Pyer Moss gambles and wins

It has been a year since Pyer Moss invited Fashion Week to Weeksville, the historic black neighborhood in Brooklyn. Last year's second installment in “American, Also,” a three-part series of collections addressing the erasure of African-American narratives in popular culture, the moving show was hailed as one of the best of the season and positioned the brand squarely in the New York spotlight. So when Haitian-American creative director Kerby Jean-Raymond decided to go on hiatus last season, shortly after winning the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, many wondered if he could keep the momentum going. With the Pyer Moss name in bright lights at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn last night, Jean-Ray

Urge the Fight: The Key to Self-Discipline Part I

What does it take to be successful? How can you separate yourself from the pack? What are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals? There are many answers to these questions, but without self-discipline, your journey will be filled with more roadblocks and setbacks than anticipated. By practicing self-discipline, we gain a giant advantage when faced with difficult times. Where one person may give up and submit to life’s temptations, you will stay true to your path and reach your destination with ease. Self-discipline is defined as the ability to pursue one’s desires despite temptations to abandon those ideals. You are going to be tempted along your journey with things that caus

Avoiding Common Pitfalls and Flat-out, Bad Trainers

Personal training and the fitness industry have evolved from their infant years. Recently, the fitness industry has seen an explosion in growth. There are currently 2,000 companies, including nonprofits, within the United States of America that operate nearly 30,000 fitness centers with a combined annual revenue of approximately $22 billion. This explosion has helped lead to the evolution of personal training and fitness, which has resulted in both positive and negative qualities. Both fields are meant to inspire individuals through directed exercise and workouts to attain levels of fitness and health that they never thought imaginable. However, the majority of trainers and facilities fa

Saturn: The Planet Most Feared

“If you’re going through Hell, then keep going!” – Winston Churchill Traditional astrology is the study of a “natal chart,” which posits that the exact date and time of our coming into existence has a profound influence on all of the significant events in our life story. These events are predictable during periods of our lives in the eyes of astrology—although not through exact dates—and if we study the movement of our signs (or stars) as they transit the planets, we can navigate through these life events with more ease and less panic. These occurrences can reflect favorable transits in our chart: a marriage, the birth of a child, a move to a foreign land or career prominence. In my

Harvest: The Wonder of Making Wine

It is that time of the year: autumn. When the heat of summer slowly subsides and the fruits of our labor are heavy and ripe with maturity and succulent flavors awaiting the harvest. This is the last push before we reap the rewards of our hard work. When we can wipe the sweat off our brows and rest our weary bones in the comfort of our warm abodes to recharge during the long nights and short days of winter until the next year’s spring thaw. And of course, part of those rewards is the pleasure of what’s in the wine glass. The cultivation of the wine grape vines is a

The Connected Catwalk

In the dynamic world of fashion, technology is increasing its footprint every day. Brands like Rent the Runway, Moda Operandi and Amazon are integrating new tools into their platforms to make customer experiences seamless and enjoyable. Enterprise software provider SAP is also expanding its presence in the fashion industry, as its technology hits the runway for the third time in September, showcasing tech-enabled designs and a newly enhanced interactive runway app at New York Fashion Week (NYFW). This year SAP partnered with Cirque du Soleil, the world leader in art and entertainment, and Fashion-Tech designer and innovator Anouk Wipprecht, to create the first-ever tech-enhanced designs. T

Everything's in the Details

So take your pick from the catwalks and have next autumn's handbag trends down pat. A new crop of bag trends is about to make the transition to fall much more enticing.

From doubling up at once to smaller-than-ever micro bags to shearling details, this season's best handbags are anything but basic. Straight from the runways, these are the top trends to know—and start shopping—ahead of this season.

More than a Runway Show at NYFW

Officially, by edict of the CFDA, New York Fashion Week closed Wednesday with Marc Jacobs’ show. But since no one is the boss of fashion week, just like no one’s the boss of an unruly 3-year old, designers kept showing and fashionistas kept trekking to see collections well into Sunday, the day “the people” decided would be the close of New York Fashion Week. Whether it was high profilers like Jacobs and Tom Ford or strivers like Hope Wade and Ikaikai’s Dominque Bones-Lark, designers grappled with how to connect with a changing consumer. Shoppers are inordinately interested in two things: social issues and buying clothes when the need hits them. Shows are a necessary part of the creative pro

