Couture Fashion Week

February is an exciting and busy month…Valentine’s Day, Super Bowl, Sochi Olympics and New York Fashion Week!  Held twice a year every February and September, fashion design collections are showcased to buyers, the press and general public.  My friends and I attended the Couture Fashion Week event the other night at the New Yorker Hotel.  When the models walked out one-by-one down the runway, my heart skipped a beat.  We had front row seats.  It was a surreal experience for several of us as first-year fashion design students!  The first designer was inspired by the Chinese New Year symbol of the Year of the Horse.  Design after design embodied the tribal Chinese style.  The next designer, Laurie Elyse, presented her collection with white, black, and metallic silver colors for her “Bandages” collection made from medical supplies, hospital gowns, gauze, pill bottles and medical tape.  This innovative designer has been called a “creative genius”.  And then the last collection by Otgoo Couture, amazed the audience.  The designer is from Mongolia.  We were awestruck by the modern Mongolian style designs.  It was breathtaking!  At the end of the show, we had the opportunity to greet all the guests and meet the photographers, designers and models.  They were very welcoming, gracious and friendly.  It was one of the BEST experiences of my life…ever!  I took a lot of pictures to post:
