On October 28th, I attended the Celebrate the Season InStyle blogger event, presented by Single Edition Media at The Glass Houses at Chelsea Arts Tower. Bloggers networked with fellow influencers and received tips from InStyle.com and other amazing sponsors while enjoying wine and bites courtesy of Gardein. Other sponsors included Sears, Jergens, Tagspire, Silk'n, Elizabeth Arden, Gardein, Bulova, DSW, Vigoss, Etienne Aigner, Sugarwish, Skinnygirl and Brancott Estate.
The evening ended with a presentation on holiday trends, featuring InStyle Beauty Director Kahlana Barfield, TV Reporter & Stylist Rachel Zalis, Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff, and other leading experts.
Rachel Zalis presented the new Metaphor Collection, including coats, chunky knits and embellishments and highlighted looks for the season.
Karim Hijazi previewed the new Tagspire spcial commerce network
Emma Robinson shared product overviews and benefits of at home laser hair removal and microdermabrasion.
Kelly Cook gave us insight into DSW's social media and promotions.
Presentation highlights also included Thierry Casias discussing Bulova jewelry and watch trends, such as jewelry encrusted, military and aviation inspired, as well as mechanical movements and a thinner, slimmer Bulova watch design. Christina Bennett took us through Elizabeth Arden holiday beauty trends including bold red lips, and walked us through newly launched fragrances for the hoiliday season. Christina Gibson shared fun ways to serve up Gardein, from mini tacos to disposable Thanksgiving spoons and fish filet served up in mini cones.
