Happy Fashion Week!

Another season, another week of throbbing feet and sleepless nights! This is my sixth season attending Fashion Week, but this time instead of accompanying clients or sponsoring events through work, I’m attending as an “influencer” and guest.

I must say, I didn’t put much effort into making sure I would be attending shows or going to events until about a week before Fashion Week. Since I’ve been in the industry for a few years, I’ve gotten the hang of how these things work. Last minute invites are easy to come by and there’s something going on 24/7 for about two weeks, so you’re sure to weasel your way into something.

That said, I was pleased that some brands reached out directly to invite me to shows/events. For the events that I wanted to go to, but didn’t get an invite to, I simply just reached out and requested attendance. Some I got accepted into, others I didn’t hear back.

I’ve compiled some of my best Fashion Week advice for your enjoyment, below.

  • Network, network, network! I hate to say it, but NYFW is all about who you know. For example, industry friends of mine, as well as bloggers share invites to parties/shows and vice versa. We all tip each other off with RSVP details and info.
  • Don’t try too hard. Say goodbye to your club clothes (bandage skirts, I’m talking to you). The coolest looking people are always that ones that are dressed down. I’m talking sneakers, oversized denim coats, loud patterns and baseball caps.
  • Find free events. Not in the industry? No problem! Look on sites like EventBrite.com to find free happenings during the busy NYFW timeframe. For example, the Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid Fashion Week Carnival happening this weekend.
  • Watch the shows online. Just into the fashion, but not the “scene?” Tune-in the NYFW livestream to watch all of your favorite designers and shows live, as they’re happening.
  • Purchase tickets. Ok, so if none of the above is working for you and you really really want to enjoy the NYFW experience, you can purchase tickets to some shows or select events. This way you’re guaranteed an “in” and don’t need to worry about the door girl not having your name on the list.

    Online Slots Regulation In Alberta

    The responsibility for supervising and regulating gambling businesses in Alberta lies on the local gaming
    and liquor commission (also known as AGLC). In its turn, the organization is comprised
    of two departments: the Corporation and the Board. The Corporation represents
    the functional mechanism of the system, while the Board carries the
    governmental policy into effect through the triggers under its
    control. The organization elaborates the strategic directions and policies as well as delivers the implementation in conjunction with the largest financial institutions of Canada.
    AGLC is empowered to ensure the compliance of local gambling businesses
    with the fundamental principles indicated in Criminal Code as well as the documents adopted by the organization itself.

    In fact, the organization holds the power to license, regulate
    and monitor games of chance activities located in Alberta.

    The province occupies the second position in the list of the
    major Canadian gambling provinces, ceding the leadership
    role to Ontario. The organization is characterized by a
    relatively loyal (by the standards of Canada) attitude towards gambling activities and/or enterprises, looking forward to conduct their business in Alberta.
    Therefore, AGLC adopted a far-famed charitable
    license model that helps dozens of organizations to raise funds for a
    particular project.
