Kimberly Goldson (Top 4 Finalist of Project Runway Season 9) presented her F/W 2013 Collection from namesake clothing line KIMBERLY GOLDSON at Top of the Garden in NYC. Guests arrived early to chilled cocktails prepared by SVEDKA and hor d’oeuvres passed around by Ideya Latin Bistro. Activate Water was on hand to help guests cool down from the humidity of the city and Cherish The Moment cupcakes dressed with black KG initials satisfied the sweet tooth while overlooking the city from the spacious rooftop.
The F/W 2013 collection was displayed on a white rack for viewing in the ladies lounge area and mannequins wearing some of the favorite suits and shirt/skirt combos were placed throughout the venue. Bright purple prints and gold leather caught the eyes of female guests who enjoyed the opportunity to try on clothes and purchase on the spot. A looping video reel from the Kimberly Goldson fashion show at Essence Festival 2013 and the Kimberly Goldson logo were projected onto the walls as guests networked.
Industry tastemakers showed their support by attending the launch event, some of which whom included: Brandice Henderson (Founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row), Wouri Vice (celebrity stylist), James Scholar (wardrobe stylist to Solange), Melissa Butler and Roscoe Spears (Founder and Creative Director of The Lip Bar), Shea Zephir (The Harlem Times), Dyandra Brown (wardrobe stylist to Jacque Reid), Natalie Imani (background singer for John Legend), Johnny Nunez (celebrity photographer) representatives from H&M, Zappos, Lifetime Network, Complex Magazine, amNY and MACY’s as well as many Essence Magazine Editors.
All of the guests were on hand to hear some exciting news regarding the KIMBERLY GOLDSON brand: the launch of garment purchase on KimberlyGoldson.com for F/W 2013 and the title of one of the “Leaders of the New School” in the fashion industry given by ESSENCE MAGAZINE along with a spread in the new September 2013 issue on stands now!
After the announcement guests partied to the tunes of DJ C. Devone well into the evening and once the event was at its close, guests were gifted with product from Shea Moisture and additional sponsors.
The Kimberly Goldson brand is humbled by the title given by Essence Magazine, excited about the many women who will be purchasing Kimberly Goldson to rock this Fall and is preparing for an amazing runway show for SS2014 Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week with Harlem’s Fashion Row at Lincoln Center.
