We have made it through the first half of New York Fashion Week events with a fresh spring/summer 2016 vibe on our brains and a lot of excellent NYC coffee in our bellies.
While we were able to catch up with friends new and old, another stellar highlight has been to experience the venue changes head on. Whereas last year, fashionistas from across the globe bombarded Lincoln Center in numbers, this season has brought about several new locales (and many more presentation formats) for editors and industry pros alike to enjoy. Although you can catch our full, day-to-day content at the hashtag #ALIVEatNYFW, here’s a roundup of a few of our favorite moments that have taken place so far. On to part two (and some much needed shopping in Brooklyn…)!

Elizabeth and I were so happy to congratulate Wash U alum Jordana Warmflash on a beautiful presentation for her line, Novis. See her at STLFW as part of the Caleres Emerging Design Awards! Photo by Sarah Stallmann.

We loved the unique take on simplicity at Karigam (and even ran into native St. Louisan and model Devon Windsor just outside the show!). Photo by Kayla Meyers.

The ladies from Caleres were too kind to give us a tour of the New York offices, where we previews the SS16 collections and met (the super sweet and humble) designer Franco Sarto.
Julie and Jason, also Caleres Emerging Designer Award finalists for their line Haus Alkire, came out to support Novis and chat with us about their newest collection. Photo by Sarah Stallmann.
The vibe was dark and cool for the Skingraft presentation at The Dock. Photo by Sarah Stallmann.

Saturday night ended with a bang: attended the Frankie B show as special guests of Fern Mallis and enjoyed a 4-course dinner after the show with the designers of the newly re-vamped LA -based line. Photo by Sarah Stallmann.
