My last day at NYFW was a Monday and it was another full day before flying home that night. The weather was finally cooler, which made it much nicer for traveling around the city to the shows, showrooms, and other appointments.
Shoot with Megan Weaver
I started my day down in Greenwich Village/the West Village with coffee at Joe Coffee before an outfit shoot with Megan Weaver, a Dallas-based blog photographer. Here’s a sneak peek and I look forward to sharing the whole shoot with you next week.
Lunch at the Butcher’s Daughter
After my shoot, I had a little bit of time before I had to be anywhere, so I walked through the West Village to the Butcher’s Daughter for lunch.
Showroom Appointment at Hache
After lunch, I went to check out the Hache showroom. A showroom is a place where brands display their latest collections for the next season for buyers and the press (and bloggers!). After seeing so many brands on the runway, it was fun to see clothing closeup and to see how a collection fits together. Hache is an Italian brand designed by Manuela Arcari. I loved how Hache took basics and added a twist – like the red & blue striped shirt with ruffles or some of the chambray pieces. In addition to Hache, the showroom also had pieces from AVN (designed by Manuela Arcari’s son, Gianfilippo Gerard) and socks from Benedict. After the Hache showroom, it would transition into Ter et Bantine (also designed by Manuela Arcari).
Louis Verdad Showroom
Next, I went to the Louis Verdad presentation to see his pieces for Spring 2017. Like the presentation I went to on my first day, I was able to walk around and take in the pieces at my own pace. I loved the details.
Leanne Marshall show
My final show was the Leanne Marshall show. Leanne Marshall was the winner of season 5 of Project Runway and makes ready-to-wear as well as bridal pieces. I love how her pieces are feminine and flowy. I always love soft pastels for spring.
