Gottex Lisa Pliner Footwear Sneak Peek for New York Fashion Week

Fresh out of our inbox, Gottex just hit us with another sneak peek for New York Fashion Week. Footwear designer Lisa F. Pliner has been chosen by Gottex head designer Molly Grad to create exclusive shoes for their upcoming runway presentation in the tents at Bryant Park.

“With swimwear the shoe is essential”, said Grad. “The shape of the shoe affects the silhouette of the body. I feel Lisa’s work is both sensual and modern”

My Little Pony & Friends


This year, Hasbro has been celebrating the 25th Birthday of the iconic My Little Pony brand in a myriad of ways including re-releasing some 1983 and 1984 Original Ponies. The big quarter centurial celebration culminates with “The MY LITTLE PONY Project: 25 Ponies for 25 Years? gallery exhibition, which I went to check out on Thursday, here in NYC. The Project features 18 inch ponies that have been designed by celebrities, artists, and young fans, to be auctioned off by CharityFolks.com to benefit Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit organization that provides week-long vacations to Central Florida to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

Among the included were works by artists Claw Money, Junko Mizuno, Tokidoki, Junie Moon, Catalina Estrada, Tado and Klor, and celebrities Kimora Lee Simmons, John Stamos, David and Courteney Arquette, LeAnne Rimes, Deborah Gibson, and Leah Remini. Worldwide fans from the tender age of 4 to 26, and from far and wide as Australia, Ireland and the U.S. were also chosen to get in on the action through a previously held contest.

As a young lass I wasn’t much of a fan of typical girly toys, but to be completely honest, My Little Ponies were the exception. My weakness. In fact, I recently rescued my collection of OG Ponies from my parents house so they wouldn’t wind up at the Salvation Army when I wasn’t looking! So you can imagine my pleasure to attend this event and see these magnificent works, and some of the old fillies in mint condition!

These ponies will be up for auction on Charity Folks.com until Oct. 2, with prices starting at $150 for the ponies of the contest winners, $250 for celebrities, and $500 for artists.

I spotted M.I.S.S. Crew fave Claw Money in attendance and took the opportunity to snap a flick of her with her pony.


I’ll show you two of my favorites, and we’ll take a full roll call after the jump!

I loved the precise and intricate painted and beaded works of Catalina Estrada and 10 year old contest winner Sofia de Santiago Palomares Hoffman from D.F. Mexico
