Tome dress, Calvin Klein tights- similar here, vintage lace shirt from my grandmother, Call it Spring heels, Coach mini tanner
Today I decided that I wanted to bring things back to NYFW. This year I was invited as a guest to the TOME presentation. I had been interning for the designers for over 6 months, but my time with them came to an end upon my graduation in May. As a thank you for all of my help they very generously invited me to this seasons presentation. It was such an honor to go as a guest instead of working behind the scenes as I did in their previous presentation. Since it was Fashion Week I decided that I wanted to wear something interesting. I paired my TOME tank dress with black tights and little black booties. I thought it was a cute look, but that it needed something more. You have to wear black on black when you work behind the scenes at fashion shows, and since I didn't have that restriction I wanted something that popped. What I ended up doing was taking a vintage lace shirt that belonged to my grandmother and I wore it over the TOME dress. It was important to me that I wear something of hers because she was always very excited and supportive of my desire to be in the fashion industry. I like this look because the black dress emphasizes my shape giving a defined silhouette while the shirt adds a more refined and elegant feel. The final piece to the puzzle was my everyday bag, my lovely coach tanner.
Beneath my outfit photos are pictures of the TOME collection. The presentation was absolutely stunning with the lighting changing while music played over. The collection was inspired by Ana Mendieta, an artist greatly connected to the earth. A running theme in each of their collections is that they are inspired by a strong woman. The result this season was beyond amazing, and I feel privileged that they allowed me to share this moment with them.
