Red and Black Ensemble at Oscar de la Renta
It was one of the craziest experience when i was rushing to Oscar de la Renta show in New York. I was running about 25 minutes late! New York is known to start shows late because they are all over Manhattan and the traffic is no joke. As i was getting close to the front of the Prince George hotel, where the show was taking place, I did not see anyone else rushing to the door. Instead, there was a sea of photographers that surrounded me trying to get a shot. So, i assumed that the show started and stopped to pose for them for a couple mins.
After a little shoot, i decided to ask if the show already started and the security at the door said: “No, hurry up!” As i ran in the room, I found myself right on the runway, all the guests already seated, patiently waiting for the show to begin. One of the girls from PR team quickly escorted me to the seat and as i was trying to catch my breath and understand what is happening the lights turned off, music started playing and we saw an opening number.
I was trying to get a couple of photos from the 2nd row as elegant ensembles were parading down the runway, I realized that every shot had red hair in it! It took me a second to realize that I am seating behind Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour…
Oscar de la Renta’s spirit hovered in the ballroom, the collection was timeless and very special. I felt so honored to have had an opportunity to watch the show.
As we were exiting the hotel after the show, I was walking next to Anna Wintour who took of her sunglasses, looked at me and we smiled at each other…

Repping Toronto on the Streets of New York
On day 5 of New York Fashion Week I decided to have fun with the sportswear trend and opted for a comfy outfit. Last season when i was in New York in February, All Star NBA game was taking place in Brooklyn. Kyle Lowry #7 was the only player to be picked from Raptors to join the game. So, i grabbed his All Star jersey and paired it with light blue dress pants that i tucked in high socks matching my Adidas originals.And of course, repping Toronto that day wearing my OVO 6 hat.
Thank you Allens_Eyes for this awesome short video, it was a complete surprise when i saw it online as i was 100% sure he was just snapping photos!

I have been a fan of Zac Posen for a long time. In February, I was lucky to attend his show when he celebrated women of color and Naomi Campbell slayed down the runway surprising everyone in the finale. This season, I could not wait to watch the show again. The collection was breathtakingly beautiful and after the show i got to go backstage where the designer was talking about the inspiration and his plans for the future. I got to meet Zac Posen as well and let me tell you, he is a sweetheart!

It was so much fun to wear such a bold dress! As i was coming out of the DKNY show at the World Trade Centre a see of streetstyle photographers surrounded me.
