Fashion Week Journal for Thursday February 12
Color of the day: White—but, thankfully, just the threat of it. New York Fashion Week Day 1 began with predictions of snowfall, and the huddled conversations outside every show were of the “Here we go again order,” but the resigned tone referred to the weather, not the week’s schedule.
But yesterday ended with dry sidewalks, though, so, the score thus far:
THE ELEMENTS: 0, NYFW: 1
Editors, bloggers, actors, models—the front row at Fashion Week always turns up a bevy of familiar faces. We found some of our favorites at a few of the season’s top shows.

It was a cold, windy Saturday in New York City. The snow finally stopped falling, but the drifts caused by plows made navigating the streets treacherous, especially for stiletto-wearing fashionistas!
I ventured away from Lincoln Center today for some of the uber-hip shows, like Band of Outsiders and Alexander Wang, and was rewarded with a veritable who’s who list of the industry’s elite. From Joanna Hillman to Leandra Medine, everyone braved the wind and snow for a glimpse at next year’s fashion.
Somehow, the crowds and traffic and hectic show schedule only make Fashion Week more fun. It’s so inspiring to be here, right in the middle of the craziness, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Well, maybe less snow, but we can’t have it all.
