, so it's all good in the long run. I learned a lot, saw a lot and connected with some awesome new people. Pumped up my writing muscles and learned a few things about myself in the process.

I'm happy that I challenged myself to reach a certain goal. I kept pressing on even when I began to falter with my posts, having built up a wicked backlog that I end up cutting though. I kept my eyes on the prize: adding to a collection of work, ideas and knowledge that I can share with everyone who might benefit from reading it.

Here are my 5 Fashion Month Highlights:

1. Attending my first runway show to see Meagan Ollari's debut Spring/Summer 2015 collection in the Designer Review show presented by Fashion Gallery New York Fashion Week.

2. Attending my first fashion presentation of Degen NYC's Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Pier 59 Studios.

3. Attending the Snowman NYC Fall/Winter 2014, Spring/Summer 2015 presentation + networking event for buyers and press presented by The Set NYC.

4. Attending The Morgan Magazine launch at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club.

5. Meeting a whole lot of new cool fashion folks!

I feel fortunate and blessed for these experiences.
