Melissa Galeria Dual Art Exhibition of the S/S 18 Mapping Collection

By Akela Moore

New York Fashion Week not only showcases new seasons of collections, runway shows and presentations. The Melissa Galleria in Soho New York held a private viewing of the Spring/Summer 2018 collection that also was a dual art exhibition of mmmmmBillboard by Rachel Rossin and Danaus Plexippus by Cecilia Salama. The artwork displayed through the shoes had a Aztec theme and offered several different sandal silhouettes. Surprised mostly by the rain boots as Melissa Shoes are known for their jelly like sandals and flats but the rich oxblood color was perfect for these rain boots. Take a look at their Spring 2018 mapping collection. (more…)

Haven Rooftop’s Ski Chalet Private Preview Party

By Akela Moore

Haven Rooftop at Hotel Sanctuary hosted a Ski Chalet Preview Party and  we were able to enjoy seasonal cocktails, fondue and s’mores while getting the first look at the new heated Ski Chalet. While  enjoying music by DJ OLIVIER from Saint Tropez, party go-ers took shots on a make shift ski and saw the first snow fall in New York.
