How does one survive the parties, presentations and back-to-back fashion shows of New York Fashion Week, you ask? It is after all a marathon, not a sprint.
Yesterday, we gave you a peek at beauty guru François Nars’ survival kit. Today, we turn to one of our own—vice president of women’s CO-OP RTW Molly Nutter. Take a page from her book and you’ll be ready for anything, whether you’re in the front row or backstage.
A quick run early in the morning to wake up and clear my head.
An Americano or iced coffee, depending on the weather. (I have a three-a-day caffeinated beverage limit). And lots of water.
I feel sane if I have somewhat of a uniform. I stick to sharp and tailored, whether it be a shirt, jacket or trouser, but never all at once. If I’m wearing at least one of these elements, I feel put together. For trousers, A.L.C. or 3.1 Phillip Lim.
My iPad—obviously great for my emails and schedule, but I couldn’t survive without a link to the outside world, specifically the Times and HuffPo apps.
Nude lip gloss during the day and a nearly-obnoxious hot pink lipstick for any event at night. Chanel lip gloss in glossamer and By Terry lipstick in pink party.
A huge bag for my tickets, paperwork, shoes and water. The aptly named 31 hour bag by Phillip Lim has been getting a lot of mileage this time around.
