I was so excited to be invited this past Thursday 16th , to the first ever fashion show for Moms during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Strut : The Fashionable Mom Show, organized by Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein of The Moms, a multiplatform lifestyle brand, looking to showcase everyday fashion for moms with different styles, different jobs and different lives. Held at the Mercedes Benz fashion tents in Lincoln Center, it was a fabulous show and turnout. The gorgeous Mom of two , super-model Iman hosted the fashion show with models… mothers of all different shapes and sizes. Clothes came from top designers like Tory Burch and Michael Kors, maternity wear from Hatch and A Pea in the Pod.
Since becoming a Mom six years ago, I will admit , knowing how to get my fashion mojo back has been touch and go to say the least. There are a few moments when I shock myself and will easily pull together a fabulous outfit. Those are far and in between. The problem I have is my every day fashion statement. ’We need stuff that’s transformable and affordable, that real moms like us can wear every single day to all of the things that we have to do, whether it’s the grocery store, school pickup, back to the meeting, back to school,’ Melissa of The Moms, explained. There were blazers and jackets from Chris Benz to the Gap, bags Iman sells on HSN.com and dresses by Kors and Rachel Roy. The Moms strutted down the runway looking chic for everything from school drop-off to a hot date night. What a fantastic way to close Mercedes Benz Fashion Week !!!!!
