Carolina Herrera speaking with one of the luncheon guests
Among the guests were some other fashion and beauty experts, designers and executives including: Fe Fendi, Yaz Hernandez, Yliana Yepez, Julie Macklowe (Vbeaute), Dr. Joyce Brown (FIT president) & Dr. Valerie Steele (director & chief curator of the museum at FIT).
The clothes in the fashion show, and in the store, were all beautiful, but of course I had my eye on the accessories, including some amazing earrings that are hopefully going to be sold as part of the Fall 2014 collection. I would love to get a pair!

There were some sweet treats at lunch, including cookies decorated with the current Carolina Herrera clothing prints!

Whenever I have entered the Carolina Herrera boutique, including this week for the luncheon, there is always a very specific fragrant aroma. We each got a goody bag with a candle as we were leaving and when I got home and smelled it I realized it was the same scent! Now I can close my eyes at home and feel like I'm in the Carolina Herrera boutique enjoying all the fabulous fashions.
