What I love about presentations vs runways, is that the viewer get's to take their time to soak in each look & really appreciate the design. Here are 2 presentations that didn't make it into Lei Chic so you got the exclusive HERE!
Besides that, I got 8 days of NY in 5 entries, I'm sure you're tired of it all so this is my last NYFW post :P I didn't post everything, least to say it was A LOT. But there will be other trips to journal :) Thanks for staying tuned!!!!!!
I'm proud to say that I walk 20 blocks in this outfit; heels & all. It's a pleasant day for a stroll through mid-town. NY really makes me feel healthier with all the walking you do.

Brandon Sun's presentation involved intricate geometric shapes, experimentation with mixing textiles, & polished styles. I really enjoyed his mini collections within the whole.
Mathieu Mirano's presentation is another favorite of mine. It's provocative & beautiful. He consulted with the brilliant Bliss Lau for art direction on accessories & I can see her influence in the collection. There's a serpentine inspiration within the designs, whether in the fabric, the lines the stitching creates, or in the accessories. The look I found fascinating is the gold feather dress. Those feathers are REAL; but even more remarkable, is the roses are made with hand-sewn, preserved rose petals!! WHAT?! Yes....mind-blowing.
I left my heart in Brooklyn... I spent half a day wandering Williamsburg & can I just say, "I could really live here". The pace is mellow & the people are so friendly. I just want to buy a bike, rent an apt, & live a hop-skip-jump away from the city!!!
I thrifted at a place called Junk, a wonderland..of well..JUNK! Glorious junk though. Then, literally right around the corner is Buffalo Exchange (where I found the $30 Cynthia Rowley dress).
My tour guides, Ronald & Virginia, suggested a place called Meatball for lunch. MMmMM! It's a build-your-own kinda restaurant & the food is DELICIOUS. It's all about meatballs but you can have it ANY way you like. Choose your meat, your cheese, & your entree! GO THERE...PIG OUT.
