Technically the Rebecca Minkoff and Tommy Hilfiger Spring runway shows were not a part of New York Fashion Week because they were both held in LA, but I wanted to make sure I also included all of my fashion month events, regardless of location! My NYFW started off a bit chaotic, there was a really bad snowstorm in NY the night I was supposed to leave from LA and my flight was cancelled. I didn't end up making it to NY until the evening of the first day and only made it to one event because of it. Also, the airline lost one of my bags filled with mainly shoes and I was trying not to stress out! Thankfully, they found it 48 hours later on a different flight. It wouldn't be NYFW with a little mishap :) Here's a little peak into the first few events to kick off the week:
This was such a fun show, held at the Grove. It was a see-now-buy-now show, meaning the audience was able to shop the collection right after it debuted on the runway. It was such a relaxed and gorgeous California girl collection with an empowering message for women. The handbags featured text that stated the “The Future is Female.” and the music was incorporated a powerful message as well! Overall, each piece was flirty, fun and o-so versatile.

The Tommy Hilfiger Spring runway show was held on the Venice Beach boardwalk and was literally so amazing! The entire boardwalk area was converted into ‘Tommyland' and it really felt like you were stepping into a different world inside the show area. So many cool lights, decor and very 70s beach vibe. I also loved seeing Gigi, Bella and Joan all walk in the show!
The show featured the TommyxGigi collection and the show was inspired to move from New York to LA because of Gigi. Just like the location, the collection featured a southern California, laid-back vibe. Fergie put on a surprise performance right after the show- the whole night was such a fun experience and so well done. The show was also see-now-buy-now and you can shop it HERE!
I wore an entire Tommy Hilfiger look that will be available soon.
After my cancelled flight and finally arriving to New York, the first and only event I made it to was Rag & Bone. This was nothing like Rag & Bone has done in the past in a completely refreshing way- it was an exhibition of many photographs that featured many of Marcus Wainwright's (CEO and creative director) friends and those who had worked with the brand since it's start in 2002, wearing the new collection. One wall was completely covered floor to ceiling with pictures! Each wall had history and a bit of insight about the brand- it was a very cool idea!
