Social Styles: Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week

Who Wore What to Where by Elysze Held



In South Florida, the name Elysze Held is synonymous with style. As founder and president of the Miami fashion/image consulting firm, Style Out of the City, Elysze is the personal stylist to WSVN 7/Deco Drive’s hosts, Lynn Martinez & Louis Aguirre and has dressed CEO's, models, super-models, celebrities, socialites & fashionistas! Elysze frequently commutes to New York, is a field producer for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion week, and styles national advertising campaigns. With her stylist's eye, she lets us know WHO WORE WHAT to WHERE!


It has been a whirlwind of shows in venues all over the city in snow, sleet & slush –I was greeted by many a “don’t you wish you were home in Miami now”?
