Aspen Urban Ski Week 2013

By Melvin Browne

A few days ago CEO of Sizzle Miami and Platinum Planning Group Inc. Dwight Powell released details about his New National Gay & Lesbian Getaway. I believe it’s time to pack away your sunscreen and shorts because this new event is tucked away in the mountain range of Aspen, Colorado. The acclaimed Premier Urban Aspen Gay & Lesbian Winter Getaway will take place during the Urban Ski Week of February 1st – 4th, 2013!

After the much success of Sizzle Miami during Memorial Day weekend, Powell and Platinum Planning Group have advanced to providing a more, “Elite”, “Upscale” and “Premium” Experience off the beach and into the Majestic Mountains of Aspen.  This new event is For America’s elite; hardworking gay & lesbian professionals that desire and demand the finer experiences that life and money have to offer!

Aspen Urban Ski Week 2013 promises a vacation experience of a lifetime. From taking on world-class slopes, partying in your pajamas, to soaking up the fun at their highly anticipated midnight splash heated pool event, outdoor adventure, divine dining, stirring nightlife, and exceptional shopping. Aspen Urban Ski Week will definitely be a weekend to remember. According to reps “If you’re looking for a non-stop, high energy, crowded party-life atmosphere, then this event probably isn’t for you. On the other hand, if you’re yearning a less-intense, laid-back, soothing, quaint, but still fun vacation getaway, then Urban Ski Week 2013 in Aspen, Colorado is just what you’ve been looking for”.

This is definitely a MUST attend event to experience with friends and significant others. Those who have already experienced the hotness of Sizzle Miami already know what to expect from Dwight Powell. For everyone else this upcoming Sizzle Miami “Apocalypse” may be your last opportunity to experience what everyone calls the “Ultimate Gay Vacation”. So book your trip ASAP!

#FNO Fashion’s Night Out 2011

By Ibrahim Malik

(FNO) Fashion’s Night Out is fashion’s biggest global party,celebrated by all. Whether you’re a Designer, stylist, celebrity, fashion editor or just a everyday shopper, everyone comes together to celebrate FASHION in all its essence. Essentially FNO is the ULTIMATE shopping experience. American Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour detailed that in 2009 FNO was created to “celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, and boost the industry’s economy during the recession”.

My FNO journey began in the Heart of Couture AKA 5th Avenue in NYC. My 1st stop was to see what Karl Lagerfeld was up to over at Fendi and with no disappointments, I enjoyed myself immensely. Like most of the Designers and Retailers that I visited, champagne, cocktails and wine flowed freely, accompanied with Live DJ’s playing the hottest music. The mass crowds took in the Fall 2011 Collections while schmoozing with the many Fashionista’s and Fashion Victims alike.

Fifth Avenue boasted fashions from Fendi, Gant, Ermenegildo Zegna, Diesel, Zara, Elizabeth Arden and Escada. During my tour of 5th Avenue I caught up with upcoming Designer Edixon Valdez and he is launching his S/S 12 Collections on September 14th. So check him out at edixonvaldez.com

Soon after me and a fellow HC contributor Stephfon Guidry headed downtown to the infamous SoHo. The essence of FNO extended past store doors. The city subways were flooded with Fashionista’s, during our ride downtown we met several aspiring designers and stylists and students from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons. SoHo was a colossal block party. It was literally a street Fashion Show where everyone exposed their personal style and fashions without remorse. I visited Designers and Retailers such as Paul Smith London, Ralph Lauren, Mont Blanc, Jill Stuart, Bloomingdale’s, H&M, Guess by Marciano, & Ben Sherman. It was an amazing night of fashion, cocktails and celebration, and I wish everyone a Happy Fashion Week!
