Five shows and six presentations equals a lot of fashion squeezed into 3 short days. Instead of sharing the “pro shots” you can find online at Style or Vogue, I thought I would share my personal vantage point for each show I attended. Where you sit or stand during fashion week can vary vastly (unless you are a huge blogger with millions of followers…then, you’re probably in the front row). It mostly depends on your relationship with the designer, your relationship with the designer’s PR and/or your following and past coverage of the designer. So, while you may be in the front row at one show, you can very well be standing way in the back at the next. It keeps things interesting. Presentations, on the other hand, are a 1-2 hour block where the models stay in one space and the guests come and go. While presentations are fantastic for photos (the models are standing still versus strutting down a runway), there’s something special about the energy of a show; it can’t be beat. Here are my pics from where I sat or stood during NYFW. Which designer is your favorite?
