It’s all changing folks. Once NYFW was all about the fashion insiders, buyers and celebs and then last September it all started to change with the inclusion of models who in a range of ways departed from the traditional model stereotype. Now the full impact of social media has struck and suddenly ‘exclusive’ showings are more open and members of the public are even being invited, invited I tell you, to come along and have a look.
The super fashion-savvy folk at Racked have put together a comprehensive list of all that is on offer but here’s a summary,the full article has all the details.
A range of designers are inviting you to come see their work, even Kanye West’s effort at MSG has a limited numbr of free tickets. However free viewings at specific times are available from Rebecca Minkoff and FTL Moda and Jeremy Scott is sending SUV’s around the town dressed in his new design materials. Check the Racked article for how to contact them to book and the video gives you an insight into the rise and rise of Jeremy Scott as a new star of the NYC fashion scene.
Free coffee is on offer from Perfect365 and also at Tresemme Spring Studios and free make-up touch-ups and a mini manicure from Priv.
Look out for where you can see live streaming of fashion shows or behind the scenes action because a number of hair studios and fashion orientated retail outlets are offering that plus Macy’s is hosting a Fashion Week event for Ninteenth Ammendment.
Social Media has made it impossible to keep NYFW an exclusive event and now the full implications of that are hitting home. By September expect to see every self respecting fashion outlet, hair salon and makeup station getting into the action and live streaming everything they can. Congrats on those who are already with the programme and benefitting from NYCs first big NYFW bash for the year for women.
The guys have had theirs already a couple of weeks ago but they are still finding their feet as a NYFW show in it’s own right. But they too will succumb quckly to opening out to all and sundry, because guess what, everyone but everyone in NYC is secretly a fashion model.
