On the scene at New York Fashion Week

September 17, 2013 in New York City,Places,United States

While I might be beach-hopping in New York on the weekends or sailing to the Statue of Liberty at sunset, I’m usually in front of a computer from 9 to 5, Monday through Friday as the social media and marketing manager for ONA. One of the perks of working for such a cool company in the photography and fashion space (beyond owning the most stylish camera bag(s) around) is the chance to attend awesome events in New York City–like New York Fashion Week.

Christine Amorose & Jill Wishart at New York Fashion Week

My coworker Jillian and I went to the American Express Unstaged event for the Rebecca Minkoff show: we were able to sip cocktails while watching the Spring/Summer 2014 collection on the models, listen to Janelle Monae perform and have a quick Q&A with Rebecca Minkoff herself. I spent the rest of my time outside shows connecting with photographers and trying to appear like I belonged among so many beautiful people. We also put together this video for ONA of the street style scene outside the shows: no surprise that my job often requires acting as a bag model!

Christine Amorose & Humans of New York

I was swooning over all the fashion world celebrities I spotted–like Bill Cunningham and Grace Coddington (IN THE SAME FRAME), Nina Garcia, the Man Repeller, Liv Tyler. But my biggest fan-girl moment totally came when I saw Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York. It’s one of my absolute favorite blogs, and while I am incredibly sad that I was not deemed interesting enough to “be a story”–it was still so much fun to meet the man behind the camera of some of my favorite photos.

    Lucky you! I’d love to attend a Fashion Week – New York, London, Paris… anywhere, really! The closest I got anywhere fashion-related was appearing in a japanese magazine for Street Style in Milan.
    By the way, I love the ONA bags, they look so stylish! Are they also sold in Europe?
