I was invited to The London Bar at The London NYC hotel last week to try cocktails from their “Stylish Sips” menu. The London NYC was the Preferred Hotel of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, so it was only fitting that they offered a special, runway-inspired cocktail list throughout the month of February.
Even though MBFW had just wrapped up the week before, there was no shortage of chic and fashionable clientele at the sexy, luxurious bar. It’s the type of place where you could bump into a celeb at any moment, but somehow manages to pull off being welcoming and unpretentious. It’s the type of place that’s super swanky, but you can have round after round of perfectly-crafted cocktails, great conversation — and completely lose track of time. The night I went, it was the perfect escape from the work week on a cold night in NYC.
It was hard for me to choose from the menu, but I decided on the Glamazon and The Red Carpet.
The London Red Carpet
Fresh raspberries, Stoli Vodka, blood orange and lime juices, agave nectar, topped with Thai chili pepper-infused oil
Pisco 100, Solerno Blood Orange Liquor, Cointreau, St Germain, fresh lime juice
I love the swanky, Sex and the City vibe, great service and perfect drinks. Stylish Sips is over at the end of the month, but The London Bar’s signature cocktails, like The London Bloom and Pink Panther, look incredible and they also have an amazing wine list. This is a must-do for NYC.

The next stop in my Fashion Week adventures was the Focus Taiwan New York presentation of Spring/Summer 2012 collections by Taiwanese designers.
This event was held at Chelsea Market and featured 6 of Taiwan’s brightest fashion stars:
Hair was styled by The Vince Smith Hair Experience.I loved all the styles. They were feminine and fresh–I’d take any of the pieces as an addition to my spring/summer wardrobe. 🙂

Hanging out at Lincoln Center is one of the best things about fashion week. That is where all the enthusiast, fashion crazed and a little bit jaded all collide. All the sponsors, Pepsi, DHL, Maybelline NY and Starbuck created fashion related installation. Here is a glimps. Video coming!

First show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week I attended today is Perry Ellis. Interesting inspiration from street style. Lots of tucked in trousers, elbow pads, chunky sweaters and James Dean hair.
