NYFW In A Nutshell: A Blogger and Former Designer Perspective

Hello Girlies and Fashionistos

So Fashion Week is almost here and this is basically one of the few posts i’ll be posting before the mayhem begins. Fall Fashion Week which happens in the end of the first week of February is known as the precursor to be all, become all of fashion. It’s large but not as large as Spring but it definitely makes the statement on who’s in and who’s out. Young designers are prepping their debut collections at this time, garnering knowledge of the industry, and how to sell. On the bloggers and journalist side. It’s the time to be critical and make or break these talented young people. Oh. The celebrities come in too. 

From a particular view of a blogger…

“The press and buyers are saying there are too many shows, and that means too much cabbing and walking! Then you have to fly from New York to London, then to Milan, and then to Paris! And if that’s not everyone’s version of a human hell, we don’t know what is!

And then there’s the whole “endless-wait” issue. If you’re anything like most people, you probably want a new tennis outfit every couple of weeks. And you’ll need a top hat for the cotillion, and since those are held semi-weekly, you may need the one with the red bow, and also the one carved out of a single Osaka pearl.”

By Pablo Avion @NewYorkFashionWeekLive

 -This is very typical on a  bloggers perspective on how fashion week works. 

Here is the 2014 Fashion Week “sched!” (That’s “cool-speak” for schedule! It’s pronounced “sked,” or maybe “skej,” we’re not really sure yet.) Well lets just say the fake one.

Well, here it is! The schedule for 2014 Fashion Week NYC that hasn’t even been released! Enjoy!

  • 10 AM – Having to carry a backpack everywhere sort of ruins the glamorous vibe
  • 2:30 PM – “Knishes” aren’t so delicious … heeey, that rhymes … kind-of!
  • 7 PM – I’m so tired of Tweeting and Instagramming I wish I could poke myself in the eyes with a sharp stick
  • 9:30 PM – Okay, I mostly had a good time
  • 11:30 AM – People watching on their computer actually have it pretty good
  • 4:30 PM – I really enjoyed all these great New York Fashion Week shows, mostly!

Isn’t that fabulous…

Now on my perspective as a former designer.


-Can you walk? Can you fit? Please tell me yes.


– Damn dress isn’t fitting. I need more thread. Where’s the tape.


-Isn’t that fabulous. Please don’t fall.



-Thank god its over. Fuck, where’s my shoes and outfit. FUUUUUCK!

Pretty much seals the deal.
