Candace Ang Fall Jewelry Collection First Viewing, Fashion's Night Out, Scoop, New York
September 10. 2010
Fresh off of chicken wings from McKeown's on the UES, my gaggle and I headed to Scoop after the Moves magazine party. Spinning at Scoop was none other than DJ Nithya Rajendran , wrapping a warm layer of beats around the launch of jewelry designer Candace Ang's new fall collection.
Being part of Fashion's Night Out was surprisingly fun. Surprisingly because I really don't know the ins and outs of the fashion world, I'm too money-vacant to dump a load of cash on shoes or a trench, and I'm short. I assumed FNO would be streets covered in human giraffes and gazelles, draped in capelets sewn with elf hairs. It was quite the opposite; the streets were filled with every walk of life, zipping in and out of stores like unfocused lightning bugs, sipping free drinks, and trying not to get pepperoni dust on the fur vests.
Stepping into Scoop kept that feeling going, with DJ Nith slapping in a little Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" as my group entered. As a side note, I've horribly performed that at karaoke. As I looked around, I thought "Where the hell is everyone, isn't this open bar?" Well der, the open bar was in the other room. Sagatiba was the liquor sponsor and everyone could be found in line.
Now, this is where it gets semi-odd. Where Moves didn't provide any food, only alcohol, Scoop didn't provide water. That and poor Candace's jewelry was at the front of the first room, far far away from the bar. To give her jewelry more exposure, it would have been more logical to have the display near the bar so partygoers had something to entertain themselves with while the bartender muddled each friggin' beverage for an eternity.
Speaking of Candace's jewelry line, if you always wanted to combine "Gladiator," "Jurassic Park," and autumn itself, whip it up with some feminine sparkle and muted metal, then you will love her stuff. I particularly love one necklace roped with a little gold dinosaur. I'm pretty sure even the most meek woman would look like a badass in this stuff.
And that's all she wrote.
