Camouflage or Sequins? Sherri Hill Fashion Show at NYFW

I’ve been to many fashion shows this year and every one of them are exhilarating. This year during New York Fashion Week, I was invited to several shows.

One of the shows was the Sherri Hill Fashion Show. I’ve met Sherri Hill many times and she is always very nice and accommodating. I’ve met many designers in my high heeled life but I really enjoy Sherri’s down to earth nature. She is extremely talented and fun yet she comes across very humble. Below are some of the pictures I took while running late to the show…and later enjoying the atmosphere of the photographers and runway.

It was fun getting to meet Si Robertson, from Duck Dynasty. The whole Duck Dynasty clan was there watching Sadie Robertson make her runway modeling debut. The contrast was interesting. Beauty queens in sequins and lace and the Duck Dynasty family in bandanas, camouflage and long ZZ Top-like beards.

Roaring 20’s Gatsby Party at Chateau Coindre Hall

I was invited to a Roaring 20’s Gatsby Party at Coindre Hall on Long Island’s Gold Coast. I was instantly attracted to the excitement and allure of the 1920’s.

As we drove past the charming neighborhoods overlooking Huntington Harbor, we came to a magnificently tree-lined lane, as if we were entering a secret passageway or portal back into the iconic era of the prohibition.  As we approached the Chateau, antique cars lined the drive with people dressed in gangster and flapper clothing, holding champagne glasses laughing and mingling as time period music filled the air.

The Gangsters Paradaise

The Gangsters Paradaise

I’ve always dreamt about living in different time periods.  The glamour and rebellion of the early 1900’s has always appealed to me. The intrigue of how  prohibition created the American Mafia gangsters and many of the millionaires of that time period; the fancy cars with jump seats & the road races on the Vanderbilt Parkway; the Flappers dancing The Charleston with a new found freedom from the conservative Victorian Age; and the speak easy underground clubs with women smoking their slimline cigarettes ever daintily, seductively stroking their finger-wave hairstyles.

I remember watching the Legends of the Falls with Brad Pitt for the first time, it became my all time favorite.ah, what a devastating yet a beautiful love story…

Luckily I found my own gangster. Well,  he’s not Brad Pitt, I know, but his better than Brad!

Cheers to my Gangster!

The History About the Chateau Coindre Hall

Coindre Hall is a 40 room, 30,000-square-foot (2,800 m2) mansion in the style of a medieval French château constructed in 1912 for pharmaceutical magnate George McKesson Brown. It overlooks 34 acres (140,000 m2) of rolling land including a boathouse on the north shore of Long Island adjacent to Long Island Sound. Brown lost ownership of the property after the stock market crash of 1929. At the request of Bishop Monsignor Thomas Molly, the Brothers of the Sacred Heart bought this property to establish a boarding school and summer retreat. It was founded in 1939 by Brother Martinian, S.C., Provincial Superior, and was named in memory of Father André Coindre, the founder of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. The school was intended to generate funds for the formation and education of young Brothers. It operated under the supervision of the Brothers who have been active in Christian Education in the United States since 1847.

It closed in 1971 and later reopened for a few years as an independent private institution called “Eagle Hill School.”

Since 1973 Coindre Hall Park has been administered by the Suffolk County Department of Parks, Recreation & Conservation. On September 26, 1985 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is often used for hosting weddings.

The Rumors About the Chateau Coindre Hall

The rumor is that the castles boat house was used to run booze into the city by Bronx Beer Baron Dutch Schultz. Some say that the boat house is more beautiful than the castle itself.  Apparently the feds collapsed  the tunnel when they raided the boathouse during prohibition days.
