The day before Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week started, Blanc de Chine invited me to their Fall/Winter 2012 show. Before hand Rob & I decided to get some Boba (bubble tea) in Chinatown at Ten Ren’s. Since living in New York, I don’t think I’ve ever gone back without a visit to Ten Ren’s. You could say I’m addicted. After that we headed over to the show. P.S. It snowed! I haven’t seen snow in 3 years. Big deal for me.
My shots from the show aren’t my best but I like these 5. Blanc de Chine aims to bring out the inner beauty and the quiet elegance of a woman and I really think they nailed it with their refined pieces. Everything was very classic but had unique design elements. I enjoyed the show a lot, even a bit of the menswear. Some of the models walked around the cocktail party in their looks so it was great to get an up close look at some of the pieces.
Unexpected bonus end to the night, my friend Nikole invited me to Carlo Pazolini’s flagship store opening. Lots of famous faces and DJ’s but I was really excited to see Solange in person, since I’ve never seen her before. The fold up flats in my gift bag ended up saving my life a few nights later by the way. Fashion week is killer on the feet.
