I love fashion shows and dreamed about attending the New York Fashion Week (NYFW). Less than a week before the September 2017 shows started this year, I decided this was the year I was going to make it happen. I don’t know how but I was able to pull it off. Here’s the New York Fashion Week SS18 Recap.
I’m so grateful I found the help that I needed in the nick of time. I wouldn’t have been able to attend the shows without knowing these tips and I know these tips on what to wear to NYFW. Of course, I’m grateful for the few friends who encouraged me to go, helped me pack mentally, and were ready to be my photographer on a day notice.

Day 2 at NYFW
Galtiscopio Runway Show SS18 Collection – The collection was jewel-embellished and 90s inspired. Can we all start walking around with our headphones? The designer is well-known in the music world so that explains the performances by Ray J and King Combs. She plans on bringing the brand to Beverly Hills, CA.
Concept Korea Runway Show SS18 Collection – A collective of talented Korean designers burning the best K-Fashion has to offer to NYFW. I loved how diverse the models were.
Day 3 at NYFW
Leanne Marshall Runway Show SS18 Collection – Possibly my favorite show with all the colorful chiffon dresses. Can it be spring all over again? I’m absolutely obsessed with chiffon and love the diamond-cut details. The designer is a Cali girl, who you might know from Project Runway.
If you’re attending a show at Skylight at Clarkson Square, I suggest you arrive since there are so many fun things to do there. This season, you could make a hair statement with TRESemme, be a star in a video by E! and have a lavender latte while you wait for your personalized handwritten cards courtesy of Papyrus.
The biggest lesson, which can be a life lesson: if it’s supposed to happen, it will happen, and all you’ve to do is show up. You can’t plan out everything. Like the Sunday 10 am show that I thought for sure I was getting in, I didn’t. But the show that was overbooked, I got it. I’m so grateful I show up!
Who is ready to join me next season?
