What tops sitting front row and getting the first glimpse at a brand new collection? Seeing it up close and personal at a showroom. There’s nothing like the feel of fabric and intricate detailing that you may have missed during the show. Last night, I attended Paul Wilmot Communication’s Fall 2013 Preview and it was a hit! The sprawling multi-floor showroom was filled to the brim with glamorous gowns from red carpet wonder, Rafael Cennamo; a plethora of prints by Timo Weiland, Mathieu Mirano’s architectural genius, and more. Can’t wait till Fall? African designer, Duro Olowu’s JCPenny collection is in stores right now! Lets get up close and personal.
