Fashion Week is a confounding event that transforms parts of New York into epicenters for The Three F’s: Fashion Folk, Fashion Sightseers, and Fashion Freeloaders.
Fashion Folk would be those in the industry – editors, writers, models, etc.
Fashion Sightseers would be the not-so-new legion of style paparazzi and those that work in the industry but don’t have passes to the shows.
And of course there are the Fashion Freeloaders, those people who have no real purpose at Fashion Week but want to be seen and grab their complimentary copy of Women’s Wear Daily.
As of late though there are some who blur the lines, like Scott Schuman. Who is a Fashion Sightseer that has become a Fashion Folk, popping in to see a show or two between capturing the style masses.
I suppose this season I am a Fashion Sightseer and that being the case, here is a selection of choice images from Fashion Week. A little taste of the style, the madness, and the never ending alternatives to wearing a proper winter coat.
