Finally: An Update on iPhone MMS!!
We know many of our iPhone customers are eager for an update on our rollout schedule for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). We’ve been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches – and that launch date is: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day.

We know that iPhone users will embrace MMS. The unique capabilities and high usage of the iPhone’s multimedia capabilities required us to work on our network MMS architecture to carry the expected record volumes of MMS traffic and ensure an excellent experience from Day One. We appreciate your patience as we work toward that end.

We’re riding the leading edge of smartphone growth that’s resulted in an explosion of traffic over the AT&T network. Wireless use on our network has grown an average of 350 percent year-over-year for the past two years, and is projected to continue at a rapid pace in 2009 and beyond. The volume of smartphone data traffic the AT&T network is handling is unmatched in the wireless industry. We want you to know that we’re working relentlessly to innovate and invest in our network to anticipate this growth in usage and to stay ahead of the anticipated growth in data demand, new devices and applications for years to come.

We thank you for your business and look forward to keeping you updated on our initiatives.

Fashion Week: Carolina Herrara Show

I woke up @ 7am yesterday which,by the way, is a time I'd rather not see; however this early rise was for fashions sake! Raina, the designer I intern for, got me and others on the list for the Carolina Herrara fashion show at the "tents" in Bryant Park.

"How amazing..." my thoughts as I approach the tents. "What the..." was my next thought when I saw protestors rallying in front because of Carolina Herrara's use of lambskin in her collection. Boy were they intense, one man was in a dress drenched in fake blood, heels, holding a fake lamb fetus and wearing a mask of a lambs head!

He and the rest of the gang were screaming "Carolina what the hell, how many fetus' do you have to sell!"

Moving along...we get in through the first line, then the next one is checking the list, as we wait I am just admiring the fact that I am in NYC Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Bryant Park Tent!!!! :sigh: and just as I am taking it all in... Rachel Zoe walks in, with assistant Brad in her shadows of course, stops at the check-in table says "I'm Rachel..." like duh and gives a little smile and keeps it moving. She looked great. =o)

And we're moving... We get in, I decide to not take a seat simply because I have to be at work in a half an hour! So I make my way to the back where others are standing, peering into the crowd to see who I can spot...Gasp! Noo... Yes... That's definetly her signature haircut! It's Anna Wintour I feel blessed to be in the same room as her.

Now to the show, finally right! The show was amazing! Very beautiful, feminine pieces I was loving the silouhettes, fabrics and details and Chanel Iman I heart her. Some of the color choices were a bit redundant in my opinion, but who am I!

Fashion Week

It's officially fashion week and the shows have started and the people are talking.
I did indeed attend Fashion's Night Out... It was crazy! The streets of SoHo were packed with fashion folks, every major store had their own parties going on within and there were lines for the best ones of course! But all of my plans for the night didn't play out due to the weather (sadface) it was raining which ruined alot of plans however I did enjoy the night.

It is September and not only does it mean the weather is beginning to change and school is back but it means FASHION WEEK!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NYC September 10th through the 17th is a HUGE ordeal in the fashion world as we all know. There has been preparations for this one week happening since last year! All of the best and highly-known designers will be showing their Spring 2010 collection in the Tents @ Brynt Park and only those blessed with invitations will be able to view them. Right now I can only dream of being able to attend a show, however, soon enough I will get an invite! (LoL)

BUT there is one event that no one needs and invitation to and it is Fashion's Night Out

This year Vogue and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) are holding an event called Fashion's Night Out. This event taking place Thursday September 10th from 6pm-11pm is to promote retail, restore consumer confidence and celebrate fashion. It is an international event and with be happening in 13 other fashion capitals. This is a one time event where participating retailers will keep their stores and boutiques open late for more shopping and they will have special events going on such as meet and greets with designers like Oscar De La Renta, Alexander Wang; celebrity appearances, mini-concerts, make-overs, signings, fashion shows and so much more! This will be held through-out all New York boroughs but especially in Manhattan of course. They are even having a city-wide clothing drive to raise money for AIDS charities annnnnnd some proceeds from that night will go to the 9/11 memorial.

For more in depth info go to

The whole idea is to promote shopping and to show people that there is no need to be scared of shopping it is the only way the economy will get back in shape! I love it... I think it will be very fun and we will be helping a cause and that's always a good reason for anything in my book!

I will be attending I just have to create an itinerary of what spots I want to hit up and what events I want to see!

Ryann photoshoot

As you all know I intern @ Ryann along with Josefina for designer Raina. Today's job was shooting for her Spring 2010 lookbook.
Raina on the blackberry

It was an outdoor shoot and we met at 10am @ an art studio in Williamsburg(apparently where Basquiat once worked), started around noon for the best lighting.

The model, 19 year-old Elana from Italy, was great out there although the sun was beating down on us with no mercy!

Photographer Tono made the set very fun... I was even named his assistant for the day (lol) I learned about filling and lighting! Raina hired Keith as the stylist, who brought the most interesting pieces of jewelry and a hair/makeup artist whose name slips my mind at the moment... However she was wonderful and full of great conversation!

The day went well, we had funny moments like moving trash out they way for the perfect shot and covering Elana so she can change in the street, we saw a man riding a unicycle and Elana running through the studio naked looking for the next outfit!

Collection: Ryann Spring 2009 (
Location: Williamsburg
Model: Elena with Muse agency
Photographer: Tono (
Stylist: Keith
