The opening designer at the Atlantic City Fashion Week #ACFW runway show on February 27 at The Claridge Hotel was a remarkable way to open the show. The show featured many amazing uses of fabric, but designer Ellen Durken is actually a blacksmith who uses her forge to create amazing designs fashioned from metal.
Ellen’s work is wonderful both for its creativity and how striking it makes the models look on the runway. It was amazing to see how creative her designs are, and how they stretch the definitions of fashion and style. See more of her bad-ass approach to high fashion at her website www.ellendurkan.com. She also sells cool prints of her work and custom metal jewelry.
What a striking way to kick-off the show. This design set the creative tone for a wonderful evening.
I loved attending Atlantic City Fashion Week at The Claridge Hotel on February 27. The founders and executive producers of #ACFW, Lamont and Jeana Bowling, put on amazing shows and always great take care of me! (On a side note, I am really excited for their new project, SOHO Fashion Week, which makes its debut in May!)
One of the highlights for me was the show from #designer Samina Mughal. Samina’s work has been internationally recognized for her glamorous collection of clothing and accessories. As you know, I love things that sparkle and have lots of glam, and her work brought shine and glitter to the runway.
Check out lots of great photos below from her latest collection and find out more on her website saminamughal.com and follow her on Facebook.

One of my favorite models, the wonderful Sophia Leap, was one of the signature models and, as always, killed it on the runway.
Hi, Samina, thank you for connecting with me after the show. I look forwarding to seeing your work again soon!
