A New York Minute

A New York Minute. Defined as “the interval between a Manhattan traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn” – Johnny Carson.
I can now say, with absolute certainty, I know exactly what a ‘New York minute’ is, and Carson couldn’t of put it any better (I’m pretty sure people honk their
horns just for the sake of feeling included there). Recently I was approached by the lovely Jordana, the founder of The NYLON Project, a concept aiming to
use fashion and influence to raise awareness for homelessness in big cities. She asked if I would like to be featured in her upcoming book, #ItCanBeYou, and it
was an opportunity I simply couldn’t refuse.

A few days later, we were on a Norwegian Airways flight (they’re the future) at 6.45am, we landed directly into the whirlwind of chaos that is New York Fashion
Week and left feeling robbed of the collagen I lost from sleep deprivation. After 26 hours without sleep, 1 photoshoot (in the middle of the 26-hour-no-sleep-stint),
2 fashion shows, 1 brunch, 1 museum visit, 1 boat trip and a fine dining experience in Time Square, my New York minute had flashed by my eyes quicker than you
could say Lady Liberty. It was a culture inhaling opportunity, a must-see squeeze in and the most exciting trip of my career so far. It was definitely one to remember.
