Everyone wants a peek behind the curtains at New York Fashion Week. The little mysteries of how everything comes together are as interesting, and sometimes more, than what’s on the runways.
There’s one question that doesn’t get asked much though because the joke, of course, is that models don’t eat. Well, not only do they eat, but their plates are just as of-the-moment as the clothes they’re showing off.
Dig Inn, which made farm-to-table fast casual, is serving up breakfasts and lunches backstage at NYFW for designers including Diane Von Furstenburg, Prabal Gurung and Gabriela Hearst.
Clean eating that doesn’t leave models fainting on the runway is the name of the game, and late summer has plenty of flavors to keep things interesting. Dig Inn shared this super fresh, spicy-sweet recipe using our favorite summer fruit, watermelon, which has tons of vitamins A and C, citrulline to replenish muscles and more lycopene, an antioxidant shown to be especially beneficial to men’s health, than a tomato.
We’ll resist the obvious pun and just tell you to try it for yourself.
