What do Fashion Week and food have to do with each other? Well, a lot, depending on who you're asking. Here at The Latin Kitchen, we make everything about food, so it wasn't hard to see the resemblance between some of these cocktail recipes and the trends we've been seeing make their way down the runway at New York Fashion Week.
Inspired by this incredible video made by the International Culinary Center of a model EATING a Chanel bag on the NYC subway and Bon Appetit's 15 look-alike recipes, we're officially in a (foodie) Fashion Week frenzy. To celebrate with our own twist (literally and metaphorically), we rounded up cocktails inspired by Fashion Week's latest trends, some Latin, some too-interesting and spot-on to ignore.
Below this week's do-not-miss video (Make sure to watch it all the way to the very end!), check out all the Fashion Week looks and their corresponding cocktails!

Aptly-named, this cocktail reminds us of Betsey Johnson's funky purple sequin dress that screamed fun, fun, fun all the way down the catwalk.
