New York Fashion Week Roundup: Nolcha Fashion Week & Diesel/Tumblr in Union Square

Nolcha Fashion Week

Nolcha Fashion Week had tables of brands looking to hook up with social media savvy bloggers. Homanz had cute clear plastic purses stuffed with their ss2014 catalog, Grand had tiny tubes of lash growing mascara, and Biovea had…vitamins. Haircare giant Rusk had full sized samples of products like W8less, a 12-in-1 miracle treatment. Magnifico Giornato flavored champagne and Ron Rico rum were on hand to sate the unholy thirst brought on by fashion shows and the long days running to and fro trying to cover them all.

As show attendees tottered out, loaded with free stuff and cocktails? Subway, the sandwich franchise, handed out laptop bags with insulated sandwich pockets.

Diesel/Tumblr in Union Square



One lounge was completely open to the public. Actually, there was no way to keep them out! Not much of a surprise since NYC is known for its life-sized, oversized and interactive, curated art installations. Diesel (helmed by creative director Nicola Formichetti) teamed up with social media giant tumblr to create an open air space that was like a Chuck E. Cheese ball pit gone high-concept.

You were invited to lay around on strategically placed throw pillows in Union Square Park surrounded by these giant balls. Organizers handed out printed programs, with photos of all the “art” displayed on the spheres.

Tech Must-Haves from Kobo, TYLT, & Duracell

We love being introduced to new tech and tech accessories, especially if it makes our lives a whole lot easier. Today, we’re highlighting a sampling of the latest must-have tech products we discovered at Pepcom that we’ve become fans of and find that we can’t live without.

DURACELL Powermat GoPower Overnighter

As someone who’s an on-the-go Blogger, going from event to event, tweeting, instagraming and sharing information and photos of the products  and experiences we encounter can really drain your battery. This happened several times during fashion week and even on days with multiple events. Luckily with devices like the Duracell Powermat GoPower Overnighter. This batterylife saving device is a compact universal battery
that keeps you going for over a day and is capable of charging your tablet, smartphone or other USB-based
devices through the USB output. The Duracell Powermat GoPower Overnighter launches October 7th in black and will retail for $79.99.

TYLT ALIN

Don’t you hate it when you try to put on a screen protector only to find that it’s crooked, filled with bubbles, marked with fingerprints and sometimes dust particles? The TYLT ALIN is a revolutionary screen protector and plastic snap-­on alignment tool to ensure a perfect, bubble-­‐free application in seconds. The result is HD clarity for ideal screen visibility. Each screen protector includes two removable tabs to avoid
fingerprints during the dry application process. Just clean your device, snap it into the alignment tool (if you have an S4 with a flip cover, you will have to remove the flip cover so the device can fit the plastic snap-on tool), use the plastic guide edge to correctly position the screen protector, apply, and enjoy months of protection. Available for $24.99 for both the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4, ALIN is now available on TYLT.com. Each kit contains four HD screen protectors, a cleaning cloth, a
smoothing card, and a reusable alignment tool.
