When said out loud, “Fashion Week” has a double meaning — and for anyone who’s ever been a part of all the action, feeling weak is not only par for the course, it’s often the reason we love fashion to begin with. So, in honor of the moments of chaos, beauty, and excitement that made us feel weak, we present My Fashion Week-ness: a compilation of accounts from some of the industry’s biggest players.
