Secrets of the Jet Set: 10 Up-and-Coming American Designers Reveal Their Travel Tips
For fashion and accessory designers today, factories--and inspiration--are often found abroad. So it goes without saying that the 10 newest members of the CFDA Fashion Incubator, which is sponsored by W Hotels, are seasoned travelers. This summer, the new new class of designers went to Mexico for a short trip to get to know each other and learn what was in store for them over the next two years of the program (surprise--in addition to studio space and mentors, they will also get to travel!). In between cocktails and surfing lessons, the designers took a break to share everything from what's always in their carry-on bags to the pieces they'd never ever wear on a plane.
