New York Fashion Week is back! I didn't think I would be able to make any shows this season but after being a milking cow (more about that later) for a month, I NEEDED to get out. It has been exactly a year since I attended a show (see Jenny Packham and Badgley Mishka posts) so I asked a friend if she's got any invites I could use. I'll be attending three shows. My first show this season is BCBG by Max Azria. The show was kind of a dud for me. The colors and textures were just not to my taste. I think I liked one jacket but that is all. Oh well! I ain't a fashion buyer so it doesn't matter what I think right? I regretted leaving the comfort of our cozy apartment but what was exciting for me was going to Whole Foods after the show to get some sushi haha!
This was my first time attending a show at NYFW's new location since they moved last year. 'Skylight at Moynihan Station' is inside the historic James A. Farley post office on 33rd street. The BCBG show was in one of the larger of the three venues inside Skylight, 'The Arc' which is fairly big and airy. They definitely can fit a lot more people here. However, unlike back in the tents at Lincoln Center, there were no freebies (drinks, greeting cards, complimentary makeup or blow outs etc.). No fun for hanging out.
For the show, I was sitting in the 4th row so I was not close enough to the runway to take decent pictures. This was the best I can do with my iphone and SLR...See more pics after the jump!

|This lady didn't care it was below freezing temperatures in the city. Unlike me, she probably didn't take the subway here...|
|I didn't have time to do my makeup so I put on shades and red lipstick and called it day!|
|Lots of street style photographers and this runway model making the most out of it!|
