THE PARTY: Satya Sunrise Rooftop Yoga Event
THE PLACE: The James Hotel Rooftop
THE DEETS: On the morning before the official start of Fashion Week, Satya Jewelry hosted a sunrise yoga event on the magnificent James Hotel rooftop. The serene Satya Scainetti led a grateful group of fashion and beauty insiders in a meditation to kickoff Fashion Week in the right mindset. Fellow yogis were told to set an intention for their practice, whether it be a new apartment, a new job or simply a new pair of shoes (we obviously wished for shoes, it is Fashion Week after all!) For 50 minutes, we reached for our toes and strengthened our legs muscles in anticipation of the imminent foot pain we'll feel after a week in heels.
Following the open-air vinyasa class, Glam sat down with Scainetti as she led us down her journey to get to where she is today. Over a decade ago, after attending a 35-day yoga teacher training, Scainetti set her own intention along with her new spiritual name, Satya, meaning 'truth', and set out to create her own jewelry line. With no business training but a love of art and giving back, Satya Jewelry was created, along with partner, Beth Torstrick, and a percentage of all sales is donated to organizations that promote healthy living for children throughout the world through the Satya Foundation.
With the birth of her twin boys, life has understandably become a bit more hectic for Scainetti, though she made time to get out of the Manhattan for the summer with a house in Fire Island where her city kids enjoyed being surrounded by nature for change. Now back in the daily grind and promoting her 2013 Fall Peacock Collection, we're sure Scainetti has the right tools (and stones!) to stay peaceful and calm this Fashion Week and beyond!
