What have I been up to? I am on a business and mini-vacation in New York. I am also covering Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. The bi-annual event began on September 4th and ends on September 11th, 2014.
Prior to arriving in New York for fashion week, I was asked by Designer Carrie Hammer to model in her show. When she informed me about the theme of the show ‘Role Models Not Runway Models,’ it was simply a no brainer to say “Yes!”
I walked her runway show alongside some really remarkable brilliant women and it was definitely fun, inspiring and empowering for me. What’s equally great is I walk away being a part of a network with these awesome women! What an honor. Thank you to Carrie for inviting me and Susan Scafidi and the Fashion Law Institute for putting on an awesome show. Wishing you ladies continued success and I look forward to being a part and also helping tell your success stories.
Folks, enjoy some pictures and catch you all soon.
