Why I’m M.I.A & A New Start For 2022

By Posted on 36 Comments 1 min read 501 views

We all know the last two years have been rough. And I am sure we are glad that 2021 is over. In addition to world events I lost my mom in 2020, nothing can really prepare you for that. It is a slow climb out of mourning but there is light at the end of tunnel. Life can be difficult we all know that, but it is true that time heals all wounds, or least lessens them.

50 Shades of Gorgeous For Hauturely.com

Today I am sharing with you an editorial I did for Hauturely.com. Hauturely.com is an online community resource platform for influencers and lovers of fashion. It features a Network of fashion obsessed influencers and writers that brings to its readers all the latest news and events happening in the fashion industry. I have covered fashion week both in New York and Paris for Hauturely in the past, but this is my first editorial. I produced the shoot along with the founder Chloe Recine, and I was both the creative director and the fashion director. I sourced the talent, cast the model, and was responsible for the concept, art direction, layout design, photo retouching, writing and editing, and I styled about half the looks, including this last one. I worked with a GREAT team and a phenomenal photographer. Pierre is fast, we shot nine looks in five hours—quite the feat I must say.

I do not often speak about politics on the blog or my social media channels. Occasionally I post my sentiments on social movements like BLM and #metoo. But for the most part my blog and my YouTube channel are a forum where I create content that inspires and topics that I am passionate about such as fashion, beauty and photography. But sometimes one is pushed to the limit of keeping silent. So I am sharing with you an experience of sorts that motivated me to speak out. Granted this is not an earth shattering event, but eye opening to be sure.

Well I am finally posting my NYFW vlog. This season was not as busy for me as seasons in the past but it was certainly busier then the last two seasons. Things are slowly getting back to normal. It was great to see so many people out and dressed up for the occasion. I met a lot of great people and I am sharing a lot of their looks with you this season. It is so fun speaking with people about their looks, who knows this could be the start of something new for me…

Tucked away on vibrant West Eight street, the Spring Summer 2022 show for Negris Lebrum was held at Atrium In the West Village on the evening of September eleventh. This much buzzed about show was well attended with strict measures including masks being given out at the door and a thorough check in procedure. Champagne was served lending a celebratory air to the event and helped to relax attendees as they waited for the show to begin.

Day two of NYFW arrived gray and rainy, but that didn’t slow things down as this season’s Fashion Week went back to semi-normal with in person shows and presentations. Although many shows were held with limited capacity and presentations were staggered, this Fashion Week was certainly livelier than it has have been the last two seasons.

This NYFW season I was featured on New York Magazine’s The Cut in their coverage on SS2021 street style. I am wearing head to toe NeuBryne. I love this jacket was super flattered that I was stopped for this photo. The bag is from local New York designer Liselle Kiss. The sunnies are from Anthropologie, the jewelry was my mom’s and the sneakers I picked up at Cross Roads. This season was not as busy for me as in the past but it was certainly busier then the last two seasons.
