For lovers of men’s fashion, New York Fashion Week is the most wonderful time of the year. This is especially true for those who can travel up to New York but may not be as fortunate to venture overseas for some of the other fashion weeks full of the upcoming looks. One of the best days to hit town is Day 1 for New York Men’s Day.
If you follow fashion or read Men’s Life DC during while it hits the shows twice a year, you know that New York Men’s Day is the brainchild of AgentryPr who created these show as a way to showcase the agency’s hottest designers and give them their own forum. The event is now considered the kick of New York Fashion Week.
