As we all know, getting into fashion week isn’t easy. It requires luck, fame or (if you’re like me in high school) winning a contest. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the glitzy events, clothes and celebrities. Here’s a few events going on this week that you need to know about.
GLAMSQUAD GLAM TAXI
Want a quick makeup or hair touch up before you run to your next appointment? GLAMSQUAD can help with that. Just download the app and jump in their pink taxi. Their Twitter gives away its location. Once inside, the squad’s pros will take you where you need to go (around the main fashion week locations) and give you a few touch ups in between runway shows.
Macy’s Presents Fashion’s Front Row
Remember when I told you Macy’s was holding its own runway show? Well there’s still time to grab a ticket! According to The Theater at Madison Square Garden, its venue, Jason Derulo is set to perform amidst the presentation of fall’s looks from INC International Concepts, Tommy Hilfiger, Sean John, Jessica Simpson and more. Here’s the mobile link for the September 17th event ticketmaster.
“Get Puckered” Beauty Touch Ups at Triumph Hotel
Missed the Glam Taxi? Well whether you’re staying at a Triumph hotel or just passing by, the luxury space is welcoming you and fashion week with complimentary, on-trend touch ups. Pucker Makeup Studio will refresh your look on a first-come, first-serve basis. Here are the dates and times right from the Triumph website:

SJP Comes to Bloomingdales
If you didn’t already know, Sarah Jessica Parker launched her very own shoe line, which is available at Bloomingdales. The fashion icon herself will even be at the SoHo flagship promoting her collection on September 19th! Look for her in the shoe department on the 2nd floor at noon. All you have to do is buy something she designed and you’ll have bought “the golden ticket” to meet her — as well as have it signed! Just be warned, her namesake shoes do not come cheap. In fact, the lowest priced item in her collection is a $48 candle.
The Rise of Sneaker Culture Exhibit
Have a thing for standout sneakers? You’ll want to check out this exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. The event will be on until October 4th and includes 150 pairs of sneakers with some dating as far back as the early 19th century (think 1820s). The best part: it has everything from Prada to the Air Jordan I. See it here for yourself. (If you’re a member or aged 19 and below, you can also see it in-person for free!)
