On of my favorite events during New York Fashion Week, was Vogue’s Runway Retreat event. It was a fabulous networking lounge, which was held at Bar Boulud, right across from the fashion tents at Lincoln Center. At the event, I mingled with fashionistas, bloggers, and the team members of the fashion brands which partnered with Vogue for the event. I sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicious bites, as I learned more about each one of the brands that featured their products at the event.

Brahmin had their gorgeous collection of Fall handbags, which I’ve written about in previous posts. The colors are styles are stunning for Fall. I was able to choose my favorite fall leather cuff, customized by Brahmin. There were so many options to pick from, but my favorite was the red leather, and gold cuff bracelet. I’ve loved accessorizing with my fun new cuff, and it compliments so many of my fall outfits. Brahmin’s cuff collection would be perfect for gifts to give friends or loved ones. Check out their rest of their Fall collection on their site.

Tom’s featured their footwear and eyewear collections. The Toms brand is admirable because of their One for One campaign. The company matches every pair of shoes purchased, and donates that pair to a child in need. The same is true for their eyewear collection. For every pair purchased, Toms helps restore sight to a person in need. I loved exploring their Fall shoe collection. My favorite style is the Navy Suede Desert Wedges. I was mpressed by their eyewear collection as well. The styles were vintage, and glamorous at the same time. I love the Margeaux sunglasses in Black and Tortoise, and once I tried them on, it because quite difficult to part with them. I’ll definitely be adding this style to my wish list.

The beauty brand, Urban Decay was giving complimentary make overs, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I’ve always been in love with their products, and use the Naked Eyeshadow Palette daily. It’s a life changer. I was introduced to another product that has become a favorite, the Revolution Lipstick in color F-Bomb. It is a perfect, vibrant red for Fall.

I’ve made many friends, wonderful connections, and have been introduced to incredible brands at each and every event that Vogue hosts. Their team is fabulous and a true pleasure to work with.

I hope you take a moment and check out each one of these brands. I’d love to hear your thoughts, as well as your favorite styles and products for the Fall season.
