Fashionistas on the loose – where to find the fashion girls during NYFW after the shows are over
The fashionable flock to Fashion Week in NYC every season. The shows are packed, the clothes inspiring (both on the runways and in the audiences) and the crowds daunting. (Good luck finding a taxi after a show! I hope your heels are wearable in the subways.)
After “which show did you like the best?” the next question I always seem to get is “where does everyone go when the shows aren’t on?” I’m sure some head to the many renowned museums (the Met has an amazing Costume Institute portion) and some are, no doubt, motivated to shop for more clothes. But those in the know, know that these three places are where you want to see and be seen:
- Balthazar. Yes, a restaurant. Fashion girls actually do eat. It’s exhausting running from show to show, and being able to sit and rest one’s high-heel-clad feet is de rigueur here. Since fashion arguably began in France, it should probably come as no surprise that Balthazar is also a French-inspired import.
