RIHANNA "SETS IT OFF" AT BERGDORFS

It’s every designer’s dream to have their collection be carried at Bergdorf Goodman,” Rihanna proclaimed Tuesday afternoon at a frenzied personal appearance for the retail unveiling of her fall Fenty by Puma collection.

The Barbadian singer was joined by Bergdorf president Joshua Schulman and “homegirl Linda,” senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation Linda Fargo — as a contingent of Rihanna fans swarmed the retailer’s fifth floor, tunes blaring.

The majority of attendees appeared to be students from nearby fashion universities, including the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design.

While scheduled for 3 p.m., the event didn’t start until nearly two hours past its call time — leaving some attendees with a dilemma.

Ariana, a 20-year-old student at FIT, said she was “debating if I should skip class, I have merchandising math at 5:10.” Spotted an hour later, it appeared that she had.

“I want to get the creepers,” Ariana said of her intentions for staying — noting that the continuously sold-out style is a must-have item amongst the FIT student body. “Before this, no one was buying Puma. [Rihanna] managed to make it big again,” she added.

Aasha, a 19-year-old New School student and intern for Alastair McKimm — who styled the fall Fenty for Puma campaign, already has a pair of creepers. She was in the room to nab one of the collection’s fur hoodies. “I like the collection — it is a mix of edgy and girliness at the same time.”

Whitney Lam, founder of the women’s lifestyle blog Nitrolicious, summed up Fenty’s popularity: “Anything Rihanna touches becomes popular. There is not really women’s streetwear like this produced with a big brand.”

Within 15 minutes of Rihanna’s ribbon-cutting, Bergdorf’s stock of shoes had sold out, as well as much of its apparel.

Schulman in his opening remarks at the event said, “The whole world is talking about ath-leisure, but here at Bergdorf’s we are all about ath-glamour.”

Discussing the decision to welcome Rihanna to Bergdorf’s, Schulman told WWD, “For us, Rihanna is an icon and when we first saw the [Fenty fashion] show Linda Fargo and I were so excited about it because we really felt that our customer would love this. It’s a very sexy, very modern approach to activewear.

“Ultimately for all of us, the celebrity association is nice, but it’s all about the product and we knew this type of product would speak to our customer.”

ROCKY CHAINS.jpg

Rocky is an Avant Garde fashion designer.

“Feisty, unapologetic, insomnolence and YES, controversial. Like most others, I started from scratch. I was kid back then trying to make it through this harsh world, and a much harsher fashion scene. But with the help of the almighty, a mentor and off course, much hard work, I finally made it. I’m a fashion rebel which just mirrors my personality. I don’t think of things for the present, it always has to be in the future, which also helps me to be Avant-Garde. I’m a person who really wants to respect everyone and every culture, but unfortunately, I ended up breaking all the Taboos. I am most of the time a person enjouée, and I always make people laugh, but in the other hand, I fear crowds and most importantly, I love to surprise people.” – Rocky Gathercole , Metrovelvet

What an EVENT!!!

The Face of Kurvacious is produced by Ms. Kurvacious Scott, an icon in the fashion industry.

Let me tell you how it all happened….. First, I arrive, I am greeted and seated, I’m thinking “very nice”.  As judges arrive, they are seated, introduced.  I’m thinking “I like this”.  We are served a beautiful dinner and additional guest are let in…. the show is about to begin.

The two hosts of the show are hysterical and informative, David Ash and Charlotte Rogers-Brown, keep you entertained.  The judges are Andrene Wiliams of UBM Models, Sofia Davis, Editor-in-Chief of Fashion Avenue News and Model World Magazine, Sonja Elise Freeman of Miss NY Plus America, Tasha Hill of BGU Concepts, Janine Y. Ellis NinaJoi Creations and the (Runway Slayer) Supermodel Jeannie Ferguson of BGU Concepts.  WOW, what a line up.

The contestants, all 25, are introduced thru a dance routine that is fabulous, they move and groove to runway pulsating music.  The next scene is to introduce themselves and explain why they should be the next Face of Kurvacious.  The judges listen closely as the crowd goes wild after each contestant.   It’s an intense moment.

In each category the contestants display their elegance and confidence and slay the runway with their own style.

In addition to the fabulous contestants, the Kurvy Dolls take to the runway – what a treat.  The Kurvy Dolls are the Kid Kurvy Models, they have kid designers, Pink Ladybug Couture, Chubbie Line, that made some of the garments.  What a refreshing surprise.  I was so proud to see children having a platform.   Designer Egypt, of Chubbie Line, was featured this month in TEEN VOGUE, as The Ones To Watch, Under 21.   She is on her way.

Some of the celebrities in attendance are the Queen of New Jersey, Ms. Theresa Randolph, Executive Producer of Ms. Full Figured USA Pageant and her beauty queen winner.

The final category is Evening Wear.  The contestants were escorted on the stage by very handsome male models.  The contestants know this is their final opportunity to impress the judges.  They do not disappoint.  Each and every gown and outfit is to die for, it’s very hard to choose.

Now is the time to announce the winner, different awards are given out and each contestant feels like they are a winner.  But there can be only one first place winner, there can be only one Face of Kurvacious.
