For the first time in all of the fashion weeks that I've attended since sophomore year of college, I avoided the subway as much as possible. Winter is getting to me.
Aside from what I thought were powerful and empowering collections from the likes of Calvin Klein, Prabal Gurung, Lacoste, Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Mr. Self Portrait, WhoWhatWear, Coach, Anna Sui, Ralph Lauren and many others, this season's New York Fashion Week not only took my breath away but it also swept me off of my feet. Of course I'm speaking in a more literal sense that I am figuratively. From sweater/ leather weather to two heat-techs and a heavy parka to raincoats and umbrellas in a matter of days, Mother Nature sure knew how to provide the best weather conditions to challenge all fashionistas who dared brave her wrath this season.
I, for one, thoroughly enjoyed the wind tunnel she created outside of the Artbeam on Monday (aka Day 5 of NYFW.) It's like she knew how much I liked candid hair action in my photos. Or being swept off of my feet even when it's not Valentine's Day.
Crazy wind chills and literally zero cabs in sight and my Lyft being ten minutes away, I opted for a photoshoot. And after my hands and face turned completely numb, I quickly wanted to forgo the idea and seek refuge in a much warmer place preferably with a burger and fries and a shake.
After Jason's fingers have fallen off from clicking the shutter too many times, our Lyft finally arrived. We made a wise decision of heading straight to Black Tap
Craft Burgers and Beer.
If you've never been, you've got to!
