Well, yesterday marked the end of New York Fashion Week for me. It was an exhilarating, exhasuting and superbly gratifying and inspiring season. I want to give a quick shout out to Stylecaster for allowing me to write for them this season and to my amazing team who helped me pull it all off, but first I will give a quick re-cap of the day in Instagram photos!
First up I met up with Sophie Elgort again to shoot backstage beauty and fashion at the J.Mendel show. Like with the Oscar de la Renta show I won’t share too much cause I don’t want to ruin all the amazing footage we captured, but here’s Revlon’s Gucci Westman applying make-up to model Joan Smalls and one of J.Mendel’s gorgeous dresses.

Afterwards I headed to the GANT by Michael Bastian presentation for Stylecaster, and then the J.Lindberg presentation for them as well at night. In between it all I ran into Aimee Song of Song of Style and my mom and I gave her a drop in a cab to her hotel near Canal Street.
