Volunteering at NYFW is something I’m glad I did, to say I did it. Not at all #glam or scarcely exciting, but simply a barefaced, boringly dressed fly on the wall. You do it once, and that’s enough. The excitement in my opinion is overrated. But having said that, I’m not the one sitting front row of anything extraordinary.
