Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
In an effort to make reading Racked as much like being in the tents as humanly possible, we'll be liveblogging the shows all week, from the suspense of waiting in line (will the seats be any good?) to the drama of the runway (will anyone stumble?) to the post-show euphoria. This time around: Quintessential New York style from Donna Karan.
Show location: Greenwich Street, West Village
The skinny: Practical clothing for the fashionable New Yorker
Celebs spotted: Anna Wintour, Grace Coddington, Rachel Zoe
The takeaway: Clothes we wish we could wear to work everyday. Lots of whites and greys in the form of feminine skirts, flowy dresses, and pantsuits.
2:08pm: Rachel Zoe is here! Everyone is wearing black.
2:10pm: Spotted Grace Coddington and someone walking in with their own camera and sound crew—from a reality show?
2:12pm: Anna Wintour! And the show is staring. The curtain's down and people are shushing each other.
2:32pm Lots of hats on models and disco-y music. I see a lot of whites and beiges in the collection.
2:34pm: Swishy orange dress. It got darker and Anna left her seat.
2:38pm: The models are coming down the runway. It's over.
