7 Things I Learned While Working Fashion Week

I did it.  I worked fashion week.  What a dream come true!

I purchased a ticket, hopped on a bus labeled NYC as its destination, caught the train to 55 West 17th Street, walked right into heaven at Manufacture New York building and introduced myself as Candace Woods.  I did, however, manage to get lost while traveling a few blocks.

Now that I have finally come down from my high, I can write about the seven things I learned during this unforgettable experience.

  • Comfort is cool but you must be stylish while on the clock
  • You must network and know how to properly introduce yourself
  • Have business cards ready and actually hand them out
  • Bring a cute change of clothes in case you go to a party later
  • Always be prepared for a turn of events
  • Learn as much as you can from the designers and fashion veterans.  Follow them around without being weird
  • Bring snacks! You will work up an appetite

It was just an amazing experience that I hope I can re-live in September.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed. :)


Fashionably yours,
