What a night, hosting and producing Patricia Field’s 80th birthday! And did I mention it was a surprise? (No pressure).
The celebration took place at the Lower East Side Speakeasy Space, Fig 19, where we took over the gallery space and cocktail bar.
It was an incredible evening filled with an iconic fashion scene, from Fern Mallis, Kelly Cutrone, Miss J, The Blonds, Orfeh, Robert Verdi, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Anthony Haden-Guest, to Leah McSweeney, among many others, who stepped out to SURPRISE the legendary costume designer.
Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Awards Luncheon took place Tuesday afternoon at the Pier Sixty One, Lighthouse space. With honorees and presenters including Jason Wu, Ken Downing, Kelly Cutrone, Freddie Leiba, Kerby Jean-Raymond, Tracy Reese, Nina Garcia, and Gary Wassner, all delivering inspiring speeches for this generation of nominees and winners.
It’s been an exciting few weeks with the launch of our Pretty Connected pearl phone chain. It’s no secret pearls have been all the rage this year and we’ve been all the rage on TikTok. And if you caught the latest season of Emily in Paris, it looks like we’re right on trend! With true fashion meets function, we introduce our new phone chain, $36 (just the chain) and $60 with the case!
I’m also so excited I got to include the pearl phone chain in my latest holiday segment for Extra!
I’m joining forces with KESHA for a limited-edition Yin Yang necklace collection. Based on Pretty Connected’s two most popular multi-use chain styles and introducing the brand’s first rose gold chain colorway.
It’s a true fashionable-yet-functional multi-use product that goes far beyond being a necklace or mask chain and designed to outlive the pandemic as an investment to your jewelry collection. Each chain is adorned with a limited-edition Yin Yang charm with the singer/songwriter’s signature logo on the back.
“I wanted to collaborate with Pretty Connected because I was wearing their chains all the time. I’d wear it as a necklace, everywhere, even to the beach. On my mask, my sunglasses, my cell phone, water bottle… I lose everything so it comes in so handy!” said Kesha.
Everything about this collaboration has been a dream. To have Kesha as a partner and create something so beautiful and meaningful together has been such a special experience. I’m excited not only for her fans but Pretty Connected supporters as well to get the opportunity to have the Yin Yang charm as a reminder to say balances or at least strive for it, even if it seems difficult or even impossible at times.
[On why a Yin Yang symbol] “It was a symbol that kept finding me during the past year. I wanted to put it on the chain because I feel like it’s a symbol of harmony. And I wanted to remind myself, in the light, there’s dark, in the dark, there is light and it’s a cyclical thing, it’s the balance of life. And it was just a weird thing where I felt more connected to that message and reminder wearing the Pretty Connected chains.” – Kesha

And then takes her son to vote for the first time and is wearing the same chain!
I’ve been completely stressed about this election and then to have DMs in my inbox saying SJP is wearing your chain to vote! I literally couldn’t be more proud, and honored. Especially since I spent the last week watching Hocus Pocus on repeat! I’ve also been fortunate enough to meet her a few times and she’s just simply the best! Funny enough, the last time we met was at her SJP x Sunglass Hut launch party, which she also wore to the polls. And they’re on sale!
What an incredible moment! Taking her son voting for the first time and our Pretty Connected mask chains got to be a part of it! Here’s hoping more of our youth and country did the same and voted!
Grab a drink, we’re in for a ride! Stay safe everyone!

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, – 10:00 am pst/1 pm est, MASTER YOUR OWN BRAND Panel
Let’s face it… at some point you’ve thought about how to evolve your content creator business to the next level. Maybe you’ve done successful campaigns with brand partners and it gave you a taste for what you can generate from your posts…or maybe you just want to develop an income stream stemming from products that reflect your own personality. How do you get started and fund your business? Do you merch under your own name or not? Hear first hand some of the key learnings from an influencer turned business founder. Q & A w/ leading influencers
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, – 11:00 am pst/2 pm est – INFLUENCERS UNPLUGGED: CREATING HOLISTIC BRAND RELATIONSHIPS Panel
While influencer marketing has catapulted many companies into financial darlings with private equity investors and to avid social media fandom, working with influencers is more of an art than science. Yes, data matters – audience fit, engagement, content fit are all very important metrics. But more so, the relationship that you develop with social media influencers who become your brand ambassadors and spokespeople matters even more. How do you cultivate long lasting relationships? Hear directly from influencers how they have nurtured relationships with favorite companies and what are the key tactics you can use to connect in a more holistic way with content creators.
I am so excited to partner with BOY MEETS GIRL + Fashion Our Future to encourage you guys to get out and vote! Early voting in New York has ended so it’s now up to all of us to encourage anyone qualified to get out and vote on November 3rd.
Their campaign, starring Veronica Webb and other strong female leads, featured the BOY MEETS GIRL x PRETTY CONNECTED Dylan Folding Mask + Chain set ($32), with proceeds going to Survivor Corps; which is educating, connecting, motivating mobilizing many affected by COVID-19 to support all ongoing scientific, medical and academic research to find a cure, and help to develop a vaccine.
The most anticipated show from Darren Star, Emily in Paris features our Pretty Connected straps on the show! As many of you know our signature multi-use strap which became popular during the pandemic as the original multi-use face mask chain has been in existence for years! And pre-Covid it was a popular as a bag strap and necklace. I made a custom chain for the show last year, when their costume designer, Patricia Field (who also carries the straps on patriciafield.com), was headed to Paris to film.
Almost a year later, the show is in the top 10 for Netflix! Catch The strap being worn by actress, Ashley Park, who plays Mindy Chen, Emily’s bestfriend. She’s rocking our Pretty Connected chain ($36) as a necklace in Episode 7, 5min in while at dinner with Emily and Camille.
The chain is customized with charms which we do for special orders. For inquiries email us at [email protected].
