Ready for Fashion Week?

the runway at fashion week

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.

backstage at fashion week

As a whole, your experience at fashion week is much more like the craze of being backstage than sitting front of house.

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

      It would be so good to meet up with you! I am keeping my weekend schedule light so that I can see some friends. If you think you’ll have a light weekend, too, let’s do our best to get together!

      Haha what parties? Almost everyone I know is always too tired to go, and I’ve definitely never been invited to the exclusive ones.

      I’m keeping my weekend schedule light if you think that might be when you’ll be there. Hope we can get together!

        The past couple years i’ve gone to the reward style party, this year I’m planning on going to the Mode party. Of course they aren’t the fabulous ones, I’m sure, but I don’t have to worry about being too tired since it’s the only thing I’m there for, haha.
