CES Fab: Emceeing the "FashionWare Show Presented by Living In Digital Times" at the 2015 International CES/Consumer Electronics Show Las Vegas

This past week, I flew to Las Vegas to emcee the "FashionWare Show Presented by Living In Digital Times" at the 2015 International CES/Consumer Electronics Show. This was my first time ever attending the CES and...WOW! I didn't know what to expect. First off, I assumed there would be a lot of electronics and tech stuff. Needless to say, not my field. I am a fashion designer.

But the minute I got off my flight and waited to get my credentials at the McCarran Las Vegas International Airport, I knew my pre-conceived notions of who would be attending this type of trade show, were smashed. I assumed there would be a lot of eyeglass wearing, pleated pants Computer Geeks. And boy, was I wrong: there were LOTS of Williamsburg/San Francisco Hipster bearded boys with skinny jeans and ankle boots and hip "Grandma" sweaters and even the businessmen were wearing slim suits, flat front pants and (gasp!) tucked in dress shirts! Little did I know that CES was Fashionable Hip! (yes, now I do!)

After checking in to my Palms Casino and Resort Hotel (colorfully decorated room!), I made my way to the main event--the 2015 International CES Tech East at the Las Vegas World Trade Convention Center. I checked out some of the tech booths including...

Bedazzled Wearables: I checked out the very bling'ed-bling'ed Swarovski Shine Misfit Wearables--I LOVED the Swarovski/Misfit Activity Trackers bracelets which wrap around my wrist and that necklace in the above pic was just SuperFab! I got the chance to try them on and take photos with them but alas, needed to give them back....ah well.
    What I did get though was this great TRUECLEAR Invisiglass Screen Protector from Belkin-- At the 2015 CES Belkin Booth, they actually had a staff installing these to everybody's mobile phones! And I was happy to get in line. Thank you Belkin!

    Tech Sunglasses: While I was roaming the exhibitors I also tried on the ODG Osterhout Design Group Smart Glasses. The wearer can read email, see movies and do much, much more, with just wearing those eyeglasses! They're even solar-proof! I wish I could have those on my next holiday in Mykonos!

    TYLT: I LOVED these TYLT smartphone & tablet chargers! TYLT makes a vast array of smartphone and tablet battery chargers that are not only fabuslously useful but stylish as well (love the colors!

    Style Interviews: In advance of hosting the "FashionWare Show" I had the chance to do many interviews including one with Spanish-language TV and CNet (above pics).

    The FashionWare Show--I had the honor of hosting not one, not two but THREE FashionWare Shows at the 2015 International CES--here are some pics:

    Following the show, I had the chance to be a special guest at the What's Trending Samsung Smart Lounge at the 2015 International CES and do a fun interview with hosts Shira Lazar, Andre Meadows of Black Nerd Comedy and Elliott Morgan, where we talked about Wearables, Fashion and the Marriage of Fashion Geeks and Computer geeks:

    I had a BLAST emceeing the three FashionWare Shows Presented by Living In Digital Times and it was, shall I say "enlightening" to attend the International CES for the very first time and now I can say, I am a little more tech savvy and know that Computer Tech Geeks can also be Fashion Geeks!
