NFW: Nolcha Fashion Week Fall 2014

The last stop for me during NYFW was Nolcha Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Week presented by RUSK. It's a designer showcase I look forward to season after season. It is filled with great sponsors and vendors who are all friendly and the celebrities in attendance are friendly as well (you can carry a conversation and snap a pic or two with them). This season I enjoyed sponsors such as RUSK, Defiant Whiskey, Medical Aesthetics, and DonQ Rum. I attended the closing shows at 8:30pm at Pier 59 Studios...a spot I have come to enjoy for these shows. I was able to see familiar designers and some new ones such as Jungwon, Gabrielle Arruda, L. Catherine London, Nina Athanasiou, and Dany Tabet. While seated, I spotted some celebrities that I wanted to meet post-runway shows, and I got to all of them except Derek J (RHOA hairstylist and co-host of Fashion Queens). In front of me sat Zendaya Coleman. She and her stylist were so nice. I tapped him to ask if that was in fact her and she turned around and smiled. I told her that I loved her look (a gold pleated maxi skirt with a cropped leather jacket and a black baseball cap) and she was so nice. Her nails were fierce too. Across the runway I spotted Jeremy Jackson, of Baywatch fame, and Kelly Rutherford (from Gossip Girl and now Being Mary Jane. I congratulated her on the new gig). And last, but certainly not least, I met Stevie Boi. He designs very fashion forward sunglasses that you have seen Lady Gaga, Anna Dello Russo, Fergie, and more. I have been following him on social media for a little and it's always nice to finally meet someone outside of the tech.

Some photos came out great...and some not so fab. Sometimes I win with pics, other times I don't. But I had a great time. Thanks again Nolcha! Looking forward to next season.
