If you missed my Insta coverage of the Kate Spade New York Fall 2018 Presentation – don’t fret. Thought I would share some snaps that I took during the show.
When I got to Masonic Hall lovely ladies were taking your name to check you in and to also check your coat. I kept mine because I was frozen solid. As I walked in a bit further Isla Fisher and Lucy Hale were posing for a million pictures.
The actual presentation was on floor 3 – so you either waited for the elevator (which is what the majority did – or you can take the stairs.)
As you enter you’re almost blinded by the hundreds of lights on stage that illuminated the entire space. I loved the horseshoe looking lights with spades. Insanely clever.
When I got there (maybe 15 mins after it started) it was already filled with people. You can hear some cool country style music from the band Joseph. They were up in the mezzanine seating. They had a cute old fashion bar set up where you could snag sparkling waters or your fair share of sweet champagne. They had servers passing around yummy chocolate/almond cookies – I swear I only had one.
Going solo was kinda interesting and I’ll tell you why – I was actually fearless. Jamie Chung walked in and I said hello – fast forward 15 mins and we already talked about how we styled our outfits, our relationship with Fossil and how she’s looking for someone to help her with her Atlanta rental while she’s there filming. Oh and we’re also from the Bay so we touched on that, too. We played the old style raffle together and both win a Spade pin and then Lucy Hale walked up. So we chatted some more. I mean SERIOUSLY?
Thing is – in a place surrounded by influential people, you have to realize you’re also there for a reason. NOT just because you know the coolest chick that works at Kate Spade New York BUT because she and her team think I am just as cool as everyone else to be there. So I own it.
Next up was Natalie from Stranger Things and I will say I might have come in hot because I am obsessed with her show and she is (with her team of two) actually quite shy.
The actual Kate Spade New York presentation was beautiful – the models were decked out in denim (hellooo! speaking my language) which came from their Nashville inspired theme. There was fringe, animal print and indigo hues.
I loved all the leather boots, too. The models had natural hair and make-up, except for some jewels on the occasional eyelid. I could have used all the Fall coats in boots in their presentation, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe I can wear a few to the Spring 2019 presentation?
I spotted @taza from a distance but didn’t get a chance to say hello. It was a total whirlwind of two hours and I stayed till the bitter end.
Thank you, Kate Spade New York for hosting me. I was truly honored 🙂
