If there is one thing I would highlight about NYFW is how well organised it is. First time attending fashion week overseas and, despite not having a tone of shows to attend, I felt like a star.
NYFW is not only about fashion. Is about the people, the showbiz, the after-parties, the who-knows-who, the yellow taxis and all the extravaganza that comes with being in the city that never sleeps.
I’ve never seen so many good looking people walking the streets. It was kind of intimidating! But a lot of fun too. I am very competitive, so I was not gonna be less. 3 outfits a day? Sure, let’s.
All the catwalk shows here are set up to stand out, and everybody is very welcoming. You also get to sit and casually chat with big names, which I guess is not as frequent back home. Quite an experience, I reiterate!
First show of the day was Rebecca Minkoff and I was blown away. She totally outdone herself this season. She closed Greene St entirely for the show, and while we were literally roasting on our pretty dresses, she showcased her new AW17 collection, which was fab.
She clearly knows what she is doing when she invites big names like Shea from Peace Love Shea, Caroline Vreeland or Gala Gonzalez to walk her runway, too. Her leitmotiv jackets were the stars of the shows, though I must admit I really liked the entire collection, which for once was very read-to-wear.
Self-Portrait was very pretty, but also very pretty the same in terms of collection. I love how xx uses those fabrics to create such beautiful outfits, though I feel is a bit of the same every season.
Nevertheless, it was fab, don’t get me wrong. I totally want that pink dress.
