Today I am recapping my experience at my first ever NYFW!
I attended on behalf of The Hunt, a community that tracks down the things you covet simply through a photo, to be their guest instagrammer. See my photos here. I loved being part of The Hunt's family. They are so kind, and I love the concept of their work. Today, I did a hunt for a font, and minutes later it was found. So innovative and practical.
I had a great time, was inspired by the shows I attended, and street style alike. New York City is one of my favorite places in the world, and being in the heart of it for a few days, taking cabs, walking in a fast paced crowd, and eating street food is music to my ears.
The main trend for Spring 2014 that I picked up on was black and white. Solids taking over patterns, French simplicity and sophistication taking precedence over American laid back coolness, structured and loose fitting cuts saying bye to bodycon styles we have seen years past. Pointy toes continue to adorn feminine feet, while heels are shorter and take a closer approach to kitty heels than stilettos. Leather sustains its ground and is vividly advanced through pops of colors like this fushia Kat Lionovich number. Other sighted trends were crop tops, crop statement jackets and satin.
Amongst many bloggers I met, Wendy was one of the kindest and ever inspiring!
NWFW was filled with parties, dinners, meetings and the like, but this one was special, as I got to dine with part of the Glam Media team, and chat with these sweet girls who I had virtually known for a long time.
If you've never felt like a celebrity, fret not, because outside the Lincoln Road center, the paparazzi will make you feel up to par with the likes of Nikki and Paris Hilton, and Jessica Alba, who were frequently sighted along this hallway.
And this photo of me getting in a cab, having a Carrie Bradshaw moment circulated all the way back to the Huffington Post.
I stopped by a couple of showrooms, and snapped a quick photo to show you guys what it looks like! The concept of showrooms is that you go to pull pieces to wear to that designer's show.
And of course, "big lights will inspire you..."
And lastly, a quick street scene shot on my first night there. NY architecture knows no bounds on loveliness!
