New York City Needs a Spring Awakening, with Style


We just received word of a fashionable event taking place in NYC on April 28th: Marla Cielo Spring Awakening Event at Bond 07. And we knew we had to share.

BOND 07 Marla Cielo

By now you know we love this brand. We think the designer’s approach to the art behind fashion is something that should be highlighted and emulated.  In today’s fast world of fast fashion and fast living, we love to seek out those brands that stick to their roots and care about their craft. From a live painting demonstration and industry networking to cocktails and shopping, we think it’s going to be a fashionably fantastic event.

So we will absolutely be hitting up this event in downtown NYC and we hope to see you there too. Come on, who couldn’t use a little Spring Awakening?
