Spring/Summer 2018 NYFW Recap

After our first fashion week experience in February and learning the do's and dont's we were super ready for the September shows. Invitation requests went out early and we were getting everything together for the trip. But unfortunately, at the last minute, Derria wasn't able to come. So I headed up to New York from DC for the day to attend a few shows on our behalf. I arrived in NY at around 11am, stopped for a quick bite to eat then headed to Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at Pier 86 to pick up my Style Fashion Week media credentials, meet up with Inspiredired by Krys and attend the first show/presentation of the day. 

Style Fashion Week hosted Romeo Hunte's SS 2018 Brooklyn Army presentation. I enjoy presentations because you get a chance to really see the collection and not just for a second down the runway.  The collection included a unique twist to outerwear for both the fall and the spring. Check out a few pieces from the collection.

After Romeo Hunte, I headed to the next show at Skylight Clarkson Square to see the Chromat SS 2018 collection. Chromat is an advocate of inclusion in the fashion industry and their runway show proved just that. The show included people of all orientations, shapes, sizes, and skin tones showcasing cutting edge swim and sportswear. View some photos and video of the show below. 


Post Chromat, I stuck around Skylight for a little bit and checked out the Reebok and Tresseme lounges and then went outside to capture some street style. After running all day, it was time for some food. Krystal and I went to El Gallo De Oro in West Village before heading back to Intrepid to see the final shows of the day. The food was so good and decently priced. I had the burrito bowl and a margarita, which was much needed after a long day.  

Once back at Intrepid, I enjoyed two more shows before heading home, Grace Moon and David Tupaz. They are both are Asian designers that incorporate their culture and See photos and videos from their collections below.

After a full day of shows, it was time to head back home. Even though it was just a day trip, I enjoyed my time. Oh, how could I forget my outfit? I needed something that would be comfortable all day since I was not staying and didn't get a hotel room. Details below!
