Event Recap: Essence Magazine's 24/7 Style Breakfast

One of the highlights of New York Fashion Week for me so far was attending Essence's "24/7 Style" breakfast at Strand Hotel on Monday. The intimate gathering hosted by Essence Editor-in-Chief, Constance C.R. White, was the perfect way to kick-off and celebrate the beauty of black women in fashion. 

Designer Mimi Plange showcased her Fall 2012 collection, which featured breathtakingly beautiful, modern, and sophisticated silhouettes. Three stunning models strutted their stuff in camel-colored, cream, magenta, and burgundy ensembles throughout the venue for up-close viewing. Plange, known for her luxury, chic and sleek womenswear definitely delivered.

Not only were attendees treated to the lovely Plange designs, but were also pampered with manicures from our favorite BG nail polish pioneers - Ginger + Liz Colour Collection. Plus, we were also gifted with crystal bracelets provided by Swarovski Elements.

The morning was filled with food, fashion, and friendly networking, which is always great! Be sure to check out for all your FW needs, including street styles, photo diaries, and more. 

Have you been attending any Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week festivities?

Sounds like this was a fun event. No, I haven't attended any fashion week events since I live in LA.
