As with many other things, when you're deep in the thick of Fashion Week, it's both exhilarating and mind-numbingly overwhelming, but hard to grasp its full scope. It's hard, from the eye of the hurricane, to fully assess the storm that surrounds you. This video montage--which is ultimately the sum of a staggering amount of juxtaposed still shots--is one of the best attempts I've seen to take the passing circus of fragmented, disjointed events and create a sense of cohesive order from the chaos. Oh look! There's a picture of that one guy, who always oh-so-conspicuously wears his array of Thom Browne's finest. There's the silently boastful girl and her tapestry-print Celine pants trying to play off an awkward run in with another girl wearing the exact same pants (laughing outside; crying inside). There's a Bruce Pask moment, and a Mr. Mort moment, and twiggy-legged models rushing to and fro from Milk Studios to Lincoln Center to some far off Pier west of the Meatpacking district and teetering on the edge of Manhattan. All those sights can blur, and Liam, of LiamSawThis captures it all beautifully--expertly highlighting the jumbled-up cacophony of fatuous glamor that makes up the annual cheek-kissing and deal-making. For those who want to know--not what it's actually like to attend Fashion Week--but what the memories of it feel like, check out this video below, it's pretty spot on.
