Mercedez Benz Fashion Week 2011
February 13th 2011 will be a date that I shall remember forever and a day. I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of one of the most biggest moments in fashion history. A good friend of mine invited me to join her and experiece fashion week first hand, and I have to tell you it was everything I ever dreamed of and more.
First let me share a little story with you. When I was about 8 years old I knew that I loved to draw and design outfits for my Barbie, I knew that there was something about using your imagination to create something so beautiful it was your soul painting on paper. The day I knew I wanted to go to school for design was the day I said to myself "I am going to attend fashion week in NYC one day" and just a few days ago I did just that, not as a designer but a spectator but "Oh what a magical night that was".
I was blessed to glance at the work of Diane Von Furstenburg and Zang Toi and "Oh My Fabric" was it an amazing sight to see live and in person. The colors these designers used were so vibrant and enchanting. The romance in these dresses were just moving with life, the models walked with such elegance and class. It was like experiencing what was inside one of their dreams it was so unreal.
Spring 2011 will be all about color and patters, I saw alot of floral patterns as well as bold bright colors such as bright reds, greens and blues. One particular fabric that stood out to me was the sequins, There were sequin dresses and jackets that were the "New" night blazer in my book. I wish you ladies could have seen first hand how beautiful everything was. If you stop by my youtube channel you can see some footage I recorded from that day.
This was really a dream come true for me, and I know that life can be real unfair at times and you might think nothing will ever happen for the good but please just take a moment before you start to believe that and know that someone out there went to hardships too and after the storm the rainbow came out for her. Believe that anything can happen, Believe that you can make your dreams come true as well, Fight the fight to success and you too will have a moment for life like I did. XOXO
