NEW YORK FASHION WEEK DIARY (PART 2)

New York Fashion Week 2015

I remember my first time entering a huge fashion show venue like this in New York, I was stunned and so overwhelmed. Gorgeous LED lighting setup, bright camera flashes everywhere, and a big room full of fashionistas. Not to mention stunning Hollywood celebrities sitting in the front row. It's hard not to feel intimidated if you are a first-timer. That was what I felt like last year. This year, I became more confident and more familiar with what was happening around me. Excitement, however, was still in the air. 

You have seen my first two days in New York, but they were only "appetizers". It's time for the main course.

Starting my day 3 (which is actually NYFW Day 5) in this beautiful floral silk pantsuit. It was a long and tiring, but fun day for me. 


I attended Concept Korea's fashion show in the morning



and joined an interview with a local media afterwards. Unfortunately, I forgot to ask what channel they were shooting for so I didn't know how this video turned out. I hope it's good. 


Leaving Skylight Moynihan Station after the first show, I quickly went back to my hotel for a quick outfit change and headed to another show in the afternoon. 


Dennis Basso Spring- Summer 2016 fashion show. I was fortunate to attend his show last year and this year. His collection mesmerizes me every time. Perfection in every single detail. 


The Hilton sisters were also at his show. We were actually walking side by side, except they had so many bodyguards around them and I had none. Paris Hilton is actually quite friendly. 


After Dennis Basso's fashion show, I went to have another outfit changed so that I could do a photoshoot with my friend, who is a famous fashion blogger in the US, Hallie Daily

Crossing the road in style in fringe, leather, and lace outfit


New day, new outfit. The most common question that I was asked whenever I walked to the show: "Excuse me, Miss. Can I have a photo of your outfit?"

As usual, outfit change for an evening event with Hanley Mellon. After running around the Manhattan streets in heels for 6 days, my feet decided to give up on me and demanded a special treat. This white pair of sneakers made my feet jump for joy. It was one of the best purchases I made on this trip. 


Day 6 began with one of the fashion shows that I was looking forward to attending: Stella Nolasco Spring- Summer 2016. I had a chance to chat with the fashion designer, learned about her designs, and watched the entire show progress from the beginning to the end. It was simply fascinating! 

Gorgeous models lined up backstage. 


Christian Louboutin, every girl's dream shoes were on the floor. Those red hearts and red soles are to die for. 


Posing with the most stunning fashion designer that I've ever met: Stella Nolasco. She is super friendly, sweet, and kind. 


Her designs are as beautiful and stunning as she is. 


My pretty front-row seatmates, whom I met at the show: Daisy and Valeria. 


The most memorable day of my fashion week experiece was this interview with renowned fashion designer, Zac Posen. I shared a few things that you might not know about my interview with Zac Posen


I still can't believe that this dream came true. Most importantly, it made me realize that nothing is impossible as long as we keep chasing our dream and working hard to achieve it. 


I wanted to spend 2 days to explore New York and to do what a tourist normally does, but like last year, I didn't have much time to do so. At least, I had 30 minutes to visit Central Park


an hour to explore Brooklyn


and perhaps, fifteen minutes spending at this iconic place, Empire State Building. 





I guess that was good enough this time. Leaving many other places undiscovered will be a good reason for me to come back to New York again. 

See you soon next year, Big Apple! 

In case you want to see everything in action, my team and I actually filmed the entire fashion week when we were there. Please watch and let me know what you think!
