New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is right around the corner!
My boss thinks I am actually taking a vacation. That makes me laugh. NYFW is NOT a vacation. Everything about NYFW is stressful.
WHY NYFW IS STRESSFUL:
-First you have to pack. Which means you need to think of 12 outfits for the 5 days you are going to be there. These can’t be ordinary, run of the mill outfits either. They need to stand out. They need to be exceptional. Yes it is stressful, but I thrive on it. I love being able to express my sense of style during NYFW. You can wear whatever your heart desires (google NYFW to see some of the crazy things people wear.)
-Then you have to get your schedule together. You always want to go to the best shows, you have to make showroom appointments, and you have to make personal appointments to meet with PR and brand reps. Oh and then somehow in there you need to make time for a photographer! My schedule is already jammed packed, and I still have two weeks to go!
-Hair and makeup. Need I say more? Getting up at 7-8 am every morning to start working on your hair and makeup for the day is NOT FUN. Especially if you were in meetings the previous day until midnight. Then you have to make sure you bring stuff with you so you can refresh throughout the day.
-When you are there, you are typically in heels and not-so-comfortable outfits. You are running from show to show, appointment to appointment, and are super lucky if you had a small break in there to actually grab some food and coffee! By the end of the day you can barely stand up let alone walk!
Regardless of all of this stress, planning, scheduling, and EXPENSE.. it is definitely something I look forward to every year. I feel like I am in my zone when I am there! I can’t wait to have you guys follow along this season (coming Sept 7-12).
