Hope y’all had an amazing long weekend! :) Now, can we get away with white after Labor Day? My fashion-tech founder peeps say it’s a-okay! And speaking of fashion: One of the events to check out during the upcoming craziness of Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week (starting this Thursday) is the Tesla Sustainable Style Night at the Tesla showroom on 25th Street.

Also check out the award-winning Nolcha Fashion Week with runway shows and collections showcasing the hottest independent fashion designers! My friend Jill (cofounder/CEO, Modalyst) is co-organizing their Fashion Lounge + Media Brunch on September 12 (I’m giving away three Free passes). Email me for a special Invite to the Nolcha Fashion Week Closing Party (which I’m co-sponsoring).

Don’t miss this week: Beekman33 Salon (artist showcase + music startups + party, and I’m giving away five FREE passes) and the IndieCon Unconference are both on September 7. On September 8, you can choose between Glamour Magazine’s Fashion Hackathon and the NYC Tech Picnic Season Finale. Read More
