I recently attended the Spring 14′ NY Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! I was only in NY for a weekend and man did I have an experience of a lifetime! Everything happened in the moment! I got to see several shows, meet celebrities and fashion icons, interviewed Tracy Reese and her lead make-up and hair team, was highlighted on essence.com for great street style, and best of all, I got to meet Diane Von Furstenberg – my fashion idol! Here is a brief photo recap of my fashion week experience – –

I only took a picture of these guys because everyone else was…figured they might be important. Didn’t want to miss out…haha

Ran into a familiar face from back home! Hey Mike!

3rd row back, I was sitting right in front of June Ambrose, her daughter Summer, and Mrs. J from ANTM! Waiting for the Son Jung Wan Spr 14′ show to begin.

After the show I snapped a photo with June Ambrose!

On the way to another show, I ran into Selita Ebanks, she was so sweet!

It was great to see how the show was put together before it hit the runway! Tracy Reese is extremely talented! Loved the collection!

At the Papyrus station and had fashion illustrator Bella Pilar autograph a copy of her specialty cards!

Snapped a photo with Kenya Moore after the show! My heels had came off for this shot, they needed a break! ha

Loved the music playing, so, I went to go see who the DJ was! Another random place I managed to get into haha

This was the standby line to get into the DVF show….crazy!

I didn’t get to see the show… but this was so much better!! I got to meet Diane Von Furstenberg herself! My fashion icon! I was really excited, I don’t think I was breathing in this picture! ha
