What a fun way to spend a morning during New York Fashion Week – A fashion insider breakfast hosted by HSN in their style suite in the Empire Hotel. Every season HSN hold a style suite for fashion’s elite to check out their current collections by fashion influencers turned designers! This season I had the wonderful opportunity to interview two fabulous ladies who designed even more fabulous accessories collections. My first interview of the day was with stylist extraordinaire June Ambrose. Her collection of shoes were so beautiful and completely on trend yes with a classic approach to sophisticated style. I just loved chatting with her about her line, life and her adorable daughter. We had a lot of fun during this preview and although I did not get to record it on film, the pictures below speak volumes! The interview I did get to film was with Handbag enthusiast Tina Craig of renown fashion blog – The Bag Snob. Her luxurious yet affordable collection “Snob Essentials”, if perfect for every girl on the go who wants to look fabulous without breaking the bank and who wants the best quality in manufacturing. Her versatile hand bags can be worn day or evening and many of the chain straps can be removed to wear as necklaces. Her inspiration for this collection came from classic french style and her love of handbags began at a very early age by when stuffing all she could into her grandmother’s beautiful purse collection. To hear more about her collection for HSN watch the video below
Other HSN celebrity collections that were on display at the lounge were by Fern Mallis, Giuliana Rancic, Hal Rubenstein, and Iris Apfel. It was such a pleasure to speak with all of them and learn a little bit about what makes their collections special to them. It was also fun chatting with Bevy Smith and Sasha Charnin Morrison of US Weekly about fashion week and beyond with both of them generously offering me top wonderful advice to stay on top of my fashion game!
I had so much fun learning about all of these spectacular brands! Thank you so much to all of the designers, HSN, & HL Group for inviting me to attend! I can’t wait till next season for more HSN designer collection fun!
