Show Us Your Looks

Published by bryanboy

A lot of you my dearest readers play with clothes and accessories each day. Just like you and me, my favorite soft drink, Diet Coke, gets to do the same. The folks over at Coca-Cola recently redesigned Diet Coke’s look.

In celebration of Diet Coke’s new look for fall, they’re inviting everyone to show off their favorite looks. Ever thought of having your photo displayed on a six-story high digital/LED billboard at Times Square? All you need to do is to upload a photo of yourself showing your favorite look at Diet Coke’s Facebook Account(http://www.facebook.com/dietcoke). My colleague and fellow blogger Susie Bubble and I will judge the contest. Deadline for submissions is Monday, September 12 at 11:59PM.

A Little Peep Changes Everything

Published by bryanboy

I’ve been running around Manhattan like a rat. I slept early last night with hopes I’d catch up on much-needed sleep but eventually waking up at 4AM to the sound of rain banging on my window.

New York Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow. I had the privilege of visiting some of my favorite designers who gave me a preview and an intimate, personal run-through of their collection just days prior to their shows. Everyone is cool, calm and collected. No screaming matches, no panic, no drama. There’s a sense of confidence from all three men (Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu and Peter Som). They should be confident. I saw many beautiful garments up close. I got to touch the fabrics, play with the clothes and see the workmanship behind pieces, which, to be honest, deserve more than a mere forty-five second walk on the runway or an image on the internet. It’s moments like this that make me realize, damn, I really love my job.

My dearest readers, I’ll share the photos after their shows.

Thank you Prabal, thank you Jason and thank you Peter. I can’t wait to see your collections on the runway.
