August is officially back to school month! I had the pleasure of covering the Nickelodeon and Love Tribe Apparel's Launch Party of their 90's themed collection on Saturday at Macy's. If you are still back to school shopping or just simply a 90's kid at heart, this collection is just for you!
This event was definitely a trip down memory lane. The DJ was spinning all my favorite 90's hits and it was hard to not sing along to Backstreet Boys. There was even froyo and a candy bar which was a really fun touch. I grew up watching Clarissa Explains It All, Rugrats and All That. It was great to see fashionable apparel of my favorite 90's Nickelodeon shows.
I had the opportunity to chat with Bonnie Dogan, VP of Specialty Sales at Love Tribe. She is the mastermind behind this 90's inspired collection.
I asked her what her "aha" moment was that made her decide to go with the 90's. She stated "the bright and colorfulness of it......it's a couple of things honestly, the nostalgia behind it that's my era. I love all the characters from those shows from back in the day. They're fun, they're playful and I just love the bright color palette."
Her favorite piece in the collection is the Angelica Hoodie which actually sold out that day. Naturally her favorite 90's cartoon show being of course Rugrats. Who doesn't love Tommy Pickles and his pals!
I asked Bonnie what her favorite 90's trend was "I love the over sized trend, We tried to incorporate that into some of our styles........in the 90's you would take what your father wore and wear it." Myself on the other hand rocked butterfly clips and big bows.
In the background 90's jams are playing and I asked her what her favorite artist was in the 90's and Bonnie said Prince. It is safe to say we were certainly partying like it was 1999.
