We’re approaching the home stretch of New York Fashion Week, which means many of our attitudes have shifted from excited and energetic to when-will-this-be-over?
Fashion week can be stressful, especially if you’re someone who’s actually there to work, or have a job to do on top of going to all the shows.
For designers, it’s pressure to present a hit collection on top of working down to the wire to get those collections finished. For bloggers and journalists, it’s attending 29783292 events per day and then writing about them in a timely manner. And for editors, buyers and other industry figures, it’s attending all those events while also keeping up with day to day job responsibilities. For PRs, it’s basically making everything come together and putting out fires left and right.
It’s a lot. And even though it’s really just clothes, the whole week can take a toll both physically and mentally. So, we asked some of fashion’s busiest bees to tell us what they do to stay sane (and no we don’t mean pharmaceuticals–though those certainly aren’t off-limits). From Jenna Lyons’ many coats, to BryanBoy’s cathartic Instagramming, click through for their (and our) tips and tricks!
And, yeah, #firstworldproblems, #iknow.
