This season was my first attending a preview of Vivienne Tam's collection. I was more than overjoyed to receive an invite considering I've always loved her line. So it was no surprise that her Fall 2011 collection was one of my favorites of the season. She took it back to her roots and incorporated a balance of ancient and modern Chinese inspirations. Her pieces were detailed and artful but still very wearable.

After the show, I bumped into Deborah Cox and June Ambrose. I happened to land a seat right behind the two of them during the show. Lovely ladies they are. June had her mini-me aka her daughter in tow. How adorable is she!

I also caught a glimpse of Cynthia Bailey of Real Housewives of Atlanta. In true ATL fashion, she was sporting a colorful dress and wide-brimmed hat. Gotta love those housewives!

Backstage I caught up with my girl Angela Simmons, who expressed that she absolutely loved Vivienne Tam's collection. She also mentioned that she was headed to Las Vegas for the MAGIC trade shows to help promote the Pastry Collection. She's someone I truly admire for putting in work. When you have a dream, no matter how famous/rich you are, you still have to work to keep it alive. Check out Angela's Fashion Week Diaries feature with LoveBrownSugar last season. It's one of my faves!
Here she is being interviewed by my girl Elaine Welteroth of Ebony Magazine. Elaine is so gorge, don't you love her frames? I snapped pics of her for LoveBrownSugar's Street Style last season.
