No VIP passes to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week? Don’t fret. New Yorkers in the know can still get their fashion fix without the hassle of the velvet rope. The Coterie is the chicest show in New York with a global clientele who understand sophisticated, directional, and timeless clothing. Those that flock to the Coterie represent the cream of the crop in all areas of fashion and style. This show is the center of the contemporary design universe. What could be better than that? Coming on the heels of New York Fashion Week, over 3,000 vendors show at the Coterie . Unlike the fashion shows, at the Coterie buyers and press can take in the lines at a less frenetic pace.

Part 1 Wow what a week! Spring has sprung for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and my days have been jam packed running from Lincoln Center to off-site venues on the High-Line into every nook and cranny of NYC. Its non-stop a go-go.Keeping up with the shows, connecting with old friends, meeting new and interesting people, celeb spotting ( I’m sure you heard about Nicki Minaj at Herarra, Beyonce’s appearance at J.Crew, and Michael Douglas at Kors)! attending launch parties, and tweeting as much as humanly possible are all part of a long days (and nights) work.
IT’S OFFICIAL. I was one the one of the fashion bloggettes at FNO – one of the biggest perks of my current job. I can play dress-up, wear my chicest ensemble, style the fashion mavens that pop into Accessorize, and give a free styling consult. Did I tell you , I love my job!
