Designer @RuthieDavis breaks down her #FashionWeekEssentials for the front row at #NYFW. Fashion + Gadgets!
What are 3 things you consider most essential for fashion week?
- My Fall 2012 “Linden” Ankle Strap Platform Pumps in Tan. They’re sky-high and super chic. And, in a room full of runway models, a little extra height doesn’t hurt!
- My new iPhone 4S. I’ve been a Blackberry devotee for years and recently made the switch. Instagram was made for sitting front row! I’m obsessed!
- Any and all variations on the Tom Ford Aviator in gold. With shows, meetings, and parties stretching into the wee hours, sunglasses are a MUST.
Do you have any fashion week preparations rituals?
Fashion Week is always roller coaster, so I always do my best take a run in the mornings to clear my head and get a jump on the day. I also like to drink the green juices from Whole Foods throughout the day to keep me hydrated. I try not to stress about having to look glam, so long as I have a good a blowout, I’m ready to go.
What are you anticipating to be the top trend for Fall 2012?
A return to “lady-dressing” but with a modern and sexy twist. It’s all about feminine soft neutrals but edged up with touches of hardware or unexpected pops of color. Think ‘Stepford Wives’ with a downtown edge.
