Are you as surprised as I am that I got to go to NYFW??! It’s been a good six years since I started this blog and because of it, I’ve had some cool opportunities. But this one has been the most rewarding. Walking into shows and having a bunch of photographers take photos of me…if you know me at all, you know that’s my dream.
(Outside Skylight at Moynihan Station)
I landed in NYC on Saturday morning after an arduous red eye flight. I missed the Hervé Leger fashion show I was invited to. I know, I know. How could I have messed up that badly?! I fell asleep at my hotel and woke up ten minutes before it was supposed to start (no make up, in my pjs). I died a little inside.
The weekend was filled with shows, parties and site seeing. I think this was my seventh trip to NYC and I have decided to move there after college (December 2016). The lifestyle is much more fast paced and cut throat than LA, which I love. People in LA are fake nice and people in NYC are assholes, excuse my French…(and it’s great). Manhattan is a lot like London except way dirtier and since I don’t have a European passport…I’ll go with NYC.
(BCBG After Party at Up & Down)
I had the opportunity to go to Up & Down in SoHo for Max Azria’s after party. Everyone was dressed fabulously which made my choice of a tulle fascinator and sequins mini seem apropos. I met Victoria Justice and the genius behind BCBG and Hervé Leger himself, Max Azria. We left the party around midnight and headed to another club only to find out that Nick and Joe Jonas, Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner and Tyga showed up after we left. Twelve year old me, that was convinced I would marry Joe Jonas one day, freaked out on the inside. Other little things like this happened all weekend like how my friend and I were at the Trump in SoHo and just missed Kylie Jenner as she was leaving. I don’t know what I would do if I was near Kylie, though. I’d probably be too intimidated to say anything or ask for a photo, she seems like she’d ignore or be rude to a fan. (Not that I consider myself a fan, I think her existence is comical).
When I was headed to Houghton on Monday at Milk Studios, I was stopped and interviewed about Donald Trump by Bloomberg–check it out here. I was totally caught off guard and said I liked classic items when I was asked about trends…oops. Here is my official correction: duster coats, suede and Dior Technologics are my favorite trends right now. I went into fashion week thinking I’d be a rookie and everyone else would be wearing obscure, new trends that I wouldn’t have even heard about, but I was wrong. People that work in the industry complimented me on what I was wearing. My confidence on entering this industry after college has been strengthened. I think working in the fashion industry is what I’m truly meant to do.
NYC feels like home~headed back in 2 weeks ’cause I just can’t get enough.
