Why I Hate Fashion Week
Like the swans returning to Capistrano or all your friends jumping off a bridge, it’s that annual ritual where a million fashion students parade around in public wearing all of their thrift store accessories at once. It’s New York Fashion Week, and it’s driving me a little bit crazy. That’s because Fashion Week is stupid.
I don’t believe the fashion industry is stupid. I thank it every morning when I put the clothes on my back, no matter if they’re real designer threads or some knockoff I got at Top Shop. But the growing idea that Fashion Week is a spectator sport that should be open to everyone with an Instagram account and a subscription to Vogue is baffling to me. Fashion Week is for fashion people, and that’s the way it should be. Unless you work for a department store, retail boutique, fashion magazine, or stylist, you have no business being in the front row.

    Though slightly jaded and thick with an air of superiority Vice makes a valid point. They’re selling you an illusion.....
