It’s always a bittersweet moment for me when NYFW finally comes to an end. It’s eight days of total fashion-fueled insanity, when it seems like the whole of New York is running on caffeine, couture and cab fare. To be fair, this week’s shows are actually ready-to-wear, but you get the idea. As we mentioned in this post, Twitter has become an indispensable tool for keeping up with all the action – from front row celebrity spottings to instantaneous runway reviews.
With a feed as robust as IFB’s (we’re following more than 3,000 handles) it can be a chore to sort through the best tweets and photos – but then again, that’s why we have hashtags! From the hilarious to the helpful, here are the “#”s we loved the most during NYFW:
#NYFW: The most broad and most obvious hashtag for fashion week, search this acronym for any and all photos, stories and tid-bets about fashion week.
#MADE: This is the tag for fashion week activity and shows taking place at Milk Studios.
#MBFW: We used this hashtag to identify any of the New York Fashion Week activity that happened at Lincoln Center, and was sponsored by Mercedes Benz.
#menswear: If you’re looking to take a little break from the onslaught of gowns, make up and sky-high heels, search this hashtag to see what’s trending in the world of men’s apparel. Highlights come from GQ magazine, Valet, and IFBcon panelist SartoriallyInc.
#streetstyle: Use this hashtag for quick access to all the amazing style happening off the runways.
What hashtags did you use during #NYFW? Even if you aren’t in NYC (and maybe especially if you are not), hashtags are a fun and easy way to track your favorite fashion events and happenings.
