One of the things that have always given me a sense inquisitiveness is what actually is inside of a fashionista’s bag during the fashion week. It is one thing to carry around some make-up and a phone but another too actually carry the whole-day’s essentials into that chic vintage bag. Historically, fashion week didn’t see a lot of bloggers, none infact but as the time has passed the count of bloggers has actually long surpassed the count of editors.
What I keep in my bag during fashion week:
A Laptop: People prefer to carry a Tablet or an iPad but since I have a pretty small laptop so I carry that. A laptop will be very handy to upload and post live pictures, access the net etc.
A Book/Magazine or an iPod: Full disclosure: even fashion shows get boring. This is for that in-between show time when you are just sitting somewhere and don’t want to aimlessly at the walls! I prefer to carry my brand new copy of Parisian Chic: A style guide by Ines Des La Fressange (YAY) and a copy of Vogue.
Passes/ Fashion Week Booklets: Just to keep an update on the timings of the most coveted show and basically your whole schedule.
A Notebook and a Pen: Use the good old way to note some dates/catchy words and additional information during the show.
Wallet: Credit cards, debit cards, identity cards, cash (in my case, barely)
Mobile Phone: Obviously
Camera: I prefer to take a normal digital camera since I am not that good a photographer so tagging along a DSLR would just be useless and bulky. But do try to get some shots from a professional.
Chargers: This is perhaps the most important if you are carrying anything electronic and staying all day.
Cosmetic Case: My cosmetic case (which is not a proper case but the side pocket of my bag) mainly comprises of a Topshop eye liner (black of course), a Topshop lip stainer, a Bodyshop concealor, a toner, mint, a hand sanitizer and some wet napkins. Choices can differ.
This is what I usually carry, what will you carry in the Fashion week?
and yeah, Happy Fashion Week you guys!
