These NYFW Events Are Open To The Public
Fashion Week is always an awesome reminder that status is everything and no matter how much you love fashion, you’re still a peasant who’s waiting outside the venue hoping to catch a glimpse of Karl Lagerfeld.
Thankfully, some brands are trying to make fashion week more “accessible” to mere mortals with under one thousand Instagram followers. Here are all the New York Fashion Week events that are open to the public (although they’re not all free). If you don’t see your fave designer on here, don’t worry, you can always sneak in.
Keep checking this page for more events as we find them.

The first 50 people to get the treatment will also receive a complimentary travel-size Kerastase hair masque of their choice. They list the price for Fusio Dose at $60, so we’re a little confused if it’s free or not? Maybe you can find out.

8. Rebecca Minkoff
What: Rebecca Minkoff will be presenting her collection on the streets of SOHO, according to The Observer. They’ll also be live-streaming it in Virtual Reality.
