How to Survive New York Fashion Week

This weekend was a whirlwind. We’re nearly halfway through New York Fashion Week and both M and I worked at events over the weekend.  Here are a few tips on how to survive Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week without drowning after the week comes to an end.

Surviving NYFW

  • Pay attention to every work email. Not just those pertaining to fashion week.
  • Expect to put in extra hours at the office. It’s the only way you’ll get everything done on time.
  • Make sure you’re communicating with teammates. So they know where you are/what you’re doing. Send recap emails following every event, show, etc.
  • Stand your ground. Don’t be a pushover if you’re working a door or line. Otherwise you’ll be taken advantage of.
  • Dress your best. Given, but also so you feel confident.
  • Bring a charger with you everywhere. Just in case your phone dies.
  • Use Uber. Instead of waiting outside of Lincoln Center for a cab for 30 minutes.
  • Get a good amount of sleep. As much as you can. So many girls become way too exhausted.
  • Take in the moments. Don’t forget that you’re working your dream job. 
  • Make sure the client’s happy. After all, it’s why you’re there.
