Tip: Create a Spreadsheet

“It may sound crazy, but I create a Google spreadsheet of my days away. I pick a different dress to wear each day and bring shoe-bag combos to change up every two to three days. This technique keeps my looks fresh, my packing edit tight, and allows me to carry on most of the time.”

Tip: Mix-and-Match Ease

AKIRA NAKA Checked Wool-Blend Double-Breasted Blazer / R13 Kick Fit Crop Jeans / THE ROW Bourgeoise Leather Slingback Pumps / WANDLER Hortensia Mini Leather Shoulder Bag

“I plan my outfits around staple pieces that mix and match easily and can be worn a few times throughout the trip without ever repeating a look twice. I do this by sticking with classic pieces like moto jackets, denim, slipdresses, and blazers in neutral colors that go together. I use accessories—like these slingbacks from The Row or this Mark Cross bag—as an opportunity to add a pop of color.”

Tip: Punctuate with Jewelry

“I try to be a Marine when packing for a fashion trip and bring only the essentials—each piece must make sense in the rotation. I always make sure to bring along a thoughtful selection of jewelry as personal talismans to add novelty to my classic style. When I pack, I carefully store fragile pieces in hard clutches or sunglasses cases, and I make sure to bring individual baggies to keep pieces from getting scuffed or tangled. Valuable pieces always go in my carry-on.”

Tip: Dress from the Hair Down

FENDI Coated Plaid Wool Tweed Coat / SAINT LAURENT Leopard-Print Wool Voile Blouse / FENDI Coated Wool Tweed Miniskirt / GOLDEN GOOSE Women’s Slide Sneakers / LOEWE Filipa Sunglasses

“I tend to make a statement with my hair, so that’s always the starting point for planning my Fashion Week outfits. I like to balance out my blonde braids with monochromatic looks that feel streamlined without being boring, like this Fendi coat–and–skirt combo. And I’m never afraid to have fun with the color palette, like choosing to mix in a clashing print that still feels tonal and coordinated.”

Tip: Make Your Denim Work Hard

ULLA JOHNSON Bailey Bibbed Dotted Voile Blouse / RE/DONE Double Needle Crop Jeans / ALAÏA Snakeskin Ankle-Strap Sandals / THE ROW Double-Circle Velvet Small Bag

“The trick to packing for Paris is balancing style and comfort, since I spend so much time running around between showrooms. I always pack a few pairs of my favorite jeans, including a cropped version that I can pair with sneakers or wear to show off a great heel. Statement tops and feminine blouses can make the outfit while taking up very little space, and a versatile blazer is great for layering. My biggest indulgence? Packing an extra shoe or dress just to have options, as I believe that a great outfit can cure jet lag!”
