Black & Blanco

New York Fashion Week, Day 3: 9/6/14

The Saturday of NYFW was pretty spectacular! Hallie had an extra ticket to Prabal Gurung and it was SUCH an amazing show. By far the most high-caliber show I’ve gotten the chance to attend during NYFW over the years!

The show was set in the back of the US Post Office on 8th Avenue, across from Madison Square Garden. The post office was open for business as usual, which was kind of crazy. All sorts of editors and celebrities parading through the lobby, past the regular patrons. (This picture shows the juxtaposition pretty well!)

We were seated second row and had the most amazing view of one of the walkways. The whole experience was so surreal! Fun fact: All of the models were wearing Foot Petals during the show! Models, they’re just like us. 😉

Since the post office has a revolving door, there was a pretty long line to get out after the show. But I so didn’t mind waiting in line because RACHEL FREAKING ZOE was behind me. I was literally within 5 feet of her for a good 5 minutes. And then Hallie & I were basically walking along side her on 31st street while she was trying to get a cab! (Accidentally, I swear.) Too bad I was too shy to say anything to her… Definitely missed my moment with that one.

    I loved seeing the pics from that show- the location was too cool! Also…. RACHEL ZOE. I would have died and either a) looked like a total fan girl and said something (that probably made no sense) to her b) be so mad at myself for not saying a word!
