Happy Friday Fashion Femme Fatales and Gents! TGIFFFFF for real!!! I’m excited to get the weekend started!! Let’s begin with a “feel-good” designer collection. I was very excited to be invited to the VOZ runway show during NYFW. VOZ is a showcase of international designers that work with communities in Southern Chile, to envision, prototype and finalize fair trade fashion collections. Thus, empowering indigenous artisans and their art forms through collaborative fashion design. The handmade garments feature premium quality natural and ecological fibers, hand dyed and woven to celebrate ancient traditions; it is where luxury meets social change. OH…and yes, the artisans receive name credit and earn royalties for their designs, which is what I like to hear!
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.
