It’s quite possible that Shopbop Buyer Justin Warner had the best Sunday ever. He dashed from his apartment in Chelsea to some of the day’s top runway shows and back again, and he did it all with time for a cupcake break. Check out his mini journal of the day below, then see more photos in his Facebook album.
It’s Sunday morning of New York Fashion Week, and I’m up early ready to hit the shows. I need some energy, so I grab some green juice from Organic Avenue first, then it’s off to my favorite coffee place, Grumpy Café for a flat white.
First stop of the day is Derek Lam on West Street. The vibe is pumping and I spot my bosses, Darcy and Jeff. We’re ready for a great show!
After Derek Lam, I’m headed back to Chelsea’s Gallery District for the Thakoon show. There’s a very cool, elite fashion crowd in the gallery, and everyone’s anxiously awaiting the show. Thakoon’s collection is inspired by birdcages and hummingbirds! Why not? It’s gorgeous!
It’s time for a sugar break, so I stop at Billy’s for a cupcake. Perfect amount of sugar to keep me going!
Last show of the day is Zac Posen, so I’m headed back uptown to Lincoln Center. The scene: lots of downtown fashion celebs: I spot Leigh Lezark of The Misshapes. The show’s late getting started. Why? Because Naomi opens! WHAT?!?! Coco closes the show in a gorgeous gown.
Such an amazing day! Now it’s back to Chelsea for some much-needed sleep.
