Day One of New York Fashion Week (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Nicholas K opened the week with a strong show -- the duo had come a long way since their gingham days. I'm quite excited to watch them grow. At Duckie Brown they showed blazers and a modern twist on the suit, with a clever eye on construction. W hotels helped Mara Hoffman show in the Box. She's going strong with a baby bump and some sweaters to die for. She stays true to her love of patterns and spot-on choice of fabric.

I had a blast at Luca Luca and spotted a model eating backstage! The show was wearable and chic. With my backstage pass, I got to see everything from make-up to the placing of the Luca Luca sign, model practice, then finally the show itself.

Amex does special events for their card members ( Platinum and Centurion) -- there'll be a dinner with Catherine Malandrino, and they'll get a chance to meet Jason Wu. I was lucky enough to attend the CFDA fashion show. Anna Wintour herself presided over the runway as the greatest hits of wearable fashion from Fashion Fund alums graced the catwalk -- members can buy the looks right off the catwalk.

Finally, it ended with Richie Rich. He opened with Tinsley Mortimer, closed with a glittering Johnny Weir and a sequined Jwoww.

This is my day in photos.
