The 3 New Breeds of Fashion Week Attendees

Written by emilyc

Ever since Fashion Week became the new Times Square, the attendees have transitioned from a tasteful and privileged select few, to throngs of try-hards who are one hashtag away from a circus sideshow. Let’s just say it’s less Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and more Kia Fashion Week. Three new breeds of people emerged at New York Fashion Week this time around. They are The Nakeds, The Animals, and The Voguers. Allow me to introduce them.

The Nakeds:

Prabal Gurung - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Exhibit A: The Medieval streaker at Prabal Gurung.


Exhibit B: Michelle Harper, who not only forgot to eat in the last year, but also to put on a top.

The Animals:

Exhibit A: Panda outside Altuzzarra. Street style has become so overdone and such a competition, that being a mere human is so 2013. Haven’t you heard? Animals – especially of the bear species – are the look du jour!

Exhibit B: Bryan Boy (Mr. Street Style himself) wearing head-to-toe teddy bear at Alex Wang.

Exhibit C: June Ambrose in an abstract interpretation of bear, with a hint of bathrobe.

The Voguers:

Exhibit A: Hood By Air Voguers. No, not Voguers as in Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles, et al. Voguers as in hair-whipping, shade-throwing, tea-spilling, fierce dancers from an underground vogue team, which, apparently, is a real thing.
