On February 12, 2013, I had my first experience of working at New York Fashion Week. The show that I worked at was Badgley Mischka. The moment I arrived backstage, I was so intrigued by the flood of makeup artists, press, and models. It was like nothing I have ever seen or experienced before. Everyone was there for one purpose and one purpose only. They wanted to put on a fantastic show that the crowd would never forget. Everything had so much detail put into it from the designs all the way to the production of the show. All of this hard work is put into a 10 minute presentation, and then it’s quickly all over. Being there for me wasn’t just a casual “day in the life” like it was for some other people. It was something that I knew that I would always remember. I have worked at NYFW since then, but this one was extra special. I felt like I had so much responsibility and felt so apart of something. I got the opportunity to even meet the designers, Mark and James, and take a photo with them. They are so brilliant and also beyond friendly. I even got the chance to speak with celebrities like Chloe Bridges from The Carrie Diaries, Olympic gymnast, Aly Raisman, and Kelly Bensimon from The Real Housewives of New York City. Watching the actual show itself truly unimaginable. #TBT to my first experience ever at Mercendes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.
