You can cram 200 fashion shows into a week between uptown and down, but in the end, very few of these shows really matter. Sure, everyone should be able to start a business and flourish, and Lord knows I am an emerging designer-aholic. But what makes New York Fashion Week exciting and gives it that international sizzle, are the designers like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. Why Nicki Minaj was front and center at these elegant shows is more about ploy that plausibility. I guess the old guard needs as much smoke and mirrors as they can get to stay relevant, sadly. Oscar de la Renta is having a fabulous moment with the best show of the week so far. But so good, that I had to stop and pause to share a few looks. Not that you need my two cents. Lord knows there is enough superfluous coverage of fashion week to choke a horse.
