The Liveliest Parties of New York Fashion Week
February 17, 2017
"Blame Winter Storm Niko, the exodus of some of New York’s most prominent designers to other cities and the unforgiving glare of social media. But there was less fun to go around this Fashion Week."

Brands like Rag & Bone and Baja East ditched the after-party, folding the drinking, dancing and Snapchatting into their shows. Alexander Wang might have understood this best with his highly conceptual No After-Party show, with beer kegs and disco lights. Party hopefuls were glued to their Instagram feeds in case a secret party materialized. (It didn’t.)"
