Astoria Fashion Show

by - 4:35 PM

One of my new goals is to invest money into a nice Nikon camera. I went to this awesome fashion show but wish I would have captured better images. The models were also walking sort of fast ha ha.

Kristie Foster of KrisTEES and Cynthia Radalj of Candy Plum boutique are definitely putting Astoria, Queens on the Fashion map. After doing a splendid job on Fashion Night Out, These two boutique owners have joined forces yet again to bring the "Second Annual Astoria Fashion Show" held at Central Lounge.

Not only in my personal opinion is Central the best venue in Astoria, but they also gave a complimentary glass of wine and a goodie bag with convenient discounts to Local businesses. This was my first time visiting the event and I left impressed.

The doors opened at 6 p.m. and the runway started at 9 p.m where I can guess anywhere from 300-500 people gathered up anticipating the show. Beautiful models took over the runway with what was mostly an 80's fall trends including harem pants, headbands, over sized shirts with creative leggings, and a few metallic pieces.

The show started off with a fun dance segment by Alexandra Ausman and Danielle Sheither which then followed the Candy Plum Collection, and before KrisTEES went on there was more dancing from Hitomi Nozawa with guest Shoh Eshiguro who visited from japan.

Laughter and Mingling was seen all over central lounge that night. I plan to visit and try to cover more events for all of you. Be sure to check out these great designers at Candy Plum and KrisTEES, believe me its worth a look and further more a few satisfying purchases.

This dancers outfit was so funky and great. I love her acid dye leggings.



This below is the gla.MAR.ous dress I wore to the IFB event in silver.

  4. That looked like so much fun. The models seem to enjoy it also. I'm really hoping to get a D40 but I'm might just get a point and shoot because it would be more practical right now.

  11. Nubia, I've missed you girly!!! I tried commenting earlier and this silly comment box wouldn't pop up. I feel like I've missed so much while I was in Boston and Arizona.
    How fun and exciting that you got to be at that show - it looks like it was so much fun. And LOL at the camera thing, mine goes blurry when people walk too fast too :)
    I hope you have an amazing weekend and that I *see* you soon. I seriously wish Blogger would update and tell me when you've posted, I hate having your blog at the end of my list - it doesn't recognize your new posts and I have them list by order of most recent post...
    Ciao, bella!

  16. Great show. The whole feel of the show reminded me of one that I went in L.A. I think it was called Fashion Knock oFF or soemthing like that. It was in a similar location and kind of the same idea.

  30. You know how to charm! :)

    btw, I bought a Canon not too long ago. Still learning how to use all the features, but it takes great pictures. the Nikon folks won't like that I'm saying that, but just thought I'd mention it as you look to invest in a camera :)

  31. That looks like a really dynamic, fun show to watch and see! I feel like I would have an awesome time at a show like that, with such original and interesting outfits to see. About a new camera: Definitely try investing in a good one, even if it's not necessarily a Nikon. I have a crapy Olympus camera that I got for something around $70, and it's really terrible; i'e had to replace it 3 times! Bad image quality, grainy zoom, the works. I have the nikon D60 on loan from my mother and I absolutely love it, naturally, despite the hefty price tag. They make such better images- so go a little heavy on your camera, it's definitely worth it.

  32. I love fashion shows. It's the whole thing, the people and the atmosphere. Seeing what everyone wears. Your pics convey the ambiance really well.

  33. Nubia-
    Just curious. Did you decide on a camera? I ask because there are some great deals right now with cameras and accessories. I just bought an external flash for my Canon Powershot SX10 at a pretty good deal (now I just have to figure out how to use it :)
