Brooks Nader (BFA)

After doing a little runway modeling herself during Sports Illustrated Swimsuit‘s show from PARAISO Miami Beach in July, Brooks Nader took in the scene from the front row during the Spring/Summer 2023 New York Fashion Week season.

The Baton Rouge-born, New York-based beauty attended multiple runway shows and some of the chicest fashion fêtes of the season. If you happen to be one of her 1 million Instagram followers, well, you’re in for a treat because Nader is giving GRAZIA USA an inside peek at what really went down during NYFW. The model takes us to Aknvas and Cynthia Rowley, and shares plenty of moments of glam in-between. Check out Nader’s NYFW photo diary, below.

“My friend Christian (Juul Nielsen) who’s the brilliant creative director of Hervé Léger started the brand Aknvas recently and it’s EVERYTHING! The pieces are incredible, I wore the green pants from his collection. This color is the color for fall.”

“Attended Ronny Kobo’s dinner at Casa Cipriani. It was so classic New York and a night to remember! I’ve always been a fan of her collection. After Ronny Kobo’s, Devon [Windsor] and I headed to Zero Bond for Steph Shepherd and Simon Huck’s launch party for Stephanie Fragrance with SNIF!”
