There was a great range of lounges and networking events during NYFW. Check out my coverage of some of these lounges and events below:
The Nolcha Shows Fashion Lounge took place at the Bryant Park Hotel and featured a great showcase of brands. Cheryl Eve Acosta displayed her sculptural jewelry line that is wearable art. ALL BLACK FOOTWEAR highlighted its chic shoe line that includes slides, sneakers, and booties. Gallery of Indonesia showcased jewelry designed with metal and Indonesian water pearls and handbags made from handwoven fabric. SHOLDIT featured its multi-functional scarf that’s super soft. Neubryne showcased innovative shoes with hand-painted wooden heels. TRADE by Gina Lamorte displayed its handbag line with an ethical mission: 20% of profits go to an organization advocating against human trafficking and slavery. Lastly, ECRU New York highlighted its Dry Texture Spray, a hybrid of dry shampoo and hairspray, and provided guests with makeup touchups.
The Sanctuary of Wellness with Cygalle Healing Spa took place at the Rose Hill Rooftop. Guests enjoyed Gold Kinetic Facials that used organic and natural cleansers, masks, toners, moisturizers, and more. I love how all of the products smell great and leave your skin feeling and looking flawless. Guests also enjoyed mini manicures and Doctor Perricone Hydrogen Water which is a great source of energy.
Blogger and the Brand at the Manhanttan Penthouse was great for networking and learning. Mary Gui from Layers of Chic Blog, Christina Galbato from Bold Brunette, and Stephanie Abrams, Co-founder and CEO of SocialFly led a panel at the event. They talked about a range of topics from how they started their blogs, to what brands are looking for when they work with influencers. I loved their different stories and perspectives! Event sponsors included Ombre Digital, Adessa, Bartenura, Nineteenth Amendment, and When.
