During NYFW, I visited the “Fit in Fashion Lounge” sponsored by amNewYork at the Empire hotel (just steps away from the Lincoln Center). I had the pleasure of meeting Ava Sanjurjo, a graduate of the world-renowned Fashion Institute of Technology, and founder of Rica Swimwear. The Spring/Summer 2012 line is KEWT! I was already impressed by the vibrant prints, but Ava took the cake when she told me each suit has UV protection built in! Like whoa! Get ready for the beach at RICAWORLD.
Just in case you didn’t know: amNewYork is Manhattan’s largest free daily paper. The paper’s mission is to provide readers (especially commuters) quality journalism that’s fresh, edgy and relevant.
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.
