While most editors, celebs and fashionistas previewed this week’s Autumn/Winter 2016 NYFW collections at typical darkly lit venues, Celebrity Stylist Ty Hunter collaborated with designer Jesse Queen to have his hugely successful Ty-Lite shine on the emerging designer’s collection.
Presented by FashionBombDaily.com, Creative Director and Designer Bianca Stewart of Jesse Queen showcased her line that caters to tall female consumers starting at 5’ 10”. Jesse Queen’s new “For Him” men’s line has fabulously chic pieces for taller male consumers starting at 6’3”. The designer already has a huge athletic following and consumer base amongst athletes in the NBA, WNBA and NFL.
Supermodel Tyson Beckford, June Ambrose, Claire Sulmers (of Fashion Bomb Daily) and of course Ty Hunter himself was on the scene to give their support and stamp of approval. NYC’s Primrose Couture Events provided yummy specialty treats as guests previewed the young trailblazing designer’s pieces at the chic Vermilion in Manhattan. Guests received gift bags including fabulous products from Ty-Lite, House of Marley, Marley Coffee and Strength of Nature hair products. The U.S.V.I Tourism Board also provided gift bags for guests.
