We had a lot going on here in New York this weekend. Between Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year, President’s Day, you would think we had enough. But oh, no! It is New York Fashion Week and the Westminster Dog Show. I have to admit, the dogs are cuter. The models actually look twiggy and scary in person.
First to Fashion Week. I was on a mission to get my mom’s birthday present. Thus, the walking sneakers. It was a sprint up to 47th street and I was all about comfort:
I didn’t fit in with the black and heels at Bryant Park, but had to stand long enough to get one shot. I did decide smokey purple eyes are in this year. Fashion tip from Jill, right there for you. This is the last year Fashion Week will be held at Bryant Park. It will be moving to Lincoln Center, after a 2 year search for a new venue. Apparently, it’s grown too big for the park and will have more space further uptown. And additional underground parking, and 13,000 square feet of additional space.
I did see a few shows being set up in the larger galleries in Chelsea, which provide some interesting spaces.
If you are lucky, you’ll get a peak of the dogs that compete in the Westminster Dog show around Madison Square Garden. This dog was following it’s owner down the street (no leash even). I actually had to run a few blocks to catch up with them to get this shot. I have no idea what kind of dog this is, either.
It’s a great mix here in New York, this weekend was no exception.
