I was lucky enough to score tickets to the Alice + Olivia Fashion Week Presentation…I brought my really good friend from school, Rachel. We got all dressed up and headed over to the West Side for the show (after completely MOWWING some Chipotle).
We get there and immediately walk into a red carpet event, much more than I was expecting. Guests were dressed to the T, drinks by Hypnotiq were served, and models handed out Altoids Smalls. Rachel and I hung around the entrance first to scope out the other guests who were all arriving and doing the whole press thing. Guests included Denise Richards, Elisabeth Moss (from Mad Men), Nicky Hilton, Nina Garcia, and many more.
In between checking out the other attendees, we grabbed a few drinks; Hypnotiq with blueberries and vodka, champagne, and a number of other fruity beverages were served for the guests.
After our star gazing we went to the back of the venue, where the collection was on a still life display of live models. The dresses were stunning; lacey Grecian styles, victorian and vintage inspired…the colors were creams and whites, perfect for spring. The more casual designs were fun. I’m in love with the burnt orange floral dress that looks like it belongs on a 50’s housewife. Other retro throwback styles included huge belled bottoms, long pleated skirts, and midriff baring tops. Accessory wise, I loved the use of the colored over sized glasses on a couple of the models.
The entire thing was quite an experience, including the live entertainment. The Pierces, Amanda Blank, and DJ Mia Moretti all performed…
