If you guys have been following along with me on social media the past few weeks you’ve seen a preview of how awesome NYFW is. It’s a fun and trendy expression of art, philosophy and style that brings together stylish influencers and celebrities from all over the world. It really did feel like an honor to be part of it for the first time this year!
I was invited to the Kyboe show, held at The Arc at Skylight at Moynihan Station in Manhattan. An event space below the James A. Farley Post Office building (the big post office across from MSG and Penn Station), which opened in 1914 and is truly monumental and a gorgeous piece of architecture, The Arc’s atmosphere definitely added to the collection and overall experience.
The way the light cast shadows on the floor was artistic and creative and the entire space created an atmosphere that got me even MORE excited about NYFW.
Kyboe (pronounced “ki-boe”) is a luxury watch brand from the Netherlands. It made history at this NYFW show as the first watch brand to host it’s collection in a solo show. In the center of the runway was a conveyor belt that had mannequins of hands (from the wrist up) with the SS’17 Kyboe collection strapped onto them. For the first few minutes of the event I wondered if that would be the whole runway show, but it wasn’t long before the models came out with their own attire styled with Kyboe.
The movement of the collection combined with the strong beats from the DJ and the colorful lights made my first NYFW experience quite the event. I fell in love with the story behind the collection and the lax and fun attitude of the models (plus, I got to meet them after the show and at the after party – which was SO much fun, but that’s another story)! 🙂
After leaving the show, I went over to the lounge area to socialize and check out the 20 Years of Jimmy Choo exhibit they had set up on the walls.
Of course, I got sidetracked and ended up stumbling upon the filming of an episode of Fashion Police. Which means I was this close to Giuliana Rancic and Tim Gunn.
Pretty cool spontaneous turn of events and an awesome way to kick off my first *official* NYFW!
Stay Classy! xx
