loris diran


So, Thursday night I had the opportunity to be a dresser for the SS14 Loris Diran show, and it was amazing and so much fun. It started off with me arriving extremely early which I am grateful I did now, because I ended up learning so much more than those who came later. I helped with the chair set-up, and made sure all the chairs were exactly lined up with each other. Then, I helped with the placing of the pamphlets on the chairs. Even though most of what I did at the beginning was just small tasks, watching the designer and his helpers was really eye-opening and such an amazing learning experience. 

Next, the show was getting ready to start, so I headed backstage and was assigned my model by the one and only Nolé Marin. I can’t believe he was even there, and even though he will probably never remember me it was such an honor to work with him. So, I was assigned Yulia Saparniyazova who has walked in some amazing shows such as Louis Vuitton’s SS13. Yulia was the first to walk, and also had the most amount of looks, three. Dressing is exactly how you would imagine it, chaotic, nerve wrecking, but it also gives you so much excitement knowing that you dressed that model. Being backstage you obviously don’t see the show, so when the pictures came out it was such an amazing feeling knowing that everything turned out as well as it did. So, it is safe to say that this is something I would definitely do again a hundred times more. 

volunteered yesterday for loris diran and it was quite and experience. his clothes were very good i loved his collection but the way things kept going wrong and how it wasnt very well planned out was just a little stressful. nonetheless working as a dresser was interesting, i didnt get to take my phone backstage but this is the model i worked with
im very happy i got to dress her! afterwards the after party wasnt necessarily my scene but the view from the roof top lounge was very nice overall my first runway experience!!

Loris Diran @ New York Fashion Week SS14 Finale

Made in NY Loris Diran

Thursday evening, I attended a fabulous charity event at Churchill’s in Mount Kisco, New York.  My line has been selling at this fab boutique for awhile now amongst several fantastic lines including The Row, Brochu Walker, Helmut Lang, ALC and Loris Diran.   The store is owned by Danielle Churchill and Lori Land, two of the of the nicest women in the Industry, who support domestically made brands.

It was a perfect night for a drive up to Westchester.  The honorary chair for the event was Catherine Zeta Jones and the evening’s festivities were to raise money for the Max Cure Foundation.  This non-profit organization raises money for pediatric cancer causes. The Max Cure Fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering is the primary beneficiary of The Max Cure Foundation, but funds raised are also used to support other worthy causes focused on pediatric cancer treatments and improving the lifestyle of children afflicted by cancer.

I planned to arrive early to be certain they had the MV tote I was donating in time for the live auction.   When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to see designer Loris Diran, the 2011 Rising Star winner for menswear design who was also a participant of our “Make it in Manhattan” exhibition this past fashion week.  Loris creates both women’s and men’s clothing.  Diran has mastered the art of design, having worked at design houses including Versace, Claude Montana and Chanel.  Loris helped add allure to the event, by having models in attendance, adorned in his gorgeous pieces.

See the below pictured gown(love the chain detail) to consider for an upcoming evening soiree or perhaps the knee-length  daytime dress for an afternoon wedding our luncheon .  Both are exclusively Made in New York and can be purchased at Churchill’s.

Support the mission.
