Back to the tents, or whatever you call them these days. Yukiro and I attended the Concept Korea show at New York Fashion Week.

At Lincoln Center — home of NYC’s ballet and opera, and the locus of the major fashion designer shows.

Since many of you asked about how to attend NY fashion week, let’s walk through the process.

The runway shows are invite-only. The PR companies send out invitations to press and influencers. You can also email the firms a request, but they’ll only extend an invite if you’re deemed worthy.

Only guests with invitations are allowed to enter. Inside, we collected product samples (such as hair products and nail polish), and posed for photos.

My makeup took only a minute. It works. I colored my lips with M.A.C. Cyber dark purple lipstick, a must-have.

The Fashion GPS system checks us in with a QR code. While waiting to enter, we read the free WWD Daily magazines.

These days, not all shows are “walk the runway.” Many, like this one, are “presentations” where the models stand around.

Led by the government, the Concept Korea project “is designed to expand global recognition of rising Korean designers and their work.” Doho’s sequins and furs stood out. (You can get the same look for less, with this faux fur jacket.)

Lie Sang Bon’s structured coats remind me of these by Balmain.

A 1970s vibe from Steve J & Yoni P. For a more wearable version, I’d try a flared yellow skirt.

Onward, to free food! There were several press-only lounges in the neighborhood, serving soy lattes and snacks. We took full advantage.

I hope you’re enjoying my inside peek at NYFW. More to come.

    I love seeing fashion from all over the world. I design clothing with aspirations of starting my own fashion line and these photos inspire me, give me ideas, and keep me current to the latest trends. It looks like you had a blast!

    I kiiinda would have liked to see them on Korean models to be honest! But there are some lovely looks in there, I’m becoming more and more fond of korean fashion.

    Its Belfast Fashion Week this week actually, you can buy tickets but I didn’t get around to it this year. Would love to go to New York fashion week.
