Models, stylists, designers, photographers and buyers are about to take New York city by style storm come Sept. 7. As the new spring/summer collections hit runways, fashionistas without a front row seat can still take part in the NYFW festivities at parties, events and more. Here’s where to get in on the action without an invitation or at FREE Events.
One free event not to be missed is the Tommy Pier. Tommy Hilfiger is bringing a free fashion carnival to NYFW to show off his fall collection to the public. “Tommy Pier” will take over South Street Seaport’s Pier 16 on Sept. 9, combining stylish shopping opportunities with classic street fair events, including a 40-foot Ferris wheel, a tattoo pop-up shop and a variety of DJ sets throughout the day. Be sure to check out the latest TommyxGigi designs — a collection featuring collaborations with model Gigi Hadid — before you enjoy the fair rides. South Street Seaport, 89 South St. in Manhattan, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., tommy.com
