The Best Way to Watch The Shows at New York Fashion Week!

As an editor covering Fashion Week, you get to experience a lot of cool things. You can catch celebrities in the flesh (I bumped into - literally - Paris & Nicki Hilton yesterday at The Daily Style Sessions Fashion Week lounge.). You can meet models and designers and see their gorgeous collections up close and personal. But of all the cool stuff that's happened this week, nothing comes close to my experience at the Herve Leger show on Saturday.

I was invited to watch the show at the AMEX Skybox - a rare treat even for the most celebrated fashion editors. The American Express Skybox is a cardmember lounge perched high above the runways of New York Fashion Week. Unlike the crowded seats below it, guests are able to enjoy the shows on plush couches while eating & drinking delicious food from celeb chef Todd English

But beyond the amazing view from the Skybox, the best part about the entire experience is that guests get exclusive access to designers and industry heavyweights.

After the Herve Leger show, I got to enjoy a chat with Herve designer (& Max Azria's wife) Lubov Azria, who shared stories of her children sleeping front row at a show and what's kept her and her husband so successful in the business.
