The official start of New York Fashion Week is a mere two days away, so WWD asked a slew of experts to share their battle strategies. Armed with everything from coconut water to Ray-Bans, these industry insiders are ready to storm Lincoln Center and beyond. Game on.

Tati Cotliar, model

What She’ll Be Wearing: I would love to wear my new Argentinian, masculine and oversize outfits, but they are not appropriate for fashion-show castings, so I’ll be looking around for new stockings and schoolgirl pleated skirts! I already got some schoolboy leather shoes and high heels for castings.

In Her Bag: It won’t be very big, so whatever fits in it…deodorant?

Shows She’ll Walk: We only know the day before, or even worse, we know when we are actually going through the runway!

Most Looking Forward to: Seeing the new collections.

Guilty Pleasure: Sleeping more than two hours.

Thoughts on Lincoln Center: It was time for fashion to take place in an art center. Fashion is also an art. And we’ll be closer to Zabar’s!
