BTS at NYFW

Feb 13, 2020

New York City’s dedicated fashionistas braced the cold from February 6th to 13th to preview the upcoming spring season’s hottest styles and trends. As an official caterer of New York Fashion Week, Mangia has worked with powerhouse fashion labels like Badgley Mischka, Christopher John Roberts, The Blonds, Libertine, Christian Cowan, and Sukeina. Amid all the fun and fabulous backstage excitement, we heard a few interesting tidbits from some fashion industry foodies.

  1. Favorite Food Trends
    Fashion’s finest stay trendy on and off the runway with some of this year’s buzziest foods. Cauliflower is a major favorite, which can be used as a gluten-free alternative in recipes from pizza crust to gnocchi. Non-dairy milks are also increasingly popular, with many models declaring their love for oat milk as a dairy alternative that is less likely to cause bloating. Collagen powder is also in vogue as a super supplement to add to smoothies or tea for an extra boost that keeps skin fresh and glowing.

  2. Go-To Natural Cold Remedies
    There’s no time for the flu during Fashion Week! To ward off viruses during cold and flu season, lots of busy fashionistas turn to bone broth to up their collagen intake. It not only strengthens the immune system, but also promotes healthy skin and hair.

  3. Power Snacks
    Spring fashion previews don’t end on the 13th. The entire month of February is full of global runway shows and industry events, with New York Fashion Week immediately followed by London, Milan, and Paris. To get through the chaos of international travel and packed schedules, runway beauties make sure to stay hydrated and choose healthy snacks when they need some extra energy. Some favorites are raw veggies with hummus or avocado sprinkled with sea salt, paprika, and lemon juice. For an extra dose of natural caffeine, fashion stars opt for Matcha green tea instead of coffee or carbonated drinks.
