NICK APPEARANCES.....Jay McCarroll Fashion Show NY Fashion Week

Bryant Park Shows: Jay's Debut!!! Sorry for the delay in posting this but I have been in MOVING HELL!!! I am moving my entire Los Feliz Studio to a hot new Downtown Los Angeles Studio/Showroom. It took a record-breaking 14 hours for the movers. Not pretty!!! But I digress. When I was in New York City for the Project Runway Finale Fashion Show a couple of weeks back, I was also invited by Jay McCarroll and his fabulous PR Diva, Nancy Kane, from People's Revolution to Jay's show at the "Atelier" tent of Bryant Park. I was seated Front Row!! (not Third , like at the PR Finale) and my "date" was my Season 2 alumni, Daniel Vosovic. In typical "Jay-esque" manner, the rest of the front-row roster was quite quirky, including among others, gay porn star, Michael Lucas (I am not kidding!!). Don't ask me how I know this, by the way. My partner, David, was seated next to him , which actually made me a bit nervous to say the least. The show began and immediately I almost wanted to jump out of my seat, when the strains of Pet Shop Boys' "West End Girls" pounded loudly through the speakers. Needless to say, I think I was singing so loudly that Daniel began kicking me under the chair. Dominican Supermodel, Omahyra, opened the show and from that moment it was ALL JAY for 12 minutes!! Even 80's Jean-Paul Gaultier muse, Eve, made a rare appearance. I loved it! His Spring 2007 collection was fun, fresh, sexy and very forward with a nod to the Sixties Mod Era. Jay paired each outfit with great accessories including oversized sunglasses a la Mary-Kate Olsen and Nicole Ritchie, divine "Spage-Age " helmets and over-the-top wigs that would have made the late Divine blush. The colors, the prints, they were all Jay McCarroll. There were a pair of men's "Hot Air Balloon" -print denim jeans that I would love to own--Are you reading this Jay?? Speaking of men: one of the models was none other than my "other" boyfriend, Project Runway producer extraordinaire, Michael Rucker (check out his blogs on BravoTV.com). I had no idea that he was modeling for Jay and when I recognized him, I just about acted like a little girl at a Clay Aiken concert. He looked hot! Congrats Jay on a wonderfully entertaining show, and for showing great wearable clothes as well!!! And thanks for the Front Row Invitation and thanks for paving the road for all Project Runway designers who come after Season One.

THANK YOU for the update on Jay's show. After seeing your post on the PR finale I was wondering if we would get to see a review of Jay's show and here it is! His collection looks fantastic. And how cute is Rucker? And what a great picture of you and Daniel!

How was the sale at EMC2? Any other fabulousness from NYC or elsewhere you could share with us? I always love reading your posts and seeing all the great pics. And your People.com recaps are great as well.

Congrats on all your success - you certainly deserve it! And congrats on the new studio space. How exciting! And yes, I know what a pain moving can be, I just did a big move myself - not fun. But I'd love to see pics of the new space once you've got it all set up.

Much Love,
Jennifer

WOW! Jay and Nick, my two favorite PR designers, at the same show!! And Michael Lucas too... How surreal is that? Loved Jay's collection - maybe he'll ask you to model next time!

All is right in my little PR world. Now all I have to do is forget about this season and hope for next year. Thank you for this post.
