Later in the week I stopped by the Empire Hotel to see the Porsche Design Fashion Lounge. Though the Porsche Design brand may be predominantly known for selling high-end accoutrements like lighters, sunglasses, leather goods, and even a fragrance line, the luxury name is now expanding their recently launched fashion collection. For the first time, Porsche Design is proud to present a collection for women in Spring/Summer 2011. Following the initial success of the men’s line, the women’s collection features similarly designed leather jackets that showcase hand-made production and a sporty aesthetic, which makes for a classic and refined appearance.

Another fabulous lounge at the Empire Hotel was the glamorous GBK Lounge.
GBK, the luxury lifestyle gift lounge and special events company honored Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with their first GBK New York Fashion Week Style Lounge which took place at the Empire Hotel on the Second Floor, just steps away from the tents at Lincoln Center. The lounge was visited by celebrities, stylists, models, buyers and industry VIP’s. GBK, the recipient of BizBash’s Award for “Best Gift Bag,” offered its attendees an electrifying environment featuring new trends for Spring/Summer 2012, luxury gifts, spa services, refreshments, and a charitable focus.
An array of high fashion products, unique and trendy gifts took occupancy at the gift lounge delighting guests.
I had a chance to interview CEO Gavin B. Keilly who enlightened me on the benefits of working with GBK productions.
Both of GBK’s Presenting sponsors launched new products to the “whos who”. RevitaLash was on site offering their newly formulated RevitaLash ADVANCED eyelash conditioner that lengthens and thickens ones eye lashes twice as fast as their prior formula. Green Smoke the leading electronic cigarette manufacturer also provided the most authentic smoking experience without smoke, ash, butts or any of the odors, with their electronic cigarette kits.
Guests received the following to help create their fashion wardrobe: Beyond The Rack, North America’s premier members-only shopping club that features brands such as Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, gifted $100 gift cards, towards anything on their site, as well as designer sunglasses and fragrances; Demand shoes will be stepping into Fashion Week with their super trendy line of shoes styled with unique heels.
