How To Experience NYFW Without Attending NYFW

Join the hype without leaving your room

While some people feel as though social media invokes a very real sense of FOMO, this is not the case during New York Fashion Week. In fact, during NYFW social media serves as a means of inclusivity. Thanks to platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, no longer are fashion fans prohibited from entering the exclusive shows of fashion week and gone are the days of having to wait six months for magazines (LOL, hi) to showcase clothing shown months before. In fact, some designers (we’re looking at you Rebecca Minkoff) make the process so instantaneous that they allow attendees to purchase clothing immediately after the runway show.

It’s been said millennials crave immediate satisfaction, and it doesn’t get more immediate than fashion week in 2016. So, how does one get in on this? We’ve rounded up the coolest bloggers, influencers, and editors who will be in attendance, (and divided them by social media platform) giving you an insider look at one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Put on your coziest sweats and charge up your laptop to get the best #views of the action from home.

Instagram is undoubtedly the most well-crafted representation of New York Fashion Week. With carefully selected filters, coveted backstage photos, and beautifully curated images, this platform will be the place fashion-savvy folks will be flocking to.

It doesn’t get more behind-the-scenes than Snapchat. From designers showing off makeup looks pre-runway to models snapping the action going on backstage, Snapchat is the ultimate insider's resource to keeping up with fashion week.

Don't forget about Twitter in a sea of image-focused platforms. Many still favor Twitter when it comes to commentary on shows, posting of-the-moment updates, and the realest views on fashion week.
