#757 New York New York


Image/ Purple Diary

I've just returned from the travel agent and there's no backing out now - I'm going to New York. On Wednesday the 2nd of September, 12 days from now, I'll be flying out from Auckland, via San Francisco and arriving at JFK at 12:45am on the third. I'm there for NY Fashion Week, which will include a show by New Zealand's Karen Walker, and I'll be covering it all in the same way that I did the European shows last month - by Twitpic, on Isaac Likes and on the NZ Herald website. On the 18th of September I fly back for NZ Fashion Week, then if budget permits (which I would assume it probably won't), I'll leave the day after NZ Fashion Week for Milan and then Paris. That's the dream, but unless some wealthy benefactor comes along and throws a whole pile of cash at me before then, it probably won't turn into a reality. Here's hoping! Oh, and does anybody have any suggestions for where I should stay?

I LIKE YOU!

That's where Jamie and Alison from the Kills always stay when they're in New York.

Since you'll be writing for the NZ Herald, will they not give you 'a(or half a) pile of cash' for Milan & Paris?

isaac, chelsea hotel is like 400 a night...i would recommend the jane hotel. extremely small rooms (think ship cabin) with shared bathrooms, but only 79 a night and has one of the coolest bars in the city. seriously.

It shouldn't matter what nationality they are, or whether to is a fair representation of the NZ population, it is about who looks good and will look good in the clothes and represent the brand.
