Day 2 was my first full day of this fashion week and it was a great one. I started the day with a visit to a PR company showroom, and then an event at Drybar hosted by DL1961 denim. It was so nice to get my hair done – one last thing I had to worry about on a busy day!
Following my meeting and the DL1961 event, I had three runway shows on day 2. All three were really different from one another and all incredibly cool.

Fashion Hong Kong was such a cool runway show because it featured 4 designers in one show- giving the audience a wide variety of fashion trends. The first three above are, in order, 112 mountainyam, anveglosa & heaven please. I loved seeing a number of designers/collections all from Hong Kong – it was such a fun experience.

The Fall/Winter Nonie collection was full of layered looks, minature prints, and lots of earth tones. This is the second season I have been able to attend the Nonie show (catch my recap on her collection last year here). I was so excited to check out her collection last year since Nonie is a Canadian designer (yay!) and she is loved by Meghan Markle – a definite style inspiration of mine.
The ‘royally loved’ designer wowed again this year with her fall/winter 2019 collection. I love her menswear-inspired pieces, the drapey fits are perfect for a casual fall look that oozes simplicity and effortless style.
Chiara Boni La Petite Robe is a brand known for stunning cocktail and evening dresses (See my post from the fall here). The fall/winter 19 collection was no exception to that, as the above three looks clearly show. I love the sweetheart necklines and the mix of pastel and jewel tones. The first dress above was one I was particularly intrigued by; it reminds me of a 1960s flight attendant meets sleek modern spy. Definitely a dress I want to add to my wardrobe!
What surprised me this year though was not the beautiful dresses, which I expected, but the unique matching sets! How cool are these below sets! As someone who lives in pant suits at work, I love the idea of bringing a pant style outfit into my cocktail attire. The middle teal blue velvet is probably my favorite look from this year’s collection.
After the Chiara Boni show, I went to an event with Aveda. I have been so lucky to work with Aveda during New York Fashion week as I’ve been a fan of them for ages. You all know my best friend Maddie who is my hair stylist; well she is an Aveda stylist (the salon she opened last year, Salon Nine, is an Aveda salon) so I have been using Aveda products for as long as I can remember! I love the shampure and blue malva shampoo/conditioners, and just recently was gifted by Aveda the new blow dry spray that helps dry hair faster and I can’t wait to try it!
After day 2 of Fashion Week Aveda had a little party for some bloggers and other fashion week attendees and it was great to unwind and catch up with fellow bloggers. I also got my hair curled again so it looked fresh for my New York night out!
That’s a wrap on day two 🙂
