Writers, Editors, Bloggers, have you checked your schedules? There is a show scheduled at Lincoln Center at 10AM, then the lunch you set up weeks ago with your old editor visiting from out of town, and lateness is not an option for the presentation at Milk Studios from 2:00-2:20. After weeks of planning, emailing, planning, scheduling and more planning, New York Fashion Week is here again. To everyone else, don’t be alarmed when you hear the grunts and moans from ladies walking the streets in 4 inch heels — they’re just in need of a spa treatment! Set a side an hour or so throughout jam packed day to indulge. We’ve already done the dirty work below and these spas are centered in the mist of the hoopla, you just need to go.
