I’m so excited to share with you my experience and some of the outfits of my first New York Fashion Week. I’ve been to New York a few times but never for Fashion Week, if I thought that this city was intense before I found out that when you visit for Fashion Week it is 10x more intense than anything you could imagine! I stayed in SOHO, which is an amazing location, most of the shows are close by and the neighborhood is great for “street style” pictures. I truly recommend you come to SOHO during your stay in NYC. It wasn't as cold as I thought it was going to be, especially due to the fact that is was February but you still need to have a good coat. Pack light but warm, you’ll get a workout from running around.
I was really impressed by all the diversity of styles that you get to see from people attending the shows it was very inspirational. Of course attending the shows was amazing, I got to attend shows from some emerging designers and I attended big name shows such as Claudia Li, Romeo Hunte, Yajun and my favorite... Alice and Olivia.
When it came to choosing my outfits for fashion week, I really wanted something that would impress. I went online and took some inspo from current trends and from previous fashion weeks. The styles I chose were from Topshop, Zara and from one of my favorite vintage store What Goes Around Comes Around NY.
