Chanel Omari recaps her NY Fashion Week Fall 2014!
I am sad to report that NY Fashion Week has come to an end, but on a brighter note, all my exclusive moments are here, only on DivaGalsDaily!
LISA JACKSON NEW JEWELRY LINE
I kicked off celebrating fashion week with celebrity interior decorator and now jewelry designer Lisa Jackson, who is most known for her work for clients such as Renee Zellweger, Vera Wang, Tory Burch and Michael J. Fox. I was invited to her exclusive private showcase of her new jewelry line.
It was a natural step for the designer to delve into the world of fine jewelry. In February 2014, Jackson will unveil LJ Cross, her stylish line of cross earrings and necklaces that are sold exclusively at PhoenixRoze on Madison Avenue. She’s also launching an e-commerce site this Spring at www.ljcrossny.com. I got to rock Lisa’s cool and unique designs, especially the heart locket, which was blinged out in diamonds, and got to spend the night with well-known photographer, Patrick McMullen who captured the magical night.
CHARLOTTE RONSON’S AFTER PARTY
Designer Charlotte Ronson held her official after-party on Feb. 14 – Valentine’s Day — for her Fall 2014 presentation at the soon to be opened Tender Restaurant, located at Sanctuary Hotel. I hung out with other celebrity guests Natalia Kills, Jesse Metcalfe, Joe Jonas, Siva Kaneswaran from The Wanted, Mariska Hargitay and Ralph Lauren‘s new hottest face, Morgan O’Connor, at the Manhattan Magazine hosted event. The one and only DJ Samantha Ronson, Charlotte’s twin sister, played a special set as we danced the night away. Tender is set to officially open in March, and is designed by Josh Held and owned by Hank and Brandon Freid.
NOLCHA FASHION WEEK
I attended Nolcha Fashion presentation at Pier 59 in NYC and had a blast! Presented by RUSK and featuring global independent designers, NOLCHA, which showcases emerging designers, has been attended by numerous celebrities including Melanie Brown, Kelly Rutherford, Jennie Garth, Christy Turlington, Supermodel Coco Rocha, Katrina Bowden and more.
Designers featured in this year’s lineup included Gail Be, Riza Manalo, Christian Benner, Naveda Couture, Maison de Papillon and Christina Yi. The designs were unique and breathtaking; you better believe these emerging designers brought their A game to the fashion table! I had the privilege of walking the NOLCHA Step and Repeat with fashion stylist Derek J from Bravo TV’s Fashion Queens and Morgan O’Connor, again! – who’s been reportedly connected to Lindsay Lohan, as well as actress and singer Zendaya.
After the amazing show, I went by Pink Elephant where we were treated like royalty for NOLCHA Fashion Week’s after party, and then to the VIP room, where I sat right next to Wiz Khalifa and long term girlfriend Amber Rose. Ladies, you can now put those cheating rumors to rest. Wiz is so crazy in love with Amber, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other the entire night — Gents, take notes from the rapper! We all danced to some Wiz’s beats and he even got on the mic to sing a few of his favorites. He had the whole club poppin!
Until next time… Love your Diva Princess,
