Once upon a time, Press Week of New York was consolidated into a cluster of white tents in Bryant Park and branded with the trademark: “7th on Sixth.” Some years later “7th on Sixth” came to be recognized and known as none other than: New York Fashion Week. [September 7th-14th, 2017]
Today, New York Fashion Week is once again a series of citywide events showcasing the fashion world’s elite designers. Equipped with supermodels, clients and fans from all over the globe, it is said to have an economic impact to NYC at an estimated value of $887 million dollars.
#NYFW has become the place for fashion icons, fashionistas and fashion fans to be, be seen and experience what the fashion elite already know about NYC.
We’ve put together a shortlist of MUST DO‘s around the city that fashion fans like YOU should check!
