So day three would have been my busiest day but unfortunately just like last season I ended up being sick. What started out the day before continued to get exacerbated throughout the day. I didn’t feel all that well in the morning but there were two shows early on in my day that I wasn’t going to miss no matter what! Again, like last season Custo Barcelona and Son Jung Wan were the two I couldn’t skip. Custo’s show ended up being my first show of the day which was really nice. I shot my outfit of the day before the show at Pier 59. It was freezing (the coldest day of the week) so I took my photos inside since I couldn’t bare the cold. I didn’t realize when I was getting dressed in the morning that it was going to be so cold, otherwise I would have switched up my outfit order and worn something else that morning.
The show was incredible! I am always obsessed with his collections. The use of colors, prints, textures, and sparkle are eye catching and beautiful. This season he included three young models walking the runway. It was really fun because he showcased some mommy and me looks that made me dream of the day I have a daughter and can match with her.
After the show, I was talking with a few of the PR women who I had actually spoken to before the show as well. They were nice enough to bring me backstage to see the collection up close. I got to snap some detailed shots of some of my favorite pieces. The detailing is exquisite!
After Custo Barcelona, my friend Cathy and I headed down to Spring Studios for Son Jung Wan. I didn’t have the best experience at this show. Not because of the collection, the collection was beautiful (as always), but because of some of the other attendees. I shared before the season started a post about NYFW etiquette. I did this because last season I had witnessed so many people acting poorly during the shows at NYFW. I feel like often times people are so concerned with themselves and getting the best shot to share that they completely lose all manners as well as thought to how their actions might be effecting the way others enjoy the show. I was seated on the end of a row which is great for taking pictures and being able to really see the whole look. Being short, I often don’t get to see the bottom half of the models look as they walk the runway, unless I’m in the front row.
I won’t get too into it, but pretty much people decided to stand in the walkway completely disregarding the fact that they were blocking mine and everyone else seated in the rows entire view. I struggled to see the looks come down the runway and their lack of respect for others really put a damper on my day. Not to mention that I wasn’t feeling 100% myself and after the show I was ready to go back to my hotel to lay down and rest.
I took the opportunity in between my next event and shows to relax for a bit then change because my body could not handle wearing a skirt any longer. I pulled myself together and headed out with my friend Kali to our next event hosted by Elle. The event was a lot of fun, there were four different styling suites to help give you the mid-day pick up you needed. They were doing brow touch ups, hair touch ups, as well as nails. I got my brows touched up by European Wax Center but didn’t have the opportunity to get my nails done. The wait for that was too long and I had to jet off to my next show.
Unfortunately, on my way down the elevator I felt really sick again. I was nauseous, woozy, and light headed. My stomach also felt like it had gone into my throat. I made a last minute decision to head back to my hotel room. I had been battling this feeling of being sick all morning and afternoon and obviously my body was telling me I needed a break. I hate missing shows. It’s why I’m there in the first place but just like last season, the downtime was what I needed to be able to make it through the rest of the week without getting worse. There were a few events going on that evening that I had planned on attending but instead I ordered in room service because I needed a good hearty meal and then called it a night.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog.
