When I landed in New York, I found out Marc had arranged a car service that came and whisked me away to my hotel! It felt like a scene from a movie... I arrived early in the afternoon, so I had plenty of time to shop! I hit up a few of my must-sees in SoHo, like the new Kardashian store, Dash! Amazing! The city was invigorating, but it all felt so right. It was like I was home. I knew right away that I was going to have an amazing trip!
I flew in on a Sunday and the show was Monday, so for dinner that first night a couple of the Marc reps took me to the cutest little Italian restaurant (I forget the name). We had a delicious meal and I picked their brain about the show. This was only their second time going and they were just as nervous as I was.
The show started with the thump thump of Marlyn Manson's "Beautiful People" and the first model came strutting out. At that moment it hit me. I was at the Marc Jacobs runway show! OhMyGod! It was really happening! As each look walked past, I got more and more excited. The latex. The polka-dots. The shoes! It was an incredible collection that was such a departure from his spring collection... This is what we'll see next year for fall on every other designer's runway.
After the show I lingered around a bit to see if I could meet any of the celebs that were at the show. While I was sad to hear that Fergie and Josh had cut out a bit early, I did get to meet a few goodies--Leighton Meester, Vanessa Hudgens, and Bryan Boy to name a few. While Leighton was a bit grouchy, Vanessa was the sweetest, most beautiful woman there!
Hope you enjoyed my trip to New York Fashion Week half as much as I did! -Ryan-
