“During NYFW I tend to dress a little more outrageous than my normal day-to-day style,”
Samantha Riggi, a fashion assistant at Factory PR relayed to us in an interview below. “It’s a fun and exciting time for the entire industry and an ideal time to debut new looks – hence me experimenting with blue lips.” One idea we’ve always loved exploring is the motivation behind one’s personal style. With regard to today’s story, we’re taking this one step further to explore if there is any heightened anticipation in getting dressed for NYFW events. Just as the subzero temperatures set in, we sent our new contributing photographer Kelsey Ann Rose on a mission to find a few people to speak more to these ideals – and of course those who had a unique and unapologizing sense of personal style. We wanted to know whether or not people felt a certain sense of “pressure” or expectations to meet a certain sartorial standard during an industry event like NYFW, and if their approach to getting dressed varied any differently than it does on a day-to-day basis. We were able to catch up with two dynamic women outside of Milk Studios who offered up some insight on this. Discover their thoughts and also shop an edit inspired by their eclectic tastes below.
