Carlton Jones Collection NYFW 2018 Pre Season

Words cannot express what a gift it was to personally be invited by Carlton Jones to preview the Carlton Jones Collection Pre NYFW 2018 on his birthday January, 10th, 2018.  Due to prior obligations in Toronto, I could not attend.  I first met THE ICONIC Wardrobe Designer, Celebrity Stylist and Fashion Director of World Bride Magazine in 2014, in Harlem while I was working in NYC for Singer Belinda Munro’s performance. We were outside when his neighbor, Belinda Munro introduced us, I will never forget the whisky colored leather luggage that he had in his hand!

It was an evening of fun, beauty, cocktails and glamor when designers Cesar Galindo and Carlton Jones each showed a preview of their Collections.

Most shows have a traditional runway in the middle with designated seats on each side but these visionaries opted for an interactive memorable approach!  Held at Punto, guests were treated to beauty bars for manicures, makeup applications and if that wasn’t enough, a braid bar!

Luxshop4u 2017 Wardrobe Stylist Nominee

I would like to thank each and every one of you who continue to support my body of work and journey!  I grew up going to private showrooms and textile stores with The Upholstery King and my sister Pauline click the story about my Jamaican dad and his influence to fashion here on http://luxshop4u.com/upholstery-king/  !  Thank you for nominating me for a 2017  Boston Fashion Award in the Wardrobe Stylist Category!

 

 

 

I enjoy working behind the scenes and started at a very young age with my family business in Toronto, Canada.  My late sister Pauline was a fashion designer, I was the model and stylist and buyer in both of  her companies  (Terminal Design, Eubanks Design and her wedding planning).  I was afforded the opportunity to work with many artists in the Reggae, Dancehall, Hip hop, RnB scene and Music Executives.  We often volunteered our time behind the scenes supporting other fashion designers for Fashion Incub and other fashion events in Toronto.  Many years later I continue to do what I love here in Boston and worldwide working with touring Grammy Nominated artists and local fashion designers.
