What an honor to be able to spend a day at the Coterie. It takes place at the Jacob and Javits Center. I could’ve spent every moment there from Sunday-Tuesday and still been in awe. Displays were gorgeous. I personally believe that the Fall of 2014 Fashion show was the most beautiful in years. There were so many vendors, I tried to take as many pictures as I could. The vendors were so friendly and upbeat. I had so many favorites. I loved the Theia collection, Carmen Marc Valvo, Terik Ediz, Mignon, and Decode 1.8, but I must say, my all time favorite was without any doubt Badgley Mischka! Their energy was palpable and upbeat. The staff was incredibly friendly. The collection was even more gorgeous up close. I had checked out their photo shoot and I have to say it was even more magical up close. Anyone would look amazing in one of their gowns. Badgley Mischka gowns are sophisticated without making you look heavy or bulky.
David Meister also caught my eye because his gowns were also practical, comfortable, simple, and yet very elegant.
Some of the gowns were from new designers abroad and it was exciting and refreshing to see such a diverse collection. Overall, it was an amazing day. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
