The Face Magazine brought NYFW-worthy fashion to the Queen City! The Face delivered a fashion-packed Saturday starting with (my fave) mimosas at 9AM. Because fashion never sleeps, a stylish group gathered for "Morning Mimosas" at SLOAN Boutique. Guests were greeted in style to the swanky SLOAN with a preview of featured The Face runway designer Justin LeBlanc - formerly of Project Runway and Project Runway All Stars.
At 1PM, Le Meridien Charlotte opened its sexy rooftop lounge to the chicest bunch I've ever seen of bloggers and influencers. My partner, Alex and I joined Justin LeBlanc for lunch along with our new bestie, Chandler from Hunter Brookes. Soon after dessert, everyone gathered around Justin and The Bow Tie Gent's Louis Matthew for a "conversation." Louis was spot on and on trend with his questions for Justin who talked about everything from what inspires him to his upcoming nuptials. #LoveWins
By 6:30PM, we had Uber-ed to Hendrick Porsche for the grand finale. Tonight was what this day was all about. The Face Magazine was celebrating the launch of their 4th issue. Before the runway shows, Hendrick Porsche unveiled the new Porsche Panamera - gorgeous. Soon after that, we took our seats as the shows were about to begin. BAM... 831 Minh Le, Emuleos and Tygerian Lace... 3 amazing runways, 3 modern, edgy collections. Justin LeBlanc Designs was the final show of the evening and it didn't disappoint. A runway filled with fringe, tassels and 3D printing. Justin LeBlanc delivered a sexy, chic and unconventional collection. His artistic and architectural DNA are working harmoniously with a ready-to-wear sensibility.
