We’re halfway through New York Fashion Week (At least I think we are. It gets hard to keep track of time when your life is this crazy). So far I’ve had such a great time adventuring around the city with Kristi of Currentlycrushing.com and going to fab shows like GEORGINE and Herve Leger. Can’t wait to see what fab shows and parties are to come. Follow @Aspiringsocialite on Instagram for the latest from #NYFW!

When it comes to fashion, there’s nothing more exciting than the latest innovation or more on trend than the ever evolving world of social media. This week Style Coalition will be hosting the 6th Annual Fashion 2.0 Awards honoring the best digital campaigns, platforms, social media strategies and innovations in the fashion industry. Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors lead with the most nominations, followed by DKNY and Rebecca Minkoff. This year the founders of BaubleBar are being honored with the annual Visionary Award, legendary designer Sam Edelman will be delivering the keynote and I’ll be there to see it all.
How sweet it is to get a preview of tonight’s Project Runway episode before it airs! No, I’m not psychic, I just read the press releases. In Episode 2 tonight at 9/8c on Lifetime, the design crew consisting of The social butterfly (Buffi), The snob (Lantie), The hothead (Elena), The stoic (Ven), The peacekeeper (Sonjia), and The grandma (Andrea) will be given the task of making this week’s designs out of unconventional materials. After being greeted by Heidi on the runway, the designers will meet Tim Gunn at Dylan’s Candy Bar and be given the challenge of making couture out of candy.
Once the designers have completely ripped apart the candy store, they will return to the workroom and struggle to work with candy. When the models arrive for fittings, some of the designers have nothing for their model to try on, so the models sit bored and eating candy which is living proof that models do eat. While some of the designers will turn to fabric once the candy goes sour, others will stay on top of the challenge, but it won’t be without a few key pieces of candy falling on a runway. Before hitting the runway, someone will burn themselves with a hot glue gun. See you tonight on the runway socialites! #MakeItWork
