As a fashion buyer, it should take you no more then two days to get all your research and shopping done. When I go to New York, the easiest is to hit Soho first and walk it from beginning to the end, and then go to Fifth Ave to observe.
I have had pretty bad luck on this trip, as the minute I arrived I got the worst flu ever. Unfortunately I couldn’t lie in bed ‘cos I only had two days to work. At one point, from taking so many disprin, viral choice and god knows what, I was quite delirious and felt a bit like the girl in Lost in Translation.
The weather was amazing, which made it easier to walk around outside. The last time I was in New York it was covered in snow and miserably cold.. I have never seen the parks looks so cool on a summer’s day, with everyone lounging around on the grass. When we get hot in Cape Town, we go to the beach. In New York – they hit the park
About to hit Soho…
