SXE Fitness debuts The Sammi Sweetheart Collection


If you’ve ever watched an episode of MTV’s Jersey Shore, you’ll know who Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola is. She’s the sweet one of the bunch, and the girlfriend to Ronnie (my 2nd favorite gorilla juice head!). I was intrigued when I found out that Sammi was teaming up with SXE Fitness to create a line of fitness wear, and that intrigue turned to excitement when I got an invite to attend the debut of the line during New York Fashion Week!

I know that Sammi played soccer in college so it didn't surprise me that she went the fitness line route. The line she designed is sporty, chic and very girly. The line includes all the gym bag necessities, including sports bras, jackets, pants, capris and tops. I liked the different cuts and styles of the sports bras, she had a ton of variation. The pants had pops of colors on the pockets that were super cute. I also have my eye on a camo print jacket. 

The line is engineered with Supplex technology to help you feel dry, make you look slimmer and hide flaws. The line also contains SXE's special Booty-Lift technology in the pants for added support. It also doesn't wrinkle or shrink. 
One can tell from her onscreen time on the Jersey Shore that Sammi always like to look good, even at the gym. She was motivated by one simple question when creating this line: "Why not feel good and look good while working out?" Her goal: "design a fitness-wear line that spoke to how women want to feel when working out: stylish, sexy, comfortable and confident." I'm guilty of putting on lipgloss at the gym, so I can relate! Sammi finished her show by walking the runway herself. Nice work Sammi!

MUR Spring/Summer 2013

Chateau Cherbulieze in Chelsea hosted the MUR Spring/Summer 2013 fashion week show. It was a very intimate show, which was a nice change from the craziness of the larger shows at Lincoln Center. Eclectic hors d'oeuvres, burlesque dancers and Forever Young Wine helped to set the scene. MUR designer, the beautiful Anastasia Fokina, mingled with guests and kicked off her runway show.

This collection was titled 'FUEL.' High necks, feathers and red designs were all incorporated into this accessory line. These are the types of scarves that make an entire outfit. My favorite was the one Anastasia was wearing herself.


Anastasia Fokina started her accessories line in 2012. Props to this new designer. Excited to see what she does next!
