New York Fashion Week
Sure, maybe you don’t live on fashion trends, but you must know it’s Fashion Week. Why else would everyone you pass on the street be looking like they just stepped off the page of a fashion magazine?
So just for a moment, step back and take a deep breath. We will not entertain you with our best glamor fashion glitz reviews and schedules – hey, there are websites that do a fab job of that already. If you doubt us, check out live fashion shows at http://nyfw.com.
We are for democracy and feel there is space for everyone in the fashion world. For example, take a gander at NYPOST. We couldn’t have said it better “And along with the editors, buyers, models, makeup artists and celebrities who descend upon the city comes the usual litany of gripes from jaded fashionistas: There are too many C-listers and Instagram stars, the schedule is too chaotic.
Ralph Lauren is showing in Bedford, NY (gasp), Joseph Altuzarra and Thom Browne have left for Paris (double gasp), Narciso Rodriguez isn’t even bothering with a runway (We can’t even start on this…)”.
While the socialites and fashionistas were scrambling for the latest trends, we stopped by the Paragon Sports Warehouse sale. While it may not be the hippest venue in NYC, check out our post on our experience.
Keep in mind that once the Fashion Week concludes, the fabulous Sample Season starts – so get your chic on and get ready to realize your wildest fashion dreams.
Our pick for this week is Maiyet + Eberjey Sample Sale, because I sleep (and sometimes write these articles) in their comfy pajamas.

Shanina Shaik was photographed wearing Modern Vice while attending the Marchesa show at New York Fashion Week in New York City. The model paired her elegant couture gown with the Original Bold Boot ($398) for an unexpectedly chic look.

After few moments of confusion, I finally realized the sample sale shares the same address with the Arno restaurant. A few steps down and I was in the Arno Ballroom. The space is rather elegant, at least by sample sale standards. What I didn’t expect was the young ladies walking around modeling underwear. But, here they were, and I had to admit it wasn’t a bad idea. The mood was rather energetic as I was there at the end of what was a successful private event, and the organizers were seemingly replacing inventory and putting order in the merchandise.
I was reassured that there were plenty of sizes, for everybody but I also noticed quite a few unique items. From basic (well, as basic as La Perla could be) bras and panties, to slips, swimming wear, silk pajamas to rather unexpected shoes, linen pants and one handbag. I think I have seen enough merchandise to get you interested. The organizers brought the inventory from Italy, and certainly, at least some of the items, had a distinct European style. If you miss this sale, La Perla Fashion Week Sample Sale will be back in Spring.
WHEN: 9/12 – 9/14; Tue-Th (10-6)
WHERE: Arno’s Ballroom
141 West 38th Street
Corner of Broadway
New York, NY 10018

Let’s face it – We don’t all get invited to fashion shows. But, do not despair, NYC is a fashion mecca AND a cultural capital. There is so much to do and explore this New York Fashion Week – think Broadway Theater, Times Square, and the Metropolitan Museum of the Art. There are fashion galleries galore! Here are just few ideas
1. Why not check out “Changers”, a story set in dance and an oh-so perfect addition to your Fashion Week sched? The show is a synergy between Spike Jonze and Opening Ceremony founders Humberto Leon & Carol Lim and runs from Sept 11th through Sept 15th. Tickets can be snatched up at PurplePass.com.
2. Another idea is the annual brunch with designer Marissa Noir. This affair, occurring on September 16th, marks the end of the New York Fashion Week, and you can enjoy a 5-star 3 course meal while watching her latest creations. Grab your tickets at Eventbrite.com.
3.. Why not catch the New York Fashion Week Closing Rooftop Party in the Sky Room on Friday Sep 15th at 10:00PM? Although they have a casual dress code, expect to see the city’s best fashionistas in their full glory proudly walking the stage and crowd.
Here you go! No need to cry your Tom Ford SS 18 Fashion Show invitation got lost in mail.
