It’s no small feat to survive and thrive in our beloved but, let’s face it, tumultuous industry. We asked our favorite Front Row-ers how they’ve done it…
TENURE: Nine years.
WHY I MADE IT: Dedication to my craft— and coffee.
FAITHFUL FRIENDS My partner, Gustavo.
FIRST SHOW: Playing dress up with my dolls when I was 8.
WOW MOMENT: Seeing the collection come to life seconds before the models walk out.
MY NYFW RIDE: A Cadillac.
GO-TO LOOK: My uniform—black sweater, black blazer, black jeans, and Stan Smiths.
FRONT-ROW FIXTURES: My parents—they usually come from Taipei.
ESSENTIALS: A photo printer, Instagram, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, but I really rely on my great Wu team.
BREAKFAST: A hard-boiled egg.
SURVIVAL SECRET: A few hours of sleep.
NOTE FOR NYFW ORGANIZERS: Relax, and enjoy!
