Fashion Week Diaries: Shirtless At Mackage

What: Mackage Fall 2009 show at Bryant Park

Sitting or Standing: Sitting – after an intern I went to high school with gave me a big “S[tanding]” card, I made myself comfortable in one of the many vacant third-row seats.

The Clothes: Mackage is the only outerwear designer that showed in the tents, and the relative monotony – everything was a jacket – was a little jarring. Still, every coat was well-designed and practical – something we rarely get to say at Fashion Week.

Alleged “Standing Room” Guests I Spotted in the Front Row: 5

Celeb Sightings: None, but I ran into Erin from The City on the way out. I'd say something snarky about The City, but she was really nice, so I'll just say that I might have once hung up on a potential date to watch the show.


Audience Trends: I was surrounded by three very bleached blondes, who I will choose to ignore in favor of the woman on my right, who was wearing a surprisingly pretty shade of gray nail polish. She lamented that it’s hard to find matte gray polish, but this soft shade from Rescue Beauty Lounge ($18) approximates her find pretty well.
