Megan blogs at TfDiaries and is unusually serious about blogging. She puts tremendous effort into her posts. They are remarkable and, in them, Megan displays sizable talents as a stylist and model. Megan used to work in the fashion industry and she still has connections there. That's why she comes to Fashion Week, where she gets VIP treatment and entry into exclusive shows.
Waiting for Megan, I hovered around the FW entrance where burly security guards enforced the "Not Open To Public" barrier. Famous models and industry insiders wandered in and out of the building. The path was crowded with professional photographers snapping pictures. It was like a red carpet event with excitement and buzz in the crisp air. ("Who's that?!", people kept whispering as fashionably-dressed beauties passed by.)
Best of all, the event is held in Lincoln Center, which is a gorgeous place for the arts in the heart of Manhattan. You feel special just being there. You may remember Cher, in the movie "Moonstruck", swooning before the water fountain in the plaza while waiting to attend an opera.
In between fashion shows, Megan ventured out and we grabbed a pleasant brunch. We caught up on all matters, personal and bloggy. Megan looked fantastic in a hat studded with sea-life ornaments and an amazingly-beautiful color of lipstick.
After our meeting, Megan retreated to another show and I walked around the city, camera in hand. The urban landscape is so full of arresting visual imagery. I took a bunch of photos, shown below. I hope you enjoy them.
