Living in NYC has been one of the best choices I’ve ever made. Fashion Week has once again rolled around and I’ve been able to get my hands dirty not only looking through style.com pictures of the activities, but putting myself in the middle of the action. After three full years at fashion school you’d think I’d always be this proactive, but this is only my third season participating.
Today is the first time my name has really been put on a fashion show’s list so I decided to dress super nice in a dress that I’ve never actually worn out before. The studio I first interned at, Francis by Christian Francis Roth, is now defunct but I’ve managed to get my hands on one of my absolute favorite, sophisticated pieces before they were all gone. I’m especially excited to wear this to an internship, I feel so professional, hah.
Anyway, so here’s my profession-edgy approach to fashion week. I chose to be fairly basic because I feel like I tend to over-do things-it’s the art school approach. Hipster-hobo chic. But that’s definitely not the journalistic approach and fashion week is all for the journalists, not the designers. So I’m faking it until I make it.
