On September 5th 2019 the Elegant classy gentleman team received a warm welcome to fashion week from Style X fashion week at Sony Hall in Times Square!
Once again Amanda Holley kicked off fashion week day 1 with her spectacular opening performance with songs from her new album.
Amanda is in fact a tough act to follow, but you know what they say……the show must go on!
The first designer collection following Amanda’s amazing set was Chicago Playground! The Varsity Collection.

While Jean and I watched Amanda perform in VIP Area 1 the crowd gathered round and began to mingle and network with us as we planned our press and media coverage of this very hot event.
After Amanda finished her wonderful performance, we were summoned backstage by Amanda’s manager Ralph Cooper II for some private time with Amanda before the other Media and Press.

While I talked with my industry friends and Amanda, Jean worked the room backstage and having fun with Amanda’s staff and others making sure everyone was having a great time!
We also worked the crowd outside full of models, fashionista’s, and guests to round off a brilliant day 1 of NYFW Style X fashion week.
