POPULAR @ NYFW with Rachel Nguyen


Sep 14, 2015

For Spring 2016, Rachel Zoe presented a collection inspired by the late Seventies / early Eighties called “Modern Gypsy”. Our friend + fashion blogger, Rachel Nguyen (from That’s Chic), covered the show for POPULAR with a photo diary and played our NYFW POP Quiz.


1. When did you attend your first NYFW? My first time was in college (and I’m 25 now) and I remember begging my dad to let me go. He didn’t want anything to get in the way of my studies, he eventually let me go that season but that was definitely the most rememberable fashion week. The one where you meet new friends and have stuck with them since.

2. What is the best advice you would offer someone who is attending their first NYFW?Make friends, uncomfortable heels aren’t chic, don’t forget to feed yourself, coconut water is your friend, don’t peacock to photographers.
3. What do you look forward to most about NYFW? Seeing friends and getting reinspired
4. What show(s) were you looking forward most to attend? Rodarte, rag and bone, and Coach.
5. Favorite outfit you have worn this week? My custom Vans jacket over my Realisation satin mini dress
6. Most memorable moment to date from NYFW? Why? My most memorable moment isn’t a cool one as much as it is funny, but I got dropped at Lincoln Center during a rain storm – incredibly flustered because I was late meeting a client there. Then once I got out and found cover, I was encountered by a wall of photographers and that moment realized my phone was in the cab that drove off. Needless to say, there are a lot of awful photos of me about to try somewhere in the world.
7. Least favorite part of NYFW? That everyone feels (including myself) that there’s something to prove
8. Favorite designer/show? Coach – ahhh its soooo good. Relatable, elevated, and keeps us guessing.
9. Most used product during NYFW? My vlogging camera and a metro card
10. What is the most POPULAR thing about NYFW? To do you and not care!
