Woman Shopping, NYC Event

Put Your Most Fashionable Foot Forward at New York Fashion Week

This NYC Event attracts designers, editors, and lovers of fashion from around the world.

August 18, 2017

The heavy hitters of the fashion world will head to New York City for one of the biggest events in fashion: New York Fashion Week. Designers, fashion editors, supermodels, and those who love to put their most fashionable foot forward will attend the shows to see what styles can be expected to hit retail stores in the coming months.

This NYC Event is one of four that make up the Big 4 of the fashion world. London, Milan, and Paris will hold their own fashion weeks to roll out collections from the world’s top designers. Originally, fashion week was just for the press. The first one took place in 1943 as a way to give editors and reporters a chance to see the new fashions up close.

Today, that remains an important purpose of New York Fashion Week, but audiences have expanded from just the press to those lucky enough to score seats. Yes, luck is involved as many shows are by invitation only. A few designers do offer tickets for sale to the general public.

Even if you can’t attend all the shows, there are other ways to enjoy this NYC Event. Most of the shows will be streamed live, so you can enjoy the action as it happens. If your heart is set on seeing models walk down the runway in person, you can see a list of shows offering tickets to the public on the New York Fashion Week website. Note that many shows will sell out well in advance, so reserve your tickets as soon as possible.

DoubleTree by Hilton Metropolitan is an ideally located NYC Hotel that is near some of the venues for New York Fashion Week events. If you’re considering attending this or other fall NYC Events, reserve a guest room or guest suite at our NY Hotel.
