As my favorite month of the year (fashion month aka September) comes to an end, I have finally been able to compose a photo diary for you. This season I was helping backstage for Libertine and Baja East! Like last season my experience was surreal. The energy that NYFW exudes is like nothing else. The Libertine show was fantastic. There is something about the Libertine show that transports you to a different place. Only good vibes and originality are allowed. I think that SS17 was one of Libertine's strongest collections. At Baja East, the show was in a parking garage which was crazy. The grungy, dark aesthetic was perfection for the Baja East show. The models had black greased eyelids and wore headbands to emphasize the nonchalant dirty-chic look. The collection was effortlessly chic. (exciting side note: Baja East posted my photo on their insta!) I was fortunate enough to attend the Jill Stuart show as a guest. The cuts were very sleek and clean. My favorite pieces from her collection were the two white looks below. The color scheme was light and springy. To end the week in celebration I attended the Zang Toi after party with Hannah at The Sixty Hotel. The hotel's decor was sophisticated with a splash of vintage. My overall experience of this season was extraordinary! Please enjoy my photo diary of the week!
