I am sitting back and re-visualising the second day of fashion week Columbus, walking towards the door of the Hilton hotel, I took a moment of silence before stepping in, taking a long deep breath and a glance through the glass windows in the hope of capturing essence of what awaited within. I of course attended this event alone, because i am a young and independent women. Yes! my new mantra
I then stepped in and was directed to the Champagne table, one thing that they never forget, it is a drink that is associated with luxury and that is the feel that they always want to bring to the table.
In being on this journey of trying to network and just meet new people, I walked in with a positive attitude and as soon as I stepped in my ready to mingle attitude crashed into a brick wall. I’m usually the bubbly type but in this case I became more of the observer, embracing my detail oriented side. I mean it was worth it, the art that was displayed was breathtaking, hand made furniture with a modern twist and as if things couldn’t get better, Columbus’s very own designers displayed some of their art from their individual collections, from that point the whole room lit up.
The confidence from the models was contagious, as they glimmered and grabbed all the guests attention. The designers that were featured that evening were, Joan Madison, Juan Jose Sean-Ferreyros, Kelly Plas, Gerardo Encianas, Kevein Black, and Ashley wills. These designers just teased us with stunning pieces from their collections, just building up the anticipation for the final runway where they will share their inspiration and their art with all the fashion lovers in Columbus.
Look out for my next post, for my day 3 experience of FWC!
