Fashion Week Handbook

There's no way for one person to inhale all the fashion week festivities. Part of your duty is to keep you posted on the world of fashion and style. Below is a concise resource guide of where to go online--to take it all in --without even leaving your desk:

  • Racked is blogging live from the shows. It's like sending your best friend and drooling over their access. Details include: time stamps, so you can figure out how late the designers are running off schedule and updates on sag lines.


  • Cheryl Shops is running a concise roundup off many shows, including this jewel of information on the Barbie 50th Anniversary Runway Show:

    "...the Barbie show was a complete and utter shitstorm. The going theory is that every invitee could bring a guest--ideally, a little girl who could sit on your lap, but in reality, everything from your three-year-old niece to your 16-year-old cousin to your roommate to Bob from accounting. Therefore, there were way too many people at the show, hundreds of whom, despite being confirmed, didn't even make it in. Reportedly, there were lots of crying little girls and lots of pissed-off journalists.
    "


  • Looking for fashion pictures? Style.com and NYMag.com never miss a look.


  • To find out where is where you need to go to Patrick McMullan's site. This is a serious resource when you're trying to remember the name of person you spoke to for an hour but can't remember because you already had four cocktails.


  • Don't worry, we'll be there too but we also have shopping to do and sales to spy out.
