FASHION STAR FOR H&M

April 27, 2012










































     Tuesday night I was invited by my lovely cousin (Fashionistanygirl) to the Fashion Star for H&M Event on 5th Ave.  First off, can I just note how beautiful the decor has been these past couple of weeks at certain H&M stores. The jungle/island feel really adds to the shopping experience. Plus between the conscious collection and the fashion against aids collection that just dropped yesterday, most of my money these next couple of weeks will belong to H&M.

Second, I hate to admit that I have only seen a few episodes of the show, but that will change. For those who haven't watched, each week designers compete with each other to create clothes that are restricted in time, materials and theme. At the end they have a chance to be offered a buy from Macy's, Saks 5th Ave and H&M. Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos act as the design mentors and offer their knowledge and input. 

Both Nicole Richie and John Varvatos attended the event, along with the contestants and buyer Nicole Christie. DJ Mia Moretti rocked the packed 3-story store and got everyone dancing while hitting up the photo booth, munching on desserts, sipping on champagne, and enjoying their 25% off anything in the store discount. A part of the ground floor was sectioned off with mannequins dressed in the winning “Fashion Star” designs bought and sold by H&M.

Nicole Richie was adorable as usual while chatting and taking photos with fans. She looked stunning in a winter kate dress and hair pulled tightly in a bun. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the contestants and buyer Nicole Christie, and after a few minutes I instantly became a fan.

Sadly the event came to end, but what an event it was. Nothing says a great fashion night like food, drinks, icons, designers and shopping!

ALL PHOTOS WERE TAKEN BY ME UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE
