As fall approaches (where has the summer gone?!), we’ll soon find ourselves scrambling to prepare for Fashion Week. In anticipation, we’ve asked the insanely talented Dallas Shaw—fabulous fashion illustrator and style-savvy expert—to share her must-haves for surviving the utterly crazy (and dearly beloved) phenomenon known as NYFW!
What are your Fashion Week must-haves?
Yosi Samra’s flats for between shows, bareMinerals Well-Rested Face & Eye Brightener, visits to Drybar for a quick hair boost, a large bag (I love my new Coach one!) and—of course—Emergen-C (probably pretty self-explanatory!).
What is your secret for surviving Fashion Week?
My current secret to survival is the Empire Hotel. It’s so close that I can actually have a shot at relaxing between shows.
Favorite Fashion Week memory?
That moment at the beginning of each show, when the lights go down and you can feel the music is always amazing—but the first time I experienced that was really a memory I won’t forget.
