Reasons why you should only stay at The Dominick hotel during NYFW

CONVENIENCE 

One of the most annoying and stressful (and costly) parts of NYFW is the constantly traveling back and forth between shows. Not only will this cause you a ton of anxiety that you are about to miss a fashion show you’ve been anticipating for months. But you also don’t want to sit in traffic for hours. The Dominick is located walking distance from NYFW main venues. Spring studios, Clarkson Skylight and Pier 59. But If the weather is bad, they have umbrellas that they hand out if you don’t plan on using a car service. 

AMENITIES 

New York Fashion Week isn’t all glitz and glamour, it’s stressful and a lot of work, and will leave you feeling more and more exhausted as the days go by. I stayed at The Dominick in September for fashion week last season and took advantage of the fabulous outdoor pool bar. If you come in September, I recommend getting a Hamman treatment at the award winning spa . It’s one of the only places in the world where this service is offered. 

SHOPPING

The Dominick is just steps away from some of the best shopping in the country. Not only will you be in the heart of Soho in less than 2min, but you will find everything from Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to Zara and H&M and some cool vintage shop! Don’t forget to grab a few  La Durée macaroons and cronuts from the Dominik bakery before you return.

THE SIMPLE THINGS

As soon as a wake up, I always need a glass of water. The Dominik always has complementary bottles of water one your bedside.  The staff are some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met and if available the house car will drop you off anywhere within 2miles free of charge. Its the simple things that make your NYFW so much more enjoyable! 

SECURITY AND HOUSEKEEPING 

I was in a rush…and I left my Van Cleef Necklace and Bvlgari rings out of the safe.  I unknowingly  did this, But I came back to the room to find them all neatly placed right beside my toiletries and clothing that housekeeping perfectly organized for me. Like excuse me, what?! Talk about staff that is extremely trustworthy and goes out of their way to ensure comfort! 

Pink Champagne Anyone ? #ClicquotCrew

Anybody in need of a nice cold crisp glass of champagne ? Well, if you’re like me and had a long week… Why not treat yourself? Like many people, Veuve Clicquot has always my first choice for a quick dose of bubbles when in need.
I typically only stick to the signature orange collection… But recently, I got to try out Veuve Clicquot’s Rosè for the first time and I’m SOLD hunnie! The pallet for this champagne is extra dry and medium body which I LOVE! But you still get aromas of red berry. Upon pouring the champs in your glass, you will notice that the colour is a beautiful light pink colour. Which is not only a nice change but a conversation peice of your order it at a restaurant. Champagne anybody ?

Bright colours and florals for fall? YES! – MICHAEL KORS F/W 2018

Regardless if you like it or not, Michael Kors is one of the biggest and most anticipated fashion shows of the entire fashion month schedule. Not to be mistaken with main stream Michael Kors label. Michael Kors Collection is the company’s black label couture line, and these are the pieces that are making their way down the catwalk and major red carpet around the world.

Year after year, the Michael Kors fashion show closes off New York Fashion Week with a bang! This season’s show took place at Lincoln centre which not only nostalgic, But also a nice treat to the New York Fashion Week Veterans as Lincoln Centre was the main fashion week venue from 2010-2015. Blake Lively, Anna Wintour, Grace Coddinton, Jordan Dun, Zendaya were all in attendance. Sadly, I wasn’t able to make it to the fashion show. But I thankfully still had the opportunity to see the entire collection up close just personal moments after the show at the Michael Kors corporate offices in Midtown.

A trend I noticed that is especially prevalent the Michael Kors show was the use of  bright colours and the floral prints. Both very reminiscent of a Spring/ Summer fashion collection.  But I love that we are starting to see more bright colours incorporated into fall fashion mustard yellow and apple green shearling fur coats paired with floral print dresses.  Not only is it refreshing to see, But I live in a very cold metropolitan city and I’m running out of fabulous winter outfits and ideas. I think I’m going to rock a mustard yellow fur next season! Thoughts?
