It was early February when I got an email from PLITZS Fashion Marketing PR team. It was a delightful invitation for PLITZS New York City Fashion Week Designer Showcase at the Warwick Hotel. The showcase featured 36 emerging designers on a two-day February 10 – 11, 2012. After a few email exchanges, we were ready to go there and cover the event (it’s been a while since we last came to NYC to cover the LES Runway show), but some urgent matters prevented us from actually taking the flight to NYC :(
Nevertheless, from the 36 designers that were showcased in the PLITZS NYC Fashion Week 2012, I narrowed down my favorites (after reading about their background and their past work) to 7 designers. Of course, with all the Fall Fashion Week frenzy in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, I couldn’t help but developing a specific preference of what styles I gravitate towards for the next fall season. I then asked for PLITZS’ permission to post my review (despite my absence) and send me the pictures of the designers’ work during the fashion show. And finally last week, PLITZS was really gracious on giving me the organized pictures (Tishema, you’re simply the best!) of the designers.
