The much awaited Fashion Night Out arrived and the world of Fashion took the cities by storm around the world. New York City was a buzz with Celebrities, Fashion Designers and the who’s who of Fashion, making their rounds around stores from Soho to Madison Avenue.
I had the privilege and honor to spend my evening with a man who I have admired for many years. In my fashion book he is a legend and a master of the art of Fashion Design and embodies class, elegance and so much talent. He is a world renown and highly respected for his amazing and glamorous collections year after year. This can be no other than Dominican born designer Oscar de la Renta.
He hosted his Fashion Night Out event at his Madison Avenue store with live music by a Mariachi Band. The night was filled with rounds of hors dourves and champagne including fans and elite guests.
An evening of great music and appearances by non other than Twitter and Tumblr’s favorite OscarPrGirl, Erika Bearman. She was so sweet and endearing as she mingled and welcomed everyone in attendance to this grand event. With her elegance and charm it was great to meet the voice behind the tweets and the images behind the Tumblr. Thanks to her the world gets an inside glimpse of the fabulous world of Oscar.
Finally, the moment of moments…Oscar de la Renta arrived at the Madison Avenue store. Quickly came the cheers as he shook hands with everyone, posed for pictures, signed autographs and made his way to sing with the Mariachi band. Throughout the night he conversed with the crowd and had special visitors like Barbara Walters. To seal this epic New York night another surprise visitor came, it was none other than Sarah Jessica Parker!!!
The event was lifted to another level of excitement as SJP was serenaded by Oscar himself. She looked gitty and over joyed by this moment and had nothing by lovely things to say about her friend Mr. De la Renta. It was overall a night to remember. One that I personally will hold very dear. A great culmination to Fashion Night Out 2011 and the beginning of a great New York Fashion Week!!! Here are only a few of the many photographs taken at the Viva Oscar event.
