NYFW Survival Guide: Fiona Green

Our associate fashion editor's New York Fashion Week essentials



Adam Moco

What have you done to prepare for fashion week? Lots of dry cleaning, and waterproofing my leather shoes.

What show are you most excited for? Marc Jacobs

How do you plan to combat tricky weather? With ultra-thin thermal shirts and leggings to wear underneath everything, and my trusty Doc Marten boots.

What items in your wardrobe work overtime when covering the shows? Blazers are key during fashion week. They do triple duty as a smart jacket for daytime, base layer for textured vests, and evening coat over a maxi dress.

What is your top fashion week style tip? Layer, layer, layer. Being on the go for upwards of 12 hours a day means you’ll hit all sort of environments at various venues and in the outdoors, running from show to show. Versatile separates are essential to get you through a demanding schedule.
