Finding your passion—and turning it into money—is tricky for anyone, but especially for women. The persistent gender wage gap, the lack of top female executives, and the dearth of mentorship present unique challenges. Luckily, our friends at Levo League give young women the tools and resources they need to navigate the workplace and to feel empowered and challenged in their careers. Check out their site for tips, tricks, and generally pretty wonderful advice about how to get the job you deserve.

This Thursday, New York Fashion Week kicks off, giving us a glimpse into what crazy trends we can expect to see in the Spring. The Fall 2015 show gave us partially wet hair and a re-emergance of culottes, so who’s knows what’s in store for us. And since NYFW has a new logo and a new location (no more Lincoln Center), where expecting the Spring 2016 show to be like nothing we’ve ever seen before. If you can’t get a front-row seat yourself, these power women will show you everything you need to know, via Instagram.

Click through to see who you should be following during NYFW.
