Emily Weiss began her career in fashion while studying art at NYU, and after honing her skills at W magazine, she settled into a coveted position assisting American Vogue stylist Elissa Santisi. Fully immersed in the industry, Emily launched Into the Gloss in 2010, profiling the insiders and influencers shaping current beauty trends. We asked Emily to share a few tips about surviving the marathon that is New York Fashion Week.
Shopbop: What are your beauty and health rituals in the weeks leading up to NYFW?
Emily Weiss: Manicure and pedicure, of course. Hair cut and color. But the number one most important thing is SLEEP! I have to get as much as I can because as soon as fashion week starts, it goes out the window.
SB: What are your favorite NYFW oases?
EW: I refuel at neighborhood restaurants like Osteria Morini and Café Select, and pop into YogaWorks for a BarWorks class when I can, to keep my strength up.
SB: What is your favorite fashion week memory to date?
EW: Working with designer Derek Lam and stylist Elissa Santisi to put looks together for his runway shows. They are a dream team, always laughing and having fun.
