Highlights of my NYFW

I have a feeling that in NYC time goes by faster than everywhere else, and I am always surprised by how soon New York Fashion Week comes around again and again. Although its a pretty busy time for me, and it can also be very hard when is extremely cold or snowing, I love that week so much. Before I moved to NYC I used to dream about going to the shows and seeing the collections on the runway, so I try to keep that dream alive and appreciate the bright side of it. 

This season I was really happy to see the show of Noon by Noor and Leanne Marshall again. The clothes at Noon by Noor were so modern and on point, I could wear everything! And it was great to see Leanne Marshall's show for the 4th time in a row. She's so good with the drape of her gowns and they are always flowy. I also love how this time she introduced some pants and bright reds to her collection. Maybe its a reflection of the power woman that she's becoming.

Another show that I was so pleased with was Farm's presentation. Farm is a Brazilian brand and they have really cool prints and pieces to rock at the beach or on a tropical vacation.

Lastly, my favorite moment of fashion week was to have the opportunity to be at the Public School backstage ( huge thanks Aveda). I always love to go to the backstages and see the show being prepared, but Public School was such a cool experience. I am a big admirer o Maxwell Osbourne and Dao-Yi Chow so it was nice to see them working from close. The Aveda team was lovely as always and they made the models look even more gorgeous than they already are. And I got to see the clothes first hand as the models were making their way to the catwalk. The clothes were dope as usual, but this time with a special message: "Make America New York". We definitely need to keep reminding each other about love and resistance, and I was beyond happy seeing this message on Public School show. I can't wait to get one of those hats.
