NYFW ( New York Fashion Week) A dream since I was 10!
As a little girl I played Barbies just to dress her and design her house… I have love Fashion from planing my school outfits to getting dressed up for Dances or compete in Pageants! As I grew I scoured Magazines and love to window shop and of course shop! I would watch the award shows just to view the red carpet. To attend NYFW Was one of my biggest dreams. Not to just Fly to New York and be in the city the week it was happening… But to actually be apart of shows, parties, influencer parties and soak in the excitement of what Fashion week is all about!
My Dream came true when My sister called and Said “I got contracted to do Makeup for NYFW… You should come with Me!!” WHAT … Is this really happening!!! It was and so the planning, contacting and research began!) oh…. And what was I going to wear!!!! ???? Between Owning a Boutique, my contacts with Style Collective, contacts I have made over the years and of course My Sister’s (Tiana Holiday) contacts and connections we started to plan our Big week…. We had just 3 weeks to Plan and organize what would be our first vacation ever together, not to mention a dream come true for both… And we get to experience it together! Pure Joy❤️
I will be sharing our experience in 6 parts…. The Breakdown of NYFW
The Fashion Shows
My Outfits (and some of my sisters)
The shows…. This is not an easy task to get into a Show Small or Big…. So we were Blessed to attending 1 show let alone 6 shows with seats (hows have seats and standing at each show) Specially at such short notice! (God was really working for us) People work at getting into shows for months prior!
Here is a peak at the Shows I was LUCKY to attend.
The Austrian swim resort showcase
Cristina Ruales dance performance collection
Leanne Marshall Runway showcase
Sherri Hill at Gotham Hill
Anniesa Hasibuan collection at Skylight @Maynihan station THE DOCK
Seeing shows first hand and being able to see a good verity of shows, from New designers to established designers was such a treat! The Quality of clothing, the craftsmanship and detail was amazing on different levels. Some of the shows weren’t my style but you could appreciate the Craftmanship or Just one piece you could see how you would style it! I love the Venues, each so different and ALL over the city! Exciting to feel the different energy of each show and of course people watch! ( people watching is one of my favorite things! I could hear my mom telling “their story” in my head❤️) Fashion is different to everyone… Quality, design, Trendy, personal flare, affordable , expensive , classy AND at Fashion week you see it All!
Truly felt blessed to have gotten this exsperience and I have to tell you it was better then any of my hopes & dreams! Now that I have done it once and learned so much… I would love to plan really plan really prepare …I ‘ve got the bug and do it again next year! I have a better Idea of what to expect, what to pack , how to plan, what events to do again, what to show up extra early for and what to skip!
Hope you enjoyed the shows through my eyes and looking forward to Post 2 of NYFW…
