Mataano & Korto Momolu “Remember” event at the Samsung Experience on Sunday, September 11th at the Time Warner Center. It was an amazing eye feast of the who’s who in urban high fashion from Essence magazine editors to America’s Next Top Model judges. Two fashion shows backed to back with all of the excitement of a doubleheader.
First up bold and bright! If you haven’t heard of Mataano- it’s time to look up these bad ass Somali twins (Ayaan & Idyl Mohallim). Matanno’s spring/summer collection consists of contemporary silhouettes, tropical prints and vibrant colors. Inspired by the 60’s & 70’s, the twins said,” We loved our visit to the island of St. Lucia. Everything was colorful and lush, this collection reflects that essence. The second show was Korto Momolu is of Project Runway fame. Remember her? She almost won it all. By the looks of her fab collection she’s not crying over spilled milk. Her roots are in Liberia, Africa but this collection explores the artistry of Japan and the Samurai culture. Korto said, My woman this season is sophisticated, chic and a woman of heightened everyday elegance.”

I’m a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I’ve been “reporting” from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
