The Tommy Pier was the most talked about extravaganza this Fashion Week season in New York! The designer, Tommy Hilfiger, collaborated with 21-year-old model Gigi Hadid to present the Tommy x Gigi collection, carnival style.
The runway show was held at Pier 16 South Street Seaport setting the tone for the nautical theme on September 9th. The next day the carnival was open to the public rebroadcasting the show throughout the carnival on large screens. I had to see it for myself!
Literally, as I’m walking to the entrance I stumbled into a crowd of people lined up waiting for Gigi to make an appearance. Talk about being at the right place, at the right time! I was so close she almost touched me while waving…hahaha!!
I was freaking out for about five minutes and so was every other fashion obsessed girl. The crowd was ecstatic and Gigi was flawlessly making her way through each attraction at the carnival, occasionally taking selfies with fans.
Tommy Pier included fair rides and games, a ferris wheel, classic fairground foods such as pretzels, hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream sandwiches, cotton candy, lobster rolls, doughnuts and French fries. And fashion!
Tommy, you really outdid yourself this year! Who do you think will top Tommy’s fashion carnival?
