Greetings from the tents! Er, greetings from outside the tents, because as of 9:15am this Friday morning—the first morning of Fashion Week—no one's being allowed in. This, after a backup at the credentials tent, has the gathered media and assorted masses in quite the mood. Just 45 minutes to the first show!
UPDATE 9:30AM: They've opened the doors at last. Sweet blessing! Aaaaand here we go.
