We're at the height of New York Fashion Week now, and while models parade through Manhattan and model-esque editors teetering in 6-inch heels are photographed for the Sartorialist, let's not forget or ignore the others who come with the fashion industry.

Fashion people with real fashion jobs:
Lynn Yaeger was, until recently, the fashion reporter for the Village Voice. She still moonlights all over the place within the fashion world, and is a porcelain-skinned mainstay at the Bryant Park tents, as is Richie Rich. He's half of the club-kid design duo behind Heatherette, and his life and work don't seem particularly separated by any constraints or reality checks.
Fashion people with less definable jobs:
Rosemary Ponzo is a stylist. Or a designer. It's hard to tell. Anyway, her website claims she's worked with Gwyneth Paltrow, and she sat a few rows in front of us at the Badgley Mischka show. Patrick McDonald writes for Paper magazine and goes to lots of parties.
