Free, open-to-the-public NYFW events

Models, stylists, designers, photographers and bloggers will take the city by style storm come Feb. 9.

As the new fall/winter collections hit runways, fashionistas without a front row seat can still take part in the NYFW festivities at parties, events and more.

Here's where to get in on the action, with or without an invitation.

Manhattan's The Gregory Hotel is hosting a pop-up for environmentally conscious fashionistas. Head to the event to see and purchase looks from Caravan*Tabii, a collaboration between Tabitha St. Bernard and Claudine De Sola, of Caravan Stylist Studio. Attendees can choose from a selection of zero-waste fabrics and then watch their garments get created on the spot. Dresses go for $250 each.

There's no need to leave your apartment to get your NYFW fix. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, NYFW Live will be streaming the top designer shows, so anyone with a computer can be one of the first to spot the latest trends. Just head to the website when your favorite brand's collection is premiering, and enjoy the show.
