About the look:
If I were to go to New York Fashion Week, this is one of the outfits I would choose to wear. Urban Opulence is a classy, urban ensemble that reflects the style of a typical New York worker or city-boy student. I first used basic pieces as the foundation for the outfit and built it up with a heathered grey blazer, brown boots, and a matching canvas shopper. I also chose to wear my glasses (I usually wear contacts) to add a bit more substance to my look. I think it's important to embrace you have glasses and use it as a fashion accessory! From my glasses and blazer to my boots and jeans, I have created the perfect smart-casual and urban ensemble.
It is my dream to attend New York Fashion Week because to me, fashion is not only a hobby, but a lifestyle. Everyday, I research new trends for next season (or even next year) to try and keep up with this fast-paced and evolving industry. The best way anyone can learn is by first hand experience. Being part of such a big event will help me grow and strengthen my knowledge on the different aspects of the fashion world. To be in the centre of it all and to take in the creative atmosphere of fashion week is a dream come true.
