Yes, I attended the one & only New York Fashion Week. I am still on cloud nine and still recovering from my first New York Fashion Week. I traveled with my built in road dog (aka my mom) who is literally the best work travel buddy ever. I interned with Fashion Gallery New York Fashion Week’s social media team. Our tasks were to capture pictures, boomerangs, videos of the all the behind the scenes action, sponsors including makeup, beverages, nail artist, makeup artist, models, designers, and much more.
Technically, we have been to NYFW before, but not like this.
My NYFW Experience went a little something like this….
Portal charger, Business cards, Powder, Small Notebook (which came in handy), Lipstick (always and I mean always re-apply before taking a picture), Cough Drops, Small Bag (to fit inside of another bag for miscellaneous items like gum, a pen and etc.) and of course handy dandy tea or coffee.
DAY ONE- Arrival Day & Production Meeting
DAY TWO- Faviana Visit, WWD Style Dimension Panel, Ann Taylor X Style Collective + Outfit Details
I’ve been a Faviana brand ambassador for almost three years now and I love my Faviana family. They have partnered me with a store in Virginia Beach, Virginia called All the Rage Stores… I love their #girlsngowns campaigns. Faviana’s showroom is gorgeous and I most definitely enjoyed playing dress up. #celebrateyourself
Women’s Wear Daily hosted a WWD Style Dimension Panel at the Cadillac House in SoHo. We went to the “Cutting Through The Clutter: How To Make Social Media A Meaningful Part Of Your Brand” with Sophia Chabbott, WWD Digital Director, Court Williams, Creative Lead for Luxury Fashion of Instagram, and Rebecca Minkoff, Designer. We had the chance to meet the coordinator of the event Terry (fifth picture). Court Williams (second picture) and Terry (fifth picture) were super nice and so personable. Side bar: Thank you Sophia Chabbott for taken our picture and for knowing to use portrait mode lol. She knows her stuff you guys!

Overall, I loved seeing the innerworkings of a production company especially with such an array of sponsors. A lot of hard work goes into producing a fashion show especially during New York Fashion Week. I have learned more about branding and social media. Networking and meeting new people was the best part!!! When talking to some of the models and interns, it was great to hear we all were there for the exposure and to learn more. So blessed and grateful for this opportunity. Until September… see you then!!
