NYC & LA LIVE Fashion Week was amazing, featuring an array of internatioal and local fashion designers, with a creative talent that was beyond #FABULOUS.
With the location (4 West 43rd Street) PACKED OUT, the day started with RISE (consisting of Fashion Avenue News Luxury Brand and BB Magazine) featuring a Live Mannequin Showroom. This blockbuster event was open to designers participating in the NYC Live Fashion Week Show, the Best of the Best. The purpose of the showroom was to bring the consumer and designers together, allowing the consumer become the buyer. Sofia Davis, Editor-in-Chief of Fashion Avenue News says “It’s time for change, how many times are designers going to pay for fashion week show with no results? With the Live Mannequin Showroom we bring the consumer directly to the designer, where they can make purchases, ask questions etc. ” The Live Mannequin Showroom proved a success as a few desginers sold garments directly to the public.
BLING DARLING – A hightlight of the evening was Bling Darling, the creative baby of Sofia Davis, EIC of Fashion Avenue News. Sofia controlled the mic and took the crowd, “OLD SKOOL” with a legendary rap intro to the Bling Darling segment of the show. The crowd were on their FEET, and loved every minute of it.
The NYC & LA Live Fashion Week show is the creative genius of Executive Producer William Michael Reid to bring together designers from across the globe. Desginers came from as far away as Africa, Thailand, Germany, Atlanta, California and further. There were celebrity designers such as Dwight Eubanks, giving you a couture collection and taking fur to another level.
The Hair & Make Up team were excellent. For the Live Mannequin Showroom was Beauty Director Picasso leading the team and Paul Mitchell for NYC Live.

Brown was the lead photogher and Pit Master, DJ Uneek handled the sound, Paul A. Walker ran the Step and Repeat, with many other Press/Media in attendance.
