With New York fashion week now wrapped and my feeling better from a bad cold, I finally have the time to recap for you! I kicked off the week by attending the Made in Earth showroom party in SoHo at their Elizabeth Street location. Upon meeting owner and founder Bunny Bedi (who is based in Australia) Francisco and I fell in love with the brand and the beautiful natural jewelry.
All of their gemstones are mined in different parts of the world. For example, one of my favorites in the images above is rainbow pyrite (the gold glittery one) which exclusively comes from Russia. See the image right above the jewelry where Bunny opened the rock to show us rainbow pyrite in its natural habitat. I am now the proud owner of rainbow pyrite earrings and an adventurine green skull ring. Not only do these stones look beautiful but they are expertly crafted and all have energetic properties that will help you in all areas of your relationships or your decision-making process. Stay tuned for a collab shoot we did the following week which I'll post next!
One show I had a blast attending was the Domingo Zapata #LovexFashionxArt presentation. He is a visual artist from Spain and in this fashion show there was a mixture of live painting (one of the models had a heart painted on her back by him) and flamenco dancing as well as a drag performer and grunge meets flamenco clothing look with Spanish and pop music. It was a lot of fun to attend! If you look closely in my photos you might spot Lindsey Lohan. Check out my Instagram @carolinasantosread for videos of the painting and flamenco performer. The show was at the Box in the Lower East Side, further adding to the grunge & rock and roll vibe.
The photos above are from the Nolcha accessories presentation featuring wonderful beauty and accessories collections. I really enjoyed meeting some of the designers and chatting with them about their brand. El Voyage had some fabulous shoes, handbags, and scarves as did Andraab which focuses on luxury cashmere scarves from the cashmere region in India. Cofi designs are all from Denver and they make leather goods either shoes or bags with patterns and textures that are just beautiful! I love their metallic boots and bags that feel so soft like suede but are in fact leather. Their floral cowboy boots are so gorgeous too!
I also loved talking to beauty brand Ecru New York and trying their lipstick and mascara. I will soon get to try out their hair products and I'll be sure to post about all the products they gave me to try! See my Instagram for a little video I did wearing their berry lipstick and mascara. So smooth and really lasts, and my lashes looked incredibly long!
All the fashion week shows and events I was able to attend (a Puma event prior to fashion week too, see my IG for more) were wonderful! I can't wait to pick up some new pieces for fall, but in the meantime I'm excited for Spring to be here soon with the weather starting to heat up in New York. There are so many fun jackets and shoes I can't wait to start wearing!
Stay tuned next week for a shoot Francisco and I did for Made in Earth where I was able to model some of their gorgeous jewelry!
