Favorite influencer. Favorite month. Double win.

If you can’t hit the streets during fashion month, or score a front-row seat with the elites, you can at least stay in-the-know with industry insiders like @orionvanessa.

1. What is your advice for anyone attending fashion month for their first time?

“My biggest piece of advice is to not compare yourself to other's attending and allow yourself to rest! My first fashion week, I spent so much time running around like a mad man and feeling like I didn't fit in because I focused so much on the approval of others. Once you start dressing for yourself, discovering what makes you feel the most confident, and giving yourself that space to take a breather and get in as much sleep as possible, everything becomes tremendously more fun! Also, don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, people will fall in love with a look you thought would never wear outside the house.”

2. What shows are you excited about this season?

“Too many to keep up with! But definitely anticipating Burberry, Bottega Veneta, Sergio Rossi, Givenchy and Missoni."

3. What are you wearing for fashion month?

“I used to live in Milan for a brief time in my life and my discovery upon living in Italy was how effortless the women there dressed. I went for a more fun look this season; I picked the Cynthia Rowely Lillia Party dress because it was something seemingly simple, but with a fun print. I paired it with all the right accessories - like this yuzefi bag that pulls a look together in the neutral and chic manner I'm the most familiar with. It feels the most "me"!”
