FrontRow (12)

On Tuesday, February 12th, CONAIR STYLE 360’s day of shows wrapped with Shateria Moragne-el showing her FRONTROW collection in the presence of boyfriend Rick Ross, Real Housewives of New York’s Ramona Singer, Miss USA, and Angelina from Jersey Shore.

VIP guests enjoyed swag bags with the new Harman-Kardon headphones, and Conair hair products, and noshed on bites by Jarlsberg Cheese. The crowd was urban, young, and hip which was a good match for Shateria’s leather-heavy line.

I was surprised to see such an abundance of leather so artfully worked by an up-and-coming designer. While the show itself was rather amateurish (one model strutted down the runway with no shoes while some rocked Louboutins) FRONTROW’s take on the leather staple for Fall/Winter 2013 was fresh. Our favorite look was her leather peplum dress, which is a difficult silhouette to master even in fabric.

We expect to see great things from this up-and-coming designer, and hope to see Shateria’s versatility with her next collection in more than leather.

Happy FRONTROWing.
