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!
