Happy Monday Fashion Femme Fatales!!! Lets get this week kick-started with pictures from a wonderful show I witnessed during Nolcha Fashion Week: “Tess Johnson.” Tess Johnson has loved fashion since she was a little girl. If you don’t know who Tess Johnson is…well, you’re about to find out and fast! She is one of the hottest emerging designers. Tess is known for prints, draping, glamour! Here’s Tess’ backstory in her own words: “I spent 4 years studying at Parson The New School for Design, spent a semester in Paris, and many years interning. I graduated with a BFA in women’s wear designer after presenting my Senior Thesis, my first real collection. I then had the opportunity to compete on Lifetime TV’s show “24 Hour Catwalk”, where I successfully created a 3 look collection, and was chosen the winner. Since Parsons, I have shown a Resort wear collection in Miami, have been invited to participate in the AHA “Red of the Runway” event, had a featured mannequin display in Saks 5th Ave flagship store, received a Swarovski sponsorship, and slowly began to grown my brand.” Please check out my video of Tess Johnson’s final walk out (which I tweeted right after the show) and upcoming posts on other collections I saw during Nolcha Fashion Week.
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.
