Some things are tourist attractions for a reason. Like the Empire State Building. I had no idea what I was in for. All the movies, all the hype about the romantic-ness of this particular spot made me curious, no doubt. Even so, my expectations were far surpassed when I stood up there looking over the whole city. Seriously took my breath away!

The shows on the agenda for the day were Concept Korea, Reem Acra, and KaufmanFranco.
The Concept Korea runway showcased mini-collections by 4 designers. All had their own individual aesthetics. This dress was part of a fashion-forward, streamlined collection. I loved the slight structure in the pieces and the crisp, black and white color scheme.
I absolutely adored these three Reem Acra pieces. The whole collection had a Hollywood glam vibe. From shimmering fabrics, to sequin decals, and sheer materials, the outfits were just gorgeous. The polka dots kept things playful and light.
KaufmanFranco absolutely blew my mind. As soon as I saw the tailored jackets hit the runway, I knew we were in for a great show. They were structured beautifully and were absolutely a class act. Another highlight of the show was the intertwining straps on the bodices of a few of the dresses. The asymmetry was very well thought-out; it was a really striking element. And the show-stopper was the sequinned-print long-sleeved gown. Absolutely beautiful!
