Najaam Lee: Special Correspondent

Brian Goldson: Photographer

The anticipation in the air is thick and serious—seriously crowded!! There’s so many photographers I mean literally packed seats and the music selection between interludes are soo much better than the last 2 Days but, people are still filing into the Grand Ballroom at the Waldorf Astoria.  Its almost 4:00pm and the line up for this afternoon is Romero Bryan, Luis Machicao and Laurel Dewitt.

Romero Bryan: From everything that we saw yesterday I’m really excited to see this particular Designers collection-Romero Bryan came with High tops-long ponytails:

Romero really drew everyone into the show with music playing from India Aire which is just fabulous. His collection was very sensual, delicate of the female spirit was definitely defined through is collection.

Luis Machicao: This should be hot got a sneak peak and the models are rocking Mohawks so you know I cannot wait to see what is going to be delivered to all of us in attendance today:

This Show brought out the Indian and Punk-Rock influence with models strutting their stuff and the Mohawks are really just to die for! HAUTE! Is what I really can say to you right no this is totally cased Haute! (Note from Editor-in-Chief: I totally liked the concept of where this particular Designer was taking us on but, I really don’t feel that he met that link for me and that it left several things out for me)

Laureluxe by Laurel DeWitt: I’m ready for this show just like everyone else is sitting here like on pins and needles, I’m exactly the same way!! Its time for the first look to come out on the runway and OMG!!!!!!! Power music hit the room and out comes STRONG, MYSTERIOUS and POWERFUL women with chain link ponytails!! Yes you read that correctly I know just blew your freaking mind!!:

This show is AHHHHMAZZZINGGG!!!Not only does Najaam Lee our Special Correspondent feel this way all of us here editing this article are just blown away!! Per Najaam she died like 5 times and raised back up to see the collection!! The full-feather head and shoulder top with long panel skirt dress reminded me of Grace Jones, I truly enjoyed this show and collection it was exciting and empowering at the same time, you definitely have to wn a piece of Laureluxe!!

6PM: Janerations by Janina Stankiene and Sandra Baquero

We’re back for the next half of Couture Fashion Week and after such and exciting first half I’m looking forward to seeing what these next group of Designers will be showing!

Her Collection featured cocoa hooded thick sweaters with pleated check skirts, paired with black and gold boots. It was very nicely done.” (Editor-in-Chief Notes: I honestly feel that some of the pieces such as the fur jackets where done exceptionally well, along with some of the sweaters but, for us this collection fell very short for us and didn’t meet the mark that we have come so use to having and seeing during CFW)

Sandra Baquero: This is such a wonderful and lovely lady and I’m excited to see her collection:

 IMG_4055 IMG_4063 IMG_4069 IMG_4074 IMG_4086 IMG_4100 IMG_4118 IMG_4124 IMG_4126 IMG_4145 IMG_4170 IMG_4186 IMG_4202 IMG_4218 IMG_4224 IMG_4228 IMG_4248 IMG_4254 IMG_4272 IMG_4293 IMG_4324 IMG_4335 IMG_4351 IMG_4355 IMG_4418 IMG_4499

Sandra Baquero, brought the Royal London Soldiers to CFW! Turn on the March Mix music and out came solder-glamour, I love how she is introducing the hat the America and allowing it to be apart of the everyday look and not just for dressing up and going to the Horse Races or church. Najaam, also liked the Crème knit swing short dress paired with copper wedge boots. Najaam, thought the collection was very nice and that Sandra had great ideas and wearable, sellable pieces.

8:00PM: Alicat by Avril and Edwing D’Angelo

ALICAT: I thought the 6pm showcase was crowded well 8pm seems to be packed! I’m looking forward to seeing what this particular Designer is going to show us and what will be their Signature style, the show is about to start:

IMG_5162 IMG_4748 IMG_4762 IMG_4787 IMG_4798 IMG_4809 IMG_4827 IMG_4841 IMG_4867 IMG_4896 IMG_4911 IMG_4957 IMG_4958 IMG_4984 IMG_5015 IMG_5043 IMG_5064 IMG_5106 IMG_5133IMG_5719 

(Editor-in-Chief Notes: I love this collection, because I personally felt it had very strong lines and detailing that are feminine and the fabric choices are just beautiful and fluid. I love the jumpsuits that are polished, giving each garment its own life and energy just perfections!) Our Special Correspondent Najaam Lee feels; This showcase was very nice and both the men and women’s where paired with leopard spotted tams, cuffed chains around wrists and ankles beautiful simply put this collection is Beautiful!!

Here we are at the finale show of the evening and for CFW it’s the incredible Edwing D’Angelo! This is the MAN of the HOUR:

IMG_5681 IMG_5202 IMG_5212 IMG_5231 IMG_5237 IMG_5254 IMG_5281 IMG_5314 IMG_5320 IMG_5338 IMG_5350 IMG_5374 IMG_5410 IMG_5414 IMG_5482 IMG_5630 IMG_5642 IMG_5661 Now IMG_5665   Now you see why Edwing is the Designer to the Stars! Remember if you was with us Last CFW he had Vanessa Simmons, Dawn of Dirty Money and several other celebrities that walked in the show but, this time they didn’t walk in the show but they did show up and I mean some we didn’t think was so likely such as Royce from the Basketball Wives, Sharee of the Atlanta House Wives and even one of the MOB Wives showed up which by the way is my Sonya LaRae-Editor-in-Chiefs guilty pleasure:

IMG_4695 IMG_3708 IMG_4571 IMG_4593 Closing by: Sonya LaRae-Editor-in-Chief – I think we have had another Fabulous, Breathtaking and Awe Inspiring Couture Fashion Week!! I cannot believe that its over for another season and I’m putting the finale touches onto another incredible season!!
