Well I am officially in New York for Fashion Week and am exhausted! I took a red eye, left around 12:30am and arrived almost at 9am. I quickly put on my winter clothes and took a taxi to my hotel to where I wasn’t allowed to check in until 4pm. I rested, ate and recharged to head out to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and attend the Angel Sanchez show. Let me tell you, it was incredible! The designs were majestic, beautiful, mind blowing and it was amazing to get to see them in real life walking right by you and catch a glimpse of the detailing. I’m impressed by all the people who dress up super fabulous and chic because this winter chill is out of control! It’s freezing and I mean freezing! For a Cali girl like me who hasn’t spent much time in the snow it has been a world wind of emotions in this blistering cold but thank goodness for taxis. I will say that I am a little bummed that it is below freezing and that I won’t be able to fully enjoy and see the city, since it is my first time coming here and all. But I will make the most of it as I go along.
Aside from the Angel Sanchez show I also visited Jordan Alexandra’s showroom with her debut collection. It was impeccable! I got a chance to interview her and find out a bit more of the young Mexican-American designer and how Tilda Swinton is one of her inspirations and would love to see her in her designs. She was a great woman who made you feel like you were talking to a friend and made you realized how hard someone must work to get to where they want to be. She was truly inspiring.
After her show I returned back to Times Square and my hotel room where I relaxed, finished an article for work and now am laying in bed because I am literally dying of exhaustion…slight exaggerating but still, it was hard to sleep on an airplane. Day Two consists of two more shows and work!
