That's just a bit more money then I have right now, ah well, someday.

Do other well known fashion designers get invited to other designers shows? For example, would Marc Jacobs be invited to the Prada Show?

I've always wanted to attend NY Fashion week also, if you have absolutely no connections whatsoever, is there any way you can write to the store and ask for tickets?

I'm sure you can do whatever you want, but why would they want to give tickets to some random person when they could be using them on people who are in the industry, you know?

Yeah ... first they want the big fashion magazine editors and big name stylists there who can help publicize the line, then the store buyers who will sell the line and celebs (fashion industry and others) to get the press for more PR for the line. Once all those people are in, then the people who work for or know these people are in .. because .... just because the big shots get as many tickets as they want ... a lot of the times. Then crew (makeup artists, hair stylists, fashion stylists, dressers, etc.) gets some tickets, sometimes. Then, if all the seats are not filled the rest of us get in with pretty so-so credentials. But the designers in the tents are in such demand ... that they really never need to fill seats .... they have to turn hundreds away.

It's a bit easier in L.A. so far (same people put L.A. FAshion week on, so it's very similar ... just lower level designers). I've been able to get in through some of the designer's PR people ... if I've used the line in an editorial during the year or from makeup artists the I've worked with that are working the show. It gets harder every year in L.A. because we are gettting some bigger designers now ... and that trend seems to be continuing.

You can get backstage if you know a model in the show. (She'll say you're her sister or cousin.) I think that's more fun than the show anyhow. Sure, there's no shwag but excluding the top designers, I often find the catwalk tedious. I have been to some bad, bad shows before! hahaha...

Tips On How To Sneak Into The Shows...
I just wanted to ask since I plan on moving to Manhattan soon. Do you have to pay money to get in? Or is it simply invite only?!

Good luck!

as mentioned before, you can't just go to a fashion show if you're not invited!
is there any site with dates of coming fashion weeks or latest fashion shows?
