New York Fashion Week Day 1

Wow! What a day it has been! Since early morning till late evening I was running around town attending shows and parties! And all of that on 7 hours of sleep in 2 days - pretty brutal! I'd like to  believe that the first day is always the busiest (based on my last year's experience), but I feel like they might all be busy this time around... So I won't sleep more than 5 hours any time soon. I guess that's part of the job, so I'll still take it =) I am trying to keep you updated on everything I do in this fashion week on my Twitter and Instagram. TWITTER is definitely more detailed though, because I don't want to overload my Insta with 20 photos a day. Thank you for being so engaging there! Love to interact with you guys!
Now, let's talk about my look before I tell you all about the shows I attended. Started fashion week with a chic and glam look with classy sweat pants from Sandro and a ruffle crop top from ASOS. Accessorized with a body chain from ASOS, awesome sunnies from Versace and my new booties from Dolce Gabbana! I already know that it's probably my favorite look of the whole upcoming week. I loved every single detail and apparently street style photographers did too =)

Sunglasses: Versace. Top: ASOS. Pants: Sandro. Body chain: ASOS. Clutch: Givenchy. Booties: Dolce & Gabbana.
Now, to the shows!!! First one was Nicholas K - loved loved LOVED layered draping fabrics and the whole safari theme! Very very cool, I can totally see the "new me" wearing it!
The second show was BCBGMAXAZRIA - soft palette and simplicity still made it chic and classy. Don't know how they do it.
Supima Design Competetion was a tough run as usual. Below are my three favorite looks.
Desigual was the highlight of my day! This Spanish label patriotically portrayed everything we think about Spain - parties, flowers, amazing music and beautiful playful ladies ;) Adriana Lima being part of the show was a very pleasant surprise for me - she is just so gorgeous, energetic and sexy! I loved how refreshing the show was with smiley models (can you imagine they CAN smile!?) who were interacting with the audience, blowing kisses and carrying fun signs like the one below. Definitely my favorite show of the day!
Next one was a male show of Perry Ellis where I bumped into Nick Wooster! How cool is that!? :)
Next stop was the Old Navy Party in a cool space with modern light and spacious environment - love parties when there is a lot of light ;)
And the last show of my day was Meskita - a collection inspired by Egypt, featured golden and silky materials. The finale was very original - I featured a short video on my Twitter, so be sure to check it out!
I really hope you enjoyed my recap and thanks for being so incredibly amazing and supportive on my social networks and here! I can't express how grateful I am! Stay tuned for more NYC adventures and follow along on Twitter and Instagram. I am off to get my 5 hours of sleep :)
