I’m Attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2013 in New York
Yesterday, after my run I checked my email and saw that I was invited to New York Fashion Week and I was so excited I had a hard time catching my breath. I can already taste the croque monsieur at le Bernardinin Manhattan come February 7th – 14th 2013. For those of you rolling your eyes you probably want to skip to the next paragraph. As for everyone else, getting an invite to go to MBFW is mega! It’s the “cherry” on the proverbial “top” of the fashion world and being invited means… a lot! I can almost die a happy fashion blogger, but first… I had to get through the media accreditation process… Not easy.
I sat down with my laptop, a hope, and a prayer and filled out the extensive forms necessary to weed out the weak and undeserving. Or perhaps they are just to see if you’ll fill them out properly, like a job preliminary survey? In any event I sent them off before the midnight deadline on the same day, and held my breath until this morning.
. . . . .
With nervousness and astonishment I awoke. I walked casually to my iPhone and scrolled through the E-mails of the day so far. . . There is was.
We are happy to inform you that your application for Press and Industry Accreditation for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York F/W 2013 has been approved.”
I let out a sigh of relief and with my next breath then shrieked my excitement. This of course awoke the dogs and children three floors above and below me causing an almost orchestrated celebratory chorus that aided in capturing the moment perfectly. The only thing I needed then was a grand full cape made of fur and feathers to don while I shout my total excitement off my balcony to the streets below. I am attending MBFW Fall 2013.
Now What to wear?
Maybe I could hitch-hike to MBFW in this… It’s Mercedes-Benz after all!
