Racked National has uncovered the identity of mystery Twitterer @FashionweekNYC. Turns out the man with 24,921 people following him for insider knowledge about the NYC fashion industry is...just some dude. His name is Nathan Stobezki and he works at a retail research company based in Oregon when he's not running his website, My Own Runway. It seems like his access to closed-off Fashion Week shows and events comes from his friendship with the CEO of a major brand—possibly Bloomingdale's, according to our sister site's sleuthing.
