Fashion Recap: Elle Fashion Lounge #safeschools

Elle hosted a Fashion Lounge at the Empire Hotel during Fashion Week to give show-goers a welcome respite from everything. There were different pampering services to take part in and guests indulged, happily.

Guests got their hair braided with John Barrett. Braids are a major trend on the runways this past season so girls were lining up to get theirs done.

There was a Soft Serve Fruit Co. Party Cart. It’s basically fruit in a soft serve ice-cream format with a bunch of different healthy toppings, like nuts and cranberries. I tried the strawberry. It was so yummy!

Guests got their nails done by Sakura.

The Elle Fashion Lounge benefited GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
