Today I had the pleasure of viewing Czar by Cesar Galindo’s Fall 2013 collection. He has some amazingly constructed pieces with fur statements and draped parachute-like bottoms. I feel like he had a common ground amongst all of his pieces and that was flow and sophistication. That is totally my style. I love mixing classy or sophisticated with edgy or statement pieces. I definitely see myself in his creations and incorporating them into my current wardrobe. I absolutely loved this collection!
For those of you who don’t know, this is my very first New York Fashion Week! I am so happy and blessed to be able to provide you all an inside look into NYFW and exclusive footage from the show! I personally really love this designer because not only does he create beautiful garments, but we are both from the South. Seeing that someone from Houston can get out of a conservative town and immerse himself in the NYC culture and make it out alive is so inspiring to me! I feel like that has been the theme of this trip for me…Inspiration. I have met so many amazing people and to hear about their journeys and how they never gave up is what I want to project on to you all. Fight for your dreams! Make them a reality!
I remember day dreaming when I was younger, literally laying down on the concrete driveway and staring into the sky. The sky was always so fascinating to me with all the wonder and curiosity it held. I would watch the clouds slowly drift by and I would imagine myself in New York City at fashion week. I imagined myself mingling and connecting with established people and wanting to leave my foot print somewhere on this Earth. Fast forward to today and I have had several “pinch me” moments since I’ve been here. I am almost driven to tears because as I am writing this because Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has become my reality. Being a fashion writer has become my reality. Mingling and connecting with established people has become my reality. How did I get here? I fought really hard. I fought with myself. I was my biggest battle. Once I figured out that my self-doubts was the only barrier I had in my way, I was able to get out of my own way and figure out how I would get to where I want to be. I still have a LONG way to go, but I must say that I can finally say I am proud of myself.
I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the amazing supporters I have in my life (family, friends, colleagues). Thank you!
