ADDISON Fashion Week Launch Party Benefiting Kids in Distressed Situations

ADDISON, an NYC based clothing label threw a Fashion Week launch party to celebrate their new Fall 2013 collection and support Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S). The soiree was hosted by fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What and took place in an art gallery on the Highline. Fashion’s elite mixed and mingled as DJ’s Left as Rain and Lucas Walters (TUTU’S) worked their music magic. 

In supporting its mission to provide children from needy families with warm clothing, ADDISON donated one beanie to the Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) charity for every beanie purchased at the event. 

Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. (K.I.D.S.) was founded in 1985 with the mission of providing new kid-essentials to children and teens who have been impacted by poverty and tragedy. 

ADDISON is a New York City-based label by Amy Hsiung that creates layerable, refined pieces which artfully fuse together feminine with borrowed-from-boys aesthetics. Their goal is to dress ADDISON girls with a polished and casual cool sense of purpose and style.

THIS WAY... BITCHES read the cute welcoming sign in front of the Highline gallery entrance. The arrow lead to a freight elevator that took you to the 5th floor gallery for the event.

Once inside you had a chance to peak at the new ADDISON Fall 2013 collection which was hanging by the wall. Guests were clearly impressed with the selection which included a plethora of fun sequin blazers, leather leggings, lace shirts and more! 

One of my favorite pieces were the above leather leggings next to the matching leather sleeve blazer. During the Winter months I practically live in leather leggings. They're one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that look great both dressed up and down. I envisioned pairing the above leggings and blazer with a simple shirt and over the knee black wedge boots for a chic yet comfortable look. 

After checking out ADDISON's new Fall 2013 collection I spent the rest of my evening mingling with fashion's cool kids and sampling the generous selection of juices and drinks. 

Thank you so much to Designer Brandon Sun for extending the invitation to me for this event! (Brandon is a good friend of ADDISON's Designer Amy Hsiung).
