WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE MOST FUN MOMENT OF FASHION WEEK?
Seeing how street style photographer Craig Arend works. Chatting with the Song Sisters.
WHAT DID YOU LIKE THE LEAST?
Going up and down the west side, freaking out uselessly about what i should wear
ANY FAVORITE SHOWS?
Loved speaking with Mara Hoffman and Marissa Webb, then seeing their clear aesthetic and beautiful visions come down the runway.
I got last minute tickets to Jeremy Scott and for me, it was a little anticlimactic.
HOW DO YOU STAY ENERGIZED?
I took caffeine breaks, and skipped on shows. I also did not do a lot of parties. people energize me – I took time to keep it real and chat with for example, the person I sat next to, or a blogger at an event or the hairdresser who braided my hair.
WHO WERE YOU REPORTING FOR?
I filed multimedia content for forbeslife – forbes.com/sites/koim

I wish I could have seen Givenchy and Ralph Lauren in person.
CRAZIEST OUTFIT YOU SAW OR CRAZIEST WAY YOU SAW SOMEONE TRYING TO GET IN?
Nothing’s crazy in fashion.
OF THE SHOWS YOU SAW DO YOU HAVE A DREAM OUTFIT YOU WOULD BUY?
All the Son Jung Wan. Metallics and dresses are my favorites.
