As a Pacific northwest girl, I have traveled to nearly every major city on the west coast. That said, I have NEVER been to the east coast. And, like everyone that's interested in fashion, New York City is very much so a hot spot on my list of must-do travel destinations. Everyone tells me that fashion in New York City is completely different than any place on the west coast and I would love to see firsthand if this is true. I have been living variously through LCD Soundsystem's discography and friends' accounts of The Big Apple for much of my young adult life, so I think it's about time I get myself over to the east coast. And what better opporunity than to go with Chictopia and Ariat? Plus, as a journalism student, it would be an absolute honor to cover NYFW as my first fashion event.
