SHOOT ’EM UP: Believe it or not, there are other ways to survive New York Fashion Week than downing 12 carafes of espresso. Or so says Dr. Oz Garcia, nutritionist to the likes of Donna Karan, Vivienne Tam and Karolina Kurkova. This season, Garcia will bring his new Arizona Rx Energy Fast Shots to the tents for editors and retailers in need of a pick-me-up. The size of minibar bottles, the drinks contain green tea and vitamins and minerals including B12, ginkgo biloba and taurine, which also is found in Red Bull. But Garcia said his shots are better for the body. “I think Red Bull has seen its day,” he said. “It’s the same old thing. This gives you nutrients and supplements that are good for your brain, so you think better, you have focus and energy.” And once the day is through, Garcia has a solution for that, too — and it’s not 12 carafes of Champagne. His P.M. Relax shot contains soothing chamomile, and he said: “It actually helps soothe and repair the human brain. You can’t say that about whiskey.”
Garcia also will be participating in Fashion’s Night Out, giving health advice and auctioning off a six-month consultation at the Vera Wang Bridal Boutique.
