Last night, Epson set off Fashion Week with a banging party at Sixty 10 in NYC. The highlight of the event was the designer showcase of selected designers from the Americas, who all innovatively created their collections using Epson’s state-of-the-art direct-to-garment and digital dye-sublimation printing. To commemorate the return of this showcase of designers coming together for fashion, this year’s theme for the presentation was “Harmony and Peace Through Fashion.” As well as, getting to check out the stunning fashions guests enjoyed hor d’ourves and beverages from American Juice Company, Dry Sparkling Soda, Maven Cocktails, Red Bull, Rekorderlig, and Svedka Vodka. (I am crazy for Dry Sparkling sodas especially the Blood Orange and Rhubarb). We also got down to the DJ sounds of Chelsea Leyland and Pamela Katz.

So much has changed – Obama and Oprah are evidence of King’s Dream realized, yet so much has stayed the same – Black men are still being lynched by cops and civilians, African-American unemployment is double the national average, and racism, while cloaked, is alive and well. Dr. King’s Dream is still only half realized but at least we are on the way!

For those looking for a quick getaway to rejuvenate from the hustle and bustle of urban life, The Saybrook Point Inn & Spa is a little piece of heaven. Just two hours outside of the City, it is one of my favorite spots.
On January 16th, head up to the Fire and Ice Festival, for a great wintery travel time.

From Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction through Jackie Brown to Death Car, I have always been a big Quentin Tarantino fan.Quentin’s love for everything cinematic literally bursts through his films making them more than a mere movie outing. The Hateful 8 delivers the same punchy dialogue and cartoonish violence we have come to expect from a Tarantino film. It’s a definite must-see.
