NYFW: Venexiana Fall 2012

I'm a firm believer in karma-- what you put out there in the world is what you get back. Maybe it's the hippy inside of me that believes this, but I was taught this by my mother and I have seen proof of this in my own life. This was definitely proved to me this past season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week when I was surrounded by selfish people. I couldn't believe the attitude of entitlement around me-- woman fighting with security to get let it in early even if they had a standing room ticket, people stealing gift bags from the front row seats, people pushing and shoving on the standing line, etc.. It's the most ridiculous thing ever and I never want to be this way. I feel blessed enough even to get an opportunity to go to New York Fashion Week shows.

What does this have to do with the Venexiana Fall 2012 show? Well I was invited to the show but with a standing ticket, I waited online and when we were ushered in I grabbed the first empty seat in the back row that I could find. Well the two people in front of me were much taller then me so I couldn't see anything, I turned around to the girl behind me and told her that she could take my seat but I wasn't sure if she'll be able to see. Luckily for me the PR heard me and turned to me and was like "Oh honey do you want a front row seat?" How could I turn down that invite!? He promptly ushered me to a front row seat! Amazing and lucky. I got to see beautiful gowns close up. The details on the back of the dresses were really amazing-- one shoulder straps, draped backing, long trails. Her work is more couture then ready to wear. A lot of gowns that could easily be seen walking the red carpet.

  1. OMG!! That's so wonderful, congrats on your good karma, you totally deserve it and we get to see the wonderful results of it, so thanks for passing it forward!

    I do love this evening wear, I think that the dresses really bring back the gown in a classic way; they're beautiful and flattering without being overtly sexual or flashy.

  2. Wow, you're so lucky and I'm so so so jealous of you! A front row seat at NYFW! That must have been an unforgettable experience, I'm sure of that :)
