I’ve been blogging since 2007 and have yet to attend one of the Fashion Week shows in New York. Why? Well, I’ve been busy blogging about Denver Fashion, my local fashion community. I like to say fashion for a good cause is my real passion and supporting local Denver designers is my love affair. However, after seven years of attending and covering a good number of runway shows in town, I’m currently on break (since 2014). I’m letting the new bloggers and other media have at it for now. I like supporting local but it’s really a lot of work, mostly unpaid too. I blogged, managed writers, did photography—To our credit, First Class Fashionista is known for producing quality work and nothing less. We even produced a charity fashion show called Denver Paint the Runway. Read our glowing reviews on Facebook here. Toot, toot goes the horn, lol. I hope you don’t mind. I really enjoy my own sense of humor. Blogging should be fun, right? I’m getting back to the basics.
So I am on hiatus from attending Denver fashion shows and thinking about how to get into the best shows at NYFW. You know, the shows we’ve been writing about all these years here! If you are a designer, publication or Fashion Week PR contact, feel free to shoot me an invite. I already have a place to stay because my daughter goes to school and works in the city and I can book a flight easy. I just need to get invited.
Now, fashionista, you and I both know we can’t wait around to get invited to shows, so I’ve rounded up some of the best advice on how to get into the best ones. Remember timeliness is uber important. Start reaching out six to eight weeks in advance. Click the viewer below for tips on how to write a letter to request an invite, what to title your email’s subject line and much, much more.
