Although Fashion Week is mostly an invite-only, media and fashion insider affair, check out a clever feature that we just happened to write on SheKnows.com for tips on "5 Free ways to enjoy Fashion Week."

Here's a snippet:

Crash the party


You didn’t hear this from us. (Well, actually you did.) But it’s not that difficult to crash the tents (the nickname derived from the structure that housed Fashion Week when it was at Bryant Park and where attendees see shows during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week). While you have to be invited to actually attend a designer’s show or presentation, just making it inside is an experience unto itself. To crash with confidence, familiarize yourself with the Fashion Week schedule and show up with a particular show in mind.

For example, if Rebecca Minkoff’s show is at 2 p.m., arrive around 1:30 p.m. wearing your fashion editrix best (stylish but not too flashy), sashay up the steps and without a tremble in your voice tell security you’re on the list for that show. Most guests will flash fancy embossed invitations or email printouts, but there is also a line inside where invited guests can check in. Once you’re in, you can watch the runway shows on large video monitors as they happen, sip on free water and coffee drinks (sometimes there's a wine sponsor, too) and stock up on free magazines. Who knows? You might even spot a famous designer, top model or celebrity!
