Stuff for the Teen Age
Lights, Camera, Fashion! at the Library
Every year in mid September the city is abuzz as the fashion industry’s elite swoop in from various locations across the globe donning their couture duds. This influx of fashion is enough to make even the most fashionable New Yorker on your block feel like an Ugly Betty for the entire span of New York Fashion Week. The glitterati have previewed and reviewed the upcoming styles and partied till the break of dawn, and gone off to wait for the spring fashion events.
Want a taste of the high profile stiletto lifestyle without the price tag? The library has just what you need! Whether you are in search of great fashion fiction, inspiration from those in the industry, everyday style guides, or a little small/big screen entertainment, it can all be found at NYPL.
Get your dose of Fashion Fierceness on Sunday, September 25th at 2 pm when Tyra Banks will be at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building for TeenLIVE. Get the details and RSVP at www.nypl.org/teenlive.
