Fashion Week Spas to Visit in New York
It happens twice yearly and every second is über-exciting…not to mention über-chic. It’s New York Fashion Week, of course. And whether you’re strutting your stuff on the runway, working backstage, blogging about the latest looks or simply following your fave designers on social media, the week is not only exciting and chic, but hectic. Late-night parties. After-party late-night parties. Shows to attend. A wardrobe to assemble. Makeup tutorials to try. Phew! All we can say is that when the fashion gets going, the going gets spa-ing. Because spa is always in fashion especially these recommended fashion week spas.
Prep pre-NYFW or relax post-shows at these New York Fashion Week Spas.
La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park
You might think it’s hard to find serenity in an urban environment like Manhattan, but we promise it’s not. La Prairie promises that, too. Strut your fab self during Fashion Week by booking La Prairie Spa’s bespoke Caviar Firming Facial or White Caviar Illuminating Facial. (Offered in 60- or 90-minute intervals, they both combine Swiss skincare and results-oriented science synonymous with the La Prairie brand.) Because who doesn’t want firmer, brighter, more even skin before a big crowd?
Or, if your tired tootsies need relief after toting around all the shows, book the 30-minute Scalp and Foot Therapy and have two therapists work on you simultaneously.
Dyanna Body and Waxing Center
Beauty maintenance necessary? Book a day at Dyanna Spa and you’re set. Though waxing is the spa’s claim to fame (it uses a special azulejo wax formula and a separate Cirepil Blue hard wax for sensitive skin types), the menu includes OPI No Chip Gel manicures—and 24K-gold facials. You’ll feel model-worthy in no time.
Sacred Sounds Yoga
Need to find balance throughout the busy week (or want to reboot once it’s over)? Head to Sacred Sounds Yoga in the Village. Part yoga studio, part meditation studio, Sacred showcases myriad yoga options—aerial, heated, non-heated, candlelit, etc.—to get back in a more balanced flow. And convenient hours make attending class super-accessible. A sister location resides in Brooklyn.
Cornelia Spa at The Surrey
At Cornelia Spa, a muted color palette (and the subtle Cornelia orange touches) complements a hushed tone. The boutique spa is intimate, soothing and the perfect haven to recover from your Fashion Week schedule. Each treatment is custom tailored to you, so whatever you choose (say, the Reparative Caviar & Oxygen Quench?), you’ll feel detoxed and rejuvenated.
