I Went To A Vogue Event And It Was Fabulous!

Vogue has to be one, if not, the most recognized name in the fashion industry. The publication has several different divisions in different countries, including: Spain, France, China and much more. The magazine has reported on fashion, beauty, culture, current events and much more for 130 years. They have worked with some of the top-named brands in the world and they continue to push the envelope time after time. I went to a screening of Vogue’s first ever runway show, which also doubled as a cocktail party. This event was to also celebrate their 130 year anniversary.

I’ve been working in the fashion industry for over a decade and have been to countless after parties for different shows, but this was different. Gasvenopart rooftop , located in Meatpacking NYC held the event. The venue was stunning – there was a flower arch, which provide for a gorgeous photo backdrop. The space was the perfect balance of warm and neutral colors – there was a display of lights that changed colors, and filled the room with blue and purple hues. There were several delicious appetizers – my favorite was the chicken skewers with chipotle mayo. In addition to countless hors d’oeuvres, there were two signature cocktails of the night – a spicy pineapple margarita and a pink Cosmo garnished with a royal purple hibiscus flower -the bar was stocked with prosecco and different wines.

I wore a $47 little black dress from Shein with a pearl neckline and black Pashion heels (which transforms into a flat from heels). I also have braids, which I wore in a ponytail. Not to brag, but I think I looked pretty chic.

The event was magnificent, the actual screening was fabulous! Vogue did an amazing job with making sure the show flowed seamlessly. The show opener was none other than the world renowned Serena Williams! As the show continued there were many familiar faces that graced the runway like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Carolyn Murphy, and Imaan Hammam. Howard University’s majorettes wowed the crowd with a phenomenal dance number. Lil Nas X performed and he looked really nice in an all silver outfit before he strolled down the catwalk. There were so many amazing moments!

I felt like I was truly a part of history: something bigger than myself. Vogue’s first runway show! I was in awe the entire time.
