NYFW is coming to an end later today, but it was an exciting and inspiring week for a fashion entrepreneur! I had the opportunity to attend several shows and had a blast expressing myself through fashion. The two shows were very different stylistically, which made the adventure of styling an outfit even more fun.
The first show I attended was Christian Benner, a New York based designer inspired by rock and roll. Benner's presentation included an array of beautiful leather jackets in a old fashioned bar with Led Zeppelin blasting as the models displayed Benner's A/W 2017 line of jackets. Although "rock and roll" may not have "saved my soul," I interpreted this edgy style into my own! I wore ripped jeans with lace tights underneath, T-strap block heals, and a simple black high-necked cape. It fit the environment and I confidently expressed my style.
The second show I attended less than 24 hours later was the Small Boutique Fashion Show, a runway showcase for handmade goods, custom made clothing, independent designers, boutique owners, and members of the small scale buying community. I was very excited about this show, as someone who is passionate about supporting small business. For this show, I wore the same T-strap block heals from the night before (but this time, with socks underneath), a handmade silver circle midi skirt, a black turtleneck, pearls, and myCleveland skyline purse. It was fun to represent Anne Cate in New York.
Although the two NYFW shows were completely different, I loved being able to interpret them into my own style. New York has offered so much inspiration over the past month - from rocker fashion shows to the fantastic architecture.
I am excited to announce that Anne Cate will be designing a new line of accessories within the next few months. I am looking forward to growing the brand. Stay tuned for updates.
It's 2017 - an era where you can truly be whoever you want to be. Individualism, natural beauty, and focusing on "the self" are all encouraged more than ever before. In many senses, fashion is an expression of identity. It is an amazing way to show your true self. How do you express yourself? Comment below!
I love expressing myself through my accessories. I am a lover of simple pearls, long earrings, floppy hats, and of course, skyline purses! A skyline accessory of your favorite city, hometown, or dream adventure expresses a unique characteristic of yourself.
Express your passions, with Anne Cate!
The first City of the Week feature is here (for more information about the City of the Week promotion, click here).
This week's city being featured is: NASHVILLE. This fantastic Tennessee city is full of music and life. When designing this city skyline, I came across this fun fact! The tallest skyscraper in Tennessee...the AT&T Building...is known as the "Batman Building" because of the pointed "ears" that spike out from the tip of the building resembling Batman's mask. This building is iconic to the Nashville skyline.
