Fashion Week: Where the Editors Sit


Who gives a damn who sits where at what fashion show? Oh, you just don’t understand:

“In no other creative field at no other moment, I would argue, is the relative worth of all the players as calculated and crystallized as it is in the ascending tiers of editors dispassionately observing a show. While a seat assignment in the front row has been blown out of a proportion as a sign that one has truly made it in this life, the seating chart as a whole is still overlooked as a map of your place within the (fashion) media firmament.”

We couldn’t have said it better. Wait, we did! Our Fashion Week spy Greg Lindsay dishes the dirt, naming names, and taking numbers (on seating charts).
