Rise NYFW prides itself on quality, experience, and memory. Therefore, we are looking for the best press/media and fashion bloggers in the world. We want everyone to be talking about our shows for years to come and it all starts with our media partners.


Fashion Week Press + Media registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions. Editorial media includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, videographers, etc. who are attending specifically to write about and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.


Rise NYFW press pass provides complimentary access to our event for an entire day. Our shows are “attendee first” events which means your press pass allows you access as long as space is available.


Your press pass DOES NOT allow:

  • Early or special access to the event

  • Guaranteed seating at panels and special events

  • The ability to cut lines

Any additional access, under certain situations, must be arranged with Rise NYFW.


Submitting a press application does not guarantee approval. Our team will review all press applications and we will notify you of approval or denial. If approved, additional information will be provided via confirmation email and receipt. Each individual applying for a Rise NYFW press pass may only apply once.

Q. Who can apply for Press Accreditation?
A. People who work or freelance for bona fide media outlets can apply. This includes photographers, videographers, editors, and bloggers. Preference is given to members of the press who regularly cover similar events and can show tearsheets of their work. Portrait, wedding, and portfolio photographers are not considered to be press unless they have been assigned to shoot for a bona fide media outlet. We especially look for press that has over 5,000 followers on social media.

Q. Is there an application fee?
A. No.

Q. What is the criteria to be approved?
A. Minimum 5,000 followers or subscribers on social media, valid website and/or social media URLs, coverage of fashion, entertainment, lifestyle, or related topics.

Q. Do you cover travel expenses for members of the press?
A. No.

Q. When can I expect to receive my press pass?
A. Approved press must register after receiving an email invitation. The email invitations are usually sent starting 30 days before the event.

Q. Can I attend if my media credentials are not active?
A. No, but you are welcome to buy tickets.

Q. What are the rules for using the content I shoot at your events?
A. Video under 5 minutes and photos can be used for editorial purposes. Please contact us for information on rates and conditions for commercial and advertising usage.


Rise NYFW press passes are issued individually. If you’re applying with a team, each person on your team is required to apply and be approved separately. All press passes are non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individual caught selling their press pass will be disqualified from attending all future Rise NYFW events.


Rise NYFW reserves the right to approve or deny any application. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Please provide accurate information in your application so that Rise NYFW can make an informed decision, as you will not be able to submit further information later if your application is not approved.
