There’s been a lot of fashion trotting around the streets of New York City the last week, kicking off what will be the next month of fashion shows around the world. It’s one of the city’s most consuming weeks, whether you’re in the trenches yourself or simply caught up in the peripheral whirlwind. New York Fashion Week is difficult to ignore. Making the comedown less difficult are offerings from some of the city’s most excellent juice shops. We’ve compiled a bespoke guide, custom-tailored to take care of all your fashionable woes.
“Green Light” from Juice Press
Fashion Week is where inflated egos take center stage—and, you know, a lot of times for good reason. It takes a massive amount of work to put on a runway show for all parties involved—from the designers, to the models, to the editors cabbing frantically from show to show. But when the dust settles, it’s a good idea to get grounded, lest you start believing that a street style photographer should be with you at all times. So put those Prada-sporting feet straight on the ground and have a glass of Juice Press’s “Green Light,” complete with spinach, kale, vanilla, banana, date, maple, and water. It will cure what ails you—even a little bit of well-deserved seasonal self-importance.

“Hangover Killer Juice” from The Butcher’s Daughter
If you don’t have a hangover after NYFW, you are either of an enviable age or are built like an indestructible tank. If you are, like this writer, a mere mortal, you would be wise to order the “Hangover Killer Juice” from The Butcher’s Daughter. The recipe is a zesty combination of coconut, pineapple, yuzu, chili, evening primrose oil, and cilantro. Better for you than the so-called “hair of the dog,” and tastier too. Get one to go before you hop on the next plane to London for the next round.

“The Alkalizer” from Juice Generation
If you’re in the business, chances are you haven’t been eating (or drinking) the most healthful over the last seven+ days. Between client dinners, canapés, and endless buckets of party champagne, you might not be feeling tiptop. Start anew with Juice Generation‘s “The Alkalizer.” It’s a healthful blend of filtered water, chlorophyll, aloe vera, lemon, and ionic minerals designed “to help you achieve balance and optimal body function.”

“Killer XX” from Liquiteria
You know the feeling: You’ve been running on all cylinders for days on end, marveling at your superhuman powers. You don’t need to eat! Sleeping is for wimps! You can have it all! Do it all! Be it all! Until the moment you’re at rest, and your body shudders to a halt, putting you out for just as many days as you’ve burned through. While we wholeheartedly commend shooting through the city like a falling asteroid through the cosmos, we always recommend finding the softest possible place to land. Help yourself with Liquiteria’s “Killer XX,” made with a spicy blend of apple, ginger, lemon, and cayenne.

“Watermint” from Agavi Organic Juice Bar
Even if you weren’t surviving Fashion Week, you were certainly surviving the usual summer heat. Make up for that lost water with a simple glass of “Watermint” at Agavi Organic Juice Bar. This one isn’t complicated or fancy; it’s just a blend of watermelon and mint. Turns out you don’t need more than two ingredients to get this detox thing done.
72 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003
“Re-build Shake ” from Joe and the Juice
After a long, trying week, sometimes all you want to do is tuck into something comforting (usually a piece of chocolate cake does the trick, we don’t know about you). Perhaps set the bar high for the next month and forge a better-for-you path. Grab a “Re-Build Shake” at Joe and the Juice. It’s a hearty, satisfying mix of protein, avocado, banana, and chocolate almond milk. Because everyone deserves a treat now and again—even you, darling, especially you.
