Every Fashionista has most likely been keeping up with New York Fashion Week. If not… tomorrow is the last day! Try and check it out before it’s over because it is an amazing event. New York is one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world, and this week they have been hosting the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It is one of the most famous fashion events, and my dream is to one day attend this event. But in the mean time, here is some interesting information that you may not have already known!
