Made in New York fashion presentation sponsored by Cottonelle

Last month I was invited to a Summer Lounge event by Crowdtap/Cottonelle but there was some scheduling confusion and didn’t end up going.

So when this invite came up on Crowdtap , I was pretty excited and applied immediately.

The fashion show was hosted by Young & Able. They are a retail platform for emerging designers and brands. They are primarily an online retail site but do events like Made in New York so the designers can showcase their work.

I headed to The Carlton Hotel where the fashion presentation was being held .

When I walked down the stairs I took off my sunglasses and my eyes were still adjusting when I looked over I recognized someone and they looked at me too. It was an old pal Paola ,that I worked with years back when I was a model (she is a make up artist) . She asked if I was walking in the fashion show but told her this time I’m watching. She was there with her fiancé Jason (fashion photographer) who I worked with too.
They were taking portraits for the Share More LOVE project.

It was so nice to see them , it’s been a long time . Plus it was nice to talk to people I knew since I went to the event solo.

After chatting with them for a bit I headed to the bathroom to freshen up since it was muggy and hot outside .
I had no problem finding it .

The bathroom was stocked with cottonelle toilet paper and flushable wipes. I brought some in my purse in case I got all sweaty before the event because I knew it would be muggy.

On the bathroom mirrors there were stickers so of course I had to take a few photos .

I’m not that much of a tea drinker but the infusion iced herbal tea ( tried the peach, vervain, lemon) was good. I’m actually drinking it now while writing this blog post ( much better cold).They just put it in the ice so it was warm that’s when I decided to put it in my bag and grab the sparkling wine.

Now the fashion show

There were 4 designers Kung Katherine , Kai New York, Luba Gnasevych, and Mimi New York.

My favorites were Kung Katherine (beginning of video) and Mimi New York (end of video). I could see myself wearing Kung Katherine and if I ever had a fancy party to go to I would love to wear Mimi New York couture dresses.

How cool is the back of Mimi New York business card ?

I’m happy I was able to attend , I enjoyed myself. Hope Crowdtap has more events like this that I can attend. Especially when I’m living in the city.

Love these windows at Grand Central . Took this while waiting for my train.
