#JCREWNYFW Diary: Jenni, Writer


Our friendship with Jenni (@jenniavins) began a few years ago when the freelance writer and current lifestyle reporter for “Quartz” penned an open letter asking us to bring back her favorite swimsuit. Like a fashion fairy godmother, Jenna granted her wish—and this year she asked her to be in our fall/winter 2017 presentation (no, we didn’t ask her to wear the swimsuit). Here, we followed her through a day of preparing for our show…


2014 FLASHBACK 
“Jenna resurrected my beloved, long-lost tank suit from the ’90s. A fashion miracle!”







FRIDAY, 8AM, LAX –> JFK
“Touchdown in NYC! After 13 years here, I moved to LA just two
months ago.” 







SATURDAY, 8AM, QUARTZ’S NEW YORK HQ
“Saturday morning at the mother ship to send off the newsletter. February Fashion Week seems to always have an opening blizzard.” 


2PM, #JCREWNYFW FITTING
“If only Somsack and Jenna could style me every morning… I ❤️️ this red coat.”  




4PM, EN ROUTE TO A PRESHOW BANG TRIM
“Is it too soon to start getting sentimental about the subway?”







5:30PM, MARIE ROBINSON SALON
“Jessica Gillin gave me my first haircut in the city 13 years ago (when she was in beauty school!), and I haven’t gone to anyone
else since.”





7PM, PIZZA WITH FRIENDS
“Model diet: the white slice at Best Pizza in Williamsburg.”



SUNDAY, 1PM, SHOWTIME! 
“I’m not allowed to walk out in this outfit, right?”
