New York Fashion Week gets underway later this week, inaugurating a month of hard work for runway models venturing from New York to Paris and London and Milan. Fortunately, Labor Day weekend offers a bit of a respite, a three-day weekend of traveling, beaching with friends, and time to catch up on reading before fashion month descends. Bella Hadid went to Beijing, China, to celebrate her Bulgari ambassadorship; He Cong, who broke out as a model for Rihanna’s Fenty Puma line, made her way to Storm King Art Center for an early fall visit; and Adwoa Aboah made an impact with a Gurl Talk panel in Berlin, Germany. Others stuck around New York, where the streets emptied out for the weekend and models had plenty of space to roam and frolic. See all the varied and enviable ways models are making the most of their last days of freedom before the Spring 2018 shows get going in earnest, here.
