I checked out the scene at Glasslands last night for Williamsburg Fashion Weekend. Let me just start by saying that seeing some of the fashion elite bouncing around in their 5 inch heels at this venue was thoroughly entertaining. I showed up late, flats in tow, at the fault of currently going through Brooklyn roommate search hell– which reminds me, if you want to live in a beautiful Bushwick loft, holler at this girl.
Anyway, fabulous host Arthur Arbit kicked off the night introducing the ‘Burg friendly models of Mandate of Heaven. Although an hour late, designer/model Carissa Ackerman’s grandma chic meets scandalous onesies tickled the fancy of the patient crowd. Much to my delight, I guess, I somehow managed to position myself in perfect viewing of lots ‘o sexy buns.
Next up was Nettie Tiso featuring super sleek Racecar! for men and flirty Nettie for women. Her lines seemed to race by (pun unintentional) after Mandate’s never ending hot bod parade. But a short line is what you get when everything is hand sewn. Serious good stuff.
Trisha McBride & Papusza Couture put on an unorthodox show, but isn’t that the point of hosting a fashion party at a warehouse by the East River?
Check out Day 2 of the show tonight at Glasslands– starting at 8:30pm (hopefully). See the likes of Treehouse Brooklyn’s Sirius*, Sodafine’s Erin Wekerle, and Arbit’s own King Gurvy. Oh, and Celebration is gonna be there too! 8 Bucks at the Door, y’all!
