This week Cailin and I were able to go to New York Fashion Week to see Anna Sui’s Fall/Winter 2014 Collection. I interned there over a summer and it’s one of the perks of the internship to be invited to the shows each season. It’s always fun to reunite with my intern girls, prance around Lincoln Center and experience the catwalk the way industry insiders do. Our first stop was the Anna Sui showroom to pick up our tickets. The office was bustling with last minute preparations for the show, so we quickly picked up our tickets, got a quick soup at the Pret a Manager nearby and then headed to Lincoln Center.
It was pretty cold in the city, so we both opted for leather jackets in order to stay kind of warm! We didn’t want to haul around big jackets when we were inside, so we just decided to bear the elements as best we could. I finished my look with a pair of printed pants and wedge booties. Cailin completed her look with leather lined leggings and colorful stilettos.
This season the inside of Lincoln Center had a dark, luxurious feeling. They had their typical seating and food areas, along with their high tech screens of the various fashion shows going on in every corner. Before the show we had fun stopping by the Samsung Galaxy booth and getting our portraits drawn on their tablets, and getting cute tote bags.
Then it was showtime! I really liked the collection for the coming up Fall season. It was a throwback to many different decades in fashion. It had a 20’s, hippie vibe that also tied in some modern trends like sporty bomber jackets. Overall, I though it was a pretty cool look.

After the show we were invited to the E! Glamcam hangout on the second floor of the venue. The Glamcam is the same one they use on celebrities at big events that give a 360 degree view of what they are wearing. It was fun to have the same experience as the celebs!

Sadly, we had to leave the city to catch a train back home before the huge snow storm hit, but we had a great time at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!
