NYC for Fashion Week
Last month I went to NYC for Fashion Week. I know, I know, I am waaay too late with all my content. Catching up on some articles while I am traveling in Australia right now.
I just want to line up all the outfits here for you and a few shows that I attended. It was amazing to do New York Fashion Week again. I can’t wait for next season already :)
Flying in this sharp purple pink WOW Air plane to NYC. You have a transfer stop in Iceland (Reykjavik). It’s a budget airline. No entertainment system and no included food and drinks, but it looks flashy brand new inside. It’s definitely worth it if you’re are looking for cheap tickets to NYC from €350!
On my first day in New York, I chose a little different office location than usual. Work needs to be done after all, and sitting in the streets of New York City was quite an experience, I tell you.

Times Square, the heart of New York City
Everybody should have been at least one at Times Square. It’s a mesmerizing experience to be right there, in the heart of New York, the center of the world.
Gucci is a girl’s best friend, or was it diamonds?
In any case, stopping by at Gucci in New York was one of the top bullet points on my bucket list. I love the brand and its individuality and as you can see, they do not only create pretty clothes and accessories, but also the most extravagant store.
Motel Morris is a bar and restaurant located on the southwest corner of seventh avenue and eighteenth street in the Chelsea, New York City. The menu is season American with global influences and “fun nods” to classic American dishes. Chef Bill McDaniel wanted to create something different and I can just approve, it was delicious.
address: 132 Seventh Avenue, New York NY 10011
As every other girl on the planet, I’m a big fan of the beautiful couture by Victoria’s Secret. I share their love for lace and details that seem to appear everywhere, I mean, this is a golden rest room!
The NYFW event at Victoria’s Secret was special indeed.
address: 640 5th Ave, New York, NY 10019
Room for Tea
Room for Tea is the first tea-themed immersive art pop-up in NYC and it was quite a bubbly experience. Inspired by the diversity of (tea) cultures around the world, they wanted to celebrate the individual adaptions in New York City by creating a journey of 40 minutes with 5 scenes and 18 visual highlights.
Because of my Chinese background I know about the importance of tea. The concept of the Chinese tea culture is reffered to in Chinese as “chayi” what means “the art of drinking tea”. Offering a cup of tea in China can have several meanings, for example a sign of respect, to show gratitude (on Chinese weddings the bride and grrom serve tea to their parents to thank them for raising them) or to apologize. I grew up with the importance of tea and its metaphers, so the Room of Tea was a really fascinating experiences for me.

Maybelline New York
As you might have noticed, I am really into Beauty products, make up and perfume. So the Maybelline event at the New York Fashion Week was a must-do for me. Checking out the new collections and chatting with stylist, I also got introduced to the beautiful model Adriana Lima.
first line of Gemy Maalouf was launched with a purpose to make high-end designs
available to all women. The deluxe collections consist of evening gowns with materials and cuts
that richly reflect the refined beauty of the designer’s work. Stopping by at fashion week, meeting the designer for a bit and admiring the dresses from up close. I couldn’t hold myself and had to try on one of the beautiful gowns, but it was a little bit too long for me, don’t you think? ;)
Strolling through the city
Next stop: Nana Judy Fashion Show. The new collection was absolutely stunning. Bomber jackets and cute shorties with chunky boots. The high light was seeing Winnie Harlow in action during the show!
Nana Judy is different and unique which is what we stand for and transcends into each piece of our clothing, continuously pushing the boundaries of premium streetwear. NANA stands for loyalty and legacy, JUDY stands for unique and rare like the that of a Dalmatian’s spots.
Omelya T-dress pulls off funky, original and provocative styles. As the name already introduces, their signal couture is an oversized T-dress.
A variant form of this style was my beautiful white dress with glitter and a feather-like bottom part. I combined my oversized look with a cute belt, golden Nikes and a leopard bag.
Sally LaPointe is a Women’s Designer Ready-to-wear collection based in NYC. Their signature style are oversized knits. The Fashion week looks had a lot of pink and beige colours and it was really original and different. I wish I could every look I saw on this runway!
Art from the street of NYC
During Fashion Week, we met Artist Dig Ferreira who worked on the streets illustrating people. His drawing was absolutely stunning and the craziest thing about it? He used his mouth as a tool!
In NYC you have to make time for shoppings and Soho is one of my favorite places to go.
One of my favorite looks in NYC. This kick ass look matches so well with the orange construction sight that you see everywhere on the streets of New York.
