Vivienne Tam Fall 2009 Collection Presentation

Fashion designer Vivienne Tam hearts bloggers: In what was perhaps the first move of its kind (or so I was told), Tam along with HP (the folks she teamed up with for the HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition) invited a select group of fashion, beauty and tech bloggers to her Fall 2009 collection presentation. Thrilled, I trekked on over to the city earlier this evening for the event where I was able to see the looks and blog about the event in real time courtesy of HP, who had set up quite a few blogging stations outfitted with their fab touchscreen computers.

I was a little too excited and overly stimulated by the fashions (they were gorgeous, btw, a highly wearable collection of dresses marked by Tam's distinct East-meets-West aesthetic) to really "liveblog," as the kids are calling it these days, but I managed to send off a few tweets on Twitter, then did my best to document the action with my camera. Tam was in attendance of course, a beautiful, petite woman with a gracious smile and seemingly boundless energy. Other guests of note included Dina Fierro (, Sarah Conley (, and Wendy Lam ( I also spotted actress Bebe Neuwirth (love her!) looking lovely in what I presume was a Vivienne Tam creation.

Check out my rookie video (above), and come back later for more pics!

How totally awesome! Thanks for sharing that really neat video, I can't wait to see more!
