Recap: New York Fashion Week (take me back)

Aahhh... New York Fashion Week; only comes twice a year and is where designers from around the world come together to showcase their creations that they have worked on for months and months on end. Spending countless hours piecing together looks and thousands of dollars producing shows and marketing for a show that lasts only 20 minutes. But hell those 20 minutes are breathtaking and worth the long wait. 

 À Moi 

This year I was grateful enough to experience first handily what goes on during Fashion Week. From working and checking people in, to being checked in as a guest at a show. My week started when I was working New York Mens Day with the company that I intern for, Agentry PR who produced the whole event. It was an amazing experience and you can read more about my NYMD day here

To kick off the womenswear collections I worked with a new and upcoming womenswear brand À Moi which was absolutely amazing, the designer Alejandra (Alex) Alonso who is such an inspiring and creative designer. You can view her whole collection here, I can't wait for next season to see what intricate designs she can come up with. 

Cristian Siriano 

Up next I was able to work/ attend the infamous Christian Siriano fashion show. I knew that this would be an exciting event because of the crowd that it attracts from likes of Coco Rocha to Jada Pinkett Smith to famous bloggers that I have grown to love. The whole day was amazing, I was able to see Christian while we were setting up the seating assignments and he really is fully involved with his work and collections. I think it is so important for a designer to be fully emerged in what they are creating because in the end it is their name on the label, not their assistant designer or PR firms. Once we finished checking guests in my boss grabbed those who she could find to fill in the unattended seats, I was so excited because it was my first real life fashion show that I was actually able to see from the guests point of view. And the collection was absolutely amazing per usual. Stop over to to view the whole collection, you will be in awe just like I was. 

Also don't mind the poor quality of the pictures and the video. 

The Art Institute Show

And last but not least I was able to attend the amazing Art Institute Show that happened at Lincoln Center. It was such an amazing show which showcased designers that I know will be huge in a few years. 

My roommate Alexa and I had a long day so we needed to take a little break on the steps of Lincoln Center. 

Cheers xx
