One of my NYFW highlights was the debut runway show of Vantan Tokyo, a cutting edge fashion capsule from Japan’s premiere international design school. Years past these kids have been at Paris Fashion Week…aka…the pinnacle. I didn’t know what to expect, but honey, if these young designers were showing at the Lincoln Center I knew #1: the designs would be hot and #2 their pockets were deep – LOL! The show did not disappoint showing lines from Anki, Masato, Yuya and Cheryl. I became especially close with the latter. I didn’t think anything could top the show, but I hadn’t gone to their cocktail party yet!

At the Nexus floor room on the West side, I was able to chat it up with Yuya and Cheryl about their collection and more importantly, how to order. Cheryl’s showed me the hottest little dress with faux fur (retails near $400 includes shipping from Japan:)

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.
