Surviving NYFW in 3 Days
How To Attend NYFW



Hi Readers,

                Welcome back to another post! Today we are talking about how to survive NYFW and how you can attend shows. This was my first year attending NYFW and I can’t believe I waited this long to attend.  This year I was determined to go and I made it my mission to attend as many shows as I could. Now before I get into how to attend the shows I want to be honest and say I did wait until the last minute to do my research. So I highly recommend if you do decide to attend NYFW to start at least 3 months before. If I had started a lot earlier I would have probably been invited to a lot more shows.
             
   Pitching yourself to designers and brands

                If you aren’t a celebrity or someone famous your chances of getting front row seats to a big fashion is very low. The truth of the matter is that a lot of the big name events are invite only. However there is a way around this if you have the right pitch! If you are a fashion blogger or just all around fashion lover you want to create an email pitching yourself to shows you would like to attend. You want to make sure you talk about who you are, what you do in the fashion world, and why you feel you should attend. If you’re a blogger like me you should have a media kit already showcasing you social media platforms and stats, so you want to make sure you’re including that in your email. Remember to make it short, sweet, and to the point.
                
How to get in contact with designers and brands

                So before you send your emails out you have to know who you are sending it to right. You have to do your research now. So let’s say you want to attend the Kate Spade showcase, the first thing you need to do is find there media or pr email address. I simply type into Google just that and it pops up. Once I pull all the designers and brands I would like to attend shows for I send out an email to each one. Don’t be discouraged if you get No’s or no response. A lot of people are sending them emails so sometimes it’s not about you they just don’t have any more slots open.
                
Stay At Hotels For Free

                The same way you pitch to designers and brands is the same way you pitch to hotels. If you’re a blogger like me you will most likely be blogging your entire stay which includes the hotel you will be in. Hotels love when you tag them and post during your stay because it brings them business. So when I pitch to them I highlight that during my stay I would be blogging and posting while I am in your hotel. So be sure to include what you can do for the hotel while you are visiting.
           
     Sign Up for NYFW

                Signing up on the official website will help keep you update to date on all the fashion shows and where they will be hosted. It’s a great way to get an idea of where to start.

              
  Pop Up Shops

                A lot of stores and big brands come to New York during fashiobn week to showcase there new collections in local stores and they always invite people to come and shop for discounted prices or for free if you post the event on social media. Simply type in stores or brands you know or search pop up shops to see who previously did one the year before so you know who to contact to attend the next year,
