NYFW Runways that you can actually visit when in the City

New York, NY, USA
New York Fashion Week starts tomorrow kicking off a new season of shows and style. To celebrate and honor it I've prepared a special warm up list: 5 tourist attractions that served as stage for some of the most beautiful SS24 collection presentations. From Downtown to Uptown, Brooklyn to the Roosevelt Island... these places should be on your next NYC trip bucket list:

Cucculelli Shaheen

Manhattan Municipal Building

Titled “American Venus,” Collection Sixteen was named after the original American Venus who posed for the statue that sits atop the Manhattan Municipal Building, and is influenced by the energy of New York. Co-creative directors Anthony Cucculelli and Anna Shaheen showcased it under the beautiful arch of the iconic building at dusk.

The David N. Dinkins Municipal Building is a 40-story, 580-foot building at 1 Centre Street, east of Chambers Street, in the Civic Center neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. The structure was built to accommodate increased governmental space demands after the 1898 consolidation of the city's five boroughs.

Constructed in 1914, then named after a former New York City mayor in 2015, the structure which incorporates Roman, Renaissance, classical, and beaux arts styles is a draw for architecture and history fans.

Carolina Herrera

The Whitney Museum

Set against the iconic backdrop of Renzo Piano’s Whitney Museum of American Art, the Carolina Herrera woman emerges in a vision of cosmopolitan elegance.

The Whitney Museum of American Art, known informally as "The Whitney", is a modern and contemporary American art museum located in the Meatpacking District and West Village neighborhoods of Manhattan in New York City.

The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holdings of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The museum's collection houses more than 23,000 works by 20th- and 21st-century American artists. It includes paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat, films by Andy Warhol, photographs by Richard Avedon, sculptures by Alexander Calder, and more than 3,000 other artists.

Take the Subway - The easiest way to get to the Whitney Museum in Manhattan is via the subway and exiting at 14th Street. You can take the A, C and E trains to get to 15th and 16th streets at 8th Avenue; then take the L train to 14th Street and 8th Avenue. The museum is five-blocks from the stop.

Tory Burch

Museum of Natural History

Tory Burch Spring/Summer 2024 collection was presented at the iconic American Museum of Natural History. The show happened in the atrium of the Richard Gilder Center — a new, cave-like wing of the Museum designed by the Chicago-based architect, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang.

The American Museum of Natural History is a natural history museum on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City. It possess the most scientifically important collection of dinosaurs and fossil vertebrates in the world, and it has six halls that tell the story of vertebrate evolution.

Michael Kors

Domino Park Brooklyn

Michael Kors presented his spring-summer 2024 collection overlooking Manhattan at Domino Park in Brooklyn: a five-acre public park along the Williamsburg waterfront, named for the former Domino Sugar Refinery.

Wether going for a walk or having some time out with the kids, Domino Park offers a relaxing day for all. This is a good place for your morning walk, jogging, picnic and relaxing on river front just opposite Manhattan - divided by river.

You can enter the park from Kent Avenue at South 5th Street, South 3rd Street, or Grand Street and you can get there taking the Subway from J/M/Z to Marcy Avenue or the L train to Bedford Avenue.
