Times Square, Central Park, The High Line. All great attractions but I’ve been bouncing in and out of some extraordinary locations to attend amazing events which have made the Summer of 2019 a cool, cool Summer.
Agentry PR is the organizer of New York Men’s Day. The showcase for emerging designers shifted dates and took place ahead of the men’s shows in London, Florence, Milan and Paris. And, that’s not all . . . NYMD was held at Daylight Studios next to the newly opened Hudson Yards complex on the West Side of Manhattan.
Fashion houses – Timo Weiland, Absym, Feign, David Hart, AMIROK along with Sperry the American footwear brand, returned as a Sponsor for the popular CFDA appointed event. New York’s fashion enthusiasts had a choice of seeing the morning presentation at 10:30 am or the cocktail hour presentation which began at 3 pm.
Erin Hawker, founder of Agentry arranged for the shows to be held on two floors of Daylight Studios. We took the old skool freight elevator to the top and then twerked our way down the crowded back staircase to view each of the fashion presentations. For Models, walking a runway is becoming rare – more often they stand and pose while fashion journalists, influencers and trendsetters photograph the new collections and flirt. Maybe it was just me who was flirting . . .

Here’s what’s up with the Montauk Beach House . . .
