In addition, this will be pop-star, Rihanna’s, first runway, presenting the new Puma collection.  

“I am so excited to see Rihanna”, stated senior, Riley Rubio. “She is such a talented performer, so I think she will do really well on the runway also.”

Although some events at NYFW are free and open to the public, most events require an $80 application fee, and that does not even guarantee approval of the application. There is good news, however, that everyone is able to watch the fashion shows live online.

Senior, Camille Opp, who has been a professional model for several years states, “I love New York Fashion Week because it is so inspiring and I love seeing everyone come together from all over the world.”

This year’s New York Fashion Week will have many surprises and will definitely be a success!
