Hey Mishka - What To Do In NYC - Shopping - NIghtlife

So much going on! Every week gets busier than the last as we creep closer to spring with shows, parties, birthday celebrations, and of course… school stuff. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

I ordered a bunch of colored tights from We Love Colors, and I’m totally obsessed. It’s going to be hard not to collect ’em all.

Fabric shopping for Senior collection with Sab: a wild goose chase of aesthetic second-guessing. I ended up buying yardage for two garments of my first look.

 

More of this week…

A trip to the MET to get lost in worlds past and have a long overdue reunion with my brilliant friend Jean.

After fabric shopping and museum-wandering, a dance party was in order! Steve Aoki came to Webster Hall last night and we threeeew down.

I celebrated Fat Tuesday at a bar called Fat Baby in the LES, in the company of Zooey England and Iranian rockstars Hypernova.

The night was full of Mardi Gras beads, free rum, and light fixtures that I tried (but failed) to steal. Oops!

The next morning was rough… I went into class to meet with Alexander Wang for some feedback on my senior collection. It ended up being an amazing session!

We celebrated Jiao’s birthday in one of the workrooms at school, surrounded by dress forms and industrial sewing machines. A metaphor for our lives, for sure.
