Elle Fashion Next - New Designers Play the Game
New York Fashion Week. The cool kid's table in the cafeteria. It's an impeccably dressed party of overly caffeinated and mostly jaded insiders, sinking their dripping fangs into the decorated entrees designers have cooked up for the next season.
Sounds thrilling right? Well don't shove your heels into your monogrammed Louis bags just yet, civilians. Everybody from the attendees to the designers needs a special invite for this soiree, and fashion yields to nobody without at least a polka dot of industry street cred.
For new designers, that polka dot better be made of leather with Russian sable, or royal blue cashmere sewn with magical golden thread. A brand can only debut once, and without a flawless, memorable execution -- once might be all they have.
