It’s that time of the year again. The biggest fashion spectacle is coming to the Big Apple. For some reason the FW showcases are more prestigious than the SS. I guess you have more fabric to create more extravagant pieces. Anyways, I’ve been planning this trip since December. It’s important to have a game plan and to maximize your time while being in the Fashion Mecca. Here is my NYFW blueprint:
1. Time: NYFW is Feb 10th – 18th I will stay 11th-16th (I can’t stand the cold for too long :-))
2. Location: Most of the shows will take place between Midtown and Soho, so I decided to stay within this area, I won’t say exactly where but fairly to close to Washington Square Park. The best options to book a hotel room or to rent out an apartment will be found on Hotwire and AirBnB.
4. Sightseeing: Of course, I also would love to see more of New York City this time. On my to do list are: Central Park, Ground Zero, Pizza in Staten Island, and a Broadway show.
5. Networking: The Creme de la Creme of Fashion will be in the City, networking will be therefore vital to broaden my reach and influence. Industry related happy-hours, mixers and after-parties are the places to be at in order to rub shoulders with other Fashion Professionals.
