My sketchbook and I will be going to New York City tonight, if the weather allows.  I have a media pass to attend Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and managed to navigate the invitation and RSVP process to go to some shows and parties.

I am also looking forward to checking out the Museum at FIT (maybe even meeting Valerie Steele for a second time), recruiting a few NYC bloggers for a bruncheon of some sort.   Best of all, I will be hanging out with my generous host Joi of Stereoette!  I will be munching on New York bagels and New York cheesecake.  I will be sketching everything I see.  I will be visiting my friends from school who are pursuing their dreams in the city that never sleeps.  I will be sharing the experience at the tents with so many dedicated fashion bloggers, from the crew at Coutorture, to fellow TFBBer Henna from Canadian Beauty.  My favourite thing about fashion week in New York City is being surrounded by so many people who have devoted their lives to this fashion thing.

It is an opportunity I am thankful to have – especially I have to thank Julie, for legitimizing blogger access to fashion week way back in ’05, to my friend Stephanie who is helping me with the logistics of flying, and of course to Joi for welcoming me into her Manhattan apartment.

    4. Have a fucking blast Danielle. I’ll be with you in spirit. I’m really disappointed I won’t get to hang out with the T.O. crew this season in NYC. September was such a blast and it was great to have so many T.O. peeps in town to take in the hotness that is NYC fashion week. It was literally a trip of a lifetime and I encourage anyone in T.O. that can attend to go for it. You need to see a real fashion week in action, it’s amazing, overwhelming and all fucking business.

    6. […] No longer is fashion in new media about fighting for access.Our cause has deepened, our editorial perspective matured, and our desires expanded. Now the nuance, the uncovering of new truths and insights, and the desire to highlight the worthy take precedence over some egalitarian dream of access. As it turns out not everyone has a perspective, not everyone has something to add, and more people want to take than give back. The party is over for Coutorture (though it is just beginning for others as I am sure many a beauty blogger will note) and our work can begin. […]
