What She Wears: FROW @ NYFW

As the first of the international fashion weeks takes place in New York we take a look at what’s fashion week chic on the front row.

With the fashion paparazzi present to photo your every move, perfect hair, grooming and makeup are obvious considerations (Maybelline are on-hand for touch-ups), but what really stands out are the accessories.

What to look out for:


A double duty clutch that changes from shoulder bag to handheld at the switch of a strap. Choose a detachable strap and unusual detailing to be noticed like this Marc Jacobs studded style on Whitney Port and you’ll be after party ready in no time.


With shoes there are three style camps at Fashion Week:

1. Jeffrey Campbell is the bloggers choice – may increase the chances of being street-style-papped if cool or bonkers enough

2. The fashion forward Frow-ers will go for statement designer shoes – peep toe wedges being the current favourite

3. Brian Atwood peep toes and sky high court shoes are favoured by the sleek and polished who prefer to wear standout to-the-knee dresses instead of attention grabbing outfits a la Anna de la Russo


There’s usually a statement coat or piece of outwear involved. This season it’s the cape which covers you up ‘til you get to the show and leaves your hands free for your iPad or other Tweet-instrument of choice.

Alternatively opt for a menswear inspired blazer, like Rachel Zoe (pictured) who wore a tux blazer with a black maxi the following day.
