Fit In Fashion Lounge Tailored by amNEWYORK

One of few lounges I got to attend during Fashion Week was the Fit In Fashion Lounge by amNEWYORK. As I enjoyed the time out to breathe and relax a little, I also had the opportunity to learn about some great new brands that were showcasing their products. One such great brand was Cece Toppings. If you’re above the age of 25, then I’m sure you are familiar with Dickies, fashionable little mock shirts you wore under sweaters, blazers, etc (I most had turtleneck versions). Well Cece Toppings has taken the old dickies and added much more chic flair to it

Created by Jamie Turquie, who was tired of the bulkiness of a shirt under her sweater, she took a pair of scissors and cut off all but the visible part of the shirt, leaving only the collar. Her collection features Classic Collars, Peter Pan Collars (which we saw several times on the runway) and Ruffled Collars in lace, metallics, snakeskin, eyelets, and a variety of prints including polka dots, leopard, plaids, paisley, etc.


My next stop was to Chaise23 to get acquainted with their Reinvention Chair, which provides you with an intense cardio workout, burning off countless calories, all done on the revolutionary fitness chair. Fusing sculpting, flexibility, and cardio, this chair isn’t meant for sitting.

suspended bungees from the ceiling, the fitness chair challenges and fatigues both large & small muscles. The constant resistance of the chair and arm-resistance bungees exhausts muscles by using repetitive movements in a seamless, Pilates and ballet based technique, creating a well-toned, long, lean, well-aligned, and sculpted body. The Reinvention Method improves flexibility and balance, defining the entire body. Next stop was to Youareonthelist.com, a members-only site created by Founder and CEO Robin Ross, that provides those who sign up with invitations to exclusive events

From getting on the list to keeping on time, I moved on to Slap Watch, a unique twist on the silicone watch craze and a brand after my own heart, incorporating the addictive mechanism of the spring coil bracelet of the 90’s. I am a child of the 90’s and I did own several slap bracelets so this brought back fond memories while wowing me with the modern twist.

Released in July of 2010 in Germany, Slap Watch is the latest brain child of Big Time Brands. They provide 15 eye popping colors with interchangeable faces which allows for a vast amount of styles. So whether you’re a child of the 90’s or not, you’ll definitely want one or three of these. I took a quick break in between to replenish my energy with a few beverages including Sneaky Pete’s Oat-based Beverages

A collection of delicious, fruity, heart-healthy fiber drinks with an oatstanding nutritional value. I also enjoyed some delicious Vita Coco Coconut Water and Kusmi Tea to warm me up a bit

Up next was Sobe Seamles Tape Hair Extensions and their introduction of the No Heat Tape Hair application

Allowing guests to partake in colorful hair extensions with easy and quick applications in highest quality triple AAA grade Indo-European Temple hair in a variety of textures including beach wave, French wave, brazilian and yaki. My last stop before I had to head back to the shows was to Ricardo Rojas, who I covered doing hair backstage for Walter last season, returned to fashion week to once again showcase his vibrant hair brushes
