As a fashion-lover and a girl always looking for new people to meet, I decided to take a trip to NYC during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, one of the city’s biggest events. While there, I attended The Plitz New York City Fashion Week show, where 36 emerging designers showcased their fashions to the public. I saw seven designers at the showcase I attended.
The next day, I attended the Simply Stylist Fashion Networking and Panel at the W Hotel. It was created by Sarah Pollack Boyd, who wanted to bring people in the fashion industry together to network and learn from each other. I went to the VIP luncheon, sponsored by HauteLook, and then went upstairs to the room where the panel was being held. The panelists were fashion blogger Lindsey Calla, stylist Joey Tierney, Marie Claire editor Abbey Gardner, stylist Lindsay Albanese, and Cat Sadler, host of E! News. They left the attendees with great information and ways to get ahead in the fashion world.
