Luck Fabb Conference, NYC

While we’ve all been feverishly awaiting the unveiling of New York Fashion Week’s official schedule, I’ve been reminiscing about some of the best moments from last September. I have to say I had a memorable time, and The Lucky Fabb Conference was definitely one of the highlights of my fashion-fueled NYC escapade.

Here are some of the high points of the bi-yearly fashion bloggers’ must-attend grand gathering.

Meeting in the flesh Fashion PR’s First Lady, Aliza Licht aka DKNY PR Girl, was a moment to remember. The witty, glowy and uber stylish social media queen gracefully glided into the room in the most divine urban goddess one-shoulder garb. I know I know, I’ve tweeted my utter adoration for the look ad nauseam but every time I press that replay button in my mind’s eye, I get that same thrill all over again.

Lucky Fabb Conference: Lauren Bush

As you’ll see (more down the page), it was a million-dollar-smile kinda day. Though the issues Lauren Bush Lauren was addressing, hunger and malnutrition, aren’t exactly on the lighter side, she couldn’t help sharing in the joyous spirit.

Lauren and Aliza talked about Donna Karan‘s collaboration with FEED Projects to fight global hunger. Proof, if need be, that fashion isn’t as superficial as it seems.

Lucky Fabb Conference: Fashion Designer Anna Sui

Anna Sui discussed her inspiration-seeking and Pinterest-ready mood boarding ways as well as her pragmatic, business-focused approach to design.

Anna and Barney’s Simon Doonan shared great stage chemistry and unrivaled wit. I’m sure we all felt a little sad to see them go (I know I did).
