Hotels for New York Fashion Week
If you don’t live in NYC where should you stay? Well, NYC has some of the finest, most amazing hotels in the entire world, but if I were you, I stay at one of the hotels right across the street from Lincoln Center, that way you can stay out late enjoying the fashion parties and even catch a disco nap during some of the shows.

This year I’m especially excited about the Mercedes Benz presents designer Naeem Khan he makes the most incredible one-of-a-kind dresses and you’ll see lots of them on the red carpet during award season.
