Day 4 started off very grey as the weather was definitely not on our side. During NYFW looking chic pretty much trumps any ounce of practicality, however since the rain came as an unwanted accessory I chose to style an ensemble that had elements of both. After strutting around in heels the last 3 days, I was more than happy to throw on a pair of leopard print booties. To keep up with my theme of incorporating bold colors, I added a red patent leather mini to the mix, and a cream colored open back blouse for a more delicate touch. After grabbing my over-sized leather jacket and cat-eye frames (despite the lack of sunshine), I was ready to head to my first show of the day by the brand, Nonie. It was quite the coincidence that the designs incorporated similarly structured elements to what I was wearing, as well as more feminine pieces such as silk blouses and vibrant wrap dresses. I could honestly picture myself in every garment displayed from this collection and am excited to see what new creations the upcoming seasons bring.
After taking a break for brunch and catching up with more familiar faces, I was able to get a behind the scenes look at all of the preparation that goes into setting up for a runway show. This was my first time going backstage and to have the opportunity to do so before the Ruby Fang presentation, was beyond exciting. Surprisingly, though there was so much going on from making up the models, steaming the garments, and rehearsing the actual order of the walk, there was also a calmness among the room which gave a sense that everyone knew exactly what they needed to get done to have a successful production. I honestly still get amazed by all of the genuine connections I’ve made just from being a part of the blogger/fashion industry and I’m truly grateful for the experiences I’ve had thus far as well as the knowledge I’ve gained along the way.
My last day ended with another fashion week favorite of mine, Dan Liu. He always incorporates theatrics and creates a true story with his shows that make them truly memorable and for me, the perfect note to end my NYFW on. For this show I wore my boldest outfit yet; a bright magenta suit paired with red sneakers and sunnies to match. I layered a lace top under the suit and for maximum color saturation, added a hot pink bag to finish the look. This may have been my most enjoyable season because I told myself from the very beginning that I would not stress myself out. I made it a point to only take on what I could handle and if I missed a show or two, I didn’t allow the fomo or guilt to consume me. It was due to this mindset that I was able to get through the week relaxed and level-headed from start to finish. I’m definitely looking forward to what February has in store as well as the possibility of checking out a few new cities for fashion week next year. I hope you enjoyed my recap and until next time!
