This month I had the pleasure of attending the Alizé Concrete + Cashmere launch party held at the Cooper Square Hotel Penthouse in downtown NYC. I was excited at my chance to party like a rockstar, and also support one of my favorite style stars on the rise, David McKnight aka DAMStyle (and he is damn stylish 😉 ).

David had the role of “den master” ala Tim Gunn style on the show. Here’s the 411:
Concrete + Cashmere is a hip, edgy web–based reality show that will chronicle the lives of 8 young, adventurous, aspiring fashion professionals as they compete for $10,000, the title of Alizé Style Maven, and a Fashion Career Polishing Package. Including mentoring opportunities from some of the brightest luminaries within the fashion industry, courtesy of Alizé.
Notables in the party place to be included guest judges: Angel Chang of Bravo TV’s The Fashion Show, Erin Lucus of MTV’s The City, and the beautiful DJ Rashida. Other party people included Peter Bittenbender, CEO of Decon Media (producers of the show), VH1’s Glam God/Celebrity Stylist, Indashio, and on the turntables was one of hip hop’s finest: DJ DNice.
(one of the stylish group of folks at the party, we had wonderful chats on the deck)
(Indashio rockin’ his own custom made MJ Glove, and to all my Blogher peeps, as you can see by his dancing partner, the pink feather brigade began weeks before I got to Chicago 😉 )
(My favorite fashionisto at the party, I stopped this guy and asked, “Hey are those Alexander McQueen tights?” just to confirm, and he, in true rockstar smug fashion says: “Pshh huh, of course they are…”. “Can I take a pic?”, I ask. Then he strikes this pose with his phone probably tweeting or texting something like: “annoying black girl is gawking over my McQueen tights..” lol!!! Whatever, I still found him rockstar chic and he gave me a good laugh…)
Check out the full party pics including a beautiful Manhattan sunset and full moon. It was a fantabulous night.
