NYC: Fashion Week

September 8-11, 2011

I love fashion week. Being in NYC in September, the epitome of all fashion seasons, during not only Fashion’s Night Out but also Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is amazing.

This was my second time coming to NYC for fashion week where I had the opportunity to work backstage and help put on some pretty awesome fashion shows (like Monique Lhuillier).

If you check out the links at the bottom of this post, you will be able to see all the details of what I got to see.

Also, FNO was pretty fun. Major parts of lower Manhattan literally had streets closed and all the streets of Soho were blocked off and full of people. Only in NYC

PS: This time I did get to see Central Park!

September is finally here and that means that fall is here as well. With fall comes my favorite event: Fall Fashion Week.  I have been blessed with the opportunity to go to New York City for Mercedes-Benz Fall Fashion Week. This opportunity has given me the chance to learn how to put on fashion shows, work backstage with numerous crews, see gorgeous clothes and see famous fashion shows.

September also means that I get to be in the big city for Fashion’s Night Out. This iconic event is where everyone from you and I, to models, designers, celebrities, and fashionistas, come together on September 6,  and flood stores in cities all across the country and around the world. FNO was founded four years ago in New York City by Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The incentive behind creating this global celebration of fashion was to help boost the economy and consumer confidence. Cities across the globe participate to put on fabulous in store events and promotions. Last year’s bash featured events in eighteen countries and more than 4,500 events here in the States.
