The Tents: New York Fashion Week, Parte Un

New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 Charlotte Ronson

As you enter Lincoln Center on your way to New York Fashion Week, the first sign that greets you demands that you have an invitation to enter. The second sign (below the first) explains that by entering The Tents, you agree to allow anyone to take a photograph of you. These two notices exactly describe the people and the attitude you’ll find inside.

Designers, models, journalists, bloggers and rovers there for the free Kim Crawford wine in plastic stemless glasses meander around the lobby. Between glancing at their free copies of New York Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily and T Magazine and posing for photos, they’re kept busy until the next show begins (or they tire of the scene and leave).

Tickets are given to individual shows, so store buyers and the press attend the vast majority, while people like me and my friend Adryan (of the fashionable La Bird Boheme) scored tickets for one show. We stayed for two laps around The Tents stalking men in feathered hats before high-tailing it to a bar. Tres chic, I know.

Without further adieu, I give you a preview of the Fall 2011 collection from Charlotte Ronson. (Keep your eyes on the spectators. It’ll pay off, I promise.)
