Fashion Week Packing List
For those of us in fashion, the end of August means one thing: fashion month is just around the corner. For editors, the marathon sprint that sees the industry bouncing from New York to London to Milan to Paris, is mere days away. When it comes to fashion months, we at FLARE live by the maxim, “Divide and conquer,” with one or two of us jetting off to separate locales. (Someone has to be in the office to produce the December issue!)
Nevertheless, though I’ll be attending but one fashion week, the prospect is already causing serious heart palpitations. I’m heading to London—a hot bed of newsy young designers and avant-garde talent—and I'm reeling with excitement, but seriously: what will I wear?! I prefer classic and slightly practical (I’ll be trotting around for 12 hours a day, people!) and while I will likely be recycling many a vintage skirt and well-worn leather moto, herein is my fantasy packing list. Let’s pretend for a just minute, that this is my London look.
