What an amazing honor to see this wonderful role model in action. Macy’s Union Square hosted “Dance into Spring” showcasing Rachel Roy’s spring collection. She looks absolutely stunning in person and beams with positive energy. I am so lucky to have had the opportunity to attend!
Many of you already know that I admire Rachel Roy for her designs but it is so much more than that. It’s her poise, determination and goodwill that make me a true fan. She is genuine and true.
I was fortunate to have met up with Designer Sarah Liller, Blogger, Kara Ashe of GoVeeBlog.com and The Beauty Bohemian herself, Mira Torres. Mira scored a one on one interview with Rachel and will be writing about it very soon. I will keep you posted!
The event ran from 6-8 pm and I arrived around 7:15. The crowd was fashionable and DJ Tina T was droppin’ beats. They served “mocktails” and hand passed Rachel’s candy bars made by Dylans Candy Bar. They were showcased in pink, blue and purple colored sugar and the package design was ideal.
I had anticipated hundreds of people but the crowd was intimate and the event was casual. The models were lined up near Rachel Roy’s desk and they changed their clothes every 15 minutes. They had been styled just like Rachel Roy’s website with their hair in braids and matching accessories. Some of the shoes are currently sold out on her website but are available at macys.com.
The Pancake shoe in Turquoise are sold out on Rachel Roy’s website but are available at Macys.com $119

One of my favorites of the night is the beautiful shoe below. The Fynbar. It retails for $149 and does not ship until 6/1. Exclusively available at rachelroy.com
