There is nothing better than fashion, great food and a glass of champagne. Saks used this trifecta on Tuesday in NYC to raise money for City Meals on Wheels. They set the stage for a fantastic panel discussion involving some of the most fashion-forward (not to mention some of our favorite gals): Wonder-woman celeb stylist Annabel Tollman, Il Cantinori’s own Nicola Kotsoni, and the Veronicas with NY Mag editor, Jenny Kang, moderating.
A party as fabulous as this one always has a solidified message lingering but this time around, it was front and center, and only fitting for everyone to share what it means to have fashion and family among the staples in their lives. Yes, we all love our families, jobs, apartments, and lives…well maybe not all of us, but at the end of the day, we all need to celebrate who we are and what we do. It defines us… fashion takes us through the course of our day and the complexity of every woman’s life is why it needs to be made more simple. It’s why we make the clothes we make and it’s why all women can inspire others…
Jenny Kang asked us questions about our personal style and how we can all ooze confidence, effortless elegance and the “I-can-handle-whatever-you-throw-at-me” kind of attitude. For some, that may be spiked 6-inch heels and for others that may be a feminine tweed suit. For VMB, it means taking 10 minutes out of her energizer-bunny mornings to gather her uniform for the day. We like to mix it up depending on who you are… creating your own look with our clothes. It is a lifestyle for women who want those 10 minutes to have fun and dress up (or dress down) but also want to make sure that your wardrobe is easy, not complicated and intimidating!
Thanks to Saks, the lovely leading ladies and Il Cantinori (our kitchen away from home) for a night to remember, with some bubbly to boot. Enjoy some snapshots from the event ~
