Spring has only just arrived but already the world is looking to Spring-Summer 2019 as Fashion Week descends on New York, London, Milan and Paris this month.
This is an exciting time for the Airbnb community. As New York Fashion Week opens today, Airbnb has unveiled that the number of fashion Experiences available in the city has tripled in the past year, and since August 2017, the number of fashion Experiences on the platform has quadrupled globally.
With huge fashion forward communities, it’s no wonder that these four capitals of style have a wealth of high quality fashion-focused Experiences on Airbnb. Below is a sampling that will give guests exclusive access to the chicest corners of the fashion world:
Airbnb has teamed with iconic fashion “futurist” Jerome LaMaar for an intimate fashion and styling experience at his studio in the South Bronx. Jerome will share stories about his fashion career and his fashion forecast for 2019 and beyond, teaching guests how to embellish a basic garment for maximum style, followed by a fashion photo shoot with a professional photographer.
Fabiana is a personal stylist, a social media influencer and a fashion designer entrepreneur whose motto is, “dress every day like you have to act in your favourite movie.” Guests follow Fabiana through the streets of NY to receive a personalised style guide and tailored shopping experience based on your personal style and taste – not to mention VIP treatment from every store you walk into.
