Top of the morning to all of my splashy readers!!! As the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week has come to a close; I must say kudos to the fashion designers, event organizers and models. It was a great display of what we are to expect in the avenue that fashion and style is heading. I have attended many fashion shows and events throughout the week and man was there a lot of running around in the name of fashion (whew). The two presentations that I admired the most were: Landeros New York and Lupe Gajardo collections. Both collections obtained unique pieces that would totally upstage any outfit you wear and add an extra BOOM, BOOM, POW effect.

The Landeros New York Fall/Winter Presentation was held at the Scandinavia House and was it a sight to see on Monday. I adore the beige clutch as it is unisex and it really stood out for its detail, design and innovative craftmanship. Landeros New York is the love child of Andre Landeros Michel inspired by music and his love of Goth his trends can influence everyone’s sense of fashion with just one simple piece.

At the age of 16 Michel used to make dresses out of garbage bags. Through dedication, perservance and hardwork he has made us all believers and consumers. Not giving up on your dreams although struggle and hardship maybe presented just know that something beautiful can become of it if you follow through.

On Tuesday I attended the Lupe Gajardo Fall/Winter 2015 collection show at the Pavilion at Lincoln Center. The theme was “Birds and the homeless” as Gajardo used recycled denium, amazing pathwork, coffee stacks and pins to display New Yorkers daily life through the form of design.

Feathers were a celebrated theme as elegant gowns, sweaters with drapery hints wowed the crowd.

New York is known for it’s fast pace movement however, there is a level of comfort that each person expresses through their style of dress. Gajardo captures the feel of New Yorkers as well as the versatility.

Hiiii splashy readers. Are you keeping warm? I AM!!! I’m in love with the coco (repeat twice; inserts my dance here). And that’s a reference to coco as in hot chocolate haha. Keep it cute. It has been a great week I hope everyone has been enjoying Fashion Weeek, Valentine’s day and All Star Weekend because I have been. This week has been a blessing reconnecting, networking and having a grand time with the Kewl Kids as well as basketball and fashion enthusiasts whoop!

I have been in better spirits and have been working on some great projects that will simultaneously be released. I appreciate all of my splashy readers that have taken the time to email me regarding my well being, donating to the #iSmileforAngele campaign and inspiring me to continue to keep making positive strides. HUGS.

I will give you a recap of some of my week activities. There was a lot of running around, gifting suites and smiles.

MONDAY: VIP Lexus #vidalexus event
image

Everytime I go out I am most likely with the Kewl Kids. We are LEGO pieces; separately we all serve a purpose to connect to make something big. Whenever we come together we help each other complete the bigger puzzle by making a masterpiece. We all have careers in different fields such as: fashion, music, photography, sports, media, and etc.

The Lexus event was not our final destination we went to Cielo afterwards. We were greeted by a lady who was illuminated and was hoola hooping. We are Kewl Kids but this is a grown up table haha.

TUESDAY: BAILEY’S Chocolate Cherry launch at Milk River and Open Door restaurant

image

The Bailey’s Chocolate Cherry launch event was cutesy. The shot girls were very friendly and the bartenders kept the drinks flowing. There was also passed appetizers and a gift bag filled with a Bailey’s T-shirt, Bailey’s loition, mirror and chapstick.

image

A few Kewl Kids were in the building :-). We didn’t stop there it was my first time at the restaurant called Open Door and I heard so much about the meatloaf I was sold at bacon. It was a hardboiled egg inside of a portion meatloaf wrapped in bacon with a side of mash. All I can say is it was love because I don’t have a picture to show for it.

WEDNESDAY: Sophisticated Wedding launch party at Tribeca Rooftop

image

The decor was amazingly crafted by MWD Lifestyles. I had a great time there was an assortment of food, desserts and candy station. The shrimp and cheeses were my favorite. What is an event without a photobooth and props.

THURSDAY: Ducati Triumph NYC event and The Starter x Villa All Star DJ Experience event at Paramount
image

The Ducati event food was catered by Chef Roblé and Damien Lillard stopped by to check out the event. This was a smooth event the DJ definitely made the party jump. The night was empowered by Ortiz.

Following the Ducati event I headed to the Paramount Hotel for the All Star DJ Experience brought to you by Starter and VILLA. The vibe was cool and everyone was enjoying theirselves.

FRIDAY: Lulu’s Fashion Week Blogger’s event at 404 NYC

The night was full of surprises from sponsors such as: clothing given by White Crow, make overs and massages done by Shea Moisture, drinks provided by Hpnotiq, manicures given by 100 percent pure and so much more.

I was the lucky winner of a $500 Lulu’s gift card in which I so surprised and grateful to receive. I love Lulu’s clothes. There was an amazing gifting suite and Lulu’s definitely kicked off my weekend. Thanks for everything!

Onto the Christian Benner show which was for a great cause there were green Sharpie’s on the table with a note attached stating to write “Don’t give up” and take a selfie in support of the Road recovery. It is to help heal kids of mental illness and other adversities through music.

The band and live entertainment were phenomenal.
