It is safe to say that my entire year revolves around one week: F/W NYFW. Spring/summer is always "eh" to me because I really can't be bothered with bright colors (or any color at all, really) and the come-and-go trends it always has to offer. Fall/winter fashion week is like a week-long glimpse of heaven. I kid you not when I say I just pulled an all-nighter to catch up on shows I missed while I was at school (mom, if you're reading this, I swear I was studying and not watching fashion shows all night).
And as much as I have loved the shows I've seen thus far (you go, DKNY, you go)....my absolute favorite part of fashion week, without fail, is the street style images that pop up in every nook and cranny of my social media. I may or may not want to cry when I scroll past 500 photos on instagram of my favorite models walking around my favorite city before walking on a runway for my favorite designers. I also set my homepage to Style.com during NYFW, so there goes a few hundred more tears every time I get on the internet (which is admittedly far too often).
I would almost say that I look forward to the flush of street style images more than the shows. Obviously I'm interested in what Marc Jacobs is trying to get me to wear next fall, but I'm equally as interested as what my favorite models (s/o Sasha Luss) are wearing off-duty. It gives the realm of fashion a bit more realism, I suppose.
Which do you prefer?
