1 comment




Attention all fashion lovers! It’s time to pull out the best of the best from your closets and put together your most creative outfits. New York Fashion Week is finally upon us!! Whether you are an aspiring designer or fashion blogger wannabe (guilty!), this time of the year creates our NYC sanctuary. However, with all the costs and time associated with being a part of fashion week, it sometimes becomes a hassle to live out our fantasies of being at these events. Not many people realize that attending fashion week does not always have to be an attack on your bank account. Many new designers/collections/boutiques use this auspicious time in the fashion world to release their new projects, and many of these are very budget friendly or even free. When it comes down to this week, there is only one prevalent uniform reason a person would wish to participate: their love for fashion. Whether you are more avant garde or more haute couture, there is always something for you to revel in during NYFW. This past winter Fashion Week, I informed you about the Priv Beauty Pop Up, and this time around, I want to introduce you to the New York Fashion Week Style Bar on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

This year, NYC based company, Studio15 and Solescription are teaming up to launch their new collections. Best part about it all, it is open to the public. The very talented Jia Wertz founded Studio15. After spending time in Uganda, Africa and helping women develop sustainable businesses, the drive and dedication these women had inspired her to follow her own passion and dreams. Thus, she created Studio15 – a fashion forward brand, which presents the contemporary, trendy audience with reasonably priced, yet modern/chic pieces. Furthermore, Jia’s philanthropic inclination remains at the forefront of Studio15, where a portion of each sale helps supports women entrepreneurs in developing countries through a portion of Kleos Microfinance. They not only support that cause, but they also have #FreeAdnan tees in their shop that supports the young man, Adnan Syed, of the Serial podcast fame. Studio15 has been gaining popularity exponentially in recent times. In the last week, they have dressed and styled the actress and host of Access Hollywood, Liz Hernandez (Link to the clip). At the NYFW Style Bar event on September 12th, they will be launching their Bespoke Collection. This collection allows customers to be designers for a day and custom design a one – of – a - kind piece that will be produced for them within two weeks. Their existing collections bring out the classic touch to modern fashion. Definitely check out their website here.



The other partner in crime to this event is the shoe company Solescription. Much like the ideal of renting the runway, Solescription makes it possible for the customers to rent out a personalized shoe collection for a flat rate every month. Best part about this renting gimmick: you keep the shoes as long as your heart desires and then send it back in your pre-paid box. Oh yeah, and shipping is always free both ways. Can I get a hallelujah for this amazing company? The shoes are to die for and the ease in business makes this new company a needed investment for your closet. Moreover, Solescription also like Studio15 uses a portion of all memberships in supporting NGOs that help with resolving issues women face all around the world. So sign up, get these shoes, and do some good for the world. Because like Marilyn said, “Give a girl the right shoe, and she can conquer the world.” Checkout Solescription here.


So, now on to the fun stuff, on September 12, 2015 from 3 to 9 PM, Studio15 and Solescription are hosting a party during the holy time that is New York Fashion Week. Pamper yourself with free makeovers and hair styling, indulge in professional photography, network with New York’s fashion elite, drink, socialize and have a good ole’ time at The Chester, Gansevoort Meatpacking, 18 Ninth Ave, New York City. There will be music featured by DJ Temisphere and enjoy some excellent drink specials. Also, all guests will be able to revel in a secret preview of Studio15’s new collection. Best part about it all, for all my followers, you will be able to use the discount code FLAWLESS for 50% off the tickets. That means tickets will only be $10, and if that’s not motivation to go, I will be doing a giveaway for my followers that do attend.
