Our last and most 'touristy' day in New York. Last minute shopping, a visit to Grand Central, traipsing through Times Square, lunch at Shake Shack (best shake I have ever tasted - black&white) and a whizz past MOMA. Was probably the first day of Autumn as it was rather cold. We hopped on the plane that evening and besides the 9 hour layover in Dubai it was great to come home. Kx

Day 5 in New York! The day of our show finally arrived after countless fittings and days of scrambling around with shoots etc. KLûK CGDT showcased as part of the This Day/ARISE Magazine 'Made in Africa' collective. A beautiful collection of nudes, grey and pinks along with some navy touches. The boys made use of traditional west african lace reworked onto fine tulle, combined with silks and slinky knits. The result was phenomenal! We teamed up with Ida Elsje designer jewelry (seen in second pic) and Cape Cobra leather craft designed handbags in gorgeous exotic skins.

After the show we went to Buddakan (of Sex and the City fame) for a fantastic fusion dinner. A gorgeous last night in New York! x x x

Day 4 started with my highlight of the whole trip - the Micheal Kors show! It was so heart warming to watch a show that's inspiration came from our beautiful country South Africa, never mind seeing some of my fashion idols in flesh - Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Rachel Zoe & Carine Roitfield to name a few! and then! My favourite models Erin Wasson, Arizona Muse and the oh so gorgeous Rosie Huntington Whitely - who sat front row, just to name a few. And that was just the beginning to a beautifully inspiring day... Kx

Tuesday started off with a trip to Target (in Harlem) for the Missoni range, which after to worst (well up till then) taxi drive ever, was more of a let down than anything! Every last item was sold apparently people camped outside the store and they opened at 6am, there was no hope for us. Luckily Andy cheered us all up and treated us to a sensational lunch at Bergdof Goodman - I had the best steak salad known to man kind! Following that we had fittings with the stylist Brian all day and finished off with a lovely italian dinner where we spotted the gorgeous model MariaCarla Boscono... K x
