Hey guys! As I mentioned before, I’m currently in New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and having an amazing time. I’ve been attending shows at the Lincoln Center, fashion parties, events, and the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference.

As most of you know, last night Fashion’s Night Out took place all over the world as the largest shopping extravaganza. In collaboration with FNO Miami and the Beacon Council, I celebrated the evening in the Design District where fashionistas gathered with luxury brands such as En Avance, Maison Martin Margiela, Marni, Scotch & Soda, and Sebastien James. In addition to the extravagant fashion, live music by Afrobeta and DJ Mike Sike sounded through the streets as guests sipped on cocktails courtesy of the Miami Design District.
My first stop was at The District Factory where an outdoor Instagram wall featured select key fashion players in Miami. Many of my photos were selected as the face of Miami fashion, so I was excited about that! The District Factory had some fabulous designer pieces and deals, including Olivia + Joy handbags. As part of the complete FNO experience, guests could receive a mini-makeover complete with makeup application, manicures, hair styling, and accessory picks prior to snapping photos in the photo booth provided by Fashion Koncept.
My final stop was at the VIP private rooftop party hosted by Grey Goose and Soho House Group, which was held at the top of the Moore building with a live DJ and manicures c/o Soho House Group.
One of my favorite stores was En Avance, located in the heart of the Design District. I had the opportunity to interview store owner, Karen Quinones, a worldly sweetheart!
What are your thoughts on Fashion’s Night Out?
It’s nice to see people coming out and supporting the efforts of fashion. Since it’s a pop-off for the season, it’s great to see everyone getting excited about Fall fashion.
Can you tell me about your store and what types of items you carry?
I carry a lot of global designers so I travel and purchase items from all over – London, Milan, Spain, and even Istanbul. I try to carry young, innovative designers so when someone comes in my store and they purchase a dress it won’t be found in Saks or any other store. I also work with designers who create items specifically for my store. Since this is my 20th anniversary, I have a lot of limited edition pieces as well!
What’s your favorite Fall trend this year?
Hmm…how about color? I’m really loving pops of bright colors, stoplight red, clementine, neon colors, and I also think navy is the new black.
Thanks so much, Karen and I love your store!
