Fashion Week

Zanita x Nordstrom: New York Fashion Week Diary

I can’t believe my time in New York City is drawing to a close—the whole trip here has been a fashion-filled blur! Each day was packed with meetings, shows, street-style shoots and hours and hours of being stuck in traffic. I stayed in SoHo, which usually would be great, but there was a lovely Italian festival happening during my entire stay and my street and those surrounding it were all closed off. Guess I can consider walking those extra few blocks in stilettos to be my daily workout!

Highlights for these past days include scoring time for some proper meals—my favorite being mozzarella bufala and tomato, which I feel is an appropriate dish for any hour of the day.

I also loved sitting front row at Tommy Hilfiger with the crème-de-la-crème of fashion bloggers. In order left to right: Jules (Sincerely, Jules), Aimee (Song of Style), Chriselle (The Chriselle Factor), Chiara (The Blonde Salad), Jessica (Tuula) and Nicole (Gary Pepper Girl). Talk about power in digital influence!

As well, I had the chance to see the MARC BY MARC JACOBS show in a steamy warehouse (did someone say 95 °F outside today?).

I was able to attend the Burberry party too, which featured an incredible performance by Tom Odell, and I got to hang out with my friends Camille (Camille Over the Rainbow), Carolina (Fashion Squad), Chiara and Natalie Joos (Tales of Endearment).

I’m grateful to have been part of this crazy scene here in New York, and I’m looking forward to getting thrown into the fashion fun in London tomorrow! Heading off for my red-eye flight now—you gotta do what you gotta do. Fashion knows no pain. Loving it all!
