In the world of style, New York Fashion Week is essentially the Olympics. Editors and influencers power walk (in heels, no less) from show to show, designers scramble with last-minute details and models pray that they won’t fall off the runway. But when Rebecca Minkoff notices the stress of NYFW creeping in, she nips it in the bud with a refreshingly simple (and free) trick.
When we spoke with the 38-year-old fashion maven backstage at the preview of her fall/winter 2019 capsule collection, which she debuted in collaboration with Stitch Fix, we were eager for her stress-related life-hacks.
As Minkoff explained, she doesn’t meditate or book a luxurious massage when she’s feeling overwhelmed. Instead, she gets some fresh air.
“I take a walk and I don’t have my phone with me. I look at people, I smile at them, I look at buildings and the sky,” she explained.
