After the first night of meeting up with the other bloggers and a dinner around the corner, where we met some of the sponsors over a drink and a delicious meal. Most of us European bloggers went to bed early, being awake just after 4 o'clock again! As the city was calling like mad, we text-ed over Twitter [Being our contact line during the whole week] and had an early morning walk through Central Park. I felt so being in New York when I saw lots of people running in the early morning sun.
Next stop was Michael Aram Flagship Store located in a 19th-century carriage house in the Chelsea neighborhood. We had a glimpse into his studio where he sketches and paint ideas before bringing designs with him to India to handcraft samples with skilled artisans. Michael talked with passion about his travels, his work and design. He took us upstairs and gave us a sneak peek into his future collection. I had a lovely talk with him afterwards about the beauty of imperfection, he truly is a very inspiring person.
We then had a little tourbus waiting for us that took us on a Luxery Real Estate tour - Sponsored by Miele and Corcoran Real Estate - We saw some amazing apartments that you normally do not get to see, unless you can spent a 7 million dollar for your apartment! I went out and step on the balcony.... I was terrified to be honest ... But what a view!
