Work It: Nick Verreos, Hosting Macy's Polaris Fashion Place "Fall's Five Essentials Fashion Show", Columbus Ohio
Last weekend I flew to Columbus Ohio to host the Macy's "Fall's Five Essentials" Fashion Show at Macy's Polaris Fashion Place in Columbus Ohio. I was so excited to come back to Ohio. I had hosted various events in Cincinnati for Macy's but this was my first time in Columbus...
Last Thursday night, I had showcased my NIKOLAKI Collection--along with my NIKOLAKI Co-Designer David Paul--as part of Vanidades "Magia de la Moda" Funkshion Miami Beach Fashion Week (Look out for a RECAP of that on this blog soon!) and had to fly out to Ohio the very next day. In fact, my plane left at 5 AM so I called a taxi for 3 AM to take me to the airport. To make a long story short, I made it to Ohio by 9 AM in time to shoot a couple of Columbus Ohio Morning/Daytime Talk Shows to promote the Macy's event. Remember, this outfit was what I wore on my 5 AM flight from Florida to North Carolina (my transfer city) to then, Ohio, so can you only imagine the looks from the passengers thinking "Why Is This Guy Wearing a Purple Jacket and skinny black tie...at FIVE in the Morning???"...
First up was Good Day Columbus on WTTE FOX 28 with anchors Shawn Ireland and Marshall McPeek.

I had a blast with Shawn and Marshall showing them some of the Five Essentials Of Fall fashions I would be showcasing later at Macy's Polaris, and somehow...

Next...I was on "Daytime Columbus" afternoon TV Show with host Gail Hogan, also discussing Macy's Five Essentials of Fall and what I have been up to recently...

I brought 3 models with me to show a "preview" of what attendees would see at Macy's Polaris Columbus Ohio. The models featured these themes from our Macy's show: Military Jacket, Oversized Cardigan, Printed Pant and Sheath Dress. Gail and I had a great time; she said she was happy I was a bundle of energy (I think it was all the coffee I drank trying to stay up for 24 hrs because of my fashion show and flights!).
After getting some well-deserved rest, the following afternoon was the event--Here are pics from my "Macy's Five Essentials of Fall" event at Macy's Polaris Fashion Place, Columbus Ohio:

Nick Hearts Meg in Columbus: After my event, I made a pit stop to the Sephora at the Polaris Fashion Place mall, and stocked up on one of my "guilty pleasures": Guerlain Terracotta Spray. Thanks to the ever-so-fabulous Meg Perkins (above), I was taken care of :) PS: Meg Rocks--and her eye and lipstick makeup is SuperFab!
Oh, and did I mention that as a BONUS of hosting the Macy's event, I even got my eyebrows done..or shall I say, "fixed" by Brow Expert Angie Vera at Benefit Brow Bar, Macy's Polaris Fashion Place Columbus Ohio...
