New York Fashion Week Fall 2012: Where the Shows Are!By Delaina Dixon | February 8, 2012 | Entertainment
New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 officially kicks off tomorrow!
While most of the action happens at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week inside Lincoln Center, it isn’t the only spot for runways. The DivaGals will be hitting several other presentations — beyond the tents — that shouldn’t be missed!
Lia Sophia Gift Lounge. One of our favorite celebrity-friendly jewelry lines, under the direction of Elena Kiam, hosts a VIP-only suite every season inside the tony Empire Hotel. Stars, models and elite fashion press will stop by to see the new zingara Red Carpet Collection. Lia Sophia is also offering a line of jewelry for Valentine’s Day that’s sure to put any lucky lady who receives a piece in the mood.
NOLCHA Fashion Week. Every season, new designers get their chance to show their wares at NOLCHA Fashion Week, which produces up to five shows featuring several designers, all in one day. This season’s presentation takes place at The Ailey Center for dance in Hell’s Kitchen, and will highlight the designs of Vassilis Zoulia, Jetset Collective by Farasha, Megla M, Teresa Rosati and Carlos Luna, just to name a few.
Goodness. Once again Elettra Wiedemann — Isabella Rossellini‘s daughter — returns to Fashion Week with her her pop-up restaurant Goodness. Taking place at Robert restaurant, 2 Columbus Circle, celebrity chefs such as Mario Batali, Alain Allegretti and Julian Medina will be in and out of the kitchen. Open daily from Feb. 11-14.
