There’s nothing like the swishy sound of a silk skirt as a model strides past you on the runway.
As much as I love the expertly produced shows, I’ll be the first to say that it’s not all glitz and glamour during fashion week. Mostly it’s a 12+ hour day rushing around the city, then you edit photos, try to sleep a few hours, and then get back up in the morning and do it all over again.
It’s a lot of work, but I love the thrill right as the lights come up and the first model steps out. It never fails to put a smile on my face.
Spring 2016 is less than three weeks away. To be honest, I’m hoping for a very low-key season. I won’t be able to attend most shows during the day, and I would really love to spend a bit of time seeing friends for longer than three minutes before we have to rush off to our next destinations.
If you’ll be attending fashion week in New York, I’d love to meet up with you if our schedules allow it. My favorite thing about having this blog has always been the people I’ve met because of it, and I want to make that a priority again.
If you want to see some gorgeous past seasons of presentations and shows (and a few crazed backstage experiences, too), you can browse them all here. My most memorable show of all time still remains Marc Jacobs Spring 2014.
