Every year I look forward to attending the CFDA Awards. It’s a tremendous occasion to celebrate the incredible fashion community we have here in NYC and recognize both established and up and coming talent in our industry.
The Awards are held every June and something about the timing always gives me the feeling of school letting out for the summer, which naturally invites a bit of nostalgia for the year behind us and excitement for the summer ahead. Having spent the last few months on the West Coast on maternity leave, this year it was especially fun to hit the red carpet, reconnect with dear friends, and see some familiar faces.
Dressing my post-partum body presented some new design considerations so I had this off-the-shoulder tiered gown custom made in navy blue lace (don’t fret, it will be available for sale soon!). It’s strategically designed to conceal any accidental leakage (nursing mamas, you know what I'm talking about) and as I endeavor to return to my pre-pregnancy figure, I'm all about highlighting the neck, shoulders and collarbone- they never let you down.
Special thanks to my no-fail glam squad: Mara Kadish, Kate Carreta and Kuma Make-Up as well as Tana Chung for my glorious earrings. And a shout out to Dollface who proved she really is a girl’s best friend!
