10 things my BFF learnt @ NY Fashion Week

1. Strippers are the new new thing. From go go girls at Rag & Bone‘s after party to casino hostesses at Karen Walker, topless dancers haven’t been this big since Striptease. 
2. If you are under 21, you can still DJ an over-21 party. Thanks for the lesson in NY State law, Tavi.
3. Celebrity bloggers are becoming real celebrities. Rumi Neely and Jane Aldridge are reportedly in talks to become Chanel ambassadors. Take that, haters. Bloggers are the new socialites. 
4. Ally Hilfiger (Tommy's daughter)is for real. Her collection, Nahm, was well-received. 
5. Patricia Field's Raunchy Ball was the BEST (we ♥ disco). Actually Patricia is the best!
6. Mac & Milk is cool, but so is showing off site. Especially when even the most important buyers aren’t being let into the building due to overcrowding. 
7. Who Knew Heart Truth would spawn a trend? We love the red dresses that were EVERYWHERE this season. 
8. Those blond girls? They’re the Clarins sisters.
9.You gotta have a gimmick. At least when it comes to runway theatricals. (See Band of Outsiders, Jen Kao, and Elise Øverland for examples.)
10. Trend Colour - RED (btw can't wait for the movie RED RIDING HOOD)
