Hester Street Fair + Henri Bendel = A Rockin’ Fashion’s Night Out

[nggallery id=102]

Last Thursday was Fashion’s Night Out in New York City.  This is the first year I have participated because a) I had the makeover, b) I had the perfect Little Black Dress and jewelry, and c) Hester Street Fair was shaking up 5th Avenue!

I started out my day with my friend Angelo Guglielmo at Lincoln Center for the BCBG Max Azria runway show at 10:30 in the morning.  We enjoyed the entire venue.  And I know I posted that Black is the New Black, but I have a feeling that this crowd knows that black has always been the only color worth bothering with.

That night, I went to Fashion’s Night Out with the Hester Street Fair at Henri Bendel on 5th Avenue.  What a crowd!  It was a market with in an iconic space featuring amazing handmade, artisanal goods.  It had the loud music, the fun crowds, and atmosphere of a club.  And most of all, it was a really great meeting of Uptown and Downtown, where the commonalities were design, quality, craftsmanship, and a really great time with some amazing people!  Check out all the photos, including:

I wrapped up the evening at opening of the solo show of fine artist Amarillis Kroon at the Red Market Salon in the Meatpacking District.  Ami is an extremely talented artist, whose paintings of Nouveau Art Deco Women are extraordinary.  Her artwork is up until the end of this month, so definitely go check it out.

And now, about my outfit.  My dress is an amazing work of design, craftsmanship, and eco-fabric by the talented Nina Valenti of Nature vs. Future of the Independent Designers Pop Shop at Chelsea Market. My jewelry was a chic, gold, hand-hammered ensemble by Shaya Mehubad of ShayaNYC of the Nolita Market.  And my perfume, as ever, was a hand blended potion by Megan Brame of Metropolis Soap Company of various markets around town.  I am thrilled to report that I got stopped by no fewer than a dozen strangers throughout the day asking me where I got my dress and my baubles.  It was a really great Fashion’s Night Out for this blogger.
