Mark and Estel’s Sneak Peek Party For Their ‘Stairway to the Stars’ Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

Mark and Estel, the rock star designers of their namesake brand held an epic party dubbed ‘bubbles & bites’ for editors/bloggers to get a sneak peek of their new Fall/Winter 2015 collection before it hit the runway a few days later at Lincoln Center. This was one of my favorite fashion week memories by far as I’ve never had a chance to see a designer’s collection BEFORE its official runway debut.

I was equally excited for a chance to meet the famous designer duo, Mark and Estel. Both were exceptionally sweet and had such a cool rock star vibe about them. They are the kind of people you wish you could spend hours and hours with as they would always keep you endlessly entertained.

Mark Tango and Estel Day launched their fashion brand “Mark and Estel” in Los Angeles in 2005. Made in the USA, the Mark and Estel fashion line boasts signature fashion tees, flowing dresses and iconic cut-out leggings alongside ready to wear jackets and separates. The duo’s rocker style and love of music signaled the simultaneous launch of their band “Mark and Estel,” and their fashion/music hybrid quickly became their brand signature. 

In 2009, Mark and Estel garnered further recognition when they custom made their ‘Ripped & Holey Leggings’ for Lady Gaga on her Fame Ball Tour. Mark and Estel’s rockerchic yet incredibly comfortable silhouettes continue to count fashionistas and sporty girls as their customers, alongside music and fashion celebrities including Kendall Jenner and Kelly Osbourne.

It felt like a dream to walk into Mark and Estel’s exclusive sneak peek party. A model practicing her walk in a brilliant cape from Mark and Estel’s new collection captivated the room. I could just imagine how beautiful the cape would look on the actual runway just a few days later. The Mark and Estel team was on hand to do last min adjustments to the piece to ensure it looked absolutely perfect for the show.

A table full of cheese, macaroons and champagne was a welcoming sight at the party. The foodie in me bee-lined straight for the cheese, champagne and my favorite French macaroons. Sooo good! ;)

I also had a chance to meet an amazing group of new fashion friends, from left: Kelly Shry, Angie Sidney and Suzy Madden. Meeting like-minded fashion people is definitely one of my favorite things during fashion season.

Next, I went to see the fun Mark and Estel accessories displayed on the tables. I wanted to try everything on!

Ultimately I settled for trying on the above awesome M & E hat. A selfie photo-shoot ensued for the best picture for instagram. ;)

One of my favorite moments by far was when Mark gave me an exclusive tour of the new collection on their official fashion show board. I loved everything, especially the beautifully dramatic cape pieces. After showing me the new collection, Mark continued the tour of the loft and introduced me to his awesome team.

Thank you so much Mark and Estel for having me at your sneak peek event. It was definitely one of the highlights of my fashion week. :)
