Last year, I added NYFW for the first time. With NYFW wrapping up, I thought I’d share my outfits and also how to navigate fashion week as a new blogger!
How to Navigate Fashion Week as a New Blogger
I have to say looking back at this trip, I was so worn out but running on adrenaline at the same time. One key memory I remember getting in a cab at one point and all my emotions hit and I finally felt like I made the right decision in becoming a influencer, I felt so fulfilled in that moment. Happy tears where definitely flowing. This is not a career move for someone that doesn’t work HARD. It takes so much dedication and persistent for years. It’s just this year, 3 years in that I’m start to get a little more of a groove and a focus.
But First….Here are all my looks from NY fashion week!
TIP 1: Work with Your Local Boutiques
The boutique buyers have contacts and if you build relationships with them they might be able to get you in the door to some shows. Sometimes they are also going and are offered tickets that they pass up or have contacts and can ask for representation in their place! This is why it’s always important to shop locally and build those connections! It paid off for me so much!
Also, another great way is to showcase their fashion pieces during fashion week! It’s such great exposure for them to get their name out there in the especially because so many have call to ship or an online presence and also working in their benefit for great content for them to share with their followers and urge them to shop the pieces!
Tip 2: Make it a Girls Trip
As a new blogger, you may not be in the in crowd of all the fashion bloggers traveling together and frankly I don’t know if I’ll ever be that girl. So for my first trip I invited my bestie and my photographer to join along! It was so amazing. With living in NYC for 3 years and traveling back and forth to NY for work for another 10 years, I loved sharing my favorite restaurants and where I used to live! Always, at the end fo the day, I felt so secure having them there!
