Some fashionistas show up to Fashion Week for the parties, shows, or the glam. I'm here for it all! Now that I have to two Fashion Weeks under my belt I've learned it's a marathon and keep my Starbucks nearby. Fashion Week is a remarkable time to meet like minded creatives and be inspired. This season not only did I attend one of the most iconic shows for our culture I met some beautiful people and we instantly connected!
It is invigorating to see so much expressive individuality and even more special to see their art come to life. I was able to witness this first hand at "The Bomb Fashion Show" founded by Claire Sulmers. Who's has been slaying the fashion scene for quite some time and has been a pioneer for brown girls in fashion everywhere. Her fashion show debuted twelve up and coming independent designers. This fashion show embodied community and love which was felt in the room all night.
There were guests in attendance from all over the US and it was beautiful to see us all connected through fashion. I left with my cup full. If you have attended NYFW, What are you waiting for?!
