So last week, I attended four different fashion shows. Most of which were …
However, the iiJin (pronounced e-gene) F/W16 collection was one of my absolute favs.
The entire collection was uh-mazing!
The fashion show was held at PIER 59, and even though I’ve lived here in NYC for my entire life, I’ve never actually went to the Piers, so I had to figure out how to get there. In the freaking cold!
But eventually, I figured it out and once I got there I knew it was going to be ten times better than the night before! Hell, the fact that I actually had a seat alone made it ten times better. LOL
No shade, no shade. I’m sorry y’all, but the night before was horrible! But whatever, that’s a different story for a different day!
After checking in and waiting for awhile, we all went upstairs, where we were faced with the task of finding our seat. (Totally easy, since mine was pretty close to the door. Lol)
The only thing that got on my nerves, was the fact that the DJ was playing snippets of songs. I’m sorry, but I’m a music person, so I need to hear the full song, or at least most of it. Don’t play five seconds of Formation and get me hyped up for nothing damn it!
This ah where we caribbean folks get the, “kill the DJ” line from. Seen? LOL
But seriously y’all, that’s literally my ONLY complaint from this show. I’m pretty sure it didn’t even bother anyone else. LOL
Everything else was UH-MAZING!
The collection, the models, the production of the actual show, the way everyone conducted themselves, everything.
Here’s a look at some of my favorite looks & models from iiJin’s F/W 16 collection:
I really like their Cyber Punk sweater! (So if anyone wants to buy me one, once they’re up for sale, I’m a Large! Unless they run small, then I’m an X-Large. And those boots! I know those wings are distracting, but those yellow and blue boots? I want em! *whispers* size 10 LOL)
But I guess I should just be happy with what I already have, right?
Hell, I still can’t believe I actually got something from the designer! Whooo!
My fam was hating on my new slippers, but guess what? I don’t care because I LOVE them!
(And since my father destroyed my last pair of house slippers, I’m glad these can’t fit him! LOL)
Hell, I might even wear these outside once it gets warmer. Don’t judge me!
Here’s what they look like:
(See how crappy my camera is? Ugh! Can’t wait to get a new phone. LOL)
Plus, I also got that cute tote bag (pictured above) that I can’t wait to use! So I’m definitely happy. Because I may not be able to afford anything else from this collection for awhile.
Anywho, the iiJin show was bawse! Run and tell that! LOL
It definitely started my Friday off on a good note. I was happy as hell all day because of this show.
You may see another post about iiJin soon, because it just so happens that I looked through their website and I’m in love with like everything! LOL
(I have a thing for cool shoes!)
But see, THIS is why I wanted to go to the “smaller” designer shows, because now I’ve found a really cool new designer that I can actually buy from! I’m so damn happy I was invited to go to this one! They’re definitely on my “brands to watch” list. (And birthday wish list. Lol)
