(These really quick typing girls scarfed up all the prizes. Winners will be announced March 1st, which is my fault because I thought it would take longer for people to answer.)
So I was lucky enough to get some Fashion Week invitations. It was amazing, and I’m super grateful that I got a chance to experience the tents at Lincoln Center, the spacious studios at Pier 59, and the new retail/show space on 17th Street for LAUNCH NYC. I even went to a show in a church! The shows are complete spectacle, with music and beautiful models, and you can see the care that goes into the hair, the makeup, the accessories..it’s a real work of art.
One of the perks of doing this is that you sometimes get goody bags. It could be a tote with liner notes, or it could be a few presents left on the seat( Desigual did laptop covers and phone cases). Either way, a lot of times you get thanked for showing up this way.
Because I am the sassy Ethnic Bohemian and have known good times and bad, I remembered to snag extra for you. Don’t worry- people will often leave (yes…LEAVE) their goody bags behind if they’ve been at multiple shows from one collective, or if they think what they got just wasn’t them. So people, I looked out for you, and here is the result:
