September has been a very big and busy month for stylist-turned-designer, Rachel Roy. Not only did she debut her fusion line, RACHEL Rachel Roy for Macy’s, but this was also the first time her designs were presented in the form of a runway show! Usually, they’re shown in a showroom-like venue.
Rachel Roy New York is usually geared towards the chic and independent business woman, while RRR’s trendier pieces have some edge them. I love them all, and I think Rachel is a fab designer and person, overall. She has range, and I believe that’s what all designers need to be successful.
When Rachel’s team sent us an exclusive invite to attend their MEDIA-ONLY event on FNO Eve, there was no way I could decline. The next day, Estelle hosted a party in Rachel’s honor at their pop-up store in SoHo. Fun and exciting are two works that come to mind when reminiscing of the event. I got to meet Rachel, and as we spoke briefly, you could tell how genuine she was. She’s real, talented, and oh-so-beautiful in person. It was a pleasure meeting her.
