NYFW Diary: Day 3

NYFW Diary: Day 3

Day three was a light one. I only went to one show, a Chinese designer Taoray Wang, whom I’d never heard of before – which I like.

The show as a whole was an interesting experience for me. Weeks back I actually met Susan Shin who’s PR agency was putting it on. We were at a dinner with mutual friends and got to talking. Fast forward to fashion week and there I am sitting in prime runway real estate, next to … I’ll use the term celebrities here … though I had no idea who they were. They had statement sunnies and body guards and the press were falling over them. Guaranteed I’m photo bombing half those shots like a deer in the headlights, with my three-day old hair and track pants from last season.

Anywho… thoughts on the clothing (cause that’s what we’re all there for right?!??) Half of it I was into. The other half had bows. The belts were a highlight for me. Actually, do we call these belts? Waists cinchers? Whatever they are, I want one.

After the show I went home, laid on my couch and ordered Poke rice paper rolls, because I’m over poke bowls, and you know … my horizons are broad.

NYFW Diary: Day 2

NYFW Diary: Day 2

Day 2 I channelled big bird. And ran into Tess who coincidentally was feeling the lemon pallet too.

I watched my favourite show of the week this day – GCDS – literally wanted to follow the models back stage and peel the clothes right off of them. This is what a love about fashion week, falling in love with a designer ‘court’ side. Have a look at this snippet from the show and see what you think.

After the show I went to Banter and ate this. Then I strolled on over to Concept Korea, popped into the Milly presentation and landed at the WWD x Samsung Party. I drank two glasses of Sav Blanc and made the very important decision to ditch my evening events for pasta.

 A bowl of spaghetti and scallops later I was once again, in bed. Party – Animal.

NYFW Diary: Day 1

NYFW Diary: Day 1

First day of NYFW seems like a life time ago, but we’re still only on Day 5. Well, the rest of the fashion world is on Day 5. I’m hiding out in my apartment, still in my track pants at 3pm, playing catch up on life.

So let’s rewind to Day 1…

I went to brunch with Shopbop and ate mini pancake stacks covered in chocolate. Then I ran to the Cinq à Sept Presentation on the rooftop of the Beekman Hotel which was tres chic – I mean, look at thisThen I headed to the Noon by Noor show which really made me want one of these. Then I somehow apparated to midtown for a very exciting new project I’m working on which I’ll be sharing soon, whoop! Then flew back for the Tadashi showThen I hit the rooftop of the New Museum for a beauty event, then crawled to the Shopbop cocktail party where I drank something that tasted like pop rocks before rolling myself into a hurst and heading home.

I was in bed at 8:30pm.

And this is what I wore – Natasha Zinko, she’s so cool guys, you gotta check out her stuff!

These Little Birdies

These Little Birdies

You know that expression ‘walking on a cloud?’ Well whoever said that was wearing a pair of Allbirds. They’re indisputably the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet, and I’ve taken many-a-shoe for a spin.

Interestingly enough, despite their athleisure appearance, they’re not ‘performance’ shoes. I say ‘interestingly’ as I feel more compelled to walk around the city in them, than any one runner has ever obliged me to. And if something has inspired exercise in my life, that is worth writing about.

So why so comfy? Well they’re made from super soft merino wool, they weigh next to nothing and they’re designed for you to go sock-less. What an invention.
