I have been to New York so many times but for some reason or the other, never have had a chance to explore Central Park properly. It has always been a quick stroll or to watch the skaters gracefully glide
With each season as I attend the Fashion Week, I fall more in love and awe for this world. To me – it’s just not about
Outfit details : sunnies via Ditto ( use the code LOVEPLAYINGDRESSUP to get a free month of unlimited designer sunglasses), Shabby Apple dress -c/o, Happiness Boutique necklace – c/o, clutch, Topshop pumps,
Never in a million years, when I was sitting back at home in India or studying late at night on my masters project at Northeastern, had I imagined actually attending Fashion Week.
There’s just something about Fashion Week. Its like Disneyland – with an extremely high glam quotient! the packed schedule, running between shows, the shows, models, throngs of photographers, meetings, everything..I love it all. The blog has given me so many exciting opportunities and getting to go to Fashion Week is definitely somewhere on the top. I had some really wonderful moments and to be extremely honest , there were some not so wonderful ones as well. Read why…
Favorite Moments ( not in any particular order )
1. getting invited! – When I started writing Love Playing Dressup, I had thought to myself that if I get invited to an actual Fashion Show – that would mean something. It felt like a milestone. Couldn’t even begin to tell you how excited I was! =))
2. Kate Spade Presentation
3. Front Row Seats at Mongol & Reem Acra – Oh My God! Front. Row
4. Amit driving me down to New York in the middle of a snow storm – I must have said this a million times, but this blog wouldnt exist if it weren’t for him So thank you A!
6. hair game at Mara Hoffman & classy vibe at Zimmermann
and now .. some Not so Favorite Moments
1. the weather – unbearable cold coupled with running to shows in heels = brain freeze + getting some real feet hatred
2. losing new leather gloves – and then having to make do all day with street bought ugly manly ones
3. missing dinner with Anna Wintour… ok that’s just plain lie. coz you know who can miss having dinner with miss A. =)) But not even catching a glimpse of AW or David Beckham.. knowing they were right there !!! blahhhhh
Now – the last and the MOST CRAZY and MEMORABLE ONE – I FELL ON THE RUNWAY DURING A SHOW
This is NOT a joke. I was in the 3rd row for the Cushnie Et Ochs show and got up to take a better picture. Then something happened… slipped and fell directly-face-down on the runway hitting a photographer – thank god!! coz that’s what stopped me from falling in front of a model and making her trip or worse yet… walk over me! I am so sure someone caught the whole scene and it’s just a matter of time before they upload it on YouTube as the “girl who fell during fashion week”!! Now that I think about it…this actually might be my most favorite moment there!
