Couture Fashion Week was founded in 2005 by Andres Aquino. CFW presents a series of couture and luxury fashion shows in New York City and other selected cities. The Starlit Path was front row covering the event + got to see some amazing designs! Designers such as Vo Viet Chung, Andres Aquino, Jill Setah, Lourdes Atencio + Antoinette Piesche were among my personal favourites. See the full list of designers here. See the Couture Fashion Week’s YouTube Channel here, their Blog here + Press coverage here. The event took place at The Crowne Plaza in Times Square New York.
After studying in New York, I arrived home in South Africa inspired and changed. I love New York! Every single day felt like I was in a fairytale. The flight to New York from South Africa is 14 hours. I can honestly say I was welcomed into the city with open arms. I’d always imagined New York to be an intimidating place. I was thinking “Sex in the City” and famous stars like Beyonce and Jay Z walking the streets on the flight over. Not to mention that it’s the financial capital of the world – the Wall Street Stock Exchange sounds scary. But I was pleasantly surprised with how friendly the people were and how do-able the city was.
