NYFW is officially in full swing.
Shows on shows are happening simultaneously, fashion lovers are scrambling to access most of them, and style — on the runways and streets — is at a bi-yearly high.
Twice a year I crave these dates. While living in Manhattan last year, I attempted to talk my roommates into trying to sneak into NYFW, namely the DKNY show on 26th Street. Shockingly, that didn’t pan out.
Oh, but how one designer is changing it up and bringing new possibilities.
Givenchy’s show, a first for NYFW, also marks the opening of their flagship store on Madison Avenue. Making moves, Riccardo Tisci, partnered with NYCgo.com, gave away several hundred invitations to Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, slated for tonight at 6 p.m.
Unfortunately my fumbling at the computer on Sept. 2 did not secure an invitation. Fortunately, however, the show will be live-streamed. And for that show, here’s what I’ll be wearing:
Mixed textures and a bold print work well together for this look, finished with hints of gold. Shout out to Mary Orton from Memorandum, who inspired me.
Most importantly, please remember to pause and pray for the families disrupted by the 9/11 terror attacks, to remember the heroic lives lost. It goes without saying that today is a day forever remembered by Americans, first responders, and many others all over the world.
