Can’t believe I just wrapped up my SECOND fashion week, someone pinch me. Although I’ve been working in fashion for over 5 years now, it still blows my mind when I get to have these incredible opportunities where I’m invited as a guest alongside some of Fashion’s biggest names. I started as a personal assistant back in the day and if someone told me I’d be sitting front row for shows rather than getting lunch orders wrong I would never believe them!
As my second year at #NYFW I feel like my biggest takeaway for success was QUALITY over quantity.
This year I really wanted to focus on brands that mattered to me and instead of going to everything or being upset I missed something, I went to a lot less shows and just picked what was important to me and why. I took more meetings because I wanted face time with the pr agencies I email with all year but don’t have the chance to meet and went to bigger named shows because I felt they resonated with my style more. Of course I still went to names I had never heard of, but my focus was on aligning brands that matched my aesthetic.

Thanks to my veteran blogger friends who have been doing fashion week much longer than me, I had A LOT better insight on where to stay. Arlo Soho Hotel is conveniently located just a couple blocks from the shows so it made outfit changes and overall efficiency soo much better.
Prabal Gurung – His shows are always so meaningful in their messaging and model diversity and the set design from beginning to end is STUNNING.
Bevza- The way these clothes drape are so feminine, sexy and chic.
Sandy Liang – I love how she can make street style elevated.
Fashion week for me is chaotic, inspiring, and overall such an amazing experience each time. I can’t wait for Paris next year.
