It was a Style driven event on September 11th as I kicked off my first bi annual New York Fashion Week Streaming Party for Portreys.com.
Fashionistas filled the heart of Soho all in the name of fashion. When I initially planned the event, I sat with a friend and jotted down some ideas for fashion week and ten it hit us, I wanted seek out to give editors, bloggers and women alike the opportunity to have a space where they can mingle, create new relationships and watch the shows that are normally invite only, in style with other amazing women.
It’s only been one year since I’ve launched my blog and I’ve found it somewhat difficult to secure attendance to the shows and at one point found myself admiring Vogue.com to see the latest on the runways and discussing it later on with my friends, but this season although I was invited to some shows I still wanted to create an environment that was more inclusive during NYFW.
And I did just that! Over 200 attendees recharged between shows with Coconut Water from Harmless Harvest. In addition, they were able to explore their sweet and salty desires with Butter Lane cupcakes and Skinny Pop popcorn, all while witnessing awesome garments glide down the runway of various shows. The crowd compromised of your typical fashionista, out of state wanders, and your NYC working professionals.
As I walked the room of my event and welcomed so many attendees, I started to hear so many of their amazing stories and how they loved the event. Some of the attendees were heard saying that “This was a great event; I met some many amazing women.”
So mission accomplished! I was able to host some amazing women at this season NYFW streaming party and I cannot wait to do this all over again next February!
If you were not able to attend this season, don’t worry there is always next February. SO subscribe to the blog to get more up to date information on my latest events.
