If you haven't seen the hype (airbrushed-lace wigs! So many animal prints, ruffles and sweaters I want to steal! Store employees as models!), check out NY Mag's coverage of this insane event. For how I snuck backstage, stay here.
Sometimes, you just know you'll hate yourself if you don't take advantage of an opportunity. After the show, I noticed some guests headed toward the exit, and a few others walking backstage. I've been known to press my luck at concerts to meet my favorite bands, and decided, what's the worst that can happen?
How about a steady flow of champagne, schmoozing with the Pink Patch models and witnessing the incomparable Betsey Johnson and Patricia Field goof around like BFFs. I felt like a total creeper, but luckily no one asked me what I was doing or who I was!
I didn't get to meet Betsey, she was doing interviews and surrounded by people the entire time, but I am so glad I was able to witness her tremendous energy.

I can't wait until NYFW is a steady part of my life! The few hours that I experienced were so much fun, and Betsey Johnson was one hell of a crash-course.
