THROWBACK: Opening Ceremony 10 Year Anniversary x Fashion Week 2012 x 1992 x Webster Hall x #OC10YR (8.9.12)

Vintage Dress, Opening Ceremony Mary Ellen Shoes & Balenciaga Bag

Since it’s Fashion Week in NYC, I decided to post up a throwback from 2012 – when Oscar and I were asked to have 1992 featured alongside other legendary NYC nightlife movements for Opening Ceremony’s 10 Year Anniversary Party. It was the best party I have attended in the last 10 years…no lie. The next day I got calls from people saying they had an epic night…which led to them losing their voices and calling out of work the next day.

Check the video!

Makeup by Tai Lotson and Styling by Karl Justin

OH MY GOD. Where do I begin. A few months ago our homie Mister JACKY (OPENING CEREMONY) asked us to be a part of a Fashion Week event that would be talked about for aeons to come. Basically, the event would commemorate the 10 years OPENING CEREMONY has been killing it in the game, but they would also celebrate New York City Nightlife at the same time. They asked only the best party people to hold their own parties in WEBSTER HALL, like a rave…with parties happening in many different rooms. Among those names – THE MISSHAPES, GHETTO GOTHIC, LUXX, THE SMITHS PARTY, CLUB BAR DOWN DISCO and…1992!!!

The squad came over for our traditional “get-ready”. TAI on makeup and KARL on styling (if KARL hadn’t pulled anything, which he didn’t, he skims through my closet and makes magic out of mayhem). Since it was Fashion Week, showrooms were extra tight…so we made do and I couldn’t have been happier! He found a vintage piece I bought, some brand new Opening Ceremony shoes and my chic Balenciaga bag.

After our 3 hours in the first floor room from 10-1, we took over the 2-level main floor from 1-2.

At 2 the secret performer would go on, so our timing was #PRIMETIME.

Just a little throwback post for you, since it is Fashion Week and all. This post was originally published in 2012 when my party 1992 was apart of Opening Ceremony’s 10 Year Celebration. It was insane. Check the original post below and the video from that night!

And…the guest performer was…LIL KIM!!!

I screamed my head off! Literally. It was amazing.

I’m on the verge of losing my voice from screaming all night, my feet ache from wearing my adorable Opening Ceremony Mary Elle Shoes, I funk from dancing all night (and I mean all night) and I sweated out my blowout…BUT…IT WAS GREAT!

Special thanks to CAROL & HUMBERTO of OPENING CEREMONY as well as JACKY TANG & THE ENTIRE OPENING CEREMONY FAMILY! Thanks to ALBIE HUESTON & JANJAY SHERMAN of EXTRA EXTRA CREATIVE and WEBSTER HALL for being the landmark in NEW YORK CITY nightlife that it is! Everyone was amazing and I had the time of my life!!!

I let loose (which is so rare) and I had the best time ever. I hope, for those of you that attended, you had a great time too! Now, I’m going to bed!

 

VIDEO: Jungle Pussy – “Nah”

If you don’t know Jungle Pussy, then I weep for you. She is a bombshell beauty hailing from Brooklyn, half Trinidadian and half Jamaican. Her look is “ovah” and her sound is heaven sent. I know I was bummed about New York, but lately – New York is back on the map and shmurdering things! Check out Jungle Pussy’s newest video…

RIP: Aaliyah Dana Haughton

Aaliyah was an angelic creature that mesmerized everyone in her presence while she was on earth, and continues to do so in her passing. As a young tomboy, her style inspired me and so did her sweet demeanor…as I was totally not into pop culture and its fame monsters. Aaliyah always appeared above and beyond that. She was very talented and absolutely gorgeous, but I think it was her genuine spirit that everyone gravitated towards. Rest in peace, Baby Girl.aaliyah1
