Mara Hoffman's collection will show on Saturday, and while we're champing at the bit to see the prints and patterns (inspired by references from South America with a focus on vibrant colors) that will go down the runway, first we have a look at what gets Mara through a beyond-busy day.

From her favorite necklace that's become her good luck charm to the sustenance that keeps her going (green juice and chocolate? Yes please!), click through the selects to see Mara's Fashion Week essentials, as told by the designer herself. And be sure to tune into the Fashion Week live stream Saturday at 2pm to see the show!
