Fashion week in New York is one of the most anticipated events in the world. Twice a year, titans, influencers and beloved artists of the industry gather for eight days to share and celebrate the awaited designs of the season. With hundreds of shows scheduled at the official Spring Studios location (just a few blocks north of the Wagner) and across the city, designers and fashion aficionados alike will be photographing, discussing and commemorating the contemporary cutting-edge looks of the week.
Unsurprisingly, the majority of fashion shows are not open to the public. In keeping with the exclusive theme of the event, tickets are often gifted amongst the upper echelons of the press and fashion industry rather than made available for public sale. Instead, interested visitors can take advantage of the inclusive events planned for that week. If you’re keen to get a closer look, we recommend checking out one of the following planned events.
Following their successful show and shopping party during last year’s Fashion Week, the Brooklyn-based lifestyle brand will open its doors for their SS19 Fashion show and after party. Guests can shop the looks from their SS19 collection in real-life the day of the event, and, for a small fee, attend the evening show to join in on the celebratory spirit of this fast-growing, sustainable and body-positive brand.
