Refinery29 has taken a tour inside the Albright Fashion Library in the East Village, a giant fashion closet home to 7,000 pairs of shoes. Known as "the editor to the editors," Irene Albright's collection is a fashion Mecca to stylists, designers, and, of course, editors. Head over to see a slideshow filled with designer dresses, archival items, and all those shoes. [Refinery29]
