NYFW Detox Brunch with Lululemon + Bonberi


photo 4When September came around this year, there was a thrust to get in gear with back to school, US Open finals, and NY Fashion Week all happening at the same time. Getting back into the groove of bringing my son Fulano to school in the mornings while prepping outfits for fashion week appearances was maddening. This NYFW revealed that people are searching for mind and body health and wellness every day and that was also seen backstage at shows where juice brands like Lulitonix was present, Big T NYC, and meal delivery mavens SAKARA Life were on post nourishing fashionistas. Nicole Berrie and Vanessa Packer of Bonberi teamed up with Soho-based Lululemon designer Lauren Powell to curate Unplug: A Fashion Week Detox which was a breakfast at Bouley Botanical for the city’s top editors and health influencers.

The event provided the group with more than just nourishing food and the opportunity to take a pause in a peaceful setting amongst industry acquaintances. Motivational speaker Gabrielle Bernstein spoke to stress management and deep breathing exercises that centered the group before breakfast.

I attended the event with my long time friend and big sister Veronica Webb who truly lives a wellness and healthy lifestyle. It was a morning where we all could exhale…off the mat. We each left with a Lululemon activewear piece and seasonal flowers.
