Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow (September 5), and we couldn’t be more excited!
However, to survive seven days of running from show to show, lingering backstage for interviews, and being on our feet all day; there are a few necessities any editor, designer or show-goer needs on hand to stay looking polished and refreshed during one of the busiest events of the year.

Pick your poison with Après Beach for texture and wave, Imperméable for fighting frizz, Dry Texturizing Spray to texturize and stomp oil, or keep your style in check with Superfine. Spritz as needed to update your ‘do, or to restore the signature Oribe scent to your strands.
Dr. Scholl's Fast Flats, $12.99: You can try to last all day in your four-inch heels, but it’s important to have a backup just in case your feet surrender. These comfy flats will fold right into a small pouch and conveniently fit into most handbags. After a long day, your feet will love these.
