Going to Fashion Week is not just about the fashion shows, but the endless inspiration around you. Even while waiting in line to get into a show, you’ll see many familiar fashion faces and tons of style inspiration up close and personal. So during the few days that I’m here, I try to squeeze as much as I can into my day. There’s a lot happening all around the city and I don’t want to miss a beat (more commonly known as FOMO).
It’s funny, the thing you need the most during fashion week is energy but there’s not much time to eat. The craziness is just a part of the journey though and you just have to be ready for it. That’s why it’s so important to at least stay hydrated. smartwater understands the mindfulness it takes to have a successful day. I always make it a point to grab the water any chance I get (and drink 1-2 bottles a day).
I’ve developed a few routine rituals for fashion week that help me get through the long days and long nights. I always make sure to stay in at least one night while I’m in New York for a little recharge. I also love to pack my favorite face masks to put on at night to keep my face feeling fresh and camera ready.
It’s those little things that make me feel good and allow me to able to focus on what I’m here for – fashion, fashion, fashion! I’m covering all of the shows I attend over on my Instagram, so come follow along @TheFashionablyBroke. 🙂
