Milk Studios is the downtown center of New York fashion week, and it is where a bevy of high-profile up-and-coming designers show off their latest collections. With so much activity, you are bound to spot at least a few models. 450 W. 15th St.; milkstudios.com

It's likely that you'll see models on the E, C and 1 subway lines (the trains that get you to Chelsea and Lincoln Center, where most of fashion week's shows take place) in the lead-up and during fashion week. Keep your eyes peeled for models heading to go-sees, fittings and even in between shows.

Situated right across the street from Milk Studios, Chelsea Market's variety of food options often lures models when they're not strutting the runways (yes even models have to eat). The best part is that while you're hanging around you too can indulge in some yummy treats and make the most of the free Wi-Fi. 75 Ninth Ave; chelseamarket.com

Despite early call times and extremely hectic schedules models are still out and about into the wee hours during fashion week. One of the best spots to see some of the most beautiful women in the world with drinks in their hands is at Top of the Standard at the Standard Hotel. The bar is a favorite of top catwalker Karlie Kloss, even though she has yet to turn 21. 848 Washington St.; standardhotels.com

As fashion week moves along, the late nights and early start times leave the fashion pack in serious need of a caffeine fix. It may not be the most glamorous place on earth, but the Starbucks directly across the street from the Lincoln Center fashion week tents becomes a top spot to scour for models. 1889 Broadway (between 62nd and 63rd streets); starbucks.com

Alexander Wang is a magnet for top models (last season everyone from Gisele Bundchen to Shalom Harlow walked in his show). Hang out around Pier 94, the location of Wang's runway extravaganza on September 8th, and you are destined to see top catwalkers. 711 12th Avenue.

The club that used to be known as Bungalow 8 (renowned for being one of the toughest doors to walk through in the early naughts) has recently re-opened it's doors as the more sleek No. 8 and the spot is sure to be one of the hottest model hangouts this New York fashion week. 357 W. 16th St.; no8ny.com
