How to Prepare for Fashion Week

fashionWith the international fashion shows season just around the corner, you need to be organised if you plan on attending. These top tips for the fashionistas amongst you will help to ensure that you have everything that you need before your alarm clock goes on the day of departure.

Pack in advance
You will have items that are necessary to take: laptop, hard drive, camera, business cards and chargers, and those that you would like to take such as books and comfy sweaters. Remember to pack any toiletries into plastic bags, you do not want any spillages onto your clothes. Your clothes: you will more than likely have been fretting about what to wear for several weeks ahead of the fashion show, and while you will be tempted to keep adding items to your bag, it is important that you don’t exceed the weight limit for your carrier.

Each item that you select must be able to be worn in a multitude of ways, for example, turtlenecks can be worn with slip dresses, undershirts, with skirts or trousers. Remember that accessories can transform the same outfit, and are lighter to pack and carry. Check the weather before you leave, Paris, for example, is notably warmer at this time of year than New York, London or Milan, and so you need to pack accordingly.

Before your departure day, make sure that you have arranged transport from the airport to your hotel, and that you have the necessary details to access it. You may be tired from travelling when you arrive, and the last thing that you will want to have to try and arrange is transport to your hotel. Your return flight is another issue, and you have time to consider all options, but arriving in a city to go to an area that you are not familiar with is another story.

Your travel clothes
Make sure that you are comfortable when you are traveling. To avoid having to pack your large winter coat and risk creasing it, wear your coat to travel in. It will also double up as a blanket to keep you warm during your flight, and as people have a tendency to get tearful on flights, you will be grateful for the additional comfort!

Airport check-in
Take full advantage of checking-in for your flight ahead of arriving at the airport. Not only will you avoid the queues of people, but you will be able to get through passport control and security without stressing about the time that it invariably takes you. You will be able to arrive at your departure gate in good time to have a drink, and read a book or catch up with sporting events on the Unibet blog before you have to board.

Once you have arrived at your destination and booked into your hotel, you can exhale. The temptation will be to get right out there and soak up the Fashion Week vibes, but remember that you have all week, and you need to pace yourself to make the most of it! Have a wonderful time!
