FAQs for Members of the Press

Q. Who can apply for Press Accreditation to cover Couture Fashion Week?
A. People who either work or freelance for bona fide media outlets can apply. This includes photographers, videographers, editors and bloggers. You must submit examples of your press work (not just photos on your Flickr, Dropbox or Instagram account, for example). Preference is given to members of the press who regularly cover similar events and can show tearsheets of their work.

We especially look for press that have over 5,000 followers on social media.
