There is an incredible amount of organization that goes into Fashion Week and we were very impressed that it ran like clockwork. Our hats off to all involved. You made our experience stress free and a lot more enjoyable by having all your ducks in a row.
One big logistical challenge for the organizers is managing the show attendees. Even after we had a press pass, we still had to jump through a few hoops to get invitations to specific shows. For each show we then had to check in, where we were given either a seat assignment or a place in the standing section. The organizers at check in were different for each show, and still it ran smoothly.
Keeping everyone in check was a fabulous security crew. In fact, they were one of our favourite parts of the week. They were well groomed, helpful and firm, but with a wicked sense of humour (much rolling of the eyes at the stressed out organizers). Few people smile at Fashion Week, but you could count on the grins of the security guards throughout the day.
I decided to break out a fun black and cream polka dot bubble dress for our last day at Fashion Week. I matched it up with a black turtle neck, biker jacket, chevron hose, pearls, red handbag and low heeled patent knee-high boots.
The outfits that you’ve seen me wear this week are typical of my everyday work style and I didn’t purchase anything new for the occasion. I don’t usually wear black, grey and cream this much, but it was practical to coordinate outfits around this colour palette for traveling. I’ve had enough of neutrals for a while though, and I can’t wait to get into my colourful knitwear back home.
