NYC Couture Fashion Week: Andres Aquino (Gotham Nights). © 2015 NY Social Agenda (

First of all before we begin, we can never and probably would ever get sick of Fashion Week in New York. There is something about the unexplained good energy presented in those seven days that invites New Yorkers, (and all the fashionistas) to view pure talent – as highlighted through the runway productions and presented by international designers.

That said, we are definitely not complaining at all as we had the privilege to attend the 2015 Couture Fashion Week, simultaneously occurring during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

You don’t even want to look at our social calendar as February approached. It was insane, however, well worth it – and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Behind the scenes:

We attended a few Runway shows from 2/13-2/15 – and every designer during Couture Fashion Week was exceptional – and we felt as if the Collections had a lot more pizazz as opposed to when we attended in previous years.

Meriam Belkhayat:

This is a good thing because that is the whole meaning behind Couture – it should be more amplified, loud, and evoke that feeling to shout, “WOW! That was amazing.”

Andres Aquino:

Though we would like to continue on with our verbal dance regarding our weekend spent at Crown Plaza Hotel, we decided to let you see the pictures and decide for yourself.

La-El Couture:

Should you just happen to visit New York during Fashion Week – whether in September and/or around February, do yourself a favor. Modify your social agenda, buy your tickets for Couture Fashion Week or the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, sit back and enjoy this entire experience from start to finish  – because they are both truly amazing and worth the wait.
