It is official, New York Fashion Week is happening people! Models are running past you on the street, traffic is backed up more than usual and everyone is looking their best – hoping to get a street style shot or the very least in the background of one. This particular Fashion Week is bittersweet for me because it is the first one I will not be working any shows. I have gotten use to running around with a head set on, clipboard and cell phone in hand. I miss the public relations side of fashion shows, it may be hectic and stress you out to the point that you may need a therapist but that’s what I love about it!
Enough about me… let’s get back to the wonders of Fashion Week! So it all started with Kanye West and Tom Ford, talk about starting out with a freaking bang. #YeezySeason4 was the only hashtag that mattered on Wednesday – besides the #AppleEvent of course. Whether they were praising him or bashing him, Kanye was the talk of the city (media) for his outrageous show. A few hours later that chatter became all about Tom Ford and his presentation hosted at the Four Seasons. His guest list read like an invite to a night at the Oscars with nothing but A-Listers (See New York Times Article).
It is clear that even though NYFW’16 has only begun it is off to a crazy start! I can’t imagine what else is in store this upcoming week. And if you are someone who isn’t into Fashion Week or think you are “too cool” for it. Then why are you even on my page ?
