For those of you who don’t know, Aruba Fashion Week is a real thing. It happens once a year in November, lasts for four days–and a week ago I was offered the chance to attend. Um, I said yes.
Funnily enough, there are lots of parallels between any major fashion week and Aruba fashion week, known as Aruba In Style. There’s a Karl Lagerfeld-type who runs the show and a vibrant street style scene–it just happens on yachts and beaches instead of Lincoln Center. Oh and runways are in the middle of swimming pools. If you ask us, New York, London, Milan and Paris could learn a thing or two from Aruba.
