Here is part one of my NYFW Fall 2020 vlog. I decided to post the my NYFW coverage in two parts. In this video which is about twenty minutes long, covers the first couple of days. Personally, I prefer longer videos as when I am on YouTube I like to settle in and not have to keep searching for something to watch every ten minutes. But an hour is a bit long and I did’t want my computer to start smoking when I exported the video. At any rate, I take you to the shows at Spring Studios and Pier 59 as well as what I got up to between the shows. And stayed tuned for Part two coming next week.
I once again had the extreme pleasure of attending the Flying Solo shows for NYFW. I attended both the ready-to-wear and couture shows and was duly impressed by both presentations. In an age of a disruptive industry, what some are referring to the retail apocalypse and the rise of online streaming, and very crowded and competitive space Flying Solo seeks to unite fashion, support up and coming designers and pay homage to the city that has always been at the heart of fashion. Tom Ford may have snubbed his nose at New York, and other well known brands my only show overseas but Flying Solo is committed to the New York fashion scene and to that end plans on opening two additional locations in addition to their recently expanded store front on West Broadway in Soho.
Well it is finally here, my Paris Fashion Week vlog. This was one of the busiest fashion weeks for me. From the ground breaking non gender specific African American owned Telfar opening fashion week to the forty two designer Flying Solo Collective I felt like I was running around non stop. This is a long video so grab the popcorn.From shows to presentations to shooting street style, pre-loved shopping, dinner with other influencers and outings with my Parisian family I was one busy and very tired fashionista. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I hope you enjoy my escapades…
I had the distant pleasure of attending Flying Solo’s second show for NYFW. They premiered last season for Fall 2019 and SS2020 was the second time they presented for NYFW. The started more or less on time, which is surprising for a fashion show and I barely made it, and scooted in the door in the nick of time. I had to work, and I even left early, but it was all I could do to make it in time. I was been invited by Viivi and I think they walked right before I arrived and featured the fun quirky tees they are known for. I did get to see them during the finale.
