|The chic, sophisticated space at Fig & Olive in the Meatpacking District is an awesome location for a NYFW event.|
Last Sunday was a whirlwind of fashion and cocktails, as Tracy and I attended the New York Fashion Week party for NYC-based designer, Georgine.
Hosted by Fig & Olive in the Meatpacking District, we were greeted by a gorgeous venue and three alternating live models showing off Georgine’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection.
Next spring, fashionistas can look forward to some beautiful pieces and accessories. Instead of the typical pastel color palette, Georgine focused on shades of periwinkle, deep neutrals like khaki and army green, and bold touches of yellow and candy pink. Her fabric prints included beautiful florals, an updated version of paisley, and streamlined color blocking – all which melded perfectly with the T-strap pumps the girls wore. It was fun to see such a great balance between playful and “prim and proper,” as models were dressed in ladylike dresses and skirts, collared shirts, shorts, and gorgeous spring coats.
While enjoying the live fashion display, Fig & Olive offered several delicious cocktails (I did my best to have a strawberry-topped Prosecco drink in hand the entire time), and waiters passed around some of the most amazing hors d’oeuvres, including shrimp skewers and truffle mushroom croquettes. I loved how the venue looked chic and sophisticated with soaring ceilings and concrete fixtures, yet incorporated rustic Mediterranean elements – endless rows of olive oil were displayed on the shelves in the back of the restaurant.
Overall, it was another enjoyable New York Fashion Week event with all the necessities – models, a fantastic fashion line, and an endless stream of cocktails. Also, I’m not kidding about the furry fanny packs. I’m totally going to be sporting one next season.
