With every Fashion Week, I get a slew of e-mails from readers who are wondering how it all goes down. I’ve answered these questions before, but today I’m going to give you a Definitive Guide to New York Fashion Week, based on your questions.
The First Question I always get:
Cynthia says, “I’m a young NYC public school teacher. Since I work full time, I can’t really go into the fashion industry, but I’m always looking for Fashion Week gigs. Do you by any chance know of any usher or assistant positions currently available?”
If you want to get the feeling of Fashion Week, but don’t have an ‘in’, I suggest you check out the Ground Crew. Started by Audrey Smaltz…
…the Ground Crew has provided backstage dressers, tailors, stylists, and pressers for Fashion Week for the past thirty years to names like Gucci, Prada, Michael Kors, Donna Karen and Diesel. Fierce! From laying out outfits, to working directly with the models, the Ground Crew is the definitive go-to if you want to get a ‘behind the scenes’ look. Find out more and apply for next season here.
I hope I answered all your questions!
I’m off to prepare for Fashion Week…and my 2nd Anniversary Party tomorrow!
Remember to RSVP.
