What days are your favorite designers are showing?  Where to watch from home?  I’ve got all the details.

Whenever Fashion Week comes around, it always makes me reminisce of the hustle and bustle of preparing for an upcoming event, gala, photoshoot, or runway show; whatever the occasion, it is always exciting and it is always nonstop everything.

NYFW is a super exciting time of year where we all tune in right before Springtime to take notes on what’s going to be trending for the season.  Here is my condensed version of the NYFW shows by day highlighting name brand designers and designers to look out for:

My Most Memorable Moments in the Industry

I’ve been blessed with many wonderful opportunities that have come my way since my very first fashion internship abroad in Hong Kong Summer 2011 where I worked with a design team designing menswear knits.  Years later I attended/worked my very first fashion show 2015- which was a local Fashion X Dallas fashion show, presenting all local designers.

Overseas

Getting to visit the knit factory in mainland China was by far, and is still by far one of the coolest things I have yet the experience.

Runway and Editorial 

This past year, I had the opportunity to work with up and coming designers Nine Muses Collection several times, assisting styling in their editorial, campaign, and runway.  They put on a beautiful and inspiring show this past Fall at the Perot Museum and I was fortunate to be a part of the production.  Designers Jerry Matthews and Francesca Viamonte quickly became friends and mentors to me, people that inspired me in every way possible with their aesthetic, hard work, and teamwork.

Photoshoots

The first photoshoot I worked that I had real creative freedom with was during an internship at a design firm in Dallas.  I loved being able to see the photographer, stylist, and everybody else involved’s creative vision come alive.  It was the first time I was able to truly get a hands on experience, and it was during this internship that I decided I wanted to pursue fashion styling.

Have you checked out Balmain (designer Olivier Rousteing)’s new accessory campaign yet?  It is my new inspiration for everything.
