New York Fashion Week is an experience all its own and we want to help you be properly prepared for the most amazing week of the year. From exclusive events to some of the best shopping in the city, here’s how to enjoy NYFW like a true fashionista.

Learn the basics of New York Fashion Week:

New York Fashion Week is the most important week of the year for designers, models and fashion lovers. Fashion Week is a time when designers present their latest collections to buyers and the media. It’s also an opportunity for designers to show their creativity and innovation. The event is held twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. The spring collections are presented during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and the fall collections are presented during New York Fashion Week.

This is the time of year when all of the top designers come together in one place to show off their latest creations. It’s a great way for fashion lovers to keep up with trends and see what’s going on in the world of fashion.

Some of the most anticipated returns are from Tommy Hilfiger, & PUMA who are partnering with AREA.

  • Tommy Hilfiger is making his return to New York City.

Hilfiger will continue his “See now, buy now” model, showcasing his Fall 2022 collection rather than Spring 2023.

Puma will be returning to New York Fashion Week with “Futrograde,” a runway show featuring fashion, music and sport, on Sept. 13. The event will look back at the brand’s heritage and ahead to the future.This marks AREA’s first time showing at NYFW since 2009 so expect big things from them this time around!

A personal stylist can help you find pieces that fit well and flatter your body type, making it easier to cultivate your personal style. On this experience you can visit 4 or more trendy boutiques based on your style, expect introductions to the owners and discounts on shopping where available. We recommend unique downtown NYC locations such as Soho, West Village and East Village but can also craft an uptown shopping experience or a Brooklyn shopping experience.
