FROW & Tell: Blogger Hanneli Mustaparta & DJ Leigh Lezark Talk New York Fashion Week

10 September 2013 by

Dashing from show, sometimes its hard to catch up with our favourite ladies of style, so we were delighted to bump into the gorgeous blogger Hanneli Mustaparta and Misshapes DJ Leigh Lezark at yesterday’s Lacoste show. Even though both girls were feeling the effects of the non-stop after-party circuit that NYFW is famed for, they looked sharp for the FROW. We caught up with the twosome to hear how they were faring at this season’s fashion week.

GraziaDaily: We’re backstage at Lacoste, what were your favourite looks from the show?

Hanneli Mustaparta: I liked a lot of things from the collection. One of the things that stood out was the white tennis skirt with the matching jacket with the green detailing and I like all the big floating coats.

Leigh Lezark: I really loved the floaty white sheer pieces, they were beautiful.

GraziaDaily: What does your NYFW schedule look like?

Hanneli Mustaparta: I’m going to a few shows, but I’m being a little selective which feels really good. I have  a lot of work on the side. I’m working with Calvin Klein and Im going to be working with Franscico [Costa] in the studio while he’s finishing up his collection.

Leigh Lezark: I’m doing a lot of runway show music and after-parties. I’m doing runway music for Zac Posen, Rachel Zoe, Emerson, Noon by Noor, I hope I haven’t forgotten anybody! Then there’s the Another Magazine and Jeremy Scott party, so many parties. I was at, like, six parties last night. I was in Mexico city the night before and then landed and kept going and did not stop, oh my God!

GraziaDaily: What is your top tip for surviving NYFW?

Hanneli Mustaparta: I think its important to start the day with a proper breakfast. If you don’t do that, you’re screwed for the rest of the day.

Leigh Lezark: I think you should start the day with a strong coffee. And an uber car account is what really gets you though. Kiehls skin rescuer is also a massive help! 

Good luck ladies! Have a happy NYFW!
