A Racked informant ventured to Bryant Park to scope out the preparations for Fashion Week, beginning this Friday. Her report: "Lo and behold, the big white tent is set in place right behind the New York Public Library. Red parking signs prohibiting non-fashion vehicles from Bryant Park cover the area, and there are trailers on all the streets. Alas, there's no sign of this year's fast food giant sponsor, but one Bryant Park visitor and his Big Mac lunch hinted at things to come." Only three days to go, people.
