Now that New York Fashion Week is safely behind us, it's time for fashion journalists to weigh in on their favorite trends and shows. (Tough job, but somebody's got to do it.) New York Magazine has a clip of editors Harriet Mays Powell and Amy Larocca waxing poetic about Fall '09 trends. From it, we learn that Harriet hates the color mustard ('mustard—only on hot dogs'), Amy's coined the term 'shoulderpadarama' to describe the Marc Jacobs show, and that they both love love looooved Donna Karan and Derek Lam.
