Five Great Articles About New York Fashion Week 2015
With New York Fashion Week beginning on February 12th at Lincoln Center (and beyond!), there’s no better time than now to find out what’s in store. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (because nothing’s more stylish than a corporate sponsor), which runs for nine days, promises to be even bigger and more lavish than last year’s event. So big, in fact, that it can be overwhelming. Kanye West, straight from a free concert for NBA All-Star Weekend in the Flatiron District, will even make an appearance to promote Adidas ‘Yeezy Boost’ shoes. Browsing can be helpful when it comes to putting together an outfit, so it only follows that it’s equally helpful in deciding just how to enjoy a massive fashion event.
