My trip to New York Fashion Week was shorter this season then usual. I have stepped up to be troop leader for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop, and everything seemed to happen the week of fashion week. I was required to be home, to lead the troop, for service unit activities and to kick off the new scout year.
Thankfully, I was able to get to New York for the weekend shows. Although I watch many shows via You Tube, there is nothing like seeing the clothing on the runway. When I can see the fabrics, stitching, and movement of the silhouettes up close, it is easier for me to report on the collections, and incoming trends, for you.
These are the shows I was so thankful to be able to attend. I will share my favorite look from each collection. In some cases, I was only able to get a final walk video on my phone. My seating ranges from front row to standing room, so depending on where I was placed, results in the quality of photos I can show you.
Day one: I woke up at 4am and drove with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun to the airport for a 7am flight. I landed at 3:30pm in New York, caught a Taxi, checked into the hotel, and jammed over to my first show at 6pm. It was an exhausting, but productive day!

Day two: This was a heavy schedule! I saw five shows and attended the rewardStyle rooftop party where I met up with fellow bloggers. I arrived late after a show, and left early to get to another show. It was a whirlwind!

Day three: This was a heavy schedule too. I attended seven shows; it would have been eight but I had a logistical issue getting to one. Yikes!

I also attended Rinat Brodach but was unable to get photos or video due to the lighting at the presentation. The CAAFD Showcase is the one I missed due to logistics. Many of the shows are spread apart throughout lower Manhattan, so it isn’t always easy to get from show to show; especially if one runs late; and they always run late. It was a whirlwind trip and so much fun! I will definitely be bringing you more NYFW coverage, as well as continuing to talk about our present fall season.
Thanks for stopping by!
