When fashion weeks kick off, this means the leggy and well-dressed models will be descending upon style cities. It can be an intense time for the women who do the runway circuit. Between the scrambling around backstage, hairstyling and makeup sessions, there is also a lot of downtime. Though Fashion Week’s emphasis is becoming less about the ladies sashaying down the runway and more about who’s sitting in the front row, we decided to dig through the models of the industry. Rather than talking clothes, we are going to discuss how models stay fit, eat well, sleep well and work well during fashion weeks!
Below are some of the models stylish tactics to avoid getting the bug..
Models dutifully get their flu shots. Just in time before fashion weeks.. They up their immunity and avoid sickness especially from hopping on and off so many planes!
Others follow variations of what could be called the standard fashion-world starvation diet, whether it’s drinking large quantities of SmartWater fortified with packets of the vitamin supplement Emergen-C, or force-feeding themselves nothing but raw greens. Maintaining a healthy gut and avoiding weakness of the body by eliminating toxins..
Then there are the juicers. When in New York, models swear by Juice Press, the three-year-old Manhattan chain popular with fashion insiders for its 17-ounce $10 bottles of cold-pressed fruits and vegetables.
The true key to health, fashion veterans say, is to avoid the late-night partying fashion weeks are known for. They just make sure to say ‘No, thank you,’ to the tempting myriad cocktail parties and openings and ‘No’ to the nightcaps. Most of the time models don’t drink at night events. Fashion Week parties are not for people who work in fashion. Models just can’t go to the V party and the Purple party and the Elle party, and hang out all night with the Misshapes and still be on top of their game.
