Autumn Event Roundup

September 2019

Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the city has slowed down. In fact,
as the crisp days of fall settle in, there’s a special energy buzzing around the Midtown West
apartments at 555TEN. Living in one of the city’s most bustling neighborhoods means you
can always find something happening nearby. And this time of year, navigating the sheer
volume of local events can be daunting. But don’t fret, we are here to help. Here are some of
the events we’re looking forward to as the leaves begin to change.

It’s no secret that New Yorkers have great style. Fall in the city is an exciting time for
fashionistas, many of whom will be flocking to MODA, one of the world’s premier fashion
trade shows. Bringing designers and retailers together, MODA is a high-end trade show put
on by UBM Fashion that “translates high-end women’s fashion for your customer’s everyday
life.” Besides providing a platform for designers to show their work, MODA also offers a
selection of seminars on relevant topics and issues for fashion industry insiders, such as
sustainability and the power that social media influencers wield on the market. The show
runs from Sept. 15 to 17 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center — just a short walk from
the 555TEN luxury rentals.

If MODA interests you, you might also want to check out FAME. Another highly
anticipated UBM Fashion trade show, the event is aimed at a slightly younger demographic
than MODA. Where MODA presents timeless fashion, FAME is on-trend, showcasing of-
the-moment labels like Elan, which makes high-end, travel-ready clothing for women who
have “mastered the balance between comfort and making a statement.” Think relaxed fits,
chunky sweaters, and maxi dresses that billow in the wind; basically, pieces that are
functional enough to travel in, but still look chic once you arrive. This trade show runs
alongside MODA from Sept. 15 to 17 at the Javits Center.

Anthos Day New York
Let’s switch gears from fashion to technology. If you’ve been on the lookout for ways to
take your business to the next level, consider attending Google’s Anthos Day. At this event,
industry leaders will provide a day of educational talks on using Anthos, a technology that,
according to Google, “lets you build and manage modern hybrid applications, accelerating
your application development and enabling your business with transformational technologies
like service mesh, containers, and microservices.” If that sounds like something you could
use, check out the event on Sept. 16 at Center415.

Bard in the Park
The autumn chill is just around the corner, but there are still a few warm days left for some
satisfying outdoor fun, particularly in the form of a theatrical performance. On Sept. 13 at 7
p.m., Hudson River Park’s Bard in the Park has one final performance on tap, and it’s a
good one: Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Song.” A Shakespeare play is almost always
stirring, but add the unique open-air setting at Clinton Cove, and you really have something special. You may need to bring a sweater, sure, but attending one last outdoor performance
is an ideal way to mark the end of summer.
