In between shows at the tents I met a really sweet girl who was handing out The Daily and started talking to her about her experience handing out the magazine during fashion week. For those of you who don't know, thousands of people flood the tents each year and girls stand outside them handing out this magazine to everyone who passes through.
I come to find out, she was handing out The Daily to help a friend, but is launching her own line of handbags that are launching in Forever 21, Strawberry, Rainbow and Claires this March. Her name is Aurija Petraityte, originally from Lithuania, studied at FIT and is about to have her a fashion show in NYC this Wednesday.
"My line is for the every day girl so I want the everyday girl to be able to attend my show," Petaityte remarked. "There are always so many people standing outside of the tents taking photos of people going in and out who wish they could be part of fashion week, and I'm giving them that opportunity."
