We expected to be bombarded with McDonald's McCafé promotions as soon as we walked into the tents this morning. But the fast-food eatery, which is now a big sponsor of Fashion Week, has been relegated to a small booth in a corner. The tiny space was complete chaos: no one seemed to notice that drip coffee was available at the front, and a crowd of people were shoving towards the counter where very patient and friendly baristas stood at the ready. The McCafé mocha? It's actually not that bad.
