NYFW Diaries: HP x Project Runway Party

HP and Style Coalition hosted a fabulous Project Runway party during New York Fashion Week that was crawling with alumni from the popular reality show! I've been a fan of the show for years so it was really exciting for me to see so many of the designers in real life. (Mondo! Casanova! Emilio!) The evening kicked off with a champagne toast to the Project Runway alumni and a panel discussion on fashion and technology. Then guests got to mingle, enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres while experiencing the latest HP technology.

As an HP blogger ambassador, I've been test driving the HP ENVY x2, a powerful tool that's a laptop and tablet in one. It features a sleek aluminum finish and innovative hinge with magnets that smoothly guide the tablet portion in place. There's also an HD webcam on the front and an 8.0 megapixel camera on the back. I think everyone's favorite part of the party was an HP "photo booth" outfitted with silly "fashion" props where you could pose with friends, then instantly share the photos or print them out. I had way too much fun with this (see photo above).

Thanks to HP and Style Coalition for the experience!
