Joy Adaeze’s NYFW Diary – Day 1

Influencers, Persons of Interest  /   /  By Joy Adaeze

It’s Joy Adaeze here, blogger of! Earlier this week, I shared my style tips for what to wear the New York Fashion Week and now I’ll take you inside my day-to-day at the fashion-filled week!

My first show of the NYFW season is always BCBG at Lincoln Center, 10am. After hailing a quick cab, I was on my way! It’s never a dull moment outside the tents—there’s fabulously dressed attendees mixed with eager street style photographers—quite the harmonious mix. I got snapped several times, which is always fun. Today I wore a vintage shirt and skirt paired with these Steve Madden camo heels I scored on eBay. My other accessories included a silk turban from my upcoming line, blue ombre floral shades and an electric blue Khirma Eliazov clutch (my all-time favorite handbag designer!)

While inside the show, I spotted singer Estelle, celebrity stylist June Ambrose perched front row with her cuter-than-cute daughter. Also close by were bloggers: Aimee Song and Chriselle Lim. The show was pure BCBG: airy fabrics, light hues and clever cutouts. So wearbable and fun!

After the show, I headed to Starbucks around the corner to check my email and jot down some notes. Aside from blogging, I’m also a writer and cover shows for Huffington Post each season.

Finalizing shows for the week!

After a bit more work on the computer, I headed to Tadashi Shoji‘s romantic show. It was all about lace dresses and beautiful gowns. Tadashi never misses a step when it comes to making women feel absolutely gorgeous!

After the show, it was time to grab a quick lunch! For a quick me up, I like PJ Clarks for their turkey burgers. Not too heavy and very tasty.

After lunch, I jetted off to one of my last shows of the day: Desigual! It was all about color, print and having fun! There was a joyful touch on everything from t-shirts to jumpsuits. Wonderful show!


That’s it for Day 1. Stay tuned next Tuesday for Days 2-5!
