Focusing in one of the most important fashion events in NYC, will tell you details about the New York Fashion Week and the great things and places you can visit in the city that never sleeps.
New York Fashion Week, sponsored by Mercedes Benz, opens the calendar of the gateways that are organized by the major fashion cities of the world leaders in Paris, London or Milan, among others.
Held twice a year (February and September), is an event organized by the fashion industry to present what will be the new trends for next season spring-summer and autumn-winter, respectively, through the presentation of the collections of different designers.
Currently, this event has become a must not only for designers and retailers, but for celebrities and personalities from the worlds of fashion, film, music, etc that occupy the front rows of the main gateways to take note of the trends of the season. This year, the event was held from 5 to 12 September with a large group of designers from all over gathered in the Big Apple. When you’re in New York during this particular span of time, the entire city is captivated: newspapers, TV stations, even cabbies know what’s going on at Lincoln Center.
The fashion week is a great excuse to visit the city of skyscrapers, famous for its Central Park, important avenues like Broadway or Fifth Avenue.
Apart from the fashion runways, New York offers a wide range of options to visit, such as Empire State Building, which has been the world’s tallest building from 1931-1972.
Today, after the fall of the Twin Towers, is the tallest building in New York.
With its lights and billboards, Times Square has become the most popular of New York. It is the liveliest area of the city.
The iconic Statue of Liberty is arguably the most famous symbol of New York. Their motto is: Liberty enlightens the world. Did you know?
But if we want to treat ourselves sleeping in one of the best and most luxurious hotels, a good idea is to choose the Four Seasons Hotel, with a privileged location a few steps from Central Park, sumptuous surroundings, wonderful decorations and simple. Undoubtedly, the Four Seasons New York is faithful to the tradition of refinement and requirement that characterizes the hotel chain worldwide. Exclusive to the Four Seasons, the bathroom has bath products brand Bulgari.
The Mandarin Oriental is the undisputed queen of New York Fashion Week hotels. With the tents at Lincoln Center a heel-friendly two blocks away, and services and facilities catering to the hordes of fashionable guests, you’ll feel as if you’ve checked in to some kind of exclusive fashion camp. After a long day at the shows, rejuvenate yourself in the oxygenated vitality pool or the amethyst crystal steam room, or just relax and take in the breathtaking views of the city from your lavish room, which boasts views of Central Park and the Hudson River.
Since opening its doors in 2002, avant-garde boutique Opening Ceremony has become synonymous with uber-cool New York street-style fashion. Taking from the store’s name, owners Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have created a kind of fashion Olympics, traveling the world to showcase the best up-and-coming-international designers as well as established brands to offer customers a truly unique shopping experience. Frequent collaborations include an in-house line with New York It Girl and actress, Chloe Sevigny and Chinese-American designer, Phillip Lim. There’s no shortage of fun and eye-catching labels available here to rock at NYFW, but if you’re looking for a particularly envy-inducing piece, the owner’s coveted Kenzo line is a great start.
And to go out and have a drink or dinner, we suggest A60, the exclusive bar on the roof of the Sixty Thompson Hotel. The views and romantic candle-lit ambience here is reserved for hotel guests and members, giving this small crowd gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline. Small food plates can be ordered, and the cocktails here are always strong and fancy, much like the famous clientele that can often be spotted relaxing around the roof.
New York is synonymous with fashion, is one of the few cities able to make us feel whole celebrity when we step on the streets, parks, avenues, hotels, museums, and restaurants … just enjoy!
