Fashion Week in Manhattan is over, but our City is made up of Five Boroughs, and in Brooklyn, talented designers are still showing their Spring 2010 collections. Last night in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene area, a fashionable crowd (including designer Malan Breton and Loris Diran) gathered to see some of what Brooklyn’s fashion stars have to offer.
One of the designers who showed a collection on the runway last night was the beautiful and talented Esther Nash. She’s the sort of woman who can do so many things well, but fashion is her passion. Esther is a graduate of the prestigious, Art and Fashion school of New York City. Her signature is a unique, hand-decorated line of primarily denim-centric, sophisticated, hip, and wearable clothes called Baby Doll Sugar Daddy. The inexhaustible Nash designs jewelry, accessories and clothing, while also working as a model and actress! Esther began owning and operating her own fashion retail stores when she was still just a teenager, her designs have been featured in her own, and in dozens of other runway shows around the Country. Her fashions have also been featured on the HBO series Sex and the City.
The ponchos add a colorful touch to everything– just throw on on and you have an instant update in your wardrobe! Plus, ponchos have the added advantage of being warm as well as wonderfully chic. The ponchos in Esther Nash’s Collection featured luxe touches such as long fringes, and touches of fur.
Brooklynites like to show their love and make some noise! Young performers offering a variety of musical styles representing the borough’s diverse sounds, included this amazing, 13 year old boy whose rap “Don’t Look At My Mom” nearly brought the house down!
This lovely young model strutted her stuff with attitude down the runway and for the photographers. Watch for her in a few years on the cover of Vogue…she’s going to be a star!
