If you didn't realize we're in the midst of New York Fashion Week then I might have to take your pulse. Throughout the week fashion devotees will be traipsing all over town viewing Spring/Summer 2012 fashions from top brands and up & coming designers. If you're not able to catch a cab in Manhattan, this is why. Here are some fashionable NYC happenings to add to your calendar for the week if you're not heading to the tents or need a place to escape the madness:
- Eat: Full service NYFW pop-up restaurant GOODNESS from Lancome model Elettra Wiedemann, which features locally sourced, healthy appetizers, entrees and desserts prepared by a few of NYC's top chefs. GOODNESS is open daily from 7am - 3pm for breakfast in the space typically used by Ed's Chowder House, directly across the street from the tents at Lincoln Center, through Sept 14th. Featured chefs include Nick Wilbur of Fat Radish, Christopher Randell of Whitehall, Rob Newton of Seersucker and Ed Brown of Ed's Chowder House. Reservations can be made via the GOODNESS website or Gilt City.
- See: NYFW runway shows from the comfort of your desk, couch, bed via livestreams on YouTube's Live Runway and First Comes Fashion.
- Shop: Buy the street style looks seen on the fashion glitterati attending NYFW through American Express Street Seen, in partnership with Style.com and Net-A-Porter. Visit Style.com daily for top street style looks from the tents, as shot by Tommy Ton, and the opportunity to "shop the look" and recreate your favorite outfit (I'm eyeing a red skinnies/plaid button down pairing.) Added bonus - American Express Cardmembers get $100 off any $500 purchase from Net-A-Porter.
- Do: Travel out to the Long Island wine country for Food & Wine's Harvest East End Festival Tasting on Saturday, Sept 17th. Join East End wineries, restaurants, farmers and food artisans in celebrating all things wine and food from the area - taste wine from 28 different local winemakers and eat locally sourced dishes from 18 different East End restaurants. Tickets are $125 and benefit three local East End charities.
