"Waking up in our hotel, with this breathtaking view of a sun-soaked NYC. What a great way to start NYFW!"

We know what New York Fashion Week's all about, right? We've been keeping you updated with all the incredible street style images so far this year, who's wearing what on the front row and which parties have the coolest A-list guests. But what is it actually like for a true fashion insider? From how it is jumping from one show to the other, what it's like on the front row, and what you eat during fashion's biggest week, there are plenty of other aspects we don't always get to see when looking at a celeb or street style star. 

However, über-blogger Sofie Valkiers of Fashionata has given us a rundown of her full diary from NYFW, including what it was like seeing the Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid collection in the flesh, what she did on her time off, and the most exciting celebs she spotted on the front row of Victoria Beckham's show. (Spoiler: You won't want to skip that picture.) Click through our gallery of Sofie Valkier's New York Fashion Week diary.
