CHILL rink

W Scottsdale Launches CHILL Ice Rink

One of the coldest nights of the season was the perfect setting for W Scottsdale to launch its CHILL ice rink.

The only way to describe the transformation of the WET deck into the CHILL rink at W Scottsdale is a winter wonderland. CHILL is a 1,500-square-foot hybrid ice rink that covers the WET pool. It will stay open until December 29.

Ford Runway2W Scottsdale kicked off CHILL’s season opening with a fashion show by FORD at 10 p.m.  in the living room of the W Scottsdale’s lobby. The show featured Fashion by Robert Black, and the clothes the models donned could only be described as glitter overload… and I loved it! So many great pieces that would be absolutely perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebration!

Some of my favorite pieces included leather leggings with a glittery blazer that could be perfect for a Saturday night out in Old Town.

A mini black dress with the champagne bottle and glasses graphic had me speechless, Ford Runwaybecause if there is one thing that I love more than a LBD it’s my love for the bubbly.

A see-through cover up that transitioned between a glittery blue to a glittery pink was absolutely stunning and the model wore a matching gold bandeau and high waist shorts set underneath.

The atmosphere of the party was very chill and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Carolers were singing to get the guests in the holiday state of mind and everyone was sitting back and laughing with good friends. It was a great evening to get dressed up, skate around the rink and pop a bottle of Champs!

Fall Furniture Fashion Week presented by Feathers and Fashion by Robert Black.

Furnishings And Fashion Intertwine At Fall Furniture Fashion Week

In the spring and summer, neon hues and color blocking were prominent themes and trends in the fashion world. Patterns, mixing prints, and even adding lace for a touch of vintage were popular, too; but these trends weren’t limited to the clothing tucked into fashionistas’ closets. They trickled into the furniture and interior design world, splashed onto walls, fabrics, furnishings and more.

According to Robert Black, owner of Fashion by Robert Black in Scottsdale, fashion and furnishings are quite connected.

To emphasize just how strongly linked furnishings and fashion are, Fashion by Robert Black and Feathers Fine Custom Furnishings are partnering up for a free, week-long event of design-related presentations and new product introductions. The event is aptly named Fall Furniture Fashion Week.

Taking place at Feathers’ showroom, new furniture designs and single spaces by Feathers will be on display. Attendees will also spot vintage pieces from Fashion by Robert Black in the showroom throughout the week.

Speakers at Fall Furniture Fashion Week will cover topics related to textile design, furniture styles, wall finishes/papers, art and accessories, furniture design and manufacturing, draperies, fashion-influencing interiors, color psychology and trends, and more.

One speaker in particular, Barbara Kaplan, will be covering color discovery and how color influences and impacts one’s life and home. This will take place on Saturday, Nov. 10., and on Thursday, Nov. 8, she will also be on a design panel with Black and Jeff Low, Scottsdale designer of some of the nation’s top nightclubs (Pussycat Lounge), lounges (Six), restaurants (La Bocca in Tempe) and hotels (W Scottsdale). They will be discussing fashion, art and interiors.

Fall Furniture Fashion Week will take place Tuesday, Nov. 6 through Saturday, Nov. 10. Two presentations will be held daily, one at 10 a.m. and one at 2 p.m.