NYFW Highlights SS2020

This year, New York Fashion Week was announced as the most politically woke fashion week ever, and they did not fail to meet expectations. From the political statements of Prabal Gurung on the runway to inclusivity in the show’s castings—most of it credited to Rihanna and her lingerie line Savage x Fenty—we can plainly see in 2019 where the seeds for change were planted in the fashion world. With the taping of her lingerie fashion show for Amazon Prime, Rihanna made history, giving us an unprecedented event that she defined as a “fashion musical.” With Victoria’s Secret Fashion show no longer televised, Savage x Fenty is filling the gap in a greater, more current revolutionary way where e

Ralph's Club: Open One Night Only

Welcome to Ralph’s Club, only open for one night. And what a dazzling establishment it is. America’s ultimate aspirational lifestyle designer, Ralph Lauren, didn’t just rent a room for his show – he built an entire black-and-white Art Deco-inspired nightclub in a former bank on Wall Street and asked his 230 guests to keep costuming to the same colors. From the ornate, three-tiered chandeliers to the sunrise mirrors, silvered columns and skyscraper-lit lights, his team created a Gatsby-esque after-hours hotspot. Only the original double-curved staircase remained un-Ralphed. Several hundred guests, including Cate Blanchett, Mandy Moore and Henry Golding, sat at tables imbibing and eating with

J. Lo Wins Milan; Fashion Finishes Second

The moment that ate Milan Fashion Week occurred at the end of the Versace show. People had been promised a special something, but no one knew what it was. The lights went down, a soundtrack crescendo began to build, and then — Jennifer Lopez! Age 50! In a new version of the jungle print dress she wore to the Grammys in 2000. You know, the one that was cut down to her navel and up to her crotch, and set off so many digital searches back in the day that, in the myth of the Internet and fashion, it is said Google created image search because of it (a more plausible version of the story is that it was part of the reason; a big part, sure, but still — a part). The dress had been given a bit of

Make a Show-Stopping Entrance at the Opera

Story by Kenneth Carrion de los Condes Photography by Claire Barrett My father introduced me to opera at a young age when he played his collection on Sundays. He kept his prized vinyl records in several beautiful, black-velvet lined boxes—his favorite record being Carmen. On Sundays, when my mother took my two younger brothers and me to church, my father listened to opera with the stereo volume turned up so loudly that he had to remove paintings from the walls because of the strong vibrations. It wasn’t until I went to my first live opera—Puccini’s Turandot—at the Met that I started to have a greater appreciation for the music. Even though I listened to a variety of opera songs for years,

Saudi Cup: The World's Richest Horse Race

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- The world has a new richest horse race, with the announcement of the creation of the $20 million Saudi Cup, at King Abdul Aziz Racetrack in Riyadh in 2020. Prince Bandar bin Khalid Al-Faisal, chairman of the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia, announced details of the contest at a launch event in Saratoga, New York.

There will be a prize of $10 million for the winning horse and horses down to 10th place will share another $10 million between them. “The introduction of the Saudi Cup as an international race is, without doubt, the

The Bridge: The Hampton's Most Exclusive Ticket

This year marked the much anticipated, fourth annual event of the Hamptons season. The Bridge returned to the private and extremely exclusive golf club which boasts a $1 million a year membership. Set on site of the historic Bridgehampton Race Circuit and paying tribute to the club’s racing heritage, this invite-only event had guests clamoring to see over 250 collector cars of all shapes and sizes. Everything from classic European sports racing cars to tomorrow’s supercar classics alongside the “September Art Show” curated by Marlborough Contemporary’s Max Levai, was organized on the final fairway combining art and automotive seamlessly. Luxury brands and automakers alike used this exclusi

Undefeated Postage Stamp Farm ends perfect season at Greenwich

Emerging undefeated through bracket play, Postage Stamp Farm (PSF) rose to the top of the leader board, Monterosso the only team standing between them and the Perry Trophy. Competing for the East Coast Open Final on Sunday, September 8, at Greenwich Polo Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, both teams fought with sustained intensity to keep the score within two goals. Edging out their opponents after a strong second half, PSF ended the tournament 12-10, redeeming their 2018 semifinal defeat. Kicking off the final with three consecutive Penalty 2 conversions, Brandon Phillips’ accuracy quickly eliminated Monterosso’s one-goal handicap advantage. Trading goals throughout the first chukker, both
