What Should You Wear?
New York City Fashion Week is the time to pull out your best couture and rock the trends you have been dying to try out all season long! In fact, the more stylish you are, the greater chances you’ll have to be stopped by a street photographer outside the shows! Who knows, maybe you will even make it onto a fashion blog.
Tips If You Are Attending A Show
Below are a couple of tips to make sure you have a great time!
1. Bring a pair of flats to change into after the show!
We all want to show off our newest shoes at fashion week! Isn’t that what this week is for! We also know how uncomfortable most shoes can be! So, pack a pair of flats in your bag and change into them right after the show! That way, if you want to walk around the neighborhood after the show, you can do so in comfort! Flats from Tieks are great, and fashionable, options. Some flats even roll up and are meant to be carried inside your purse.
2. Make a night out of your fashion show! Check out these tips to make a great dinner reservation!
Many of the shows that are open to the public are in the early evening. After spending all of the effort of putting together a fabulous outfit, you will likely want to go out to dinner to show it off! Using reservation apps on your phone like OpenTable and Resy are great ways to not only secure a great dinner reservation but also to find out the new, hot spots in the neighborhood the fashion show you are attending is in!
3. Don’t forget your photo ID!
The fashion shows take their guest lists very seriously! Tickets are hard to come by, so make sure that you don’t forget your photo id at home!
While at fashion week events, you will notice that many people are constantly on their phone! Get in on the social media fun by hash tagging your photos (#NYFW), your location, and the designer. You’ll not only leave your mark (and your Instagram handle) in your fabulous outfit, but you’ll be able to connect with others who are Instagramming the shows, as well.
