The Steele Maiden NYFW Survival Guide

The first time I attended NYFW it was held at Bryant Park – I was 20 years old, interning for designer Nanette Lepore and dressing models backstage.  Many years later, a few venues and about a hundred blisters later.. I like to think I’ve learned a thing or two about how to get through this wild week in one piece. These days I’m lucky enough to be reporting from backstage rather than frantically dressing girls a foot taller than me – but no matter what situation I find myself in I’ve narrowed a list of things that will help me survive it in style.
