Boy Meets Seychelles Girl...more from NYFW :)

February 23, 2011

 Way back in November, Michelle(whom I call Dj London..my amazing assistant) and I went to the Seychelles press preview to see their Spring/Summer 2011 collection. It was like walking into an adult candy store- shoes were displayed at every angle and there was so much to see it was easy to get distracted when saying hello to somebody. It was so great to see Elaine, head of PR at Seychelles who I have worked with in almost all of my photo shoots and runway shows(thanks to the Amazing Stylist Ali Lang for introducing us!). Elaine introduced me to Sari, the President of Seychelles and Gabrielle, head of Design at Seychelles. We quickly jumped into conversation about Boy Meets Girl® and Seychelles and how we should do a collaborative shoe for my brand's Boy Meets Girl®'s February 2011 Runway Show during NY Fashion Week. We all agreed that this would be a great project and the end result was amazing. Check out the Seychelles for Boy Meets Girl® shoe we did for the runway!

This adorable wedge has the Boy Meets Girl® logo embroidered on the side and Boy Meets Girl® hardware.

Here are some images from the runway and Natasha Bedingfield rocking Boy Meets Girl® and her Seychelles wedges! She absolutely loved them :)

Thank you to the whole amazing team at Seychelles and my amazing Boy Meets Girl® team for working so hard to get the shoes and collection together with me for NYFW!
p.s. Limited time only until March 15th. Get a chance to get this special shoe (it is my favorite and super comfy!)..special for you here http://seychellesfootwear.com/seystart.tpl

Boy Meets Catching Up Girl...

Picture taken on my London Travels. This was shot in Leicester UK.

Hey All,
Sorry for my delay in updating my blog. As you all know last week was one of the biggest weeks of my career. I cannot believe how fast it all goes by. 24 hours of prepping for my first OWN New York Fashion Week show for the past 6 weeks straight and now with the blink of an eye it is all over. I have so much to share with you about Feb.15th, 2011 and I promise I will over the course of this week and next week. For now make sure to check out the video coverage from the show here http://www.boymeetsgirlusa.com/index.php/welcome/pressroom_video. I loved having Natasha Bedingfield open the show. She is and was AMAZING! (and I promise to have more behind the seams with us too!). Also at the same time the show was taking place I also launched my new website stacyigel.com. So do let me know how you like my tips and midnight inspirations :) And I am sooo excited my www.boymeetsgirlusa.com new E-Commerce site will be launching at the end of March along with a very special announcement prior to that. So yes you can see myself and my Boy Meets Girl(R) team have been busy bees!
More to come soon.

Where does the time go? Neon Trees, NYFW, & much more :)

February 10, 2011
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to see one of my favorite bands, Neon Trees, perform at Webster Hall (thank you DJjazzy)! I was so excited to see them again (below you can see my smile while giving Elaine a hug).

This past Sept. Fashion Week, The Neon Trees performed live at my collaborative show with Caravan & Bobi sponsored by Style360 pre-runway show and I listen to their CD religiously, so you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to see them again :) If you did't get a chance to see them perform at my show check it out here.

Elaine was amazing on the drums as well as the other band members. They are so great live and I can't wait to see them perform again!! Check out this video footage I took at the show.

To see how far Neon Trees has come is simply amazing! They have really made a name for themselves and are now selling out concerts and will be on tour in the UK very soon! I am a huge supporter in up and coming artists, whether it be a band, solo artist or entrepreneur. The best part is seeing that person or group grow and reach their goals, it is one of the most rewarding experiences.

So as I'm here with my team
prepping away for my very OWN Fashion Week Runway show sponsored by Style360 here in New York on Feb.15th 2011, I am listening to the Neon Trees CD and can't help but think how FAST time flies. One minute it's November and the leaves are changing colors and the next it's frigid February with Fashion Week just around the corner!I am so excited to announce that Natasha Beddingfield will opening up my runway show this Feb.15th. Natasha is so talented and her new album is amazing. Here is a song that is on repeat in the office as we prep for this show.

I cannot reveal what she is opening with, as I like to leave an element of surpise in everything I do. SO you will have to stay tuned!

This past week has been super busy with NYFW prep. We snapped a bunch of pictures, so check out this collage of all the fun things that have happened and awesome visitors who came to visit!

We gave away a bunch of tickets for our NYFW runway show through a twitter contest, e-mail contest AND an Explore Modeling contest. I wish I could invite you all, BUT don't worry, there will be many ways for everyone to participate at home! Tune in to www.boymeetsgirlusa.com on Feb.15th at 7pm EST to watch the live stream of the show. The Boy Meets Girl(r) Twitter account (@BoyMeetsGirlUSA) will also be tweeting live throughout the show. You can participate in the conversation by using the hashtag: #BMGNYFW.

More to come....
