Fashion + Networking = Open Source Fashion

Hi everyone, I am happy that I attended the first meetup for Open Source fashion in NYC at the WIX Lounge. There were tons of people who working in the Fashion and Beauty industry. From designers to blogger to Pr execs, everyone was there to network and learn from each other. I got to meet some really great people at the event. I have to say the OS Fashion is one stylish group.



You probably wondering how I found out about this group, well I found this group on meetup.com. If you are looking to meet new people or to just network, than check out meetup.com. They are full of group in your area. This was Open Source Fashion's first meetup. Which was great because At the meetupHaute Pr CEO - Robin Kassner and FashionStake Founder & President Vivian Weng talked about the fashion and pr industry. These ladies gave some great insight to many independent fashion designers, entrepreneurs and bloggers.




Here is Robin Kassner, CEO of Haute Pr talking about her company and some tips for all of us trying to make it in the fashion industry.


FashionStake Founder & President Vivian Weng answering some question from Pavan Bahl, Organizer of Open Source Fashion group on meetup.com. Pavan is starting his own footwear company and had tons of questions for the PR powerhouses.


After the discussion, everyone was talking and exchanging business cards. Networking is key in this industry.There were tons of folk at this meet up from models to bloggers to designers. It was great to see so many different people involved in the fashion and beauty industry.

Everyone was very friendly and wanted to learn more about each other and the industry. I meet a few great people at the Wix Lounge in NYC. Until next time

Heavy on Fashion Goes to The Alex Soldier Showroom

Hey everyone! I had a great opportunity to visit the The Alex Soldier Showroom in New York City. I became familiar with Alex Soldier at a private showcase in New York City. When I received a email from Maria Soldier, Executive Director of the Alex Soldier Showroom, to come and check out the Alex Soldier collection in New York City. I was honored.

Alex Soldier has a vast collection of jewelry and artwork that is exceptional in craftsmanship and quality. From unique luxury jewelry with exotic diamonds and precious stone designed for the rich and famous to awards for Royalty. Alex is a creator and a example of true artistry in the world of luxury.

Here is one of my favorite piece from Alex's collection. This starfish ring is full of precious stones including diamonds. The best thing some of Alex Soldiers' pieces is that are interchangeable. Each piece has a custom key for each interchangeable piece.  They can be a ring or a pin. I believe the company is also working on making these…

Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's Girl Nights out in NYC - Fall 2011

Hey guys! As you all know, I had a chance to cover Shecky's Girls Night Out in New York City.  I am a fan of Shecky's  event but this time around I found some great fashion, a celebrity sighting, and of course some great cocktails. Here is Heavy on Fashion at Shecky's in NYC!  

Vh1's Tough Love Miami @ Shecky's
Host and matchmaker Steve Ward along with fellow match maker and founder of Master Matchmaker Joann Ward (also Steve's Mom!) was at Shecky's giving out some great dating advice to all the ladies in New York! 




Don't you just love this dress. Fabulous! 

Here is a look at the crowd for Steve and Joann. Many ladies had some awesome question about relationships and dating. I have to say that Steve and Joann gave some grand advice. 

Sidenote: I am really loving Joann's style! 

When Steve took off his jacket, I knew he was  about to get down to business! He did and gave out some much needed Tough Love! Check out their site at http://www.mastermatchm…
