The great Streetstyle-Photographer Scott Schuman (Sartorialist) knows his Fashion Weeks. Since years he is an inherent part of every important Fashion Week. Which is why it’s no wonder, he also was at the New York Fashion Week as well as at the one in London the past weeks.
Scotty recently gave two important Fashion-Week Tips on his Blog Fashionology, which we won’t keep from you, since they are completely right:
(1) If you are interested in Fashion, sneak into fashion shows.
In Schuman’s words: “I like the youngness of it (London) — people really seem to like fashion here; they’re excited about it. I’m a little disappointed that in New York the FIT kids and the Parsons kids don’t bring the same enthusiasm. They don’t try to sneak into shows. I don’t know why the kids aren’t trying to sneak into shows?”
(2) Don’t pack a thing in your suitcase, you’ll lose it anyhow.
Schuman says: “You know, when you travel as much I do, you really learn how not to need anything. Because things are going to break. You’re going to forget your cashmere sweater — you’re going to lose this thing. I used to want to go to Starbucks in the cities, and even that, it’s just better if you don’t need anything. The more you need something, the more difficult it is when it doesn’t work out and the more upset it makes it you. I used to have essentials. Now I can live without my cashmere sweater, I can without my . . . It’s not like we’re going to Ethiopia. I can get whatever I need right here.”
Scott Schuman, the wise fashion-nomad, is completely right.
We recommend: go to fashion weeks, leave your suitcase at home and try to sneak in to the Front Row naked. If any doubt, refer to Scotty (or try our Tricks).
