Day One: Thursday, Sept. 8


My caffeine intake typically doubles to make it through fashion week. The primary stop of the morning—a celebration to have fun the launch of Dior’s recent J’adore scent—was unrelated to the day’s shows, but fueled me up for running around the town with a really chic gold latte nonetheless.—Margaux Anbouba, Beauty Editor

saks caviar


Saks was handing out bumps at its annual NYFW party co-hosted by ChloĂ« Bailey—of caviar, that’s. (You’ve to maintain it classy.) Pair that creative app with its signature drink, the L’Avenue Cosmopolitan, and sightings of James Charles and James Harden, and also you’ve got an ideal begin to the chaos that’s fashion week.—Madison Rexroat, Fashion and Accessories Assistant

lu chen luchen new york fashion week


My first show of the season was emerging designer Lu Chen, whose collection of surreal gowns and pretty rattling perfect utilitarian skirts juxtaposed splendidly with its setting, right in the guts of Flatiron. Bringing fashion to the streets has a complete recent meaning!—Kevin LeBlanc, Fashion Associate

lionne proposal


I’m not gonna lie, I cried my eyes out last night on the Lionne show, when designer Latoia Fitzgerald’s boyfriend, pro basketball player Rajon Rondo, proposed to her RIGHT in front of me at the top of the show. A very unforgettable moment.—Jade Vallario, Market Editor

My primary thought once I arrived at Opening Ceremony’s twentieth anniversary party: What yr is it? Held at Schimanski, an industrial warehouse-slash-night club in Brooklyn, the celebration of OC20 felt like a time warp to the early 2000s, when indie sleaze was at its peak. Fittingly, Cobrasnake, the unofficial documenter of Y2K nightlife, was in attendance taking photos. Bowen Yang and Ilana Glazer got in on the motion, too.—Claire Stern, Digital Deputy Editor

Dancing at Acme with The Attico was the best possible technique to end the night (and get those steps in).—Sarah Zendejas, Senior Fashion Market Editor

I barreled through a crowd of tourists on thirty fourth Street last night attempting to make it to the Fendi show on time, when suddenly everyone on the sidewalk stopped walking forward and starting stepping backward. Men in black suits were yelling while a black SUV with tinted windows pulled up, holding none aside from Kim Kardashian (in Fendi couture, naturally). I nearly broke my ankle for the shot, nevertheless it was price it.—Jade Vallario, Market Editor

collina strada hair

Margaux Anbouba

I really like going backstage at Collina Strada because designer Hillary Taymour knows the ability of beauty. Working example: She tapped Bella Hadid’s hairstylist, Evanie Frausto, to create 10-foot braids for lots of models. Every one was hand-painted with an Aztec clay face mask (yes, the Amazon bestseller). The result was horse girl-y and something you’d see on Goop.—Margaux Anbouba, Beauty Editor

Hal Baddie

Quick doll check-in! Here we’re practicing our greatest NYFW behavior with Devin Halbal, aka HalBaddie, at Kate Spade’s spring/summer 2023 presentation. Classic selfie? A baddie but a goodie.—Madison Rexroat, Fashion and Accessories Assistant


Kevin LeBlanc

Terrence Zhou of Bad Binch TongTong gave us a performance as an alternative of a runway. Dancers flittered and floated in his sculptural, body-defying pieces which can be (literally) made to maneuver. These two dancing sunbursts made out of what looks like pool floaties encapsulate his silly yet sensual ethos.—Kevin LeBlanc, Fashion Associate

simon miller

Rosie Jarman

Friday was impossibly fresh, from real grass at Kate Spade to food sculptures at Simon Miller (pictured above) together with a J.Law sighting (in shiny green shoes!), and a bedazzled broccoli bag at Collina Strada. Apparently it’s all about getting your greens this season.—Rosie Jarman, Assistant Fashion Editor

harwell godfrey necklace


Harwell Godfrey and De Beers Group’s cocktail party at Temple Bar was so chic and intimate that I straight up forgot I used to be going to the Fendi show. I mean, just take a look at this Charity Heart pendant featuring an ethically sourced natural diamond from De Beers. A hundred percent of proceeds support Everytown for Gun Safety; designer Lauren Harwell Godfrey told me she’s already raised $250,000 and hopes to get to 1,000,000. Cheers to that.—Claire Stern, Digital Deputy Editor
