First thing’s first: whoever decided that New York Fashion Week should take place in February was high as a kite. Having just survived the snowpocalypse, my friends and I were forced to brave freezing cold temperatures in the name of fashion. Luckily, Baciano just sent over this ah-mazing faux fur coat to keep me warm and cozy throughout the weekend (c/o.)
The AWOM Club fashion presentation was lead by designer, Sarah Akiba. After the loss of her father to lung cancer in 2013, Sarah created a non-profit to help those whom have lost a loved one. With that came the creation of AWOM Club- an acronym for Angel Watching Over Me. It’s a lifestyle brand that integrates a fashionable approach with a touching story, and a portion of the proceeds are donated to the non-profit.
Sarah put on a fabulous event with a killer DJ, unlimited rosé, and of course: amazing fashion designs. The color palette of army greens and neutrals was right up my alley, and the sleek, modern silhouettes were right on trend. Overall, a night well-spent! Check out the collection at AWOM.Club.
